The Samsung Galaxy S22 series smartphone is set to be officially unveiled on February 9, however, its official PPT has unexpectedly leaked ahead of launch, nearly eliminating the mystery around this incoming new device.
The forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 series is expected to include enhanced rear cameras, which output is expected to increase owing to the company’s latest AI techniques.
An apparently official slide has now leaked out that describes how the new setting results in photographs that are more “realistic” than ever before.
The PPT reveals several new features of the S22 Series, including a new “Super Resolution Photo” feature in terms of photography, in addition to the hardware specifications that have been leaked previously.
What is Super Resolution Photo and How it works?
As reported, the upcoming S22 series could use its primary camera’s native 50MP/108MP mode, as well as the synthesis of the 12MP mode combined with the former’s details and the latter’s brightness information.
So that the finished picture has a clearer performance, thanks to the new generation of SOC in the ISP performance.
Whereas the 108MP primary camera has been around since the Galaxy S20 series, it has only previously supported pixel synthesis mode and native mode for independent imaging. This is the first time that two modes from the same main camera have been employed to improve the final photo.
Although the back camera hardware remains mostly the same, the Samsung Galaxy S22 series, with its updated algorithm support, could be well worth anticipating.
Furthermore, it is reported that Samsung has incorporated a new AI resolution feature (Super Resolution Photo) this time, which can reverse AI to increase the clarity of the 108MP mode and combine it with the 12MP mode to boost the model’s brightness performance.
A 12MP sensor, possibly the ultra-wide angle lens found across the entire S22 series, kicks in at the same time to add brightness-related information to the image.
As per the slide, it may be capable of nona-binning for additional light-capture in Super Resolution mode – however only in the Ultra, and the S22 or S22+ possibly dropping to tetra-binning.
This data is then sent into Samsung’s new “Adaptive Pixel” algorithm, which is then processed by an Improved NPU to produce “photos that look like what you see” when shot with a new flagship device.
What’s more known?
Furthermore, Ice Universe, a reputable leaker, claims to have discovered more evidence of the S22 Ultra’s 108MP f/1.8 primary camera being used for such photos.
It is a metadata of the file that might have been shot with this phone, indicating that the 1080MP photo volume of the enhanced mode is larger, it could be from 22.9MB to 32.27MB, and it also requires up to 2 seconds of background processing time while capturing the photos.
