Following the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung’s new flagship Galaxy S23 Ultra has just been officially announced, bringing many outstanding improvements in camera and performance.
Opening the event, a representative of Samsung thanked and shared about what Samsung is aiming for, what it has achieved in the past time. The Galaxy S series over the past decade has redefined smartphones, breaking the boundaries of old technology. This year’s S series will continue that “power” with a professional camera set, delivering great photos in all lighting conditions with powerful, energy-saving performance.
Design with subtle changes, more use of recycled materials and software upgrades help Galaxy S23 Ultra stand out from the old version. But, the biggest upgrade is in the main camera with a completely new sensor, exclusively for this super product.

Galaxy S22 Ultra has 2 times better vibration resistance than before.
This year’s Galaxy S23 Ultra has added Super HDR technology to record videos with a wider color range, more accurate colors.
Video has 12-bit dynamic range by combining information at both low and high ISOs, up 1.5x from before. This mode supports resolutions up to 4K60fps in both front and rear cameras.
This is thanks to the new sensor on the S23 series with a faster processing speed, even supporting 8K30fps resolution with a wider angle of view.
The sensor has also been upgraded to capture 2.5 times better light than before.
Next, Samsung took a closer look at the 200MP sensor of the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
After 3 years of stopping at 108MP, Samsung this year has really “played big” by upgrading the number of dots to 200MP – a superior number compared to the rest of the smartphone world.
This sensor can change the way pixels themselves behave with a new adaptive technology called Adaptive Pixel Sensor. When the light is low, the machine automatically merges 16 pixels into 1 to increase the ability to capture light to make the image brighter, more accurate color and the output resolution is 12MP.
Under normal conditions, only 4 pixels are combined to create a 50MP image for greater detail. All 200 million pixels are also utilized for more precise focusing in all lighting conditions.
Even the front-facing selfie camera delivers outstandingly high quality in low-light conditions.

This year’s Nightography is taken to a new level by the S23 Ultra with a powerfully upgraded night video recording capability to improve noise, open shadows, chromatic aberrations and blurring.
Optical stabilization technology combines with the new Adaptive VDIS to double vibration resistance by analyzing and subdividing movements, recognizing ambient light conditions. Samsung continues to use AI to enhance video quality.
Nightography in photography features a new ISP with built-in AI to enhance details and improve colors. In particular, this year’s night portrait mode will be even better with the ability to create AI depth maps, recognizing each individual object in the frame.
This year’s front camera is reduced to 12MP resolution but with larger pixel size, better light capture and the ability to identify objects, hair and clothes using AI. This camera is still capable of Dual Pixel focus and also allows to adjust the color tone of selfies easily.
Next is the camera introduction of Galaxy S22 and S22+. The main sensor of the two devices still retains a resolution of 50MP. However, new features are brought to this pair.
