The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is likely to come with a quad camera setup consisting of a 108-megapixel primary sensor, a 48-megapixel telephoto sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor and a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor.
Samsung is set to launch its next generation Galaxy S20 series smartphones on February 11. Ahead of the launch event, the Internet is buzzing with details about the upcoming smartphones. Now, a new report says that the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra will feature support for 100x zoom.
According to a report by SamMobile, Galaxy S20 Ultra will come with a quad-rear camera setup consisting of a 108-megapixel primary sensor, a 48-megapixel telephoto sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor and a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor. The rear camera module will also come with a periscope camera that will improve the optical zoom of the camera module. Overall, the phone will offer a 10x optical zoom and a 100x digital zoom, the report added.
Separately, Ice Universe, earlier this week, shared a camera comparison of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and the Huawei P40 smartphones. In his tweet, the tipster said that the top variant of the Galaxy S20 series will come with a 48-megapixel lens that will be powered by Sony's IMX586 sensor and support 5x zoom. The tipster predicted 5x, 10x, and 100x zoom for the Galaxy S20 Ultra smartphone, confirming the report by the blog site.

In addition to this, the phone is also tipped to get a 6.9-inch 120Hz Infinity-O display, Exynos 990 processor and at least 12GB of RAM. However, ahead of the launch date details around the phone's specs seem to be getting a bit hazy. Samsung hasn't confirmed anything yet. So, all we can do for now is wait for the launch event.
