Galaxy S23 camera teaser highlights night photography with ‘moon mode’


New from Samsung Galaxy S23 cameras will benefit from a new focus on low-light and nighttime shooting, judging by leaked teaser videos.

The teasers, which have been leaked as gifs, include phrases like “Capture the night, even in low light,” “Stunning night photos soon,” and “Moonlight mode.” The double letters in the words “soon” and “moonlight” are replaced by the phone’s three camera lenses, which show starry night scenes and the moon.

While there will likely be a few new features that Samsung will be happy to crow about when it releases the Galaxy S23 – expected to be at its Unpacked event on February 1 – it seems that astrophotography and low-light performance could be in the foreground.

Another teaser, again leaked as a gif, features animated text saying “megapixels that will make you say wow” and “wow-worthy resolution coming soon”, suggesting that a new 200-megapixel sensor will be on board companies.

The Korean smartphone giant first debuted with the ISOCELL sensor capable of capturing giant 200-megapixel images in 2021 and released its latest version, the ISOCELL HP3, last June.

We’ve been expecting this sensor, which is also capable of shooting 8K video at 30fps, to be integrated into the Galaxy S23 for quite some time now. The Galaxy S22 Ultra already has a 108-megapixel sensor, so if the company is really aiming for resolution to make us say “wow,” a 200-megapixel sensor would be the next logical step forward.

Like us reported today, the leak from the body suggests that the sensors will indeed be larger, as the cutouts in the lenses are larger than the S22 Ultra’s body. It may be a small jump, but it’s very much in line with speculation we’ve had for months.
