In the coming months, Apple and Samsung will be the center focus of smartphone news; Apple for their upcoming iPhone 16 series, and Samsung for their S25 series. Today’s news focuses on rumors surrounding the camera specs of the upcoming S25 series.

If you are a camera enthusiasts looking out for groundbreaking changes in the camera setup of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S25 series, well, you may need to brace up to be disappointed, at least based on initial leaks. Here’s a breakdown of the current rumor updates:

Standard S25 Cameras Might Remain Stagnant

Leaks suggest the base Galaxy S25 could retain the same 50-megapixel main sensor and 12-megapixel front camera used in previous models. Details on telephoto and wide-angle lenses are still unclear. This lack of significant upgrades in the core camera setup might be a cause for concern for some users.

However, looking at the AI imaging prowess of the S24 series, and the increase development in computational photography, we may still see notable improvement in photo quality even without changes to the hardware lenses.

Potential Tweaks for S25 Ultra Camera System

The higher-end S25 Ultra might see some camera adjustments. Rumors suggest the wide-angle camera could receive a megapixel boost, going from 12 megapixels to 50 megapixels. However, the sensor size might be smaller, potentially negating some of the benefits of the higher resolution.

A more promising upgrade is hinted for the 3x telephoto lens. It could be swapped for a 50-megapixel sensor with a larger size, potentially leading to improved image quality when zooming between 3x and 5x.

The 5x zoom lens and the 200-megapixel main camera are rumored to remain unchanged. This suggests Samsung might still be trailing some competitors in terms of cutting-edge camera features.

Nonetheless, the potential impact and improvement to AI capabilities and computation photography could still lead to notably better and improved overall image qualities where the lenses remains unchanged from previous models.

With the Galaxy S25 series expected for a winter release, there’s still ample time for further information to emerge. So we should still be able to lay our hands on more reliable camera specs before the official announcement later this September.
