Many rumors from the past few weeks have been confirmed, with the device coming with a 200MP camera and ditching the Exynos processor in favor of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
In more detail, starting from the appearance and size, we do not see any major differences compared to last year’s device. The size is the same, the weight is about the same (5 grams heavier) and the back is the same – the lenses are in matrix and protrude slightly, rather than being housed in one big bump. The S Pen comes with the device and resides inside when not in use, as was the case with last year’s model.
In cameras, the most significant change is in the primary wide camera, which now has a 200MP sensor. The company promises images of excellent quality and detail, with professional accuracy. The image captured at 200MP can be cropped and keep the quality very high, very useful in situations where zooming is not easy. Adaptive Pixel technology switches between 12MP, 50MP, and 200MP to automatically select image quality based on the occasion. Night photography is also improved in both photography and videography, as the Galaxy S23 Ultra has improved optical stabilization, an f/1.7 aperture, and a larger sensor (1/1.3″).
The front camera uses new AI technology to keep colors and textures intact, and the results look great considering it stays at 12MP. The main camera comes with a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens and two telephoto lenses – one that offers 3x optical zoom and the other 10x optical zoom. The large optical zoom and high-resolution main camera will certainly interest those who are professionally engaged in photography and want the convenience of a smartphone.
Two more modes are moving in this direction: Pro Mode and Expert RAW. Upgraded to Galaxy S23 Ultra to deliver RAW quality on 50MP photos. The “double exposure” function (reminiscent of the Polaroid effect) is also supported, as well as astrophotography, provided there is a tripod for the latter.
Apart from photography, the rest of the changes are more or less expected: better processor, better autonomy and build improvements. In particular, the company completely bypasses Exynos processors and equips the device with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor (4 nm) and an improved cooling system. The battery reaches 5000 mAh and remains the same as the previous model, but Snapdragon is expected to offer better autonomy.
The screen remains at 6.8 inches with strict corners, which is where most smartphones are with rounded corners. This, along with the small selfie camera, makes the screen ideal for watching videos and multitasking, especially if a stylus is also used. The Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel is again favored, with an automatically adjustable refresh rate of 1-120Hz. For the screen and back, Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 was chosen, and the frame of the device is made of Armor Aluminum, as the company calls it.
The RAM/ROM combinations for the Galaxy S23 Ultra are as follows: 8GB/256GB, 12GB/512GB, and 12GB/1TB. It will be released in our country from February 17, in four colors, with prices starting from 1449 euros for the 256 GB model and is now the base model. The 512GB and 1TB models are priced at €1,629 and €1,829, respectively, while the 512GB version is available in the pre-order period at a price of 256GB.
