The race for the best smartphone camera has become increasingly intense, with the winners increasingly turning to computational photography and artificial intelligence to boost picture quality.
Samsung has lagged behind somewhat in this area and has instead added hardware features such as its dual-aperture camera in the Samsung Galaxy S10. The company did recently release a night mode app for their Galaxy devices, but it is not competitive with those produced by the likes of Google and Huawei. It seems, however, that with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, Samsung is intent on catching up.
Let’sgodigital has uncovered 2 new trademarks which suggest that Samsung will be adding new smarts to their smartphone camera. The two trademarks are for AI-ISO and smart ISO, which apply to cameras, smartphones, camera sensors, software for camera sensors. The AI, of course, refers to Artificial Intelligence and we think that it is safe to assume that Samsung will be copying the other smartphone giants, and improve the light sensitivity of their smartphone cameras.
We know, of course, that Samsung has also pursued hardware improvements with the Note 10, with the device featuring a triple aperture camera which supports F/1.5, F/1.8 and F/2.4. For the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, Samsung is also adding a 3D ToF sensor which should allow for new camera effects.
The full hardware specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 range has already leaked, with the only mystery being the software enhancements the camera brings. We should know much more when the device launches on the 7th August 2019 at Samsungs Unpacked event.
