Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra to sport an improved 108MP primary sensor

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra featured a 108MP sensor alongside three other cameras at the back and it seems like Samsung is planning to build the Galaxy S22 Ultra sensors on the same model as its predecessor. The smartphone is tipped to debut in January and ahead of the official unveil, we have already received leaked renders and camera details of the top-of-the-line model.

According to the tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce on Twitter), the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature a similar quad-camera setup as the Galaxy S21 Ultra. It is said to come equipped with an improved 108MP primary camera. The upcoming smartphone might have the following camera specifications:

Samsung just announced 3 new Android tablets. Here’s a first look
Someone holding the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Plus.

Samsung has a fresh portfolio of tablets to take on the iPad lineup. These flagship Android slates span three size formats and price points. The new Galaxy Tab S9 trio is nearly identical in heft and footprint to the Galaxy Tab S8 series, save for a minor design tweak, a new chip, and fresh color options.

The pill-shaped camera island is gone, and we now have a floating lens look that's similar to that of the Galaxy S23 series phones. Plus, there’s an eye-pleasing beige color option to pick from this year. The rest of the package is a modest iterative upgrade at best.

The back of the Galaxy S23 Ultra and Zenfone 10.

Ahead of going away for a few days, I decided to swap from the phone I’d just finished reviewing to the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, ensuring I had a great camera with me while on my break. Nothing odd about that, right? Usually, no, except I was coming from the diminutive Asus Zenfone 10, and picking up the S23 Ultra afterward felt like I'd chosen to take a 12.9-inch iPad Pro as my replacement device.

For a short while, the Galaxy S23 Ultra's enormous dimensions bordered on the laughably unmanageable. But then, it redeemed itself in the best way possible.

The Samsung Galaxy Note changed the mobile industry when it arrived, and it became a firm favorite with a lot of people. Its committed, passionate fanbase is perhaps only rivaled by those who love the iPhone.

But all that was a long time ago, and now in mid-2023, I’m very glad Samsung killed the Note when it did.
