While Samsung is setting the stage for its upcoming flagship phablet, Galaxy Note 10 and the much-awaited Galaxy Note 10 Pro, many of us are quite curious to know what camera upgrades are in the books especially after Huawei P30 Pro annihilated this year’s Galaxy S10 Plus in low-light photography and the company’s CEO quipped that Galaxy phones cannot see the galaxy.
We do not have any confirmed news yet about the camera setup of the Galaxy Note 10 other than the rumors which indicate a quad camera setup for the Pro variant of the smartphone including a ToF sensor similar to the one we saw in the Huawei P30 Pro.
The standard Galaxy Note 10, however, would come with a triple camera setup at the back which will likely be similar to the one we saw in the S10 series earlier this year. So the question is, in the light of the tech industry’s focus on photography this year, should we expect major camera upgrades from Samsung’s upcoming flagship devices?
The short answer is “No”. Samsung is preparing to overhaul its entire Note series this year by releasing four Note 10 variants, two with 4G connectivity and the other two with 5G capability. For the first time ever, it is bringing a pro variant in the series which will have slightly better specs than the standard smartphone giving multitaskers around the world to choose the device which best suits their needs.
At the same time, apart from increasing the number of camera modules in the Galaxy Note 10 Pro, rumors suggest that there won’t be any major changes presented to users this year.
According to Ice Universe, a renowned tipster, the Galaxy Note 10 will be the company’s last flagship smartphone which will feature 1/2.55-inch 1.4um CMOS camera module which it has been using for the past 4 years. From 2020, the South Korean tech giant will be adopting “a new large-size large-pixel CMOS.”
In May 2019, a report suggested that Samsung is mass producing its new 5x optical module which is available in P30 Pro but sadly, the same tipster also revealed that this feature is no coming in Samsung’s flagship devices any time soon. This basically scraps all our hopes regarding zooming updates inside the Galaxy Note 10 series.
