Samsung will only launch the Galaxy S24 series in early 2024. However, leaked specifications for the Galaxy S Ultra for the next few years have begun to be revealed.

This leak comes from tipster Tech_Reve in his post on Twitter/X. He shared a leak of the camera roadmap for the Galaxy S Ultra, up to the Galaxy S26 Ultra which will be released in 2026.

Starting from the Galaxy S24 Ultra which will be released next year, Tech_Reve said this cellphone will use a 50 MP periscope telephoto camera with a 0.7µm pixel size. For comparison, the Galaxy S23 Ultra currently has a 10 MP telephoto camera with 1.12µm.

Tech_Reve does not reveal the zoom capabilities of this telephoto lens. Leaks about the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s periscope camera are quite confusing, some claim the optical zoom capability is up to 3x and some claim up to 5x.

Switch to the Galaxy S25 Ultra which will be released in two years. Tech_Reve claims this cellphone will get the biggest camera upgrade. The main camera will use a new lens and the ultrawide camera will be increased to 50 MP (up from 12 MP on the Galaxy S23 and S24 Ultra).

In addition, the periscope telephoto camera on the Galaxy S25 Ultra is predicted to support variable zoom. This feature will be a significant upgrade as it will allow the phone to take high-quality photos at various zoom levels.

Samsung will not be the first cellphone vendor to offer this feature on conventional cellphones. This feature has been present on Sony Xperia phones for several generations, with zoom capabilities from 3.5x to 5.2x, as quoted from Android Authority, Tuesday (19/12/2023).

Finally, Tech_Reve claims the Galaxy S26 Ultra will get an upgrade to a 200 MP camera. This main camera is said to use a 1/1.1 inch sensor with 0.7µm.

For comparison, the Galaxy S23 Ultra uses a 200 MP main camera with a sensor measuring 1/1.3 inch and 0.6 µm pixels. This upgrade should improve the camera’s ability to collect light and the quality of the images taken.

Of course, these are all still early leaks, especially for the Galaxy S25 Ultra and Galaxy S26 Ultra. These two phones won’t be launched in a few years and the leaked specifications could change.
