There are plenty of leaks surrounding the upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra, and they all point to a seemingly unaltered camera setup. Still, there will be plenty to look forward to on the S22 Ultra in terms of camera features, as hinted by a new leak. In this post, we will be looking at all the camera features of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Hardware features

As you may know by now, Samsung is getting rid of the extended camera bump here. The new design allows the company to fit in the stylus without increasing the phone’s thickness, while also giving it a new look.

That being said, S22 Ultra is not looking any different than its predecessor in terms of camera resolutions. Samsung already has a 200MP image sensor with Dual Pixel Pro technology in the form of ISOCELL GN5. However, we will have to wait another year to see it in Galaxy smartphones.

Talking about the Galaxy S22 Ultra, it will still feature a 108MP primary camera, accompanied by a 12MP ultrawide sensor and two telephoto lenses. This camera lineup looks identical to that of this year’s Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Samsung could possibly use new sensors or optimize the existing ones for better performance. As per the latest leak by Ahmed Qwaider, S22 Ultra will bring major improvements in camera stability and cinematography.

Software improvements

According to him, Samsung has improved video stability by up to 58% on the S22 Ultra. In addition, it will be including a new AI feature called “Wide Shift OIS” which reduces shakes by four times.

As for cinematography, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be able to take 12-bit videos, but we don’t know the corresponding frame rate yet. Samsung is also upgrading the HDR to Super HDR. In addition, it is adding a new “Super ISO Pro” mode with improved lighting and superior colors.

This new leak aligns perfectly with the recent Ice Universe tweets about S22 Ultra’s camera. As per Ice Universe, Samsung is focusing more on software this time around with AI backing many of the new features.
