Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra dual telephoto camera picture quality is not as good as Vivo X90 Pro+
Along with One UI 5.0, Samsung has also started preparing to launch its next Galaxy S series – Galaxy S23. However, this series of devices will unveil in February 2023. Now, new information claims that the Galaxy S22 Ultra‘s 10MP telephoto camera captures low-quality images.
According to a well-known tipster (IceUniverse), the Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphone’s 10MP dual telephoto camera that features 3x and 10x optical zoom has some issues. When clicking photos between 3x to 10x zoom, the quality of the image gets reduced a lot.
Samsung’s 3x+10x solution has a flaw: at the focal length between 3x and 10x, 10MP 3x will inevitably be cropped, and the image quality will be greatly reduced. But for vivo with 64MP 3.5x
The picture quality at this focal length will be much better.Please see the comparison：

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra 10x telephoto camera may not be as good as Vivo, Oppo: Tipster
Samsung’s swiftly working to unveil the Galaxy S23 series early next year. Ahead of launch, we are hearing more and more about the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra flagship, however, a tipster believes that its 10x telephoto camera performance will be defeated by Vivo and Oppo phones.
@UniverseIce predicts that Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Ultra “will rank third” when it comes to 10x telephoto camera performance by March 2023. The source further added that Vivo and Oppo smartphones will grab the first and second place in 10x telephoto.
The existing Android camera beast – Galaxy S22 Ultra will rank fourth in the 10x telephoto camera test, as noted by the tipster. Ice is known as a reliable source for Samsung leaks, and no doubt, he’s a well-knowledged tech enthusiast, however, the real camera performance will be revealed in the wild.
Leaks are just a glimpse of what’s going to happen next, and, surely, we suggest our readers take this information as a pinch of salt. Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone is going to beat all Android rivals with its innovative 200MP camera and well-optimized system.
Ending the statement, the source recommended Samsung find another camera solution for the 2024’s Galaxy S24 flagship. No doubt, the Galaxy S24 line will introduce meaningful changes over its predecessor, but the Galaxy S23 Ultra is still in the works, and camera capability is yet to be tested.
