Samsung delivered some impressive camera technology on the Galaxy S20 Ultra earlier this year, featuring a 108MP main camera, a periscope zoom camera, and 8K recording. Now, the famous tipster Ice Universe has shared apparent Galaxy Note 20 Plus camera specs, and it’s like Samsung might be learning where the S20 Ultra left off.
Galaxy Note 20 Plus Camera Specs
The leaker alleges that the Galaxy Note 20 Plus will have an equivalent Isocell Bright HM1 108MP main camera because of the top-end S20 model. This sensor is capable of Nona-binning, combining data from nine adjacent pixels into one. This pixel-binning solution means the sensor spits out 12MP shots from its 108MP camera.
Ice Universe also claims that the upcoming Galaxy Note 20 model will pack a 12MP “2L3” ultra-wide camera (referring to the firm’s Isocell Fast 2L3 sensor) and a 13MP “3M5” periscope camera (referring to Samsung’s S5K3M5 camera sensor). The latter would be an enormous drop by resolution over the S20 Ultra’s 48MP periscope camera. If true, this means the firm may have decided better low-light quality was more important than more megapixels.
The leaker adds that the Note 20 Plus will pack a laser focus sensor rather than a 3D ToF camera, also as 50x zoom rather than 100x zoom seen on the S20 Ultra. We’d be happy to ascertain Samsung dial back on the low-quality 100x digital zoom feature and specialize in improving hybrid zoom instead.
Ice Universe features a good record for leaks, but they’re not perfect. So, we’ll get to await more leaks to corroborate these Galaxy Note 20 Plus camera specs or for the official launch event.
This new leak also comes each day after Samsung’s Bluetooth SIG filing for a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. It’s Samsung will rebrand the Galaxy Note 20 Plus to become a Note 20 Ultra instead, with the model number within the filing tied to the Note 20 Plus also. It’s also possible but less likely that the firm features a third Note 20 variant within the works.
