Samsung shows off the capabilities of the Galaxy S24 Ultra camera in a unique way. The latest flagship cellphone from Samsung was flown into the stratosphere to take photos from extreme heights.

Techviral reports Samsung installed four Galaxy S24 Ultras into specially designed carbon fiber cages, which were then placed in four different helium-powered balloons.

These balloons were flown from the Grand Canyon, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains to capture the diverse landscape of the west coast of the United States.

The balloons carried the Galaxy S24 Ultra to a height of 120,000 feet or around 36 km. Technically, the Galaxy S24 Ultra does not reach outer space, the limit of which is 100 km, but the distance reached is quite high because you can already see the curvature or curvature of the Earth.

The hydrogen that powered the balloons gradually ran out, and after a few days the four Galaxy S24 Ultra slowly descended to Earth with the help of a parachute, as quoted from Android Authority, Thursday (7/3/2024).

Currently, The Samsung Galaxy S24 Cellphone Camera Is The Best

During several days in the stratosphere, the Galaxy S24 Ultra took more than 150 photos using the ultrawide camera and main camera at 1x, 3x and 5x zoom. The resulting photos can be seen below:

The Galaxy S24 Ultra camera managed to clearly capture the darkness of outer space and the curvature of the Earth. This cellphone can also take photos of various geographic features on the Earth’s surface, such as rivers, canyons and snow-covered mountains.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is the most expensive and most sophisticated cellphone in the latest Galaxy S line. This cellphone is equipped with a 200 MP main camera and optical zoom of up to 5x.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra also supports Space Zoom 100x which has been part of the Galaxy S line since it was first introduced on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. If this feature is usually used to photograph the Moon, this time the Galaxy S24 Ultra was used to photograph the Earth from a height.
