Back when it revealed the Galaxy S20 Ultra and its 10x periscope zoom lens that gave it the ability to do 100x hybrid optical and digital magnification, Samsung called the feature Space Zoom, for the ability to take decent snapshots of the moon even.
The “10x Hybrid Optical Zoom is enabled by a revolutionary folded lens on Galaxy S20 Ultra, bringing you closer than any other Galaxy phone. A high-resolution image sense powers both 3x and 10x Hybrid Optical Zoom, and camera AI enhances Super Resolution Zoom to let you zoom in close. Way close,” chirped Samsung at the time.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra zoom camera specs

That’s exactly the setup we are advised to expect from the Galaxy S23 Ultra, too, with the lion’s share of the possible camera upgrades going to the new and exclusive 200MP main camera sensor that Samsung is reportedly building to slap on its powerful 2023 flagship phone model.
