The new rumours suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra might ditch the dual zoom sensor system that was introduced with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. In its current iteration, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra uses a 10MP telephoto camera with 10x zoom and a 10MP secondary telephoto camera with 3x zoom. If the new rumours are true, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra might take a new 5x telephoto sensor with variable zoom capabilities, thereby moving towards a triple camera system. 

However, this school of thought belongs to mobile photography enthusiasts. Some other reports suggest that Samsung will continue the current format for the camera system.
