The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will mark a major upgrade in camera quality for Samsung’s flagship phablet, according to a new set of leaks.
A new pair of tweets from regular and reliable leaker Ice Universe detail the Note 20 Ultra’s potential camera specs. Ice Universe has made numerous accurate claims about Samsung phones in the past, so there’s reason to believe this information is credible.
The first tweet notes that the Note 20 Ultra will have 50x maximum zoom, rather than the 100x max on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. We’ve heard this before from a previous Note 20 camera leak, but it’s unclear why Samsung might be going in this direction.
Note20 Ultra will cancel 100X, the maximum is 50X, Samsung will strive to optimize the zoom experience of the maximum 50X, more focus on the experience.
Optimization sounds like the right move though. As impressive as the S20 Ultra’s specs were, it was a difficult phone to take good pictures with due to the inherent difficulty of using high magnification on a phone combined with a slow-focusing main sensor. The Note 20 Ultra is also said to be getting a laser depth sensor though, which should hopefully help with the latter problem and make it far easier to use.
