A new Galaxy S20 report simply set a damper on those 10x optical zoom rumors

As indicated by The Elec (using Sammobile), Samsung is sourcing prisms for 5x optical zoom camera modules. Optrontech — a South Korean producer of optical parts — has affirmed that it has provided the said prisms to Samsung for the Galaxy S20 series.

Conflicting to past rumors, The Elec doesn’t specify 10x optical zoom by any means. One purpose behind this could be that Samsung has reserved a 10x optical zoom just for the S20 Ultra. There’s likewise an opportunity that the 5x optical zoom module is intended for the regular Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus.

On the other hand, It’s conceivable that Samsung will cap optical zoom to 5x in each of the three phones. If so, Huawei’s supposed P40 series could be the first to feature 10x optical zoom. In any case, everyone exceptionally questions Samsung will pass up on a chance to best Huawei in the camera division.

In light of what everyone knows up until now, the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra will have fluctuating camera configurations. Samsung’s ultra high-res 108MP camera is likewise said to be kept to the S20 Ultra. So it’s conceivable Samsung is sourcing prisms for the 10x optical zoom module from elsewhere and they simply don’t think about it yet.

Everything everyone can accomplish for the present is speculated on the bits of gossip that are out there. Regardless of whether the Galaxy S20 phones get 5x optical zoom, it’s as yet a significant jump over the current 2x zoom module utilized in the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 phones.
