The buildup to the February 11 launch of the next Samsung Galaxy S series flagships received a boost when some screenshots showing the camera configuration in the Samsung Galaxy S20+ were leaked. Max Weinbach of XDA-developers has been able to obtain the screenshots and it reveals the details of the quad-camera setup, though incomplete. XDA adds that the images are not the very latest and if you find any anomalies in the details here it may be due to the software and the specs will not vary much when the device hits the market.
Camera Specs of the Samsung Galaxy S20+
According to the details obtained by Weinbach/XDA, the main camera to be fitted on the Samsung Galaxy S20+ will be a 12MP shooter and is identified as the Sony IMX 555. The secondary camera is the large 64MP sensor from the South Korean company’s own 64MP Samsung ISOCell S5KGW2. The third shooter in this arrangement is the Samsung ISOCell S5K2LA, which could be the telephoto lens. The prediction is that this telephoto lens will have 3X optical zoom and 30X overall zoom capability. This leak could not find information on the fourth camera. It can only be assumed at this point that the Time of Flight or ToF sensor would be the fourth one. You will have to wait a little longer for confirmation on that.
As far as the front camera is concerned, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ will be fitted with a 10MP shooter. The same selfie camera can be found on Samsung Galaxy S10 an Note 10 as well.
Only the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra to Sport the 108MP Shooter
XDA has preempted the question everyone would want to ask; how come the most talked about 108MP sensor is not figuring in this setup? The answer being given is these revelations pertain to the Samsung Galaxy S20+ and the 108MP sensor will be seen only on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra model. Again, there’s no way this can be confirmed or denied.
As reported earlier, one striking feature of all the models in this Samsung Galaxy S series smartphone cameras will be the capability of recording 8K videos in 30fps mode. XDA confirms in its report that it found sufficient evidence to confirm that this is present in the information collected about the Samsung Galaxy S20+. The front camera can support 4K video recording at 60fps. The front camera is also expected to come with a feature ‘Smart Selfie Angle’. This is explained as the ability of the front camera to make an assessment of the number of people being covered while clicking the selfie and it can automatically increase the angle to wider coverage of the field to include everyone in the group. This too has been witnessed in the predecessor flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note 10.
XDA has added an image of the rear camera bump showing the three sensors placed vertically one below the other and the fourth located alongside within the rectangular bump. There is the LED flash above this fourth camera and a tiny hole below it. The hole is being described as a provision for a microphone.
