Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Camera

TechInsights has presented its initial teardown results of the Samsung S23 Ultra, specifically focusing on the camera modules and optical sensors inside the phone. The smartphone features a quad-camera cluster on the back (200 MP main/wide, 10 MP periscope, 10 MP telephoto, and 12 MP ultrawide) and a 12 MP CMOS image sensor for the front (selfie) camera. The blog post provides images of the teardown and X-rays of the main (wide) camera module, indicating aperture stops and four ball bearings used to guide the lens barrel.

Lab work is still ongoing to confirm the details of the image sensors and camera sensors found inside the phone.
