In stark contrast with a recent report claiming that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will “settle” for a more refined version of the current 108MP ISOCELL HM3 sensor, the new one says that the phone will indeed feature a 200MP main camera. IT also points at a January 2022 release.
The report comes from a Korean publication citing various industry sources. And according to those sources, Olympus (the Japanese camera maker) has contacted Samsung to seek partnership. Reportedly, Samsung has agreed to the terms and the Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature 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 come bundled in the package since this isn’t exactly a new feature. The current Galaxy S21 Ultra supports S Pen too.
In any case, we’ll keep our ears open because we are getting conflicting reports and nothing is certain for now. Plus, if anything, the Galaxy S22 is not expected to be announced before next year.
