The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Plus might arrive with a 108MP primary camera and periscope lens with 50x zoom.
The smartphone’s rear cameras have been leaked, and while the upcoming Samsung flagship will get one of the S20 Ultras’s best cameras, its periscope zoom camera might not be powerful. Here is what you need to know.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Plus Cameras Details
Ice Universe unveiled some new information on the Galaxy Note 20 on their Weibo site. According to the leak, the smartphone should arrive with a 108MP primary camera, a 13MP telephoto, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, and a laser focus sensor.
The 108MP sensor resembles the one found on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, and it’s one of the most powerful cameras we can currently get from a smartphone. It’s nice that Samsung’s introducing that sensor onto its flagship Galaxy Note 20, but the S20 Ultra did come with some focusing issues, being very slow.
But that’s where the laser focus kicks in. Changing the standard ToF auxiliary sensor, this is possibly the remedy to Samsung’s camera trouble.
The 12MP ultra-wide camera has the same resolution as the ultra-wide camera on the Galaxy S20 series, but the 13MP telephoto camera is nowhere to be found on any of them. The S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus, for instance, have 64MP 3x hybrid zoom sensors, the S20 Ultra comes with a 48MP 4x optical zoom sensor with 100x hybrid zoom.
Ice Universe’s leaks now question what the standard Galaxy Note 20 lineup will use for its cameras. Samsung may introduce a smaller camera, like the 12MP sensor in the S20 and S20 Plus.
Samsung should unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series in August. It will most likely be accompanied by the company’s upcoming foldable, the Galaxy Fold 2. It could be joined, too, by the Galaxy Tab S7 tablet.
