At least one Galaxy S23 camera may not be updated


The Galaxy S23 and S23+ might not be for you if you were looking for a more powerful telephoto lens.

What you should know

  • The Galaxy S23 might use the same telephoto lens as the Galaxy S22.
  • Previous rumors suggest a better, higher-resolution selfie camera.
  • The wide and ultrawide cameras have not been given any information.

Since its launch is still probably more than six months away, information on the Galaxy S23 has been quietly coming out. The more information we gather about the cameras, though, the more inconsistent this future series seems to be.

According to the most recent tip, which comes from GalaxyClub (via SamMobile), the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus may not get any improvements to the telephoto camera lens compared to the Galaxy S22 series. We will most likely have the same 10MP resolution and 3X zoom range as before.


While most users will undoubtedly be satisfied with that, some may have hoped for a resolution or zoom range increase, particularly in light of the fact that some of the top Android phones offer more megapixels (on all three cameras) and superior zoom capabilities. The Galaxy S21, for example, included a 64MP telephoto camera but primarily used digital/hybrid zoom. However, because the Galaxy S22 basic and Plus models now have a 50MP primary camera, it’s uncertain what the future holds for the other two cameras.

The Galaxy S23 and S23+ may include a front-facing camera with a greater resolution, which might improve the quality of selfies.

Regarding the Galaxy S23 Ultra, it was previously assumed that Samsung’s new 200MP HP3 ISOCELL sensor, which the firm recently introduced, would be featured on the top model. However, recent rumors from leaker Ice Universe claimed that the phone will not come with the upgraded lens. However, it doesn’t rule out the chance that Samsung may choose to use its larger HP1 sensor.


There’s a fair probability that additional specific details will surface between now and the debut of the Galaxy S23 next year since there is still plenty of time.
