Details on the Phone Camera
Recently Samsung concluded that some of the major upgrades which consumers were looking forward to, in Samsung phones, were improved cameras. With that out in the open, Samsung revealed at the Unpacked 2020 what the new Samsung S20 5G and the S20+ 5G will both feature the 10-megapixel front cameras. Whereas, on the back, it is revealed that there will be three cameras; one 12 megapixels 120 degree ultra-wide, another 12 megapixels wide and then a 64-megapixel telephoto.
The new telephoto sensor uses a system Samsung terms as the “Space Zoom.” The Space Zoom feature is what makes the camera zoom on the Samsung device incredibly smooth and interesting. Here, the optical zoom on the camera will not shred or pixelate the image upon the high zoom. So whether you’re planning to zoom 3x or 30x, the AI processing unit on the Samsung camera will make sure that it considerably minimizes the pixelate effect on the image. As far as the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is concerned, the front selfie camera on the phone will be 40-megapixels, while the ultra-wide is the same as the normal S20 5G. The wide camera has a remarkable 108-megapixel sensor whereas the telephoto can go as much as up to 48 megapixels. And that too with a folded 4x optical zoom lens.
The super steady stabilization on the S20 has been significantly improved. It has enhanced the better low-light performance on the camera. It also features the side rolling option. The camera is optimized in a way that it will smooth out rocking up to 60 degrees from side to side and works extremely well.
You will also get a Night Hyperlapse mode now on the phone and you can also run any HDR video too.
Bad News for Verizon Subscribers
It’s not just the incredibly heavy size of the phone what makes Galaxy S20 series a device that needs a bit of more rework, but the 5G feature can further cause a little bit more confusion. Since all the three devices offer full-support for the 5G moniker, only the S20+ 5G, and the S20 Ultra 5G further promotes and support both the Sub-6 and mmWave. The S20 5G only has the Sub-6 which is worthy of attention
