In the past the popular pen-equipped Note version of Samsung’s high end Galaxy S series of devices was only available in one size (think XL), however, with the introduction of the  S10 Galaxy Note series, the electronics giant has unexpectedly offered two size options. The larger Galaxy Note 10+ has a 6.8 inch display – the largest of any Note to date, while the smaller of the two has a 6.2 inch screen and is more in line with larger version of the Galaxy S10 series.

For those in range of a 5G transmitter two further models, one in each size, will be available with 5G compatibility.

Mobile Photography – Huawei P30 Pro Review

Share

Huawei’s new Android smartphone is aimed at photography buffs and features a new tri-camera array, or quad-camera, if you include the separate ToF (Time of Flight) sensor that’s used to measure the subject/object distance for AF and the faux-bokeh effects.

We were able to get a P30 Pro in for a closer look.

The Huawei P30 Pro continues its association with the German high-end photo brand Leica, and it’s not just a licensing deal. It is according to Leica a synergistic effort, it’s been designed from scratch; it is not the same triple-camera array as found on the P20 Pro.

Before delving into the camera spec’s, impressive as they are, it’s worth mentioning a little bit about the device itself.

Samsung Electronics Anounces High Resolution Sensors for SmartPhone Cameras

Share

Samsung Electronics has launched two new high-resolution image sensors that are destined for multi-camera arrays in smartphones.

The two “Isocell” sensors – a 48-megapixel and a 32-megapixel unit both feature small size 0.8 micron pixels and are crucially compact to fit the slim bodies demanded of smartphone makers.

Called GM1 and GD1 respectively, the two new sensors feature Samsung’s Isocell Plus technology which adopts an innovative pixel structure that improves both light sensitivity and color fidelity, and what Samsung are calling Tetracell technology where the output from four pixels is combined into one (oversampled) for reduced noise.

The sensors also support the gyro-based electronic image stabilization (EIS) tech used in video capture.

It’s believed that the new sensors which start mass production in November will feature in the Samsung Galaxy S10 device, slated for release next year.
