As for the upcoming launch of the Samsung Galaxy S23 series of phones, it looks like the Ultra model will again come with the biggest upgrades – and those upgrades apparently include ‘night vision’ capabilities in terms of cameras.
This comes via a well-respected leaker ice universe (opens in a new tab), who took to Twitter to “re-emphasize that the S23 Ultra’s night camera is really ‘night vision'”. Sounds like very good low-light photography capabilities to us.
What we don’t get here are indications of exactly what the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra’s camera modules will include, but previous leaks have pointed to a 108MP + 12MP + 12MP + 2MP quad-lens rear camera on this smartphone. particular.
Get the picture
It would appear that Ice Universe had access to an early Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra unit, or may have accessed images captured by it: the same source previously published a photo comparison between the Galaxy S23 Ultra and the Google Pixel 7 Pro.
In the past, we’ve also heard Ice Universe talk about “significantly improved” low-light capture capabilities for photos and video. This is clearly an upgrade that’s going to be noticeable and should make the Ultra one of the best phones on the market for camera quality.
Photos and videos taken in daylight are not left out either, as there are said to be improvements here too. Everything will be revealed during the launch of the Galaxy S23 phones, which is expected to take place in the first days of February.
Analytics: a key flagship feature
There’s no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S23 phones will bring with them a host of improvements over their predecessors – including performance upgrades – otherwise Samsung might as well keep the Galaxy S22 line of handsets on sale.
However, the low-light photography capabilities of the Galaxy S23 phones deserve special attention. Being able to take photos and videos in difficult lighting conditions is one of the main differences between high-end flagship phones and budget devices that will cost you much less.
While the best budget phones generally offer good value for money, decent performance and very respectable camera setups, you’ll often find that it takes photos and videos in the dark where they start to have difficulty. If you need the best night shots, you probably need a flagship smartphone.
This is an area where handsets such as the Google Pixel series excel, including the aforementioned Google Pixel 7 Pro. If the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s night vision capabilities are as good as this, we’re going to be impressed.
