Samsung Galaxy S20 could borrow this cool camera feature from the LG V40 ThinQ
Samsung’s Galaxy S20 series is launching next week and pretty much all major details about the phones have leaked. But we’re now getting information about some new camera features that the S20 flagships might house.
Serial tipster and XDA contributor Max Weinbach says that all three Galaxy S20 phones will get a camera feature called QuickTake. This will allow users to capture three individual photos at the same time from the main, ultra-wide, and telephoto cameras.
also because you guys totally missed it in the S20 one, the S20 will take pics out of 2 or 3 of the lenses and will let you choose pictures after the fact. It’s called Quick Take— Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) February 2, 2020
So when you hit that button to click a picture, the phones will actually take one image from each of the sensors. You will then be able to go into the image gallery and select which photo you want to keep.
Samsung’s QuickTake feature seems similar in functionality to LG’s Triple Shot feature which was introduced with the LG V40 ThinQ. LG’s triple camera phone also allowed users to take a photo with each lens via this mode.
In addition to saving three images in the photos app, the LG V40 ThinQ also created a short video by compiling the images. The Galaxy S20 trio will also do that (albeit to an even greater extent) with another rumored feature called Single Take.
According to Weinbach, this feature will basically let you pan around your S20, S20 Plus, or S20 Ultra to take pictures and videos from all three lenses. The captured media will be automatically edited, perhaps for social media sharing.
New night mode also incoming?
While we don’t know if this is a new feature for the Galaxy S20 series, it could improve night time photography on the new flagships.
As you may know, low-lit scenes require you to increase ISO levels thereby increasing the light sensitivity of your camera. This results in brighter images. Currently, the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 phones on Android 10 allows one to set the ISO at 3200.
We’re not sure if the new feature will make the ISO range even higher. It could also just improve the existing Night Mode in the Samsung Camera app.
Guess we’ll have to wait to see what Super ISO is all about and if it’s actually headed to the Galaxy S20 series.
