Samsung Galaxy S22 series camera specifications

According to tipster @FrontTron, the Samsung Galaxy S22 and the Galaxy S22+ will have a triple-camera setup, with a 50MP primary camera, a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 12MP telephoto lens with 3X optical zoom. However, the tweet asks fans to take this information with a pinch of salt, for now. Details regarding the camera sensors’ model numbers and whether Samsung is using ISOCELL sensors or Sony’s IMX lens.

In comparison, the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ feature a 12MP primary sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a 64MP telephoto camera with 3X digital zoom. The Samsung Galaxy S22 may offer a larger 1/1.28-inch or 1/1.12-inch and the 50MP sensor should help for brighter and sharper images. Additionally, replacing the Galaxy S21’s 64MP camera with a 12MP proper telephoto lens should offer greater details at native zoom levels.

An earlier leak suggested the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra will sport 6.06-inch, 6.55-inch, and 6.81-inch screens, respectively. While Naver reported the phones would arrive with 6.1-inch, 6.5-inch, and 6.8-inch displays, respectively. While the leak cannot be verified, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ will have slightly smaller display sizes compared to the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus that have 6.2-inch and 6.7-inch. The Galaxy S22 Ultra retains the same 6.8-inch screen size.
