Samsung Galaxy S20 leaks seem to be on full swing right now. Yesterday, a massive tip outed the camera specs of the Galaxy S20 Plus and Galaxy S20 Ultra. Now we can add the standard Galaxy S20 to that list.

The latest rumor comes from Ice Universe (via SamMobile) who tweeted out the alleged camera specs of all three smartphones in the series. According to the leaker, the regular Galaxy S20 will feature a 12MP main camera, a 64MP telephoto camera, and a 12MP ultra wide-angle lens.

While the newly leaked camera specs for the Galaxy S20 Plus and Galaxy S20 Ultra match the previous leak, they also give out info on the fourth sensor in the lineup. You can see that both the higher-end flagships come with a Time-of-Flight sensor. The Galaxy S20, on the other hand, features a standard triple camera setup just like the Galaxy S10, albeit with a souped-up telephoto camera.

Interestingly, the telephoto shooter on the Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus has a higher megapixel count than the one on the S20 Ultra. The 64MP Samsung ISOCell S5KGW2 is said to offer 3x optical zoom and 30x digital zoom.

In comparison, the S20 Ultra is expected to feature more powerful zoom capabilities. The phone’s 48MP telephoto lens is rumored to allow up to 10x optical zoom and 100x hybrid zoom. It’s also apparently the only phone in the series to get an ultra-high resolution 108MP primary sensor. Given its camera specs, the S20 Ultra is clearly shaping up to be king of the upcoming flagship lineup.

It’s also noteworthy that all the three smartphones get a 12MP ultra wide lens, which is a slight downgrade from the 16MP ultra-wide shooter on Samsung’s previous flagships. Will it make a lot of difference to the quality of ultra wide photos? We’ll only be able to tell once we test out the devices for review.
