Note 10's low-light camera performance may be better than on the S10 family

Note 10's low-light camera performance may be better than on the S10 family
Samsung is not just going to slap the cameras from the Galaxy S10 5G on the Note 10+ and the S10+ on the Note 10 to call it a day, it seems. After yesterday's profusion of specs leaks confirmed that the cameras will be coming with tri-step aperture - f/1.5, 1.8 and 2.4 - instead of the f/1.5 and f/2.4 variable aperture abilities on the Galaxy S10 family.

That's not all there will be to it, however. Our friends from LetsGoDigital have excavated two interesting trademarks that Samsung has filed with the European patent office dubbed AI ISO and Smart ISO that have just been approved recently, ready to go into the Note 10 and 10+ camera software. 

Given the unique tri-step variable aperture, we'd wager to guess that these trademarks hint at ISO sensitivity enhancements and, eventually, improved low-light capabilities for Samsung's upcoming flagships.

Not that the S10 trio does not comprise of some of the best phones for low-light photography already but things could always be better. Apple is planning to soup up the iPhone in precisely the camera department this year, so Samsung isn't leaving anything to chance when it comes to mid-cycle upgrades in that department, too.
