Samsung Leaks Major Galaxy S23 Ultra Upgrade As Pre-Orders Go Live


Samsung’s soon-to-be-released Galaxy S23 Ultra is tipped to receive some compelling camera improvements. Now a new promo video, direct from Samsung itself, teases ‘stunning night photos’ from the next-gen Galaxy flagship as pre-orders go live.

The fifteen-second video, titled “Made for Mooonlight” (note the three ‘o’s), focuses on three of the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s (reportedly huge) rear camera lenses before displaying the text “capture the night even in low light,” followed by “stunning night photos are coming soon.” Imagery present in the video, including shoots of the moon and the milky way, suggest strong astrophotography capabilities.

No explicit mention is made of any specific hardware upgrades, but the focus on the three cameras tallies with an earlier leak in which the flagship Galaxy is tipped to feature noticeably larger rear camera lenses than its predecessor, the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra is also tipped to feature a new 200-megapixel main camera sensor along with improved ‘daily mode’ photos, improved sharpness at 10x zoom, and more natural processing according to previous leaks. Meanwhile, the front-facing camera is expected to see a reduction in megapixels, although I can’t imagine Samsung would allow this to lead to a reduction in quality, given the focus on photography in its latest promo.

Now we know that Samsung is promoting the strength of its new smartphone’s night photography in its first official promo, we can expect a significant boost in camera performance. Potentially larger lenses, combined with the additional processing power of Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, are no-doubt key to any improved low-light performance from the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

You can pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra now, ahead of its launch this Feb 1.
