In stark contrast to a recent report claiming that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will “settle” with a more refined version of the current 108MP ISOCELL HM3 sensor, the new one says the phone will actually have a 200MP main camera. IT also points to a release from January 2022.
The report comes from a Korean publication citing various sources in the industry. And according to these sources, Olympus (the Japanese camera manufacturer) has contacted Samsung to seek partnership. Samsung has reportedly accepted the terms, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a 5-lens, 200MP, Olympus-branded camera.
The report also suggests that an S Pen support is in order, but we wonder if it would be included in the package as this is not exactly a new feature. The current Galaxy S21 Ultra also supports the S Pen.
In any case, we keep our ears open because we get conflicting reports and nothing is certain for now. Plus, if anything, the Galaxy S22 is not expected to be announced until next year.
