Samsung has uploaded a video that appears to demonstrate the astrophotography capabilities of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which is due to be presented on February 1.
While Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra It won’t be officially introduced until next week, during the event Galaxy Unpacked Feb 1Samsung has started promoting its three upcoming smartphones.
In a video posted this Sunday on its YouTube channel, the Korean manufacturer appears to be showing off the night photo capabilities, and a long focal length for its optical zoom, of the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Thus, the video makes it possible to see what appears to be a video of the moon rotating in on itself. It was accompanied by a textMoon(which can be translated as “Moon) where each “Ohrepresented by a different camera. If Samsung determines that the image isSimulated for illustration purposesHowever, the message is clear: With the new Galaxy S23 set, you should be able to photograph the moon with ease.
Shots are particularly difficult to achieve
However, this type of capture is particularly difficult on smartphones, for several reasons. First, to take advantage of a close-up of the moon, the camera must take advantage of camera lens At a very long focal length, between 300 and 500 mm. However, on a classic smartphone with x2 or x3 zoom, the focal length obtained is only 50 or 75 mm. It’s so small that you don’t have a close-up of the moon on the photo.
Another concern this type of footage poses is dynamic range. You need a camera capable of capturing the details of a star’s surface, and therefore an overexposed image with sufficient definition.
It is precisely on these two elements that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected. According to recent leaksNot only will the smartphone benefit from a image sensor 200 MP main unit, capable of assisting a hybrid telephoto long focal length device thanks to its high definition, but also a unit with a 10 MP sensor and above all a 230 mm equivalent telephoto lens. Enough to allow x10 optical zoom and x100 hybrid zoom, ideal for taking pictures of the moon.

Remember, the Galaxy S22 Ultra was already particularly effective in this very difficult exercise, even if the images were still a bit blurry. A problem that could be rectified thanks to the better defined 200MP sensor on the S23 Ultra.
