We’ve heard a lot of rumors and leaks about the camera setup of the upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra, but we’re seeing something new again. We heard rumors that Samsung would keep the camera hardware of the Galaxy S21 Ultra in the new S22 Ultra, and even seen leaks it could have a massive sensor.
The new leak from Ice Universe (Weibo) says the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s camera will have two new variable focal length zoom lenses. The first lens has a 3x zoom, the second a 10x zoom. These correspond to the zoom capability of the current Galaxy S21 Ultra, although the focal lengths are still unknown at this point in time.

The camera sensors are also getting a small upgrade in the two new telesensors. The S22 Ultra will have two 12 MP sensors with 1.22 µm pixels. The S21 Ultra had two 10 MP sensors and the same pixels that the S22 Ultra is supposed to have. Both new sensors will also have OIS (Optical Image Stabilization).
On the other hand, the main camera sensor in the 108MP sensor should remain the same with 0.8 µm pixels. The hardware will also reportedly have an improved optical image stabilization system, although it is unclear what changes will be made to improve the technology. The ultrawide camera retains the 12 MP sensor and receives OIS as an added bonus.
The camera on the front remains the same even with the 40MP sensor; However, like the Galaxy S21 Ultra, Samsung will likely keep it in the punch-hole design. The company’s first under-display camera device is the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which shows that technology is far from over.
The Galaxy S22 series is expected to be announced sometime in January or February 2022. Rumors and leaks of the upcoming Galaxy S22 series are surfacing more frequently, and we’ll hear more in the coming weeks as we get closer to the announcement.
