The tip is coming from a reliable tipster, and it claims that the sensor will be large but not "particularly large," this could indicate that we will not be getting the same sensor that we have seen on the Vivo phones that is actually a lot larger than one would think.

For years, Samsung has been using somewhat similar-sized fingerprint sensors, and while it is not really an issue even for hardcore phone users, this does leave a gap because everyone is innovating, and Samsung is still using older hardware. However, this seems to be changing with the Galaxy S23 Ultra, where Samsung is looking to upgrade the fingerprint sensor.

Thankfully, the fingerprint sensor is not the only thing that will be getting an upgrade. We do know that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will also be using a 1-inch camera sensor, along with another impressive set of specs.

The phones are tipped to go official in early 2023 and will be sporting Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and other impressive hardware and software features. Let us know what you think about them.
