Samsung Galaxy Note10 tipped to come with a three-stage variable aperture

Sagar, 20 June 2019

Samsung has been equipping its flagships with variable aperture since the Galaxy S9 series debuted early last year. This allowed the cameras to improve sharpness in good light, while retaining great low-light performance. Well now, the company is said to take a step further by introducing a three-stage variable aperture on the Galaxy Note10.

This information comes to us through industry tipster Ice universe who said that the Galaxy Note10's camera will use a three-stage F1.5/F1.8/F2.4 variable aperture. For comparison, the Samsung flagships so far can only do F1.5 and F2.4.

The F/1.5 aperture should be useful when you are taking photos in dim conditions, as it will allow more light to pass through, thus resulting in a brighter image. This will also let you capture photos with a shallower depth of field.

The F/2.4 aperture, on the other hand, should produce sharper images with larger depth of field in bright conditions.

By offering a three-stage aperture with F/1.8 in the middle, Samsung probably wants to give more flexibility to the users.

Samsung is said to launch two phones of the Note10 series on August 7 - the vanilla Note10 and the Pro variant. It's currently unclear if both the models will get three-stage variable aperture, or whether it will be restricted to the Pro version.
