As its launch date is drawing near, more and more leaks concerning the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra show up. In the past, we heard that the main camera assembly of this next-gen flagship is going to feature two telephoto lenses. Now, the time has come for the alleged technical details to show up and it looks like Apple should be afraid. 

In a recent tweet, Ice universe revealed the following details regarding the two telephoto cameras of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, highlighting the fact that this would be "the strongest optical zoom system known," but most likely in a mainstream smartphone:

  • 3X 1/2.8" 10MP 1.22μm dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus
  • 10X 1/2.8" 10MP 1.22μm dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus

Right now, the most potent handsets with optical zoom camera setups are the Huawei P40 Pro Plus (50 MP + 8 MP (3x) + 8 MP (10x) + 40 MP), Vivo X30 Pro (64 MP + 13 MP (5x) + 32 MP (2x) + 8 MP), as well as the recent Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max (5x optical zoom range, with 2.5x optical zoom in and 2x optical zoom out).

In addition to the camera details mentioned earlier, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is also expected to feature laser autofocus, dual-video recording with 4K 60 fps video for all cameras, and 8K 30fps video recording for the main camera.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
