Samsung’s next line-up Galaxy series may be launched later next month, but leaks and speculations around the much-hyped flagship phone. In a break from its typical naming convention, the South Korean electronics giant will be calling the marquee device the Galaxy S20.
The new S-series Galaxy phones will keep the ‘+’ suffix for the larger version of the phone but will name the higher-end model the Galaxy Ultra 5G. The Galaxy S20 series of smartphones are expected to have improved displays, more powerful batteries, and vastly improved cameras.
The camera details revealed by the tipster are a bit different from what we’ve come across in previous leaks and reports. Also, there is no mention regarding the type of sensor, but it appears that the 12-megapixel sensor is a mainstay on all three phones and will act as the main sensor, while the other 12-megapixel sensor will be the wide-angle snapper. However, the role of each camera sensor is not known, especially the high-resolution 108-megapixel and 64-megapixel snappers.
As for the leaked Galaxy S20+ camera details, as per the reports, the primary camera on the Galaxy S20+ is a 12-megapixel unit that employs the Sony IMX555 sensor and has a pixel size of 1.8 microns. A secondary camera is a 64-megapixel unit with an in-house ISOCELL S5KGW2 sensor. The tertiary snapper employs Samsung’s own ISOCELL S5K2LA sensor. The front camera is said to be a 10-megapixel shooter with the Sony IMX374 sensor. Interestingly, the front camera will let users shoot 4K videos at 60fps, just like the main rear camera.
This top-tier version is expected to feature an impressive 16GB of RAM – more than most modern laptops.
Talking about camera features, the Galaxy S20+ will let users capture 8K videos at 30fps, and this will most likely be available on the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20 Ultra as well. The rear camera will be able to shoot 4K videos at 60fps backed by OIS and EIS, but it not clear if it will take advantage of Samsung’s new Super Steady OIS technology that made its debut on the Galaxy S10 Lite.
