We have heard many Galaxy S20 camera rumors so far and now, it is time for a new one. The new leak is coming from usually reliable tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) via his Twitter account. He has tweeted that both Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ will feature a special 64-megapixel camera sensor.
The tweet mentions that it is not your typical Pixel binning sensor and will not result in 16-megapixel still shots. Instead, it is a telephoto sensor that will be used for zoom-in and 8K video recording purposes. The Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ are said to lack periscope-styled camera setup which means these are most likely to offer digital zoom and no optical zoom. It will be cropping the image digitally to achieve the level of zoom required by the user.
The telephoto sensor S5KGW2 of the S20 / S20+ is a special pure 64MP camera. It cannot be 4 in 1 combined into 16MP. It will be used for pixel cropping zoom and 8K video.— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) January 29, 2020
There is a separate leak that claims to have revealed all Galaxy S20 series color variants. It mentions that while Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ will have three color options each, the Galaxy S20 Ultra will offer only two. It is unknown how many of these colors will be available globally and which ones will be region-specific.
To be specific, here are the alleged Galaxy S20 series color variants:
- Galaxy S20: Blue, Silver, and Pink
- Galaxy S20 Plus: Blue, Silver, and Black
- Galaxy S20 Ultra: Silver and Black
