A decade of Galaxy S camera improvements in one infographic


Last updated: May 20th, 2020 at 18:00 UTC+02:00

Samsung always took pride in the camera setup of its Galaxy S flagship phones, and the company’s series has been going strong for the past decade, starting with the original Galaxy S and leading all the way to the most recent Galaxy S20 series. The company is now reminding fans of its most important camera advancements over the years with a new infographic.

The first Galaxy S was released in 2010 with a 5MP camera featuring anti-shake, face detection, and autofocus among its main features. Samsung’s next notable upgrade to its mobile camera tech arrived in 2012 with the release of the Galaxy S3, when zero-lag shutter speed was introduced. One year later, the company attempted to break convention with the Galaxy S4 Zoom – a smartphone featuring an actual camera lens stuck to the back panel, boasting 10x optical zoom.

With varying results, Samsung never gave up on improving its mobile cameras

Real-time HDR was added with the Galaxy S5, and two years later, the introduction of dual-pixel autofocus to the Galaxy S lineup left a big positive mark. Dual Aperture was added to the series with the Galaxy S9, and Super Steady was the Galaxy S10’s newer additions to the camera.

Finally, the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra that were released earlier this year made way for super-high resolution image sensors, 30x / 100x zoom, Single Take, and 8K video recording. And while we’re aware that the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s camera wasn’t without issues especially early on, these advancements in mobile camera technology are bound to lead to further improvements with the next generation Galaxy S21 and beyond.
