KEY POINTS

  • New leak reveals Samsung Galaxy S20+ camera features
  • It comes with Pro Video, Smart Selfie Angle and Single Take
  • Galaxy S20+ to support 8K 30fps video recording

The new flagship Samsung Galaxy S20+ is set to arrive on Feb. 11, 2020, and new screenshots have surfaced, leaking the camera specs. The images reveal that there are at least four rear cameras and one on the front.

According to Max Weinbach of XDA, it is likely that Samsung Galaxy S20+ will be launched with one of the best cameras on a modern smartphone. The upcoming smartphone’s main camera is a 12MP Sony IMX 555 sensor with 1.8 μm-size pixels. Meanwhile, the secondary camera is rumored to be a 64MP Samsung ISOCell S5KGW2 and the third one is likely to be a Samsung ISOCell S5K2LA sensor. The details about the fourth camera remain unknown.

Talking about the front camera, the report suggests that it will be a 10MP Sony IMX 374 sensor which is the same as one that comes with Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note 10. The front camera supports video recording in 4K 60fps. Coming back to the rear camera setup, Sony IMX 555 is an unreleased sensor and will be the main one in Galaxy S20+.

Meanwhile, it cannot be confirmed that Samsung Galaxy S20+ will be armed with a 108MP sensor or a macro lens. However, XDA has stated that both Galaxy S20 and S20+ will arrive with 3X zoom.

In the video recording department, Galaxy S20+ will have the capability to record in 8K at 30fps. However, it has to be noted that users cannot switch from 30fps to 24fps. The smartphone will also be able to record videos in 4K 60fps in video stabilization mode for the rear as well as front cameras. It appears like the new flagship from Samsung will not support video in 4K 60fps HDR mode.

In terms of audio recording capability of Galaxy S20+, the zoom-in mic present in Galaxy Note 10 will appear in the S series lineup this year. This technology allows the user to match the audio with the frame they are recording. The audio will zoom in as the video is zoomed in while recording.

The selfie lovers can expect the Smart Selfie Angle feature in Galaxy S20+ that will detect the number of people in the frame and accordingly activate the wide-angle mode. The feature-rich Galaxy S20+ will come with additional camera modes like Single Take and Pro Video.
