The Galaxy 23 Ultra’s selfie camera looks like a downgrade


Samsung Galaxy S23 will be released in early 2023, and new rumors suggest that Samsung may significantly lower the resolution of the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s camera.

According to A Galactic Club report (through GSM Arena), the company may opt for a 12-megapixel front-facing camera instead of a 40-megapixel camera as part of Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The report says that this will be the same as the 12-megapixel camera of the entry-level Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus. That would be more than 10 megapixels in the 2022 versions of the phone.

Of course, megapixels aren’t everything, so we’d expect Samsung to make some pretty significant improvements elsewhere when it comes to the selfie camera. Maybe it will finally add autofocus.

Second, according to a well-followed Twitter account @TheGalox_, Samsung may delay the launch for a week or two as the final price is yet to be decided. Initial expectations were for a launch event in the first week of Februarybut now it might slip a bit.

According to the insider, Samsung is conflicted about whether to raise prices in line with inflation or keep them in line with prices for the 2022 range.

The account reads: “S23 series release mid-late February. A decision on the price of the devices is delaying this release. If it were up to me, the prices would be $799, $899, and $1,199.”

Elsewhere, the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s cameras may include a 200-megapixel Samsung sensor and a 10-megapixel 3x telephoto camera, as well as a 10-megapixel periscope. A sample leakage from the main chamber suggests that some big improvements are on the way.
