New Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra leak mentions a 10x optical zoom lens
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.
