Best Smartphone Camera, Ever?!
Another crown jewel of Samsung's new Galaxy S20 range of smartphones is the camera, where Samsung made some gigantic changes -- especially in the flagship Galaxy S20 Ultra. It's the largest upgrade to the camera on a Samsung smartphone ever, and something I truly can't wait to test out in the wild.
Samsung has equipped its new Galaxy S20 smartphones with a main 12-megapixel sensor -- but it rocks a new pixel pitch that provides a 65% larger area and allows for better light capture. All of Samsung's new Galaxy S20 smartphones can record 8K video at up to 30FPS, which is another gigantic win for Samsung above its competitors -- especially Apple.
Starting with the regular Galaxy S20 we have a triple-camera array with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide snapper, 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a 64-megapixel telephoto lens. Not bad for the regular Galaxy S20 at all, and remember we also have 8K 30FPS video shooting abilities.
Next up we have the middle sibling of the new Galaxy S20 family with the Galaxy S20+ which has a quad-camera setup, where it rocks the same 12-megapixel ultra-wide, 12-megapixel wide-angle, and 64-megapixel snappers of the regular Galaxy S20 but its joined by a DepthVision sensor.
Samsung ramps things up to 11 with its Galaxy S20 Ultra and its quad-camera system, offering a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, but a hugely-advanced 108-megapixel wide-angle lens, that is then joined by a slightly-smaller 48-megapixel telephoto lens, and like the Galaxy S20+ it retains its DepthVision sensor.
What you'll be able to do with that 108-megapixel camera is going to be amazing, as Samsung has somehow crammed in a sensor that is capable of driving a 10x zoom/crop while keeping its 12-megapixel resolution. This means you'll get ridiculous image quality when zooming, or cropping your picture. Awesome sauce.
