Samsung‘s latest flagship, the Galaxy S20 series, arrived with a capable camera setup but one which was plagued with a few technical issues, especially in the Exynos model. But now, it seems like the company is planning on improving upon this in its next premium flagship generation, Galaxy S21, as claimed by certain rumors.
According to a new report, the Samsung Galaxy S21 may feature a penta camera setup. That is, it will have 5 image sensors on the rear with its primary lens being a whopping 150 megapixel shooter. This is a sizeable increase from the 108 megapixel ISOCELL sensor that the Galaxy S20 Ultra features. Interestingly, the rumor also claimed that the Galaxy S21 series camera will be dropping the laser autofocus technology.

Additionally, the 150 megapixel sensor will be supplemented by a 64 megapixel telephoto lens alongside a 16 megapixel ultra wide angle sensor as well. Unfortunately, the maximum magnification length of the telephoto lens is currently unknown. The Galaxy S21 will also feature a 12 megapixel macro lens with a ToF sensor rounding up as the fifth camera.
The rumor has not been officially confirmed, so take it with a grain of salt for now. Although going along the same lines of rumored improvements, the selfie shooter was said to also see certain enhancements like OIS support and a bigger sensor. That is all we know so far but stay tuned for more leaks and reports.
