DxOMark Image Labs (DxOMark) tests the quality of the photo and video capabilities of cameras and smartphones; and more recently also evaluates the quality of recording and sound playback. DxOMark estimates have been in use by many flagship smartphone manufacturers over the past years to show the performance of their cameras.
Does DxOMark prepare to release a new camera on the October 20 event?
On the official page of DxOMark on the social network Twitter, information has appeared that a special event will be held next week; at which some important announcement will take place.
The DxOMark Focus event will take place on October 20. In the official message, we should get a big announcement, but there are no hints yet. The link attached to the tweet leads to the live stream on YouTube.
In mid-2015, the DxO One external camera for Apple iPhone smartphones, which was created by DxO Labs, went on sale. An updated version of the device was released three years ago. Maybe it’s time for the DxO Two camera? It won’t be long to wait.
SAVE THE DATE: October 20, 5:00 PM CET.

DxOMark changes strategy ahead of iPhone 12 and Mate 40 release
Recently, DxOMark announced a change to its smartphone camera evaluation rules, promising to release an updated ranking of new camera phones in late October.
UPDATE: We’re making some exciting changes to our test protocols; and have postponed several of our DXOMARK reviews while we do so. We know you’re anxious for new scores, which will be here in late October. Stay tuned for more info.
In October, the flagship smartphones of the Apple iPhone 12 and Huawei Mate 40 line will appear on the market. Obviously, fans of both brands, and the manufacturers themselves, will be disappointed if the smartphones cannot defeat the current leader of the ranking – Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, which received 130 points.
DxOMark has previously implemented various changes in its evaluation test. So this information was not completely unexpected.
The top five DxOMark leaders now also include Huawei P40 Pro, Honor 30 Pro +, Oppo Find X2 Pro and Xiaomi 10 Pro.
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra disappoints and takes tenth place in DxOMark
DxOMark specialists have finally published a review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphone. Surprisingly, the new flagship of the Koreans not only did not become the best in the rating of the platform but could not even get around the Galaxy S20 Ultra model, taking only tenth place. The Note 20 Ultra received 130 points for photo quality and 101 points for video. Still, the Note20 Ultra is one of the best camera phones at the moment, and the gap from the leader in the DxOMark rating is only 9 points. And many have questions about this rating.
