Samsung’s S24 Ultra camera specifications may disappoint some fans. As a result of expectations of enhanced features, Samsung is set to retain the 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP2 sensor that was introduced in the S23 Ultra earlier this year. In spite of its high resolution, this sensor lacks superiority in sensor size, which can result in occasional issues such as heightened noise in darker portions of images. There are no plans for a larger sensor in the next two years, despite hopes for a larger sensor.

In a tweet by famous tipster Ice Universe (now deleted), both the S24 Ultra and the S25 Ultra are expected to feature a 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP2 sensor. Furthermore, contrary to previous rumors, it appears that the 3x telephoto camera on the S24 Ultra will remain unchanged. It may be comforting for photography enthusiasts to hear that an upgrade to a 10x telephoto camera is possible.

GalaxyClub reports that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S24 lineup will not receive any hardware upgrades for their selfie cameras either. It is expected that they will retain the 12MP front-facing camera from the previous S23 models.

Samsung’s decision to keep the same camera sensor for three years aligns with the precedent set with the S20 Ultra, S21 Ultra, and S22 Ultra models, all of which feature the 108-megapixel sensor. Samsung’s consistency might put it at a disadvantage, especially when compared to competitors.

It is rumored that the Samsung Galaxy Ultra will boast a 144Hz refresh rate despite potential camera shortcomings. In addition, electric vehicle-inspired battery technology is also reportedly in development.
