A few weeks before the official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, its photo module is revealed with the mention of a digital x100 zoom which would only be present on the most high-end model.
If many leaks have mentioned in recent months the Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus , the third expected model has remained rather in the shadows, at least so far. We now know more about it, notably on its photo module thanks to the Indian leaker Ishan Agarwal .
This one has indeed put online this Saturday on Twitter an image supposed to represent the photo module of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra . You can discover a module divided into two parts: a first with three devices, a priori similar to that of the Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus, and a second with another camera. This one, equipped with a square lens, seems to adopt a periscopic design, like the Huawei P30 Pro or the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom . Next to it is the mention “100x”, which seems to indicate that the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra will make it possible to go up to a 100x digital zoom – therefore with loss of quality. Enough to offer a focal length equivalent to 2700 mm if we assume that the main module will have an equivalent 27 mm as is often the case on smartphones. In optics, the zoom of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra should, however, be limited to 10x, or a focal length equivalent to 270 mm.
In addition, graphic designer Ben Geskin has tried to reproduce what the photo module could render on a full 3D rendering of the smartphone. According to journalist Max Weinbach of the XDA Developers site , which has published a lot of information on the new Samsung range, this is “the rendering closest to what [he has] seen” .
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra should take advantage of four cameras on the back with the main module of 108 megapixels, a zoom of 48 megapixels, an ultra-wide-angle of 12 megapixels and a ToF sensor for portrait mode. It would also benefit from the front of a 40-megapixel sensor for selfies. The smartphone should also benefit from a 6.9-inch screen of 3200 × 1440 pixels with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a battery of 5000 mAh.
You will have to wait until February 11 to learn more about the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and the entire new range of Samsung. It is on this date that the Korean manufacturer must indeed officially present its new smartphones at a Galaxy Unpacked conference organized in San Francisco.
