Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked launch is less than 10 days away, so you can expect plenty more product information to leak, especially those details surrounding the top model Galaxy S23 Ultra. Previously, we reported on the impressive zoom capabilities of the 200MP main sensor, with its 12x zoom sample capable of maintaining a huge amount of detail. Now, we’re going to show you the low-light images from this phone, and it’s safe to say that Samsung is finally serious about matching or even beating the competition.
We’ve got a total of six camera samples from Edwards Urbina, who reportedly got his hands on the Galaxy S23 Ultra before Samsung officially announced it. the flagship may be running on pre-release software, so it’s important to note that commercial units for customers may capture and process images in a different way.
In any case, Edwards Urbina’s sample in this tweet first includes an image that appears to have been taken with the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s night shot feature disabled, while the image used for comparison has the night shot feature enabled, and a clear difference can be seen. The Galaxy S23 Ultra is able to take decent images even with Night Shot disabled, let alone with Night View on.
However, there are still a number of factors to consider regarding these samples before getting excited about the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Firstly these images have not been compared to the competition, specifically the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, so no direct opinion can be formed. Secondly, it is unclear how long it will take to process the night shots, as the computing technology requires the user to remain extremely still or the final result will be very blurry.
We don’t know how long users will have to wait for the processed image, and if they have to wait an excruciatingly long period, then the whole purpose of having the night shot feature is defeated. Other than that, as a first impression, it’s not hard to see a clear improvement in image quality.
