Galaxy S20 camera’s Night mode improvements shown in leaked photos


Last updated: February 10th, 2020 at 18:22 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy S20 series, due to be unveiled in less than 48 hours, will have plenty of new stuff to offer. Upgraded cameras are expected to be among the main attractions of the new flagship, and while there’s still plenty of time left until Samsung puts the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra on retail shelves, it seems someone has already managed to test their cameras.

Twitter leakster Max Weinbach has shared photos of two low-light scenes that he says have been captured with a Galaxy S10 and a Galaxy S20. We can only assume the Galaxy S20 used was not the Galaxy S20 Ultra, as the Galaxy S20 photo isn’t a great deal better than the ones taken with a Galaxy S10. The Galaxy S20 photos are a bit brighter in both scenes, but we can only see notably higher detail in one of the two shots.

It won’t be entirely surprising that the Galaxy S20 camera won’t provide a massive jump in quality over the Galaxy S10. The Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ are said to be equipped with a 12MP primary rear camera that has a 1.8-micron pixel size, 0.4 micron larger than the Galaxy S10 and Note 10’s 12MP cameras, but the S20 camera is also expected to have an aperture of F1.8, whereas the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 camera have a wider aperture of F1.5.

And until we see samples from the Galaxy S20 Ultra, it’s impossible to say how the top-end Galaxy S20 model — with its 108MP primary camera — will fare in both nighttime and general photography. We can imagine it will be substantially better than the Galaxy S20 and S20+ on both fronts, but we will have to wait and see if that will actually be the case.
