Apart from the 200MP camera sensor on the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Samsung might not bring any significant camera improvement on the hardware level. However, we can still expect improved image and video quality, thanks to a better chipset and improved software. The company will reportedly make 8K videos smoother.
According to tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce), Samsung will offer 8K video recording with a frame rate of 30fps. The Galaxy S20, Galaxy S21, and the Galaxy S22 series offer 8K 24fps video recording. So, 8K videos shot using the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra will be slightly smoother.
Some rumors claimed that the Galaxy S23 Ultra would feature sensor-shift OIS, similar to the iPhone 14 Pro, for improved image stabilization. However, we are not sure how accurate those rumors are. Some other reports claim that the Galaxy S23 series will feature improved white balance, higher details, and improved saturation.
8K video recording isn’t a forte of smartphone cameras due to the lack of video stabilization, narrower dynamic range, and lower frame rate. However, it is expected to improve in the coming years as sensors get bigger and ISPs (Image Signal Processor) inside processors get more powerful.
