Another day, another Galaxy S21 leak. This time around, we’re talking about ultra-wide cameras that have been vaguely mentioned in leaks. And from its appearance, I have high expectations for ultra-wide snappers.
According to a solid Samsung tale, Ice universe, All three phones in the Galaxy S21 family use the same Sony IMX563 sensor for ultra-wide units. It supports dual-phase detection autofocus, has 12MP resolution and 1.4µm pixels, and is 1 / 2.55 “in size. Similar to the one on the Galaxy S20 Ultra5G, but with the addition of an AF bit.
Leakster also adds that the lens paired with the sensor mentioned above provides a 123-degree field of view, which is wider than the S20’s 120-degree FoV. Also, since AF is required, you can think that macro photography is possible. After all, most OEMs with AF on their ultra-wide units use AF for macro shots instead of hitting a dedicated macro camera.
