According to the latest report from XDA developer, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ supports 8K / 30 frames of video recording. Both the front and rear cameras support 4K / 60 frames of video recording and video stabilization (may include OIS and EIS). However, the Galaxy S20+ does not seem to support 4K 60fps HDR videos. Note that the 8K 30fps video also does not support HDR.

The Galaxy S20+ will probably use Sony’s new 12MP 1.8μm IMX 555, a sensor that has not yet been released. In addition, this smartphone will use a quad-rear camera setup. According to speculations, Samsung’s 108MP camera will only appear on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. 

In addition, Samsung will also add several new camera modes and functions to the Galaxy S20 series phones. 

  • Smart selfie angle: This mode will automatically switch the camera to a wide-angle when the phone detects more than two people in the selfie Mode.
  • “Single photo” mode: This mode can guide the user on how to move the phone when taking photos and videos. This is because the phone can be set to automatically take photos and videos. This mode has its own UI in the gallery, and it also recommends the best photos taken for users.
  • Professional video mode: Users can use the settings of professional mode in the video.
