Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra review camera

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra might be the most disappointing phone of 2024

When you think of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, one of the first things that probably comes to mind is 10x optical zoom, as this is a feature that Samsung reserves for its Ultra phones and that almost no other phone can match. But it’s also a feature that Samsung might surprisingly abandon on the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra.

This according to the leaker @UniverseIceby posting on X (formerly known as Twitter), which has a reasonable track record of leaks.

They don’t say what will be offered in its place, but for reference the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra has a 200MP main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 10MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, and a 10MP periscope, which offers 10x optical zoom. . So he is the last of those who may be absent.

However, let’s take this with a pinch of salt, for many reasons, starting with the fact that it seems like a very strange thing to do.

10x zoom is one of the main features of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, so abandoning it would definitely damage the phone’s popularity. Unless, of course, it’s been replaced with something better, like 15x zoom, but @UniverseIce’s post seems more negative than that.

Now it seems more important than ever that Samsung maintains this feature, as Apple just launched the iPhone 15 Pro Max with 5x optical zoom, bringing this rival brand closer to Samsung’s zoom capabilities than ever before.

Beyond that, we’re not sure how confident the source actually is in this statement. They recently said the same thing before deleting the post, and have previously made numerous conflicting claims about the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra’s camera system.

In fact, so far there hasn’t been much agreement on what cameras the Galaxy S24 Ultra will have. The reason is unclear: perhaps the company tested a number of different options. But it means there is a high probability that this leak is wrong.

We certainly hope so, because the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is one of the best camera phones and the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra may have a hard time matching it without a 10x zoom.
