The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could have more camera upgrades than expected

For months now we’ve been hearing that the main – and perhaps only – camera upgrade on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra would be a new 200MP primary sensor, but a leak now suggests that we might see improvements to two of the other rear lenses, as well.

Seemingly official leather cases for the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra are being sold on the German eBay site – as spotted by leaker SnoopyTech – and at first glance they look like they could fit a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

But @UniverseIce – another leaker – has posted an image of one of these side by side with the equivalent case for the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and there are some clear differences.

As well as the power and volume buttons being slightly lower on the new cases, the three largest camera lens cut-outs are bigger than on the case for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Assuming the cameras are arranged in the same way on the S23 Ultra, that means the main lens, the ultra-wide and the periscope lens could all be bigger this year.

In the case of the main camera, that’s no surprise, since reports suggest it’s moving from a 108MP sensor to a new 200MP one, but for the additional sensors, we’d once again see a 12MP ultra-wide camera and a 10MP periscope, with 10x optical zoom.

Of course, we still might see those things. These case images might be inaccurate, and even if they’re right, there’s a high chance Samsung has just upped the size of the other lenses to make them more uniform, without actually improving the cameras behind. But it gives us hope that there might be some unknown upgrades.

Analysis: with or without additional upgrades, the S23 Ultra will be the camera phone to beat in 2023

While we’d love to see Samsung make meaningful improvements to the ultra-wide and telephoto cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, even without those things, this is likely to be the best camera phone on the planet when it launches.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra currently tops our list of the best camera phones, so unless Samsung really drops the ball with this rumored 200MP sensor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is likely to take its place at the top of the list.

Samsung’s zoom photography is already way ahead of the competition too, so the company probably doesn’t have much incentive to improve the telephoto cameras right now, and with four lenses to play with, the S22 Ultra is already a more versatile camera phone than most flagships.

So while these case images give us some hope that we’ll see additional upgrades to the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra’s cameras, there’s a high chance we won’t, and that won’t stop this being the ultimate camera phone.

Still, if there are minimal upgrades then that gives the likes of the iPhone 15 and other anticipated phones the chance to catch up.

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
