Tech gaints, Samsung has released the camera modules for the Samsung Galaxy S22 series, with the rumored specs being refined over time.
Although most of the attention was on the S22 Ultra setup, the cameras for both devices will use the same hardware.
Starting with the 50 MP sensor in the main camera, a 1/1.57” sensor with 1.0 µm pixels and an f/1.8 aperture.
This sounds like the Samsung GN5 and Sony IMX766 sensors (Samsung likes to dual source the camera sensors).
For comparison, the main 12MP camera on the S21 and S21+ has a 1/1.76” sensor with 1.8µm pixels.
Also, the S22 series will use pixel binning, so at 12.5MP resolution the effective pixel size will be 2.0 µm.
The telephoto camera will switch from the current lossless digital zoom approach to a more traditional optical zoom with 3x magnification (f/2.4 aperture).
This will be a 10MP sensor with a 1/3.94” optical format and 1.0µm pixels.The Samsung Galaxy S22 will have a 6.06” display, the S22+ display will measure 6.55.
