Galaxy S20 and S20+ 5G's 64MP high resolution camera offers sharper resolution that keeps the clarity, even when you crop way into images.1

The 64MP gives you incredible detail in your photos so you can pinch in again and again without losing clarity, and as we pinch in on the photo, we discover a scene of a man walking in front of a billboard with an arm pointing, and it looks as if the billboard is tapping the man on the nose
