Galaxy S11 leak more and more circulating on the internet. Rumors previously said that Samsung will equip the Galaxy S11 camera with a periscope camera with 5x optical zoom capability. This news is further strengthened by patents registered with EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office).
The patented technology is named “Space Zoom” which is said to be internally referred to as “Hubble”. From the patent revealed by Let’s Go Digital , this technology patent was registered on 6 November. In his patent, clearly stated information “software to enlarge subjects without reducing image quality” aka lossless zoom capability .
The code name Hubble used indicates that this technology will also support astrophotographic or celestial photography. Little information, Hubble was the first space telescope in the world to orbit in 1990. The Hubble Telescope became an important milestone in space shooting.
Hubble’s camera shots produced photographs that were widely published in books about space. All kinds of space objects ranging from objects as close as the moon to the most remote galaxies to photographs of supernovae and nebulae have been captured. Maybe, Samsung is inspired by the ability of Hubble.
Back to astrography, this feature has begun to be offered by several smartphone vendors lately. Like the Huawei P30 Pro, which claims its periscope capability can take pictures nicely with the moon, despite the software controversy that was crowded. Recently, Google Pixel 4 also offers similar features.
In addition to Space Zoom, the Galaxy S11 camera will reportedly still be transporting features that are already inherent in the Galaxy Note 10. Summarized from Phone Arena, one of Samsung’s suppliers said it had built a special factory to make ToF (time of flight) sensors.
This sensor is pre-existing on the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. Chances are, the ability of ToF will be enhanced and will spread to Samsung mid-sized smartphones. Not many specifications or further information about the technology called Space Zoom will be pinned to the Galaxy S11. This rumor will only be answered at the beginning of the coming year when the Galaxy S11 was officially launched.
