Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus camera to support 8K at 30fps, but no 108MP sensor?
The Samsung Galaxy S20 series’ launch event is just around the corner. Now, just under a month ahead of the big day, we’ve seen some leaked information about the Galaxy S20 Plus’ upcoming camera specs and features thanks to XDA Developers.
According to XDA, the primary rear shooter on the Galaxy S20 Plus will feature the Sony IMX 555 12MP 1.8μm sensor. The secondary sensor will be a 48MP Samsung ISOCell S5KGW2, while the tertiary camera is a Samsung ISOCell S5K2LA. We still don’t know any details about the quarternary camera, but the front-facing camera has the same 10MP sensor on the Galaxy S10 and Note 10. Interestingly, the leaked information neither confirms nor denies the presence of a macro lens or a 108MP sensor. However, it’s most likely only the Galaxy S20 Ultra that will tout the ultra-high resolution camera sensor.
As far as features are concerned, the Galaxy S20 Plus cameras should be quite feature-rich. The device will support up to 4K video at 60fps or 8K at 30fps, though users won’t be able to record video at 24fps. Both front and rear cameras support optical and electronic image stabilization, and other features include zoom-in mic functionality, smart selfie angle, single take photo, and a pro video mode.
For those who don’t remember, zoom-in mic is a feature Samsung introduced on the Galaxy Note 10 that allows the audio recording in a video to focus on the subject the user zooms in on. Smart selfie angle is another existing feature Samsung is bringing over to the Galaxy S20 line that will auto-adjust the selfie-camera viewfinder to accommodate more people as they step into frame.
Single take photo is a nifty feature that allows users to automatically take videos and photos simultaneously by panning their device around a subject or area. Pro video mode should give users more granular control over their video recordings, though we don’t have any idea on whether Samsung’s impressive Director’s View will make it to the Galaxy S20 devices or not.
In the end, this Galaxy S20 Plus camera information seems pretty reliable, but we should always take leaks and rumors with a grain of salt. Anything can change until it comes straight from Samsung’s mouth.
