Despite looking similar to the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the S23 Ultra is the first Samsung phone to have a 200-megapixel camera.
The much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is finally here. Despite looking very similar to the Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung introduced a major camera upgrade on the S23 Ultra with a new 200-megapixel main camera.
The new camera comes with an updated Super Quad Pixel Autofocus system that aims to deliver faster and more accurate autofocus performance compared to previous Ultra models. You also get to shoot 8K video at a native 30FPS, along with improved low-light capabilities to make the Galaxy S23 Ultra a great cameraphone for night shooting and astrophotography.
The selfie camera is now a 12-megapixel affair. Despite the lower megapixel count, Samsung claims that it is better than the 40-megapixel ones used on previous Ultra models, adding features like Super HDR for better dynamic range with all of your selfies.
For the internals, the Galaxy S23 Ultra comes equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor that’s made exclusively for the entire Galaxy S23 series. It comes with 12GB RAM and up to a whopping 1TB of storage. Like its predecessor, you still have a 5000mAh battery with 45w charging, along with a premium armor aluminum frame and a 6.8-inch QHD+ 120hz curved AMOLED display that has S-Pen support.
