Samsung is said to have used hardware and software improvements to improve the performance of its 108 MP ISOCELL HM3 camera sensor. The Galaxy S22 Ultra, also known as the Galaxy S22 Note, will be the first device to feature the upgrades.
Per a fresh report, the Samsung Galaxy S22’s photography will be improved, albeit through the use of software post-processing rather than bulky new hardware.
Ice Universe claims that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a “AI detail enhancement mode” for the main 108MP camera while taking photos at full resolution, based on prior leaks. IU shows us where to find the button to enable it in a screenshot of a contemporary Samsung phone with a 108MP camera (presumably a Galaxy S21 Ultra).
He also says that with the capability enabled, photographs will “have more details, colors and brightness than ordinary 108MP.”
The necessity of AI for the S22 Ultra’s camera is emphasized in a second Ice Universe tweet. According to IU, these improvements account for over 70% of the boost in the S22 Ultra’s photography, with only 30% coming from hardware upgrades.
It’s not so much a leak as it is a very safe bet that a phone’s cameras will be an improvement over the previous generation’s cameras. However, hearing just how they’ll improve is intriguing, and seeing Samsung place a renewed emphasis on AI-enhanced photography in light of the competition is crucial.
Despite the fact that the iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone 13 Pro, and Google 6 Pro do not have the same amount of sensors or a 108MP main camera resolution as the Galaxy S21 Ultra, they all rank higher in our top camera phones list.
Perhaps a renewed focus on post-production will help Samsung maintain its image quality dominance.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is expected to feature a camera configuration similar to the Galaxy S21 Ultra, with the exception of some sensors being replaced with newer versions with similar characteristics.
The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus are expected to have more significant improvements, including 50MP primary cameras and 3x optical zoom telephoto sensors.
Aside from the cameras, the speculations say that the body of all three Galaxy S22 versions would undergo substantial alterations.
The S22 and S22 Plus are expected to be smaller than their 2021 counterparts, while the S22 Ultra is expected to be squarer and wider, with an integrated S Pen stylus. This is why we’re particularly interested in seeing if the Ultra will be Samsung’s successor to the Galaxy Note range.
According to other speculations, the S22 line will feature either Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or Exynos 2200 chipsets, depending on the area. The S22 and S22 Plus will likely have 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, while the S22 Ultra will have 12GB or 16GB RAM and 256 or 512GB storage.
The most recent information we have on an S22 series release date is that it has been postponed significantly, but just until February 9, 2022.
Pre-orders will apparently begin on this day, although the official retail launch is expected on February 25th.
