Starting this year, Samsung introduced its new Galaxy S21 flagship series, which includes the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra. Like the previous year, the top tier of this lineup, the Galaxy S21 Ultra features the most powerful camera capabilities such as a 108MP main camera, two telephoto sensors, and an ultrawide angle camera.
As the Galaxy S series is Samsung’s camera focussed smartphone segment, the next year’s flagships will surely come with more improved and advanced imaging functionalities. It is said that the company will introduce the Galaxy S22 series next year, which will be the successor to the recently launched Galaxy S21 series.
We are far away from the launch of Galaxy S22 phones, but the leaks and rumors have been already surfacing online revealing the expected future technologies that will be implemented in these models. According to the latest, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be equipped with an improved periscope camera with continuous zoom.
Furthermore, the S22 Ultra is expected to use a cropped image from the main camera or use a separate intermediary zoom lens before the periscope camera kicks in. This results in poor image quality at non-native zoom levels. Tipster IceUniverse further revealed that Samsung Electromechanics and Samsung LSI have developed the continuous zoom periscope solution, which could be used in the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
The lenses implemented inside the alleged periscope camera can move freely (from 3x to 10x) to offer perfect optical sharpness and details at all magnification levels, just like the digital and DSLR cameras. It’s noteworthy that the Sony Xperia 1 III also features a similar periscope zoom camera but it has only two magnification levels (3x and 4.4x).
However, smartphone owners are waiting for the under-display camera phone and it looks like Samsung will fulfill their expectations as the Galaxy S22 Ultra could feature an under-display selfie camera. Moreover, it could be powered by the Exynos 2200 chipset with AMD Radeon Mobile GPU.
Last but not least, if Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S22 series/Ultra with mighty camera tech, a flagship processor with AMD GPU, under-display camera, it will become the most powerful mobile phone (s). As of now, we suggest you take this info as a pinch of salt, and we’ll keep you posted on every development of this story.

Samsung Gears Up for Early Release of Galaxy S24 Series to Challenge Apple’s iPhone 15
According to Korean media, Samsung’s Galaxy S24 series will be released early next year. The company will be starting to produce parts in the middle of next month, with the official launch taking place in January.
The report suggests that the early launch of the Galaxy S24 series is in response to Apple’s iPhone 15 series, which continues to see strong demand despite market concerns internationally.
Galaxy S23 Ultra GPU is better than iPhone 15 Pro Max
Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro series is the first to debut 3nm smartphone chipset. Meanwhile, Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Ultra, equipped with a 4nm-based Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chip has a better GPU compared to Apple’s new iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Galaxy S23 Ultra performs much better than iPhone 15 Pro Max in the 3DMark Wildlife Extreme test. The former starts at 3,886 points in the first run and drops to 2,794 points in the 20th run. Meanwhile, iPhone 15 Pro Max starts at 3,608 points in the first run and drops to 2,843 points in just the 2nd run.
The image shows that the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s GPU performance dropped by 22% after just one run of the test. On the flip side, the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s GPU performance dropped by 28% after 20 runs of the graphics test. This gradual decline ensures users won’t notice a sudden drop in performance during gaming.
Samsung will release the Galaxy S24 series next year, which will use Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy processor. It’s reported that select countries will get Exynos 2400 in their S24 and S24 Plus, while the S24 Ultra will solely use Snapdragon processor.
Be Gentle: Apple’s Titanium iPhone 15 Pro Max cracks within 5 seconds
Famous YouTuber, JerryRigEverything, posted his new durability test video on Apple’s latest iPhone. Despite titanium build and durability claims by Apple, the iPhone 15 Pro Max back glass immediately cracked in less than 5 seconds with minimal pressure applied.
The iPhone 6 Plus was the last Apple iPhone, which failed the durability test. The latest durability test video raises concerns that something is wrong with Apple’s latest iPhone 15 Pro Max as its back glass cracked within 5 seconds, even with the least force applied.
This year, Apple used the Aerospace-grade Titanium for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Meanwhile, JerryRigEverything’s iPhone 15 Pro Max durability test video reveals that it’s not as durable as the marketing would lead buyers to believe.
