Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra case leak reveals larger camera sensors

With just days left for what is being considered one of the biggest and most anticipated smartphone launches of the year so far, here is another leak that gives us a clearer image of what the camera setting of Galaxy S23 Ultra is going to be like. Thanks to the reputed and usually reliable Samsung leakster Ice Universe, we now have images of cases purported to be that of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra which interestingly has already gone on pre-order even though the phone is yet to go official.

Also, as the images of the case reveal, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will also have a similar arrangement for the rear cameras. That includes the lack of a separate and distinct camera module as such with each sensor housed directly within the rear panel. However, while the number of sensors and their placement remains exactly the same, what has come as a huge surprise is that the sensor itself is quite larger this time. We have come across rumors earlier claiming the Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature a 200 MP sensor, which it seems is going to be true given the increase in the size of the camera sensors.

So far, we know the 200 MP Samsung ISOCELL HP2 sensor that likely will make it to the Galaxy S22 Ultra measures 1/1.3 inches. It also comes with pixels of 0.6μm dimension and has an f/1.7 aperture. For comparison’s sake, the current Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra comes with a 108 MP sensor having 0.8µm pixels and an f/1.8 aperture.

Meanwhile, another change to be expected is a slight change in the placement of the power and the volume buttons. The case reveals both the buttons are going to sit a little lower than what they are at the moment. That way, you won’t have to stretch your fingers that much to reach out to both the keys, something that has been a niggling issue with the current crop of Galaxy S22 phones.

Also, it is good to see Samsung paying heed to user feedback and making the necessary changes wherever applicable, howsoever small it might be. The flagship phones are rumored to launch in February 1, which means it is just a few weeks left before we get to the bottom of this.
