The Galaxy S22 series will not have an under-display camera, which we already know is coming. Samsung has already introduced its first phone with a UDC, although it only shoots at a resolution of 4 MP and is primarily intended for video conversations. You may utilize the Z Fold3’s 10 MP camera on the cover display to take a selfie if you really want to (or open the phone and use the main cameras).
According to rumors, the Galaxy S22 and S22+ will have a 50 MP primary sensor, a 12 MP tele camera with actual 3x optical magnification (perhaps with changeable focal length), and a 12 MP ultra wide module on the back. Many people will be happy with the camera modifications if the selfie camera is the same punch-holed 10 MP unit.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a similar layout as the Galaxy S20, but with superior tele cameras. Both will have continuous zoom capabilities, with the first starting at 3x and the second at 10x, as well as larger sensors with 12 MP resolution. There may be a few modifications to the primary and ultra wide cameras, but that’s it. The front-facing 40-megapixel camera is the same.
If you read our review of the Z Fold3, you’ll notice that the 4 MP under-display camera doesn’t create photographs that are befitting of a flagship device (but the Fold has better ways to snap a selfie). As a result, Samsung will stay with the tried-and-true punch hole cameras for the Galaxy S series in 2022.
