Although the Galaxy S23 phones from Samsung are still a long way off, we have already heard a lot about what the hardware may entail. An enhanced 12MP front camera for the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ may be coming, according to a story from last week. We’ve also heard a little about how the future flagship might use a 200MP back camera to boost the ante in the megapixel warfare – at least on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The telephoto lens on the S23 and S23+ is now the focus of our camera rumours, which indicate that the South Korean manufacturer will remain with the Galaxy S22’s 10MP camera for its entry-level versions.

According to GalaxyClub, the Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ will use the same 10MP telephoto camera as its forerunners. We don’t yet know if the S23 series will remain with the same technology or attempt something a little different, but the S22 models couple that 10MP sensor with a 3x optical lens. Additionally, we are still awaiting details on the primary and ultrawide sensors that these phones will employ.


Considering what we now know, the 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor that was introduced last year may be used in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Even though Samsung unveiled the ISOCELL HP3 earlier this month, it’s safe to assume that smartphones have a ways to go before this sensor will be available. Our best bet is that the more recent ISOCELL sensor will likely debut in the early part of 2024.

Given that Samsung only improved the sensor with the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ earlier this year, keeping the 10MP telephoto camera on the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ would be acceptable. As for the primary back camera on the entry-level and mid-range Galaxy S23 models, Samsung may decide to keep with the S22’s camera, a 50MP device that also made its debut with hardware from the previous generation.

Generally speaking, the Galaxy S23 range won’t be available for at least seven months. However, it frequently happens for leaks to surface well in advance, beginning to provide a little clearer picture of the company’s goals. Although we have great hopes for Samsung in 2023, there is still a lot to look forward to, including the highly anticipated Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4, which are scheduled to launch on sale in August.
