  • Colour Options: Cosmic Grey, Cosmic Black

These camera sensors all work together to provide Samsung’s latest signature camera feature called “Space Zoom”. Now, as its name suggests, this is a feature that enables Super Resolution zooming of up to 100X (double Huawei’s zoom on their P series). There is also a 10X Hybrid Optic Zoom on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. To achieve greater quality in their photos, the S20 Ultra is capable of something called “nona-binning”, which combines the nine pixels in the 108MP sensor into just one pixel, producing a much clearer 12MP image with all details retained. Not only that, the S20 Ultra also does 8K video recording at 30 frames per second. Not forgetting selfies, on the front there’s a 40MP sensor in the Infinity-O screen for ultra clear selfies.
