Samsung builds epic Photobooth to show the power of Galaxy S23 Ultra’s camera

Published

Samsung launched its new 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP2 camera sensor, which comes with the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The camera is quite powerful and delivers stunningly detailed photos. To showcase the power of Galaxy S23 Ultra’s camera sensor, Samsung built an epic Photobooth.

To show exactly what this means, Samsung built the least advanced Photobooth in London’s Piccadilly Circus, using the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 200-megapixel camera sensor. To help people to share their epic moments, the company took over the epic billboard in the town.

Instead of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Samsung just used the camera sensor to capture photos of visitors in the Photobooth. When they left the Photobooth, they saw the massive photo of themselves displayed on one of the world’s most iconic billboards.

Further, when photos are zoomed in on a 45-meter by 18-meter billboard, it shows people the epic details of eyes, hair, and skin in 200-megapixel photos. It shows just the camera sensor produces such detailed photos, then how it can perform with a pro-grade processor and intelligent software system.

Galaxy S23 Ultra Camera

Samsung’s latest Galaxy S23 Ultra is the best camera smartphone to date. It brings dual telephoto sensors for stunning zoom capabilities along with a 200-megapixel primary sensor for lossless photography experiences.

The company’s new ISOCELL HP2 camera is way too intelligent as it allows you to take pictures in three different resolutions including 12-megapixel, 50-megapixel, and full 200-megapixel.

200-megapixel camera

A 200-megapixel image sensor can deliver a 12-megapixel photo as a default setting, but it also lets users take absolutely massive 200-megapixel photos of approximately 16,000 pixels by 12,000 pixels.

Since a photo taken in these dimensions is about 16 times bigger than those taken in 12-megapixel, it will have far more details than images taken with other smartphone cameras.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 update September 2023 update US

Samsung might launch Galaxy Z Flip 6 Slim and Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slip GalaxyClub reports. While the company is marching towards its July Unpacked, rumors about new Slim models are surfacing now.

RossYoung hints that Samsung might introduce a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim. It could have a larger display than the regular phone and lack S Pen support. This variant could hit the market later this year in the fourth quarter.

The Z Fold 6 Slim is model-numbered Q6 Slim, while there’s also a B6 Slim. B6 is the model number of the upcoming Z Flip 6, with Slim also expected. These rumors point out that the affordable foldables might be Slim.

At present, we don’t have any idea of the specifications of the Slim foldables. Earlier, it was reported that Samsung was heavily shocked by the reduced thickness of foldable phones released by Chinese vendors specifically Huawei.

It looks like the Korean tech giant has decided to trim some key specs in order to make foldables thinner. Those who want pro-grade specs would have option to go for strategic models, while Slim variants would extend the choice.

Samsung struggles in Nvidia HBM test: Reuters

Samsung HBM3E Nvidia approval

Samsung is facing difficulties in passing the Nvidia HBM test Reuters reports. The report says that Samsung has not yet passed Nvidia’s tests for high-bandwidth memory. Issues with heat and power consumption are reportedly the major reasons.

Since last year, Samsung has been facing issues passing Nvidia HBM tests for HBM3 and HBM3E. Meanwhile, the South Korean tech giant responded (via Reuters), “The testing is still ongoing, and final results have not been determined.”

Last month, Nvidia failed Samsung’s 8-stack and 12-stack HBM3E chips. However, the testing is still running and the company may get more chances to get its chips passed. In case the company fails to pass the HBM test, it will lag behind its competitor SK Hynix.

HBM is a key player in the booming popularity of artificial intelligence. This semiconductor stacks DRAM layers to dramatically increase data capacity and processing speed. Currently, SK Hynix and Samsung Electronics have been sharing the market.

Analysts also say that SK Hynix, which developed the first HBM chip in 2013, has spent far more time and resources on HBM research and development than Samsung over the past decade, accounting for its technological edge.

iFixit ends Samsung collab, Repair Hub to shut next month

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Flip 5 iFixit self-repair

iFixit made a surprising announcement, breaking its repair ties with Samsung next month. The company says that a number of reasons are behind the termination of this collaboration. Two years after servicing Galaxies, iFixit will stop selling original spare parts next month.

Samsung allegedly creates problems for independent repair services. Consumers purchasing original spare parts from Samsung are required to submit their name, contact details, home address, IMEI number, and defect details for every repair carried out.

“It’s with a heavy wrench that we have decided to end our partnership with Samsung. Despite a huge amount of effort, Samsung’s approach to repairability does not align with our mission,” iFixit reports.

The Galaxy maker also requires repair service providers to purchase spare parts in large quantities. Service providers stay away from hefty purchases as Galaxy phones are often designed in such a way that spare parts have to be sold as a glued unit with several components.

Changes taking place starting June 1st, 2024:

  • Starting June 2024, iFixit will no longer be Samsung’s designated third-party parts and tools distributor.
  • iFixit will no longer have a quantity limit of seven Samsung parts per repair shop per quarter.
  • No existing information will be removed from iFixit, but it will not collaborate directly with Samsung to develop new manuals.
  • iFixit will continue to sell parts and repair fix kits for Samsung devices, sourcing OEM parts when available and clearly indicating whether parts are original or aftermarket.
