We know at this point almost everything there is to know about the lineup of Samsung Galaxy S21, but Ice Universe gives some small but important details about the devices. This time it’s about the Galaxy S21 Ultra and why it might be the best phone for telephoto recording.
The detailed specs of the 10x zoom camera are no longer a secret. It will use a best-in-class 10MP, 1 / 3.24 “in size and with 1.22 µm pixels. The lens has f / 4.9 aperture, OIS and 240 mm (10x) periscope telephoto zoom. But the most important bit is that the periscope system zooms the 10x through only two refractions instead of five as other periscope systems do.
This should result in improved clarity and overall image quality, because the light entering the sensor just twice is much better than five times. Sure, we’ll get more details tomorrow.
