Samsung plans to bring a 5x optical zoom camera to its upcoming flagship phone, the Galaxy S11, which is expected to launch in the first half of 2020.
This is reportedly the first time that Samsung has used these cameras in Galaxy phones. Samsung launched these 5x optical cameras in May, launching several smartphones from Chinese companies, including the Oppo Renault and Huawei P30.
Advantages of optical zoom
Optical zoom is much better than electronic zoom. But the use of this technology makes the phone thicker, so most smartphones only have a 2X or 3X optical zoom rate, similar to Samsung's (Galaxy S10) phone and Apple's (iPhone 11).
The Korean daily reports that the unit's optical zoom camera (Galaxy S11) will be like a telescope, preventing the camera from being over-emphasized on the back of the phone.
