Samsung tipped to copy Apple's new camera technology for the Galaxy S11

Samsung tipped to copy Apple's new camera technology for the Galaxy S11
Last month, just days after Samsung released the Galaxy Note 10 series, tipster Ice Universe (@ UniverseIce) cautioned consumers interested in picking up one of the new models. In a tweet, the tipster wrote "The S11 camera will bring something that has never been seen before. Samsung fans, if you care about the camera, please skip Note10." And Ice Universe followed this up with another tweet last week explaining what he was talking about in August. According to the tipster, Samsung is developing something similar to the Deep Fusion feature that Apple introduced for the camera system on the 2019 iPhones.

Deep Fusion uses a total of 9 images. Four images taken with a fast exposure and four secondary images are captured before the shutter button is even tapped. Pressing the shutter button snaps a photograph taken with a long exposure. In a second, the neural engine on the A13 Bionic SoC analyzes the fused images, going through 24 million pixels to create the best-detailed photograph with the lowest possible noise. The Pixel 3's HDR+ also merges a number of images (it captures 15 frames) but averages out the multiple exposures to produce the final photo. As Apple points out, Deep Fusion is the first technology that gives a neural engine the task of producing the final image.

If Ice Universe is correct, we should see a sizeable upgrade to the rear cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S11 series, which could be unveiled in February when MWC 2020 is scheduled. The expo will run from Monday, February 24th to Thursday, February 27th. You might want to pencil in February 23rd as a possible date for the unveiling of the Galaxy S11 line.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ both feature a triple-camera setup including a 12MP primary camera with a variable aperture of f/1.5-f/2.4, a 12MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom, and a 16MP ultra-wide camera. Whether the manufacturer would include a Deep Fusion-like feature on a Galaxy S11e model is not known at this point.

Copying is cheaper than creating. That is why there are cheap brands out there.

Copy what man? Apple didn't even release the feature Samsung is working on. So what exactly can they copy from Apple? Can you tell us?

Guess that's why Apple has pretty much copied everything that's new on the iPhone 11.

"Samsung is developing something similar to the Deep Fusion feature that Apple introduced for the camera system on the 2019 iPhones." Similar and copy are two totally different things. Step your vocabulary & synonym game up, please.

How is the idea being copied if this was tipped off before the iPhone 11 was announced & there's no leak or mention of the iPhone's camera features?

Well if we are talking about ideas Google had the idea before Apple.

Samsung either copies, buys or steals the work/ideas of others.

And who has apple copied from? Oh that's right you never acknowledge those things because you live in an apple delusional world.

You've confused Samsung with Apple, but we all know you're just a troll looking for attention.

They also very conveniently forget that Apple is not the first company who use OLED Display, Wireless Charging, Face Unlock, Support Wifi 6, Stereo Speakers, etc. Yea... Okay, that's just Apple adding new available features to iPhone. It only copying when it is the other way around.

Nope, phonearena said Apple was the first to do all of those .

Here is the thing, until someone comes along and moved us away from the 2007 iPhone template the world will always see everyone else as copying the iPhone. Google and every Android vendor can try as much as they can to shake that stigma, it will remain until they can move us beyond that template. Frankly, I can't wait for that and for all the flack Apple gets about not innovating I will ask who is in tech these days? Everyone is slowly improving their products. The problem for all the Android vendors is they don't control the software, play store and the services attach to it. The only place they can do anything is the hardware, and that's even limited. There is nothing they can bring to the table that the others can't, the hardware is a commodity at this point. That's why I laugh when a vendor adds 12gb of ram and some think its innovation. How about someone moving us past that template? Folding phone, still the same template, I am tired of this template already, next.

And the 2007 template is what exactly?

Alan, you are full of hatred for Samsung.. According to your submission, you said the tipster made mention of new camera changes to S11 way back in August.. At a time when the iPhone 11 was not even released.. So how can you relate a tipster's rumour of Samsung bringing something new to their camera to copying something that was jx announced by Apple recently...? Such posts of yours don't do any harm to Samsung or don't do any good to Apple.. but rather shows how inconsistent and how bias you are .. Phonearena.com used to be a number one site for technology reviews and knowledge sharing..... but reviewers like Alan and Victor have collapsed the relevance of it . What if Samsung brings something way different from what apple is offering.. Rethink

The Apple Worshippers Alan and Victor have the function to spread Apple Buzwords and relate everything to Apple. They are a shame for such a site.

Freedom of speech is frowned upon in these forums. I've been warned twice. I do agree. Don't know how the old Soviet satellite countries are run. I can take the criticism, but can't say that about others on/at PA. Just exercising my first amendment right as a US citizen.

actually I encourage that .. Not the coping thing but the inspiration .. and the last years Samsung and Apple getting inspired from the industry.. Xiaomi is the one coping from A to Z
