Rumors continue to circulate that the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus will be literally downgraded when it comes out next year, but a new report has suggested the device may compensate for its slightly smaller display with a big camera boost to fight the new iPhone 13 Pro.
According to SlashGear while the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus will stick with a 10MP front hole-punch camera, and the back camera array will be upgraded with a 50MP ISOCEIL GN5 main sensor. The 12MP ultra-wide camera will also be returning, but the telephoto shooter will be upgraded with a 10MP sensor which will allow for 3x optical zoom.
By comparison, the iPhone 13 Pro has a 12MP camera up front and a trio of 12MP cameras in the back. Of course, resolution is only one factor, as the new iPhones deliver stellar image quality and features like Cinematic mode and Photographic styles, but it’s nice to see the S22 getting a bump up.
