Aside from a brand new 200MP main sensor, Samsung didn’t improve an entire lot with the Samsung Galaxy S23 Extremely’s cameras, however a brand new leak means that the Samsung Galaxy S24 Extremely may very well be in for some a lot larger photographic enhancements.
In line with leaker @Tech_Reve (opens in new tab), the Samsung Galaxy S24 Extremely can have only one telephoto digicam, instead of the 2 accessible on the present mannequin. That may sound like a downgrade, however apparently the corporate is changing the 3x and 10x lenses with a variable zoom lens that may transfer all the way in which from 3x to 10x.
That presumably means it’s going to additionally be capable of optically zoom to ranges between 3x and 10x, similar to 5x. On the present mannequin, if you wish to zoom to an in-between degree you must make use of digital zoom.
In actual fact, only a few telephones have variable optical zoom. The Sony Xperia 1 IV does, however solely between 3.5x and 5.2x. So, if Samsung can pull this off, its zoom expertise will possible be lightyears forward of the competitors, and we have already spoken about Apple’s have to catch-up on this division.

That stated, whereas the wording of the tweet suggests to us that you simply’ll be capable of optically zoom in any respect ranges between 3x and 10x, it’s potential that they merely imply you’ll be capable of select between 3x and 10x zoom with a single lens. Through which case this won’t be as a lot of an improve.
In any case, that’s not the one enchancment that @Tech_Reve has talked about. In addition they declare that the Samsung Galaxy S24 sequence will unsurprisingly have a brand new chipset – both the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, or the Samsung-made Exynos 2400. Although they recommend that the Snapdragon is more likely (opens in new tab), with the Exynos presumably reserved for the Samsung Galaxy S24 FE.
Much less excitingly, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Extremely will apparently have the same 200MP ISOCELL HP2 main sensor (opens in new tab) because the S23 Extremely, whereas equally the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus will supposedly have the identical 50MP ISOCELL GN3 sensor as the present fashions.
New cameras for the Galaxy S25
This intensive Samsung Galaxy S24 leak apparently wasn’t sufficient for @Tech_Reve, as they’ve additionally shared some particulars in regards to the anticipated Samsung Galaxy S25 sequence.
Apparently the 50MP fundamental digicam utilized by the Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus shall be retired, presumably to be replaced by new a Sony sensor (opens in new tab).
In addition they declare that the Samsung Galaxy S25 Extremely will get a brand new 200MP sensor with new expertise, and that – unsurprisingly – the subsequent technology Snapdragon or Exynos chipset shall be used (particularly the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 or the Exynos 2500).
Whereas we’d take all of this with a pinch of salt – particularly the Samsung Galaxy S25 particulars – @Tech_Reve has precisely leaked issues prior to now, and different leakers have beforehand steered there may very well be important modifications to the S24 Extremely’s telephoto digicam.
If these leaks do pan out, then the Samsung Galaxy S24 Extremely is certain to rank among the many greatest digicam telephones, in addition to one of the best telephones total. Although this leak doesn’t level to any overly thrilling modifications for the usual Galaxy S24 and the S24 Plus.
