The Samsung Galaxy S22 series’ camera modules have been the subject of numerous leaks, with the rumored specifications evolving over time. The Galaxy S22 Ultra configuration received the most attention, but today leakster Ice Universe revealed the camera’s vanilla and plus models, which will both employ the same technology.
The main camera has a 50 MP sensor, a 1/1.57″ sensor with 1.0 m pixels, and an f/1.8 aperture. This time, it appears that the Samsung GN5 and Sony IMX766 sensors will be used. The main 12MP camera on the S21 and S21+, for example, has a 1/1.76″ sensor with 1.8m pixels. The Galaxy S22 series will, of course, use pixel binning, therefore the effective pixel size at 12.5MP resolution will be 2.0 m.
The telephoto camera will convert from lossless digital zoom to a more traditional optical zoom with 3x magnification (f/2.4 aperture) instead of the existing lossless digital zoom. This will be a 10MP sensor with 1.0m pixels and a 1/3.94″ optical format.
A 12MP sensor for the ultra-wide camera – 1/2.55″ in size with 1.4m pixels and an f/2.2 aperture – will join them. This is nearly identical to the S21 series. The selfie camera will be the same as in the S21/S21+, with a 10MP (1/3.24″, 1.22m) sensor with an f/2.2 aperture.
A recent leak revealed the Galaxy S22 Ultra camera. In a nutshell, there’s a 108MP primary camera (with an upgraded HM3 sensor), a 12MP ultra-wide, a 10MP 10x periscope, and a 10MP 3x telephoto module (which appears to be different from the S22/S22+ one). Like the previous two Ultras, the selfie camera is expected to sport a 40MP resolution.
According to the Cat, the Samsung Galaxy S22 will have a 6.06″ display, while the S22+ will have a 6.55″ display. A size comparison of screen protectors for them may be seen here. The Ultra’s display is believed to be curved, while the other two should have flat displays.
