The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series is supposed to launch in August. The rumor mill has already suggested a ton of features, as highlighted in our summary feature. Now a source suggests that a 108-megapixel main camera for the Ultra is ‘confirmed’.
Roland Quandt of WinFuture.de took to Twitter to reveal the alleged news. Here’s that full Tweet:
As Quandt points out, this has been suggested for some time. However, what we don’t know about the 108MP unit is exactly how it will be implemented. In the Galaxy S20 Ultra, for example, there was a 100x zoom function, which was largely panoramic. The suggestion is that the Note 20 Ultra won’t stretch too much at such digital (or even optical) zoom levels.
There is also an expectation that the Note 20 will be a series, comprising the Note 20, Note 20+, Note 20 Ultra. The other two cameras are unlikely to receive this higher resolution sensor, as it is the defining factor in differentiating the Ultra from the rest of the series.
Quandt is a generally reliable information output, and with the release of Note 20 expected in early August 2020, the timing is on schedule. We will have to wait and see until then if it is true, and how well implemented this feature will be.
