Galaxy Note 20, Note 20 Ultra camera differences illustrated in new leak

The camera housings found on the back of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will look remarkably similar to each other; especially compared to their direct predecessors. That’s according to a known Samsung insider close to some of the company’s component suppliers based in China. As seen herein, the newly leaked side-by-side comparisons of the two smartphones’ rear camera modules suggest Samsung invested some extra effort into unifying the aesthetic of the incoming Galaxy Note generation.

This minor streamlining could be indicative of a broader shift in product design, just a happy accident, or something in between. However, the more uniform the final result is, the more likely it becomes for Samsung to just spill the beans on its own come early next month, or at least by the time the Galaxy Note 20 family releases in late August.

Three more weeks, two more Galaxy Notes

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra was previously rumored to include a 108MP main camera supported by a 12MP ultra-wide unit and a 13MP periscope lens that tones down from the 100x zoom gimmick seen on the Galaxy S20 Ultra to something in a much more consistent ballpark of 50x. In fact, several months’ worth of leaks and reports suggest we’re in for a far more balanced mobile photography experience overall. Which doesn’t guarantee a change in the overall marketing strategy compared to recent premium addition to the Galaxy series. But a camera that’s evolutionary across the board certainly wouldn’t be hard to advertise as one of the key selling points of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

Samsung’s final major reversal in the flagship camera department that the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is expected to embody is said to be the removal of the time-of-flight sensor debuted just a year earlier. Filling in for it should be a conventional laser autofocusing system, but refined to an entirely new level of performance, as per some previous industry rumblings.
