The next Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is anticipated to sport a 50MP 3x telephoto camera with a 1/2.52′′ sensor, according to renowned insider Ice Universe, who made the announcement last week. Samsung could probably get better 5x zoom image quality with this sensor.
This has led to rumors that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will have a 5x telephoto lens instead of the 3x lens seen on the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Ice Universe has reported that Samsung will keep the 10MP 10x periscope camera from the S23 Ultra, along with the 200MP primary sensor and the 12MP front-facing camera, even though the company is upgrading from the 10MP 3x telephoto module. It is still unknown if the S24 Ultra will include the 12MP ultrawide module from the S23 Ultra.
Beyond describing the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra’s 50MP telephoto camera, Ice Universe has indicated an improved display, however precise upgrades have not been specified. In the upcoming months, we can expect more in-depth information on this subject.
In addition, Samsung just released an update to its Camera Assistant software that adds a 2x zoom crop capability to the current Galaxy S23 model range. The default Camera app smoothly incorporates this 2x zoom setting.
Notably, Samsung notes that this is a complexly designed zoom option rather than a simple standard crop.
Samsung’s Galaxy Store now offers the Camera Assistant version 1.1.03.1 for download, which the firm advertises as a “Optical Quality Crop Zoom.”
Samsung continues by describing how this innovative addition works as a sensor-level crop while leveraging the features of the main camera. In actuality, this ought to produce images of comparable quality to those captured by the unique 3x and 10x telephoto cameras.
