- The new Samsung Galaxy S30 Ultra once again shows that it is aiming for a redesign of the camera.
- It is reported that the phone will have four rear cameras and one “unknown” sensor.
Another supposed rendering of the Samsung Galaxy S30 Ultra has appeared, providing new details about the possible range of rear cameras of the phone and a mysterious sensor.
According to adviser Steve Hemmerstofer, the image is very similar to the renderings we’ve seen before. The Galaxy S30 Ultra will likely include a redesigned camera array shared with the S30 and S30 Plus. More important is what the S30 Ultra camera array contains. According to Hemmerstoffer, the phone will now have four cameras along with a fifth “unknown” sensor in the upper right corner of the case.
There are few details about the camera arsenal of the Galaxy S30 Ultra, but early leaks in specs suggest that the company can draw considerable inspiration from the Galaxy S20 Ultra. It is then possible for Samsung to reuse the 108MP sensor. The telephoto and ultra-wide setting can also repeat their roles. We have also seen rumors that Samsung may include a secondary telephoto camera in a similar way as the Huawei Mate 40 Pro Plus and P40 Pro Plus. This would improve the image quality over the entire magnification range.
How about the mysterious sensor? One rumor suggests that Samsung may abandon the ToF camera, as was done with the Note 20 series. But this sensor in the upper right corner certainly looks like a non-standard addition, suggesting that it is an autofocus module or actually a ToF sensor. .
Interestingly, this would not be the first time we have heard of a Samsung hearing aid phone with five rear sensors. The Galaxy A72, apparently set to launch in early 2021, features a 64MP sensor, telephoto and ultra-wide shooters along with a special bokeh and macro shooter lens.
