100x space zoom (S20 Ultra only)

The big display featured in the Galaxy S20 series has the same resolution as the Quad HD + 3200 x 1440, although models vary in size. The 120 Hz refresh rate of the Galaxy S20 series operates in Full HD + 2400 x 1080 mode, while the Quad HD + 3200 x 1440 resolution runs at 60 Hz.


Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ support up to 3x Hybrid optical zoom and up to 30x Super Resolution Digital Zoom, while the Galaxy S20 Ultra offers 10x Hybrid optical zoom and 100x Super Resolution Digital Zoom. Although the digital zoom is not used in real life due to an image quality deterioration problem, the 100x Super Resolution Digital Zoom shows a clear difference from other products.

Brighter, clearer Night mode

The new Galaxy S20 series also enables you to capture bright and vivid pictures, even in low-light conditions. Larger sensor size allows for more light at night.


Night mode and HDR (High Dynamic Range) delivers the right brightness and darkness, which means pictures taken in night mode are clearer and brighter.

Customise my camera filter

The Galaxy S20 series can extract various colour filters from images and apply them to your original photo and even re-colour the picture with it. This allows you to create your own special photos. 


When you want to take a picture with an effect you like, just save an image into the Gallery app, and the AI of the Galaxy S20 series will extract the colour filter based on the filter database.

Step 1. Open the Camera app and tap the Filter icon in the upper right-side of the screen. It will lead you to the next screen where you can view My filters.

Step 2. Tap the (+) button to create a new filter, and the Gallery app in your phone will open.

Step 3. Tap Pictures or Albums to find the photo that contains the filter you want.

Step 4. After tapping the photo, it will appear as a thumbnail. Tap the name of the filter to rename it and Save to add it.


  •  To remove the filter, hold down on the created filter and then tap Delete.
  •  Your filters can also be organised by tapping and holding or dragging them into a different order.
