While the Galaxy S22 and the Galaxy S22+ are just like any other S series smartphone, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is unlike any. Most of the rumours about the Galaxy S22 Ultra turned out to be accurate, like the support for SPen and Galaxy Note series-like design. However, the rumour about the 200MP camera sensor turned out to be false. The 200MP sensor is now rumoured for the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Specifications:
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is rumoured to have a 200MP camera sensor. Samsung is finally getting rid of the 108MP camera sensor and is said to stick with the 200MP camera sensor for many years and optimize it well for better camera performance. This means that we will see the same 200MP camera sensor in the Galaxy S24 and S25 Ultra.
The Ultra phone will likely come with the 200MP Samsung ISOCELL HP2 sensor. Right now, Samsung is the only company to produce a 200MP sensor.
This sensor will unlock several camera capabilities for Samsung. We might also get better low-light photography and 8K at 30FPS. The Ultra phone will also have 2 telephoto cameras for 100x zoom and portrait photography. These are not the official specs of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. These are just leaks and rumours. So take this with a pinch of salt.
Samsung is said to do the unexpected with the chipset for its Galaxy S23 series. As per the leaks, Samsung is partnering with MediaTek to power its latest Galaxy S23 series. MediaTek is currently leading in market share after Qualcomm and may beat Qualcomm soon. MediaTek’s chips are getting better and better with time. The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 beats both the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200 in all aspects. This could be the reason Samsung is collaborating with MediaTek.
This means that Samsung will no longer provide phones with Snapdragon processors in their S series smartphones. This could also mean an end to Exynos. The Exynos 2200 on the Galaxy S22 series has frustrated a lot of European users. Samsung could also partner with MediaTek to produce their next-generation Exynos chip. This will mean a huge jump in performance for the Exynos chipset.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Release Date:
- As per PhoneArena’s speculation, Samsung may release the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra on February 24, 2023, alongside the Galaxy S23, the Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy Tab S9 series.
There is no official information regarding the release date of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra as of yet. The release date is very far. Samsung usually follows a similar pattern when it comes to the release date of its flagship S series of smartphones. So we can expect the Galaxy S23 Ultra to launch during the Unpacked event held in February 2023.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Price in US, UK & Canada:
- Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected to be priced at $1299 in the US. In the UK, the Galaxy S23 Ultra could be priced at £1199. In Canada, the phone could be priced at CAD 1699.
