But it is no longer necessary to sell the equipment released the previous year on the second-hand market to reach the new flagship, the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The company offers up to 45% off for the most advanced equipment. While, regardless of the condition of the cell, it guarantees a floor of 85 thousand pesos.

If the mobile phone you deliver is more than 8 years old, you can add a second phone or tablet to reduce margins. There is also 12 installments without interest available, in extension up to 18 for Santander bank customers.

Galaxy S23 Ultra: super 200MP camera

“The three big innovations compared to the previous version are: the possibilities offered by the new camera sensor, the changes in its structure and the advantages offered by the new microprocessor that has been specially made for this line”, says Mariano Dascanio, Head of Product Management and BI by Samsung.

The most noticeable change is the debut of the 200MP Adaptive Pixel sensor which uses pixel binning to support multiple layers of high-resolution processing.

The sensor making its debut in the S23 Ultra is the ISOCELL HP2, which achieves 200 million pixels of 0.6 micrometres (μm) in a 1/1.3″ optical format. The first version of the sensor, the ISOCELL HP1, was used by Motorola in its Edge 30 Ultra and Xiaomi 12T.

“This sensor is the evolution of the one already on the market. The advantage it offers is that the pixels are smaller, which allows you to capture more detail in low light conditions. Where before the shot was blurry, now it is perceived with all the original colors”, explains Dascanio.

The system activates automatically when it detects low light conditions. In these circumstances, what it does is pack 4 pixels into 1, resulting in a 50MP photo. If the light is even lower and Night Mode is turned on, it merges 16 pixels into 1, into a 12MP photo.

ISOCELL HP2 features a Super QPD autofocus solution, which means it prepares its 200 million pixels for focusing agents. Again, they are grouped into four adjacent pixels to recognize horizontal and vertical pattern changes, providing faster and more accurate autofocus.

8K video upscaled to 30 frames per second is stable and wider, thanks to the optical image stabilizer (OIS) doubled angles in all directions.

hard to break

While they have the same chance of breaking as cheaper ones, high-end smartphones offer extra treatment and layers compared to protect from drops and scratches.

Without going any further, the S23 Ultra is mounted on a metal frame and is encased in aircraft-grade aluminum armor. Both on the back and on the front it is covered with Gorilla Glass Victus 2, which increases resistance in falls on hard and rough floors such as asphalt.

Today’s mobile devices are 10% bulkier and 15% heavier than they were four years ago, increasing both the stress on the glass cover and the likelihood of damage.

“The S23 Ultra is the first phone to feature Victus 2, the tempered glass designed for heavier, harder hitting devices. This protection also extends to the camera modules,” says Dascanio.

The role of the microprocessor

Under the name of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy. The chip is a customized version of the 8 Gen 2 announced last year. As for the differences, according to the data provided by Samsung, it has 33% more CPU, 45% more GPU and 48% more NPU.

Beyond the technical realm, users will perceive a significant change in their daily activities. But undoubtedly, what will get the most out of this SoC are the cameras, which reach a much smoother communication.

“The processor performs a speed upgrade, which allows all rendering processes to be faster and take less time to view the final shot. It also increases the NPU, which is artificial intelligence,” describes Dascanio.

In this way, object-based AI analyzes every detail of the shot, including the smallest facial features, such as hair and eyes, to closely reflect the dynamic characteristics of a person.
