With the Galaxy Note20 unveiling date fast approaching, the leaks surrounding the device are also picking up pace. This time around, a short hands-on video of the Galaxy Note20 Ultra has leaked which shows some of the new camera features of the device.
The hands-on video suggests that the Galaxy Note20 Ultra will feature up to 50x hybrid zoom, 10x digital zoom, and 5x optical zoom. It looks like the Korean company has given up on its 100x Space Zoom feature that it first debuted with the Galaxy S20 Ultra earlier this year. That feature ended up being a gimmick and was panned widely so it is not surprising to see the company ditch it so soon.
The Galaxy Note20 Ultra will also feature a Pro Video mode that will support a plethora of resolution and frame rate combinations if the video is to be believed. It will also be capable of recording videos in the cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio at UHD resolution in 60fps. Other Pro Video settings will include Histogram support, the ability to specify the microphone from which audio will be recorded, and more.
Lastly, the video also shows that the Note20 Ultra will support Google's upcoming AirDrop competitor, Nearby Share. Samsung debuted a similar feature called Quick Share with the Galaxy S20 series earlier this year and it is unclear if the company will drop that feature in favor of Nearby Share or not.
All the features mentioned above are likely a part of One UI 2.5 and Samsung could roll them out to the Galaxy S20 series as well with a future software update after Note 20's launch. Samsung is scheduled to announce the Galaxy Note20 series along with some other devices at its Unpacked event scheduled for August 5.
