With Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event just around the corner, you’d think that just about every detail had been leaked, but no – there’s more. Even though it’ll be some weeks until Samsung’s new phones hit retail shelves, it seems someone’s managed to get their hands on at least one of them and taken some sample photos.
Twitter leaker Max Weinbach has shared some photos of two low light scenes, captured on the Galaxy S10 and then on the Galaxy S20. The difference between the two sets of photos is stark – while both S20 samples are brighter, only one shows significantly more detail.
As SamMobile notes:
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.
Still, don’t take it from someone else, take a look at the two sets of photos yourself and see what you think:
