Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 +: So will your new cameras

The presentation of the new Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 + is still scheduled for sometime next month January 2022, that is, it should take place within a month and a half, approximately, and will be available in February 2022. While we wait for Samsung to decide to present them, finally, in society, we continue to review some of the most interesting and most important leaks, and this time we have come across a good dose of information related to their cameras.

It is no secret that cameras have become one of the most important elements in the smartphone sector. More and more users prefer to opt for a smartphone with better cameras, although it is less powerful, than for another that is more powerful, and even more economical, but that lacks at the camera level. This has a lot to do with the fact that, today, the smartphone has become our particular camera, and our link with the world, and with social networks.

With all of the above in mind, we are not surprised that Samsung is preparing changes in the configuration of cameras that will bring the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 +. According to this new rumor, which comes from Ice Universe, one of the best known and most reliable sources in the Samsung universe, both terminals will come equipped with a common configuration that starts from a simple base: three specialized lenses.

Before going into the matter I want to remind you of something important, and that is that according to this same source, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 + will have a design similar to that of the iPhone 13, but with the particularity that they will not have the classic front notch that Apple’s flagship still maintains.

Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 +: An important leap at the camera level

This becomes evident when we see that the main rear lens of both models will use a sensor of 50 MP with aperture f / 1.8. For comparison purposes, the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 + have a 12 MP main lens. We are not sure which sensor it will use, but everything seems to indicate that the South Korean company could use two different sensors, the Samsung GN5 and Sony IMX766. These work with 1.0 µm pixels.

The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 + will use the technology of pixel grouping, which means that at 12.5 MP resolution, each pixel could be 2.0 µm effective in size. Generally speaking, we have an important advance, as we have advanced, even if we only considered this main lens.

As a secondary lens, both terminals could be equipped with a telephoto lens that would certainly be quite a departure from the focus that we have seen in the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 +. This would have a resolution of 10 MP (12 MP in the current generation), and would go from a digital zoom system “without loss” of image quality to a traditional 3x optical zoom model, with f / 2.4 aperture and 1.0 µm pixels. It goes without saying that, although a priori it seems the opposite, this also represents a notable improvement, thanks to this change in favor of optical zoom.

Finally we would have a third lens in the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 + that will work as u12 MP wide angle, with f / 2.2 aperture and 1.4 µm pixels. This camera will be, in essence, the same one that we find in current models, which means that the two most relevant changes in the photographic section of both terminals will be given by the main lens and by the telephoto lens. The front camera will be the same as found in the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 +, that is, a 10 MP unit with f / 2.2 aperture and 1.2 µm pixels.

With the Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung will also improve the photographic section of the current model, and that is, according to the latest leaks, said terminal will be configured with a total of four rear lenses: a main one of 108 MP with aperture f / 1.8 and pixels of 0.8 µm; a 12 MP wide angle with f / 2.2 aperture and 1.4 µm pixels, a 10 MP lens with 10x zoom, f / 4.9 aperture and 1.12 µm pixels, and a 10 MP lens with zoom 3x optical, f / 2.4 aperture and 1.12 µm pixels.
