Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max fingerprint sensor is not used in the upcoming Samsung flagship smartphones. It appears that Samsung is skipping the world’s largest ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor and continuing to use the 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2 in the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra.

A recent core specs leak revealed the camera sensors, processor and fingerprint sensor details of the Galaxy S23. The data indicates that the Galaxy S23 smartphone still uses Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2. Notably, this sensor is used by Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S21 series as well.

Several vendors already debuted the 3D Sonic Max fingerprint sensor with their smartphones such as iQOO and Vivo in early 2022 itself. However, there’s no information why Samsung is still not opting for the largest sensor in its topmost flagship line.

Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2

Back in January 2021, Qualcomm introduced the 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2, which is 50% faster and 77% larger than Gen 1 [Gen 1 was 4x9mm (surface area 36mm2), whereas Gen 2 expands 8×8 (64mm2)]. Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor is also ultra-thin, measuring a scant .2mm.

The first-gen 3D Sonic Sensor was featured in several Samsung flagships including the Galaxy S10, Note 10, S20, and Note 20 series. And the 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2 debuted with Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S22 series, with the next addition being the Galaxy S23 series.

Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max

Qualcomm’s latest 3D Sonic Max fingerprint sensor transmits an ultrasonic pulse against the fingers by using sound waves to read two fingers simultaneously for more reliability. Besides, it delivers high performance across a wide range of operating conditions—dry, wet, and even contaminant exposure. Read more

Samsung has installed Vapor Chamber Cooling on the Galaxy S23, Galalxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphones. This cooling system is improved over 2 times compared to the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra models.

Below you can images that clearly show that the new phones have a bigger cooling system area compared to the S22 models:

To keep your device cool and safe, the vapor chamber absorbs heat from the chipset and transfers it to cooler parts. At the same time, some of the heat is radiated to the other layers as well, and each layer further disperses the heat over its entire surface.

In this way, your Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphone will offer you a heatless performance even after continuously using the device for hours.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra taking long time in 200MP camera mode [Video]

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra

Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Ultra brings a serious camera upgrade over its predecessor. Replacing the 108MP primary sensor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra features a 200MP ISOCELL HP2 image sensor with next-gen technologies such as tetra2pixel for enhanced photography.

Yesterday, the company officially introduced the Galaxy S23 series, and the devices are now available for reviewers and authorized retailers. In a recent development, the YouTube channel Tip3X posted a video showcasing the Galaxy S23 Ultra camera test in 200MP resolution.

As you can see in the test video below, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is taking a long time in capturing the shot in 200MP mode. Not that all, when previewed, the image continues to process and takes a long delay to finalize the shot to be viewed by the user.

ISP update should bring improvements

Samsung’s new Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts a new 200MP Adaptive Pixel sensor that captures epic moments with incredible precision. The HP2 camera sensor uses pixel binning to support multiple levels of high-resolution processing at once.

200MP camera shot reportedly occupies 30MB-35MB storage space, which could also be a factor behind delayed processing. Still, the Galaxy S23 Ultra uses Samsung’s own-developed 200MP ISOCELL HP2 camera, which is refined well with the software system.

Reliable tipster earlier revealed that Samsung will release a major firmware update for the Galaxy S23 Ultra as part of improving the ISP function. Since the update would be focussing on the image signal processor, we expect, the camera performance and shutter delay should be normalized.
