Apple May Be Worried By Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra’s “Continuous Zoom” Camera

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is a fantastic performer, as many people feel like it achieved the performance people hoped to see on the Galaxy S20 Ultra.

One of the main reasons why the phone was so successful was its so-called “feature-packed camera system” that features terrific core functionality plus 100x periscope zoom.

As a result, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is one of the devices with a truly elite-tier camera layout on the market currently, and it may be one of the best smartphones of all time.

Though some recent leaks suggest that Apple will be featuring a very potent camera layout with the iPhone 13, it appears that Samsung isn’t concerned at all, as Ice Universe, a very popular leaker, suggests that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature a hyper-advanced “Continuous zoom” periscope camera, according to t3.

Ice Universe believes that the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will include a high-spec periscope camera with perpetual zoom.

That will be somewhat different from the periscope zoom lens present on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. It will allow for a more dynamic movement of the lens, in contrast to the fixed, typical lens layout.

The result is that the S22 periscope lens will allow for unrestricted movement from 3x to 10x zoom levels, thus resulting in better optical sharpness and detailing at increased zoom levels, even when compared to Apple’s most advanced camera layout.

That led to a question – Is that a good reason for Apple to be concerned about?

Though the S22 Ultra is set for an early 2022 release, that is a relatively short period in terms of technological progress.

We will have to wait a few more months to see how many highly-placed heads will Samsung’s camera indeed turn around.
