Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra tipped for a major night vision camera upgrade

When it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S23 series of phones launching soon, it seems that the Ultra model will once again have the biggest upgrades attached to it – and those upgrades apparently include "night vision" capabilities in terms of its cameras.

This comes via well-respected leaker Ice Universe, who took to Twitter to "emphasize again that the S23 Ultra's night camera is really 'night vision'". That sounds like seriously good low light photography capabilities to us.

What we don't get here are any indications of what exactly the camera modules on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will include, but previous leaks have pointed to a quad-lens 108MP+12MP+12MP+2MP rear camera on this particular smartphone.

Get the picture

It would seem Ice Universe has got access to an early Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra unit, or been able to access images captured by it: the same source has previously posted a photo comparison between the Galaxy S23 Ultra and the Google Pixel 7 Pro.

In the past we've also heard Ice Universe talk about "greatly improved" low light capture capabilities for both photos and videos. This is clearly an upgrade that's going to be noticeable, and should make the Ultra one of the best phones around for camera quality.

Photos and videos taken in daylight aren't left out either, because there are rumored to be improvements here too. All will be revealed when the Galaxy S23 phones are launched, which should happen in the first few days of February.

Analysis: a key flagship feature

There's no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S23 phones are going to bring with them a host of improvements over their predecessors – including performance upgrades – otherwise Samsung might as well just keep the Galaxy S22 range of handsets on sale.

However, the low light photography capabilities of the Galaxy S23 phones are well worth paying attention to. Being able to snap photos and videos in difficult lighting conditions is one of the main ways that high-end flagship phones differ from budget devices that are going to cost you far less.

While the best cheap phones usually offer a lot of value for money, decent performance and very respectable camera setups, you'll often find that it's taking photos and videos in the dark where they start to struggle. If you need the very best night-time shots then you probably need a flagship smartphone.

It's an area that handsets such as the Google Pixel series excel in, including the aforementioned Google Pixel 7 Pro. If the night vision capabilities of the Galaxy S23 Ultra are as good as that, we're going to be impressed.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
