Galaxy S25/ S25+ cameras will not be upgraded: Report

Next month, Samsung might release the new foldables (Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6). Still, the company is already working hard to develop the next generation of the company’s slab flagships, the Galaxy S25 series.

As usual, it will be unveiled in early 2025 and will consist of the same three models: the Galaxy S25, Galaxy S25+, and the Galaxy S25 Ultra.

Recently, rumors have started swirling around about the Galaxy S25 series, with the S25 Ultra expected to get major camera upgrades to its ultrawide and 3x telephoto lenses, as well as faster UFS 4.0 4-lane storage. A few days ago, we also reported on the Galaxy S25, which is rumored to have the same 4000 mAh battery as its predecessor.

Today, a new report reveals disappointing details about the Galaxy S25 and S25+ cameras. According to the report by the Dutch publication GalaxyClub, Samsung is not expected to give any significant camera upgrades to the Galaxy S25 and S25+.

This means that the base and the Plus variants will continue to carry the same 50 MP main rear camera as the Galaxy S22, S23, and S24 and the same 12 MP selfie camera as the Galaxy S23 series and Galaxy S24 series.

The 50 MP sensor is the ISOCELL GN3, a 1/1.57″-sized sensor, complete with PDAF and OIS. This sensor has served the phones well with Samsung’s great camera processing on the S22 series onwards. However, it is getting quite dated now and starting to fall apart in front of the competition’s larger main camera sensors.

In a slight glimmer of hope, the report does not confirm specific details about the telephoto and ultrawide lenses of the Galaxy S25 and S25+, leaving open the slight possibility of a possible upgrade. Still, given Samsung’s past history with complacency, we’d be surprised if they actually upgraded those two cameras.

Hence, expect the two phones to carry over the same 12 MP 1/2.55″ ultrawide and the same 10 MP 1/3.94″ 3x telephoto as its predecessors in the S23 and S24 series.

We expect the Galaxy S25 series to be announced early next year, sometime in January or February 2025.
