13 April 2020
The company is said to be evaluating two possible options, one of which features OIS, the other a larger sensor.

        Seriously? Just for a selfie or vlogging? You can make it as new different series, but not continue it with S line.

        You dont even did well on big rear sensor, Samsung. Fix that first.

                  I wish they use 1/1.33" 12-16mp sensor instead of 48, 64 or 108mp sensor. That could make image quality much better. I think Large sensor is underutilized these days by having more number of pixels.

                        They need to use larger sensors like that for the main camera but at 20 to 40mp

                          Sometimes you guys even forget that exaggeration has its limits too.

                            You should check out the Apple bionic processor.
                            Even now P40 pro can't catch the tail of normal DC (RX100 series), not to mention dslr
                            you should see the dynamic range of a raw pic from a DC....

                              P50 is going to come with only two camera 10x periscopic 50mp and one wide angle 90mp free form camera.sensor is going to be nearly 1 inch. And guess what the best processor and huawei os..just better than mid range dslr.. so whatever samsung does must held in place only for usa customers..

                                Let's make spy-cam better, sure.

                                  Go for the 1/2.55 sensors as used in iPhone Pro, Pixel 4, Galaxy S10. It has larger pixels(1.4 micron) dual pixel autofocus system for fast and accurate focus. With OIS the result from selfie cam will be better.

                                    To be honest for me, when it comes to selfies, just give me dual camera with wide and ultrawide sensor just like in Google Pixel 3/3 XL, LG V40/V50 and Honor V30/V30 Pro.

                                        Also, no CPU can extract whole power of image sensors.

                                        IMX555 of s20 has faster readout than one used by s10.
