COMPARE CAMERA FEATURES
All Galaxy S20 series’ front and rear cameras include Single Take for quick, 15-second clips and Space Zoom for magnifying objects near or far. Although you can capture incredible shots with each model, there are a few differences.
SINGLE TAKE: TAKE ONE SHOT, GET MULTIPLE FORMATS
You’ve heard of burst mode? Meet beast mode. With revolutionary AI, Single Take lets you shoot for up to 10 seconds and get back a variety of formats—meaning you can choose the best style for the moment without having to reshoot.
You can use Single Take to create photo clips of scenes, objects, and people. The camera’s AI will decide which images to capture to make a video.
HOW TO USE GALAXY S20 SINGLE TAKE FEATURE:
To start the camera, navigate to and open the Camera app, and then tap SINGLE TAKE. Tap Capture. When Single Take is activated, the camera will utilize multiple functions at once, including Best Shot, Ultra-wide Shots, Live Focus, Filter, and Smart Crop. The videos will use motion photo, bounce and reverse, and Hyperlapse.
After you’ve taken your shots you can select a thumbnail, and then tap Favorite (the heart icon) to set it as your favorite of the bunch.
To access additional editing options with Single Take, touch and hold the thumbnail you’d like to edit. Tap Best shot (the crown icon) to set a clip as the best-looking photo. Tap Save to add the thumbnail to your Gallery and delete the rest. Tap Share to send your video or clips to friends or a social media app.
You can also create a movie by tapping Story Video Editor, and then choose from Highlight reel to show off the best moments from your clips, or Self-edited if you’d like to trim the video yourself. In Story Video Editor, you can customize your video by adding text or music.
When using Single Take, the camera will capture up to five photos and four videos, depending on how long you choose to record.
NIGHT MODE – BRIGHT NIGHT
The new Galaxy S20 phones also offer improved lowlight photography, stability, and zooming functions. If you need to take a selfie or video while out with your friends after dark, use Night mode for a vivid shot without any distortion.
In low light, the pro-grade camera system captures multiple photos at once, merging them into one stunning shot with minimal blur and noise. With larger image sensors and AI, switching to Night Mode means you can shoot luminous nighttime scenes without flash, even in low light.
Pull off those large group selfies with steady capture that offers smooth images every time. When filming a video, you can turn on the improved Super Steady feature to help keep images as clear as possible. The frame will remain steady no matter how you’re holding your phone.
With the Galaxy S20’s Space Zoom technology, even when you are far away, you can zoom in close. Use up to 30x zoom on the Galaxy S20 and S20+ with Space Zoom, our AI-based Super-Resolution Zoom, or step- up to 100x Space Zoom, with the revolutionary folded lens on the S20 Ultra with 10x Hybrid Optic Zoom.
You can zoom in from at least 100 feet away using the Galaxy S20 5G and Galaxy S20+ 5G models and still capture the details on your subject. Use the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G’s advanced zoom while standing 300 feet away and still get that perfect, clear shot.
Once you’ve taken your photo, tap the Edit icon to crop it. Touch and drag the corners of the photo until you are finished cropping, and then tap Save.

That’s 4 times bigger than UHD and 16 times bigger than HD. That’s right, moving images that keep their super-sharp resolution even on your Samsung TV screen.
The Galaxy S20 offers stunning 8K video shooting, so users can capture their world in true-to-life color and quality. When you are done shooting, stream your video to a Samsung QLED 8K TV and enjoy a best-in-class viewing experience or grab a still from an 8K video and turn it into a high-res photo. And even the bumpiest videos look like they were shot using an action cam, thanks to Super Steady and its anti-rolling stabilization and AI motion analysis.
Craft your content with a pro-grade tool set made for masters. Control the way you capture with the options at your fingertips in Pro Mode. Just like on a DSLR, you can manually adjust settings like ISO, shutter speed and exposure level to your heart’s content.
