Samsung Galaxy S23Ultra real machine hands-on, 200 million pixels can also record 8K video?

As a strong contender for the new generation of mobile phones of the year, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series is scheduled to be released globally on February 1st. Overseas bloggers’ hands-on videos of real phones are emerging one after another, which is very in line with Samsung’s consistent “secrecy” specifications. The latest blogger broke the news about the hands-on picture of the real machine, confirming that the Galaxy S23Ultra is equipped with a 200-megapixel main camera, which supports up to 8K 30-frame video recording, and the file size may break the industry record.

The picture shows that the main camera of the Samsung Galaxy S23Ultra is 200 million pixels, which usually defaults to 12.5 million pixels or 50 million pixels, and the user manually turns it on when 200 million pixels are needed. It may be affected by light or distance, and obvious noise can be seen in the preview frame. For better shooting effects, further optimization is required, and the advantages of high pixels cannot be fully utilized.

In video recording mode, the Galaxy S23Ultra can enable up to 8K 30-frame high-definition recording. The estimated file size is larger than previous models, and a 1TB super-large storage version is required. With the advancement of smartphone image specifications, the 128GB storage version will gradually be phased out, completely withdrawing from the historical stage of high-end smartphones, and the storage capacity is really not enough.

The 200-megapixel lens of the new machine is the first HM2 sensor, with a 1/1.3-inch photosensitive unit, and the unit pixel is only 0.6μm. This may also be the reason for the high noise in the 200-megapixel mode, which has nothing but high resolution. In the daily use environment, the mobile phone will default to the 4-in-1 50-megapixel mode, and the night scene will be adjusted to the 16-in-1 25-megapixel mode to increase the sensitivity.

In addition to the main camera lens, the Samsung Galaxy S23Ultra is equipped with two 10-megapixel IMX754 telephoto lenses, which are respectively responsible for 3x optical zoom and 10x optical zoom. The first 12-megapixel Sony IMX564 ultra-wide-angle lens, there is very little news about this lens at present, and the specific performance needs to be announced at the press conference.

A careful comparison reveals that Samsung and domestic imaging have embarked on different paths. Samsung emphasizes the full-featured high-pixel mode. The previous generations of super-large cups were equipped with a 108-megapixel main camera, and the new machine has been upgraded to a 200-megapixel main camera. Domestic mobile phones put more emphasis on high-quality outsoles. The new flagship phones generally come standard with the Sony IMX989 main camera, which has a 1-inch super-large photosensitive unit, and the specifications of the auxiliary lens are also relatively high.

The two roads are diametrically opposed. Each brand chooses the direction it thinks is right to develop. It is not yet clear which one is better and which is worse. It can be tested after the new phone is released. But it is certain that there is nothing wrong with the development direction of the image of the whole scene, especially the addition of the telephoto lens is very practical. The bottleneck, everyone began to “roll” the video.

Friends, which one do you think is the right direction for Samsung’s 200-megapixel or the one-inch outsole lens for domestic mobile phones?
