Prolific leaker Ice Universe just revealed what could be the camera configuration of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+. The upcoming flagship will reportedly come with a 108MP sensor coupled with a 13MP periscope lens and a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens. Samsung will also replace the ToF sensor with a laser focus sensor.

A part of the Galaxy S20 series' disappointing sales can be attributed to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, Samsung's outrageous pricing strategy also had a significant part to play in it. As the Samsung Galaxy Note 20's release date draws closer, a plethora of leaks follow. Much like its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 20+ has leaked quite a bit. The latest tidbit about the phone comes from the well-known leaker Ice Universe, who claims to have some insight on the phone's camera configuration.

Ice Universe states that the Galaxy Note 20+ will settle for a triple-camera configuration. It'll consist of a primary 108MP wide-angle lens coupled with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra's Bright HM1 sensor. Let's hope that it is a modified version, as the original design resulted in a lot of autofocus issues for Galaxy S20 Ultra users. A 13MP periscope camera will assist it, along with a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens. The Galaxy S20 Ultra's much-hyped '100x zoom' turned out to be a damp squib. That is why Samsung will reportedly cap the zoom at 50x this time around. Ice Universe's latest reveal also confirms an earlier report which stated that Samsung would bid adieu to the ToF sensor on the Galaxy Note 20 series. The phone will get a laser focus sensor instead, indicating that it might support PDAF and LDAF.

The above configuration (almost) falls in line with an earlier leak from Sleepy Kuma, which pegged the Galaxy Note 20+'s camera configuration as a 108MP+12MP+12MP setup. Its lack of 100x zoom and periscope camera was also speculated earlier. We can expect to see more leaks about the Galaxy Note 20+ in the coming weeks. It is also entirely possible that someone will leak the phone in its entirety well before its August launch.
