Samsung Galaxy Note10/Galaxy Note 10+ Cameras
The Galaxy Note10 has a triple camera setup on the rear with a 12MP f/2.1 telephoto lens with optical image stabilization (OIS) and a 45-degree field-of-view. Then there’s a wide-angle lens with a 12MP sensor with a variable aperture (f/1.4-f/2.4) and a 77-degree field-of-view as well as optimal image stabilization. Finally, there’s the ultra-wide lens with a 123-degree field-of-view paired with a 16MP f/2.2 sensor, which lacks any kind of stabilization.
Apart from this triple-camera assembly, the Galaxy Note10+ packs an additional sensor at the back, next to the flash. Samsung is calling this VGA sensor the “DepthVision” camera, and it will let you take 3D scans of objects. On the front, both the Samsung Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10+ pack a 10MP f/2.2 camera with autofocus and an 80-degree field-of-view.
Four live focus modes — Blur, Big Circle, Color Point, and Glitch —let you apply effects to the background in your photos as well as videos and, as the name suggests, you can see them live even as you take the picture or record the video.
Arguably the most interesting camera-related feature is a new Zoom-in Mic that will let you tap any person in a recording and have their sound enhanced in the resulting video. This should — in theory, at least — let you focus on the sound of the lead singer, for example, if you are recording a musical performance at a crowded venue with a lot of background noise.
Both devices also pack a brand new video editor app, which lets you edit videos on-the-go. As you would expect, the app includes S Pen support, letting you doodle text on videos apart from using the stylus to make certain operations faster and more intuitive.
