Samsung to Spice up Game of Low Light Photography

In the contest of camera one-upmanship, low light photography is currently one of the areas of focus, with Google’s Pixel cameras famously offering a revolutionary AI-powered Night Sight Mode. Apple is providing a much improved Night Mode.

Samsung has also been engaged in improving its low-light performance, with a devoted Bright Night Mode, however, now a brand new trademark filing suggests the South Korean tech giant is planning to take the battle to the next stage.

It was filed on 28 November 2019, and experts suspect the name may show up in advertising for the next Samsung flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S11.

Renders of the Galaxy S11 have already surfaced online, giving us details in regards to the specifications and design of the smartphone. Galaxy S11 series of smartphones is anticipated to come with 4G as well as 5G capability, and powering the smartphone will either be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC or an Exynos 990 SoC. It’ll run Android 10-based OneUI 2.0 out of the box.

The Galaxy S11 camera will arrive with a huge 108MP Samsung ISOCELL HMX sensor, which goes to be better than the one available on the recently-launched Mi Note 10 and Mi MIX Alpha. The smartphone will come with several useful camera features, and these include Director’s View Mode, Night Hyperlapse, Single Take Photo, Vertical Panoramas, and custom filters. Samsung Galaxy S11 shall be able to capture 8K at 30fps video and will have support for 5x optical zoom.

Samsung, of course, doesn’t have the software finesse of Google, and devoted hardware comparable to a Bright Night Sensor does help it stay competitive, at the cost of pushing up prices of the handsets.
