Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could arrive with 200MP camera sensor

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could arrive with 200MP camera sensor

Towards the tail end of 2021, Samsung announced its first 200MP camera sensor for smartphones. This particular sensor has yet to make its debut on a device, but it appears that something better might have already eclipsed it. According to a new report from South Korean-based publication ETNews, an updated version of the 200MP sensor is near completion and will reportedly debut in a future flagship smartphone — like the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra — in 2023.

Despite the impressive specifications of Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1, Samsung Electronics Mobile Communications and Electro-Mechanics division are reportedly nearing completion of an updated version, which is being dubbed the ISOCELL HP3. It’s unknown at this time what kind of improvements the updated ISOCELL HP3 will bring. However, the sensor will come in at 200-megapixels, making it one of the largest sensors found in any smartphone. Both divisions will share responsibilities in manufacturing, with the company’s mobile division responsible for 30 percent, while the Electro-Mechanics division taking on the bulk of the work with the remaining 70 percent.

In 2020, Samsung debuted its 108MP camera sensor on its Galaxy S20 Ultra. The following year, it would retain the same sensor for its Galaxy S21 Ultra. Samsung then again kept the same 108MP sensor for its Galaxy S22 Ultra. Despite Samsung being a leader in the megapixel race, far beyond most of its competitors, the company could look to up the ante in 2023. If it chooses to update to the rumored 200MP sensor, it could breathe new life into its flagship line’s camera equipment.

Of course, we’re still early in the process, so it is unknown which smartphone the new ISOCELL HP3 will make its debut. But, if the date is any indication, it will most likely make an appearance in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Keep in mind though that when it comes to rumors, anything can happen, and this could all change. Hopefully, there will be more information in the months to come, giving us a better look at Samsung’s plans for the future.

Twitter has hidden the chronological feed on iOS again – and I'm furious

In a controversial move, Twitter has brought back a feature that removes the 'Latest Tweets' view for users on iOS, which is something that many users, including me, hated back in March 2022 – and it's now rolling out. The first time the company decided to do this, 'Home' would appear first in a tab at the top, and there was no way of changing it so that 'Latest Tweets' would be the default view. It was reverted back after the company said it was a 'bug' for iOS users. This time though, it's no bug. Instead, it's 'For You' and 'Following' where you can only swipe between them now, which doesn't make much sense for a platform where you're using the platform to keep up to date with who you follow. It's a bizarre change that makes me ask – who wants this, especially during a time when its new owner, Elon Musk, is bringing in and reversing changes almost every week still? This one change will have big consequenc

Port of Lisbon hit by ransomware attack

One of Europe’s busiest seaports, the Port of Lisbon, has been hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some of its digital systems offline. "All safety protocols and response measures provided for this type of occurrence were quickly activated, the situation being monitored by the National Cybersecurity Center and the Judicial Police," a statement shared by the Port of Lisbon Administration (APL) with local media earlier this week said. The incident failed to impact the port’s operations, but did take its official website,, offline. LockBit taking responsibility "The Port of Lisbon Administration is working permanently and closely with all competent entities in order to guarantee the security of the systems and respective data," the statement concludes. While the company doesn’t explicitly say it was targeted with ransomware, the LockBit ransomware operator has added APL to its leaks website, taking responsibility for the hit.  The databas

This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptominers and DDoS bots

Cybersecurity researchers have spotted a new Linux malware downloader that targets poorly defended Linux servers with cryptocurrency miners and DDoS IRC bots. Researchers from ASEC discovered the attack after the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) used to create the downloader was uploaded to VirusTotal. Apparently, Korean users were the ones uploading the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are targets, as well. Further analysis has shown that the threat actors are going after poorly defended Linux servers, brute-forcing their way into administrator accounts over SSH.  Mining Monero Once they make their way in, they’ll either install a cryptocurrency miner, or a DDoS IRC bot. The miner being deployed is XMRig, arguably the most popular cryptocurrency miner among hackers. It uses the computing power of a victim's endpoints to generate Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency whose transactions are seemingly impossible to track, and whose users are allegedly impossible to identify.

Code-generating tools could be more of a security hindrance than help

New research by a group of Stanford-affiliated researchers has uncovered that code-generating AI tools such as Github Copilot can present more security risks than many users may realize. The study looked specifically at Codex, a product of OpenAI, of which Elon Musk is among the co-founders.  Codex powers the Microsoft-owned GitHub Copilot platform, which is designed to make coding easier and more accessible by translating natural language into code and suggesting changes based on contextual evidence. AI-coding problems Lead co-author of the study, Neil Perry, explains that “code-generating systems are currently not a replacement for human developers”. The study asked 47 developers of differing abilities to use Codex for security-related problems, using Python, JavaScript and C programming languages. It concluded that the participants who relied on Codex were more likely to write insecure code compared with a control group. Read more > These are the best laptops for progr
