By now, we all know that smartphones are capable of taking great images. In fact, more and more professional photographers are using their phones for work assignments. But Samsung is taking things to a whole new level with the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S20 series. With these three full-5G smartphones, they’re revolutionizing creative possibilities through a host of new features and a 108-megapixel sensor.

The Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra were all designed with the modern user in mind. With a thin design and nearly bezel-less display, the phones are as sleek and beautiful as they are functional. Each features 8K video capabilities with still frame extraction, which means you can count on high-quality stills while filming. Another feature, single take, lets you take up to 10 seconds of ultra-wide/wide-angle footage and then uses AI technology to recommend video formats and spit out four video clips and ten still frames. This means you don’t have to worry about retakes and still get different creative views of the same scene.

When it comes to still photography, nothing beats the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s 108-megapixel rear-facing quad-cam.  This leaves photographers open to incredible opportunities to crop and zoom photos without losing any detail. “Our most advanced zoom yet starts with 10x Hybrid Optic Zoom enabled by a revolutionary folded lens and high-resolution image sensor,” states Samsung. “Couple that with Super Resolution Zoom enhanced by camera AI to get close up to the action and capture moments you might have missed.” While the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ don’t have 108 megapixels, their 64-megapixel rear-facing cameras can’t be dismissed. Both allow for up to 3x Hybrid Optic Zoom and have dual pixel autofocus.

If you’re worried about all the power and storage space you’ll need to support such a powerful smartphone, Samsung has taken care of everything. Using AI technology, the Galaxy S20 series learns how you use your phone throughout the day and will adjust the power setting accordingly. In terms of storage, it includes up to 512 GB of internal storage, with the possibility to expand to 1 TB using a microSD. That should allow for up to 750,000 photos so that the delete button will become obsolete.
