Leak confirms that the Galaxy Note 20 will come without a laser focus sensor
With the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series' release date drawing closer, more leaks have started emerging about their hardware. Given the somewhat lackluster performance of the Galaxy S20 series, the phones' camera configurations have been at the center of many discussions. The differences between last year's Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus' cameras had been marginal. However, they appear to be more prominent this time around.
Ice Universe posted an image that showcases the camera sensors used on the Galaxy Note 20 next to that of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Prima facie, one can see that the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra gets an additional set of sensors located below the flash module. That could likely be the proposed laser focus sensor that is tipped to replace last year's time-of-flight (ToF) sensor. Unfortunately, it does not tell us much about the actual camera configuration of either device. However, it shouldn't be long before we find out more about it.
Several reports have confirmed that the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will come with a modified version of the Galaxy 20 Ultra's 108MP sensor and ditch the 100x zoom branding. The 'base' Galaxy Note 20 is unlikely to get the same sensor, and will likely use the Galaxy S20 Plus' 64MP lens instead. Samsung will unveil both phones and the Galaxy Tab S7+, Galaxy Fold 2, and the Galaxy Buds Live on August 5.
