Galaxy S20 will take pictures with all three rear cameras at once

The Galaxy S20 series will bring many upgrades over the Galaxy S10 lineup, and the camera experience will be one of the main attractions of Samsung's upcoming flagship. It won't be just the camera hardware that will make the Galaxy S20 series stand out from everything that has come from Samsung before. The company has also prepared a number of new software features for the camera, many of which were detailed in a report from the folks over XDA Developers a few months back.

Now, Max Weinbach of XDA Developers has revealed yet another new Galaxy S20 camera feature. The feature is reportedly called QuickTake and will capture a scene with all three rear cameras and then let the user choose which of the three photos they want to keep. As had been reported previously, the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra will also have a video version of the feature called Single Take Photo. Single Take Photo will capture a series of photos and videos as the camera is panned around and then let the user choose the pics and clips they like and discard everything else.

QuickTake is one of those features that Samsung could have implemented on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 as well, just like it didn't need to first take out the option to record videos in Pro mode from its phones and then bring it back with the Galaxy S20. When taking pictures with the Live Focus mode, Galaxy phones let you store both the bokeh shot and a standard picture at the same time, and QuickTake will simply do the same for photos from the three main rear cameras.

QuickTake should come in very handy: You wouldn't need to switch between the regular and ultra-wide cameras when taking a photo of a landscape when you're out holidaying, for example. And it's possible Samsung will bring the feature to the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series with a software update after the Galaxy S20 is released. The Korean giant hasn't been shy about bringing camera functionality from new flagship to older devices in the past year or two, so we should see the same happen this year as well.
