The Samsung Galaxy S30 series may skip a key piece of camera tech

With the Galaxy Note 20 now out in the wild, we can turn our attention to the next flagship due to arrive from Samsung – namely the Galaxy S30. According to reports, a key decision about the on-board camera technology has already been made.

Sources speaking to The Elec have indicated that the Galaxy S30 series camera won’t have a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor on board, as the Galaxy S20 Plus and S20 Ultra do: that’s the sensor that uses infrared light to measure how far away objects in a scene are, enabling portrait blur effects as well as more accurate augmented reality (AR) renderings.
