The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is here and we had the chance to spend some quality time with it. We used that to, among other things, take a few camera samples with the new AI-powered ‘Quad Tele’ camera system, as Samsung calls it.
A word before we get to the photos – these shots are more of an impromptu look rather than a dedicated test. And we’ll reserve our critical judgment for the review, when we’ll have shots produced in controlled environment.
Samsung moved from the 3x + 10x setup on the Galaxy S22 Ultra and S23 Ultra to a 3x + 5x setup on the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The new 5x camera has a much bigger 1/2.6-inch sensor that Samsung says will be able to capture just as good 10x photos as the dedicated zoom unit it replaces.
The 50MP 5x telephoto has a 2x wider OIS angle and 1.6x larger pixels than the 10MP 10X telephoto, and it’s backed by the considerable AI-prowess of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. It brings the ProVision Engine, which ensures better noise performance, as well as superior image characteristics.
Here is a demonstration of the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s range – from 0.6x at the ultrawide end all the way to 100x.
Galaxy S24 Ultra: 0.6x • 1x • 2x • 3x • 5x • 10x • 100x
Here is another scene captured at 1x, 3x, and 5x and 10x from the new zoom camera.
