South Korean tech giant Samsung would add a Time of Flight or ToF sensor to the rear camera on the Galaxy Note 10 series, as per a report.

According to a report in Korea’s ETNews, Kolen — Samsung’s partner that specialises in cameras for smartphones — is building a new plant in Vietnam closer to the Galaxy S and Note factories to kick-start the production of the ToF sensors.

“We are planning to produce lenses through our new plant in Vietnam according to Samsung Electronics’ plan to expand the application of ToF lenses for its smartphones,” a Kolen representative told ETNews.

Samsung is planning to launch two Note 10 smartphones on the lines of the S10 series. The regular Note 10 would have a display size of 6.28-inch while Note 10+ will sport a bigger 6.75-inch display.

According to leaks, the Note 10 phones may use a three-stage variable aperture that will switch between f1.5, f/1.8 and f/2.4. Samsung currently offers dual variable aperture feature on Galaxy S series phones. The Note 10+ is expected to be a 5G smartphone. There are rumours that it could also launch a separate 5G Galaxy Note device.

The Note 10 series smartphones are expected to run on the Exynos 9820 SoC paired with up to 12GB of RAM. In addition, the company is likely to skip the standard 3.5-mm headphone jack and even physical keys for functions like volume and power on its upcoming Galaxy Note 10. (IANS)

South Korean tech giant Samsung is reportedly planning to introduce 8K video recording support to its upcoming smartphone Galaxy S11.

A new code in the APK file (the Android app software file) for Samsung’s camera app suggests that Galaxy S11 lineup would support 8K video recording, XDA Developers reported on Sunday.

The Exynos 990 chipset, which is expected to power the international variants of the device, features 8K@30fps video decoding/encoding capabilities.

Additionally, Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 865 chip, which will power the US variants of the S11, is also expected to have enough horsepower to offer 8K video recording.

Earlier, famed leakster Ice Universe had claimed that the Galaxy S11 would not use the 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor that it launched earlier this year, but would instead utilise an upgraded second-generation sensor.

Opting for a second-generation version of Samsung’s 108MP lens would also make sense, since the original version has on a Xiaomi handset first, so it won’t be a totally new thing by the time the Samsung Galaxy S11 launches.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11 smartphone will be available in three screen sizes – 6.4 or 6.2-inch being the smallest, mid-sized with 6.4-inch and 6.7-inch being the largest one.

Evan Blass also claimed that there would be five variants in total that all sport curved-edge displays.

On the part of connectivity, the two small variants of the smartphone will come in 5G and LTE, whereas the largest 6.7-inch variant will be 5G only.

As per a recent report, Galaxy S11 would arrive in the third week of February 2020 and the launch event is said to take place in San Francisco. (IANS)
