Samsung ‘s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will go official in just three short weeks and a number of major leaks have occurred leading up to the launch. Today, another hands-on video leak from the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra details the camera and video features, as well as quick mention of Google’s upcoming feature.
Jimmy is Promo, the same user who had previously shown Galaxy Note 20 Ultra hands-on leaks in both images and a short video, is back with another device video. This time around, the focus is not on hardware at all but on what users on the back of the phone would be able to do with the camera array.
As seen in the video, the camera array on Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is practically identical with earlier this year’s Galaxy S20 Ultra, but this time around Samsung has made a significant improvement in design.
The overall camera UI dives into the software and is the same. We can easily see in the first shot that Samsung has topped the zoom at 50x, possibly in reaction to the poor public reception to the 100x zoom found on the S20 Ultra. It’s a smart move, if you ask me. Nobody needs 100x blurry, anyway. It’s also clear that the main shooting modes will be at the standard focal length, a wide-angle view of 0.5x and optical zoom of 5x.
The Note 20 Ultra supports 8K, in terms of video capabilities, much like the Galaxy S20 series, with options for 24/30/60fps UHD, 24/30/60/120fps FHD, and 30fps HD. Samsung also added ability to fire in an aspect ratio of 21:9.
There are some “Pro Video” features on the Note 20 Ultra to better suit pro users too. It provides a histogram and several fine-tuned audio controls usable when a clip is being taken.
In the end, Google’s Nearby Sharing also appears on the device, to put a cherry on top. Google recently tested this function in beta, but the official, wide launch has yet to take place. Was this a warning by the time the Note 20 Ultra debuts come out publicly? Perhaps!
