The Samsung Galaxy S23 series could have loads of new and upgraded camera features

Most leaks suggest the camera hardware on the Samsung Galaxy S23 series won’t be improving much – with the exception of a new 200MP sensor on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. But the software and modes could be in for some big changes.

According to SamMobile, Samsung is planning a number of new features and improvements for the cameras on the S23 series; including the ability to shoot hyperlapse videos of the sky, with the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Samsung is also reportedly adding a Pro mode to the front-facing camera on the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, so you’ll have more control over your selfies, and the trio of phones will also reportedly allow you to save RAW photos in 50MP resolution according to this same source; in the past, this has typically been limited to 12MP.

It sounds like the latter two changes will probably come to all three Samsung Galaxy S23 models, with the hyperlapse sky video capture being an Ultra exclusive.

On top of all that, leaker @UniverseIce has shared short promotional videos, teasing the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra’s cameras.

One of these videos teases a “wow-worthy resolution,” which is probably referring to the 200MP camera we’ve widely heard the S23 Ultra will possess, while the other says that “stunning night photos are coming,” and we’ve previously heard a source say that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will be able to take superb low light shots.

Interestingly, while these seem likely to be referring to the S23 Ultra, they show three camera lenses, which is the number we’re expecting on the standard Samsung Galaxy S23 and the S23 Plus – with the Ultra likely to have four, as on the last three generations. So perhaps we could see low light image quality improved on the standard and Plus models too.

We’ll find out for sure soon, as Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S23 series will be unveiled on February 1.

Analysis: you might not need a Samsung Galaxy S23 to get some of these upgrades

Hopefully, these leaks are accurate, as they suggest the Samsung Galaxy S23 series might get quite a few camera upgrades, but these might not be a reason to upgrade your phone just yet.

Samsung often adds new camera features to older models through software updates too, so many of the things mentioned above could potentially make their way to the Galaxy S22 series and other Samsung phones, as well.

Indeed, SamMobile specifically notes that some of these things could arrive on older devices through software updates.

Of course, you’re not going to get more megapixels through software, and there will be limits to how much Samsung can improve low light shots without changing the hardware, but things like 50MP RAW photos and a Pro mode for the selfie camera could almost certainly be added to existing phones. So even the current crop of best Samsung phones have the potential to get even better, very soon.

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

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
