- The Galaxy Note 20+ is tipped to have a 13MP periscope camera with 50x zoom.
- Samsung's upcoming flagship is also rumored to have a 108MP ISOCELL Bright HM1 primary sensor and a 12MP ultra-wide-angle shooter.
- The Galaxy Note 20 series is expected to be unveiled at an online-only Unpacked event in August.
Popular tipster Ice Universe had claimed last month that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ will not have the Galaxy S20 Ultra's 100X "Space Zoom" feature. Ice Universe has now shared some more details regarding the camera hardware of the Galaxy Note 20+, claiming the upcoming flagship will only feature three cameras on the back.
As per the tipster's latest post on Weibo, the Galaxy Note 20+ will have a 108MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright HM1 primary sensor, just like the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The phone's ultra-wide-angle shooter is tipped to use a 12MP ISOCELL Fast 2L3 sensor. The sensor behind the periscope lens, however, will be a 13MP ISOCELL SLIM 3M5, which has a significantly smaller 1/3" size compared to the S20 Ultra's 48MP 1/2" type sensor.
The 13MP periscope camera will apparently offer up to 50x digital zoom, an improvement over the 30x maximum zoom offered by the Galaxy S20 and S20+. While recently leaked renders of the Galaxy Note 20+ had suggested the phone will have a total of four camera sensors on the back, Ice Universe says the fourth sensor on the back of the Note 20+ will be a laser focus sensor to assist the 108MP main camera.
Samsung is expected to take the wraps off the Galaxy Note 20, Note 20+, and Galaxy Fold 2 at an online-only Unpacked event in August.
