Galaxy S23 Plus renders reveal redesign.

Samsung confirmed this week that we’re less than a month away from the unveiling of the Galaxy S23 series. As usual, leaks have ruined most of the surprises, but even at this late stage, major details continue to trickle out. To that point, SamMobile on Tuesday shared a few interesting tidbits about new camera features that will debut on the Galaxy S23 next month.

According to SamMobile, the biggest camera improvements will be exclusive to the Galaxy S23 Ultra. For example, their sources claim that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will be able to shoot hyperlapse videos of the sky. It’s unclear how this will differ from the Hyperlapse camera mode that is already present on some Galaxy smartphones, but the mode might be getting an upgrade.

Samsung also might add its astrophotography features to the default camera app, but if not, they should still be available through the Expert RAW app.

The company has heard the pleas of users who want more control over their shooting parameters while taking pictures as well. The report suggests that a Pro mode is coming to the selfie cameras of the Galaxy S23 models, joining the Pro mode for the rear cameras.

Finally, the report claims that Galaxy S23 users will be able to save RAW copies of photos in 50-megapixel resolution. Currently, Galaxy phones can only save RAW copies of photos shot in Pro mode in the default camera resolution, which is typically 12 megapixels, instead of the resolution of the camera sensor. This feature should be present on all three models.

In case you missed it, promotional videos for the camera on the Galaxy S23 leaked on Tuesday as well. You can watch them courtesy of Twitter leaker Ice Universe below:

In addition to announcing that the next Galaxy Unpacked will take place on Wednesday, February 1, at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET, Samsung also opened reservations for the new phone on the company’s website. They are open until February 1st, so act fast if you want to reserve.

      Samsung formally announced its new 3nm chip technology a few weeks ago. But the Korean giant will reportedly showcase the world’s first such processor next week. Samsung unveiled the 3nm chip’s new Gate-All-Around (GAA) transistor architecture, which is supposed to be significantly more efficient and faster than current 5nm chips.
      While Samsung has started mass-production on the new 3nm chips that will hopefully power flagship phones like the Galaxy S one day, it’s unclear what these devices might be. It’s also not clear if Samsung has a chance to actually steal any business from TSMC. The Taiwanese foundry builds the most important mobile processors in the world right now.
      Samsung’s new 3nm chips look good on paper
      Samsung said in its original announcement that the new 3nm GAA chips will offer plenty of reasons to upgrade from the current 5nm tech. The GAA tech will bring substantial efficiency gains that should improve battery life. That’s on top of significant performance improvements and size reduction:
      But the specs alone aren’t enough to guarantee the success of Samsung’s semiconductor business in winning 3nm chip orders from major companies.
      TSMC continues to be the main Samsung rival. Among others, TSMC manufactures all the A-series and M-Series chips that Apple uses in iPhones, iPads, and Macs.
      Even the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chips that will power many Android flagships in the second half of 2022 are coming from TSMC plants.

      Samsung also mass-produced the original Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor before Qualcomm moved to TSMC.
      When will Samsung use 3nm chips in its Galaxy S smartphones?
      Samsung vowed to create a new flagship chip for future flagship phones after the Galaxy S22 throttling disaster. The company didn’t offer specifics, and it’s unclear whether the chip will be based on the new 3nm GAA technology.
      A report from Korea indicates that Samsung has scheduled a launch ceremony for the 3nm chips for July 25th. But the first company to purchase the new Samsung chip will be a Chinese cryptocurrency mining company. That’s not the kind of customer that will help Samsung steal business from TSMC.
      Moreover, reports say that Samsung is still struggling to increase the yield of its 3nm chips to make them profitable. And Samsung is far from ramping up production of the new processors.
      Meanwhile, TSMC will start manufacturing 3nm FinFET chips this month. GAA chips will follow in 2025.
