Samsung is rumored to stick to the 108MP sensor it introduced with Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G for its upcoming and much-anticipated Galaxy Note 20 phone. Now, according to the tipster Ice Universe, Samsung has resolved all the issues associated with the 108MP sensor so that the Galaxy Note 20 may not show any such issues that occurred on the Galaxy S20 Ultra before.
The camera sensor used in the Galaxy S20 Ultra lacked the PDAF system and that is the reason why the device is not able to focus on objects efficiently. Now, if Samsung has to use the same sensor in its upcoming Note series as well, it would first need to resolve the issues associated with the sensor. And, if we go by one of the latest tweets from the tipster, the focus issue has been solved as well.

In another tweet, the same tipster claimed that the Galaxy Note 20 will use the yet-to-come Snapdragon 865 Plus processor. This way, Samsung would become one of the manufacturers to make the maximum use of the processor. Samsung is also rumored to launch the Tab S7 tablet, Fold 2, and Z Flip 5G with Snapdragon 865 Plus processor already.
Previously, the same tipster, Ice Universe said that Samsung would add an extra sensor to the camera system of the Galaxy Note 20 to handle the possible focus issues. Now, the latest tweet does not explicitly mention whether Samsung has added dual-pixel PDAF or has fixed the issue another way. But it does claim that all those issues that occurred with the 108MP sensor on the Galaxy S20 Ultra have solved now.
