Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 50x zoom camera samples are startlingly good

Despite the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra being launched more than a week ago, we still have not seen comprehensive reviews of the cameras of the handset.

Techradar is trying to change that by uploading some sample pictures which gives us an idea of the capabilities of the quad-camera device.

The most interesting feature to most readers are likely the performance of the 50x zoom periscope camera, and Techradar journalist Matt Swider has uploaded a series of shots taken on the device which I think will not disappoint.


The pictures progress from 0.5x ultrawide / 1x regular / 5x optical / 50x digital and depicts various scenes around New York.

What do our readers think of the performance of the camera?
