We may see the Galaxy S24 sporting familiar main cameras across all of its models, according to leaker Revegnus – dealing a blow to anyone hoping for big upgrades next year.
Revegnus’ first claim (opens in a new tab) is that Samsung will continue to use its own 50MP GN3 sensor for the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus, the same one you currently get on the Galaxy S23 And S23 More models. This is a great sensor that you will also find on the Google Pixel 7 series, but the S24 would be the third generation of Galaxy S to use this camera.
Revegnus also alludes to the rumored disappearance of the Plus model from Samsung’s flagship range (opens in a new tab), leaving only the small base Galaxy S and the larger, fully featured Galaxy S Ultra models. They admit, however, that the sources are conflicting, so perhaps the middle child of the Galaxy S family will stick around for now.
Second big tip from Revegnus (opens in a new tab) is that there will be an HP2 primary camera in the Galaxy S24 Ultra, the same 200MP sensor found in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. That’s less of a surprise, since the 200MP camera was new to the S23 Ultra, and the Galaxy S22 UltraThe 108MP camera from the previous year had been used in two previous Galaxy S Ultra phones before that.
Other upgrades not excluded
Revegnus only talks about the phones’ main cameras in their leaks, which leaves us wondering if Samsung will make any changes to the Galaxy S24 series’ ultra-wide, telephoto, or selfie cameras.
It’s possible that these sensors could still see improvements while the main sensors remain the same, although we need more rumors to back that up.
Plus, there may be more exciting news further down the line. The Galaxy S25 series could get a nice boost in the form of a custom Sony IMX890 50MP sensor, Revenue continues. Having a modified camera chip would be a good companion for the upgraded Snapdragon processors that Samsung started using in the S23 series with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxyand could help keep Samsung’s photography among the best in our best camera phones guide.
We probably won’t see the Galaxy S24 series arrive until January or February next year, judging by Samsung’s previous release models. It will probably be worth the wait if rumors of a powerful new chipset, Improved GPUbigger storage capacity and RAM And 144Hz display are accurate, even without substantial camera upgrades.
