Samsung introduced the Galaxy S20 flagship range of smartphones last night (take a look at our hands-on with the S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra) with a new camera system that combines AI with Samsung's largest image sensor to date. 


All three S20 variants come with 5G capability, shoot 8K video, come with a new 'Single Take' camera mode and the Ultra version of the S20 even has a 108MP camera. The S20 and S20+ aren't too shabby either both with 64MP cameras.

Thanks to nona-binning technology which combines nine pixels into one at the sensor level, the Galaxy S20 Ultra can shift dynamically between a high-resolution 108MP mode and a 12MP mode and thanks to the larger sensors (1.7x-2.9x larger than the sensor on the Galaxy S10), all three smartphones should be able to perform better in low light levels.

 

A combination of Hybrid Optic Zoom and Super-Resolution (digital) Zoom gives the Galaxy S20 and S20+ 5G up to 30x zoom while the S20 Ultra 5G features up to 100x zoom. 

We've mentioned 'Single Take' which is a camera mode that uses AI to capture a number of photos and videos, such as Live focus, cropped and Ultra Wide in one go so you have more choice after hitting the shutter button and you can also capture stills from the 8K videos you capture. Talking of video, Super Steady and its anti-rolling stabilisation/ AI motion analysis are built-in. 

The entire series is equipped with massive storage as standard (128GB for S20 and S20+ 5G; 128GB and 512GB for S20 Ultra 5G) and battery power is good, too, with 4000mAh (S20), 4500mAh (S20+) and 5000mAh (S20 Ultra) batteries built-in which support fast charging. 

Displays measure 6.2-inch (S20), 6.7-inch (S20+) and 6.9-inch (S20 Ultra) with Samsung's Infinity-O 10MP f/2.2 selfie camera cutout and near bezel-less sides. 

As for the rear camera set-up, there's a triple camera on the S20 and quad-camera on the S20+ and S20 Ultra.
