Samsung has introduced its Galaxy A70 smartphone early this year, which featured triple rear cameras and was powered by a Snapdragon 670 SoC. The triple rear cameras featured a 32MP primary sensor along with an 8MP secondary ultra wide sensor and a 5MP depth sensor. The front of the Galaxy A70 featured Samsung’s Inifity-U display and the notch upfront also equipped a 32MP selfie shooter.
As we can see the Galaxy A70 has a decent cameras set up, Samsung is said to be stepping up the game by introducing a new variant of the Galaxy A70 called — the Galaxy A70S, which reportedly will be featuring a 64MP rear camera that will technically be the first smartphone to feature this new sensor, which is also developed by Samsung.
According to a report from ETNews, the Korean tech giant is said to be releasing its first 64MP camera equipped smartphone in the next half of this year. Samsung has recently unveiled its latest 64MP camera sensor, which is the company’s ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor that is claimed to be having the highest resolution in Samsung’s 0.8um-pixel image sensor line up. The new sensor is said to be producing 16MP images, which will further be pixel-merged using Samsung’s Tetracell technology to produce 16MP low light photos and also a detailed 64MP shots in brighter lighting conditions as well.
The report indicates that the upcoming Galaxy A70S will be the first device to be featuring the aforementioned 64MP image sensor that will be released most likely in the second half of this year, which is practically months away. Until now, there have been 48MP image sensors for smartphones that are often developed by Samsung or Sony, and this new sensor is indeed the first one producing a 64MP image natively on a smartphone.
If you’re wondering whether the upcoming Galaxy Note 10, which is also scheduled to launch in the second half of this year will be featuring this new camera, then you might be under a false impression here. Because the report had confirmed that this 64MP sensor would not be featuring in the Galaxy Note 10 since Samsung has been applying its newer technologies only to its mid-range smartphones and not the premium ones.
As for the other technical specifications of the upcoming Galaxy A70S is concerned, the speculations suggest the device will be nearly identical to what we have already seen on the current Galaxy A70, except for the cameras. If the report is believed to be true, then Samsung fans must have to wait for a couple of months more to witness Samsung’s first 64MP camera smartphone dubbed as the Galaxy A70S. Stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
