The Galaxy S21 Ultra is among the best smartphone cameras in the world right now, and Samsung is expected to improve it even further with the Galaxy S22 next year. However, the next-generation Galaxy S flagship might not include a 3D ToF (Time of Flight) sensor that was used in the Galaxy S20 Ultra and the Galaxy S10 5G.

According to a new report from South Korean publication ETNews, Samsung has made up its mind not to include a 3D ToF sensor in the Galaxy S22 series. A 3D ToF sensor uses infrared light to create accurate three-dimensional depth maps of objects and helps the camera with focusing and portrait images in low-light conditions. It is also used in AR apps and games due to its accuracy.

An official from Samsung reportedly said that consumers are satisfied with the image quality of the Galaxy S21 even if it lacks a 3D depth sensor. Hence, the company has decided not to use it in the Galaxy S22 as well.

Samsung could bring back 3D ToF camera when there are enough meaningful AR apps and games

Samsung believes that 3D ToF sensors don’t serve a meaningful purpose in flagship smartphones right now. However, the company could bring back the feature when there are enough satisfactory AR apps, games, and experiences in the market. Despite Apple’s latest iPhones and iPads featuring a LiDAR sensor (similar to 3D ToF), its usage is said to be low among consumers right now.

Samsung LSI, the company’s camera sensor arm, recently showcased its newest 3D ToF sensor, the ISOCELL Vizion 33D. The 1/3.2-inch VGA sensor aims to provide best-in-class photography, AR/VR experiences, 3D scanning, and video bokeh effects. It features a 4-tap demodulation system, allowing each pixel to receive four-phase signals simultaneously at 0, 90, 180, and 270 degrees.

Coming back to the Galaxy S22, various reports claim that the phone will have a bigger camera sensor. The company could also tie up with Japanese camera brand Olympus to improve its camera quality. The Galaxy S22 is also expected to feature an Exynos processor with AMD Mobile Radeon graphics for improved gaming performance.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has been one of the most anticipated devices in 2020. Now that this giant is finally out, it's time to focus on one very important aspect of this phone: battery life. Pure power is good, camera performance is important, but if you run out of battery it won't matter. We subjected the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra to our rigorous testing procedures, designed with real-life use cases in mind.

Samsung jumped on the "Ultra" side of the year, so we have to compare the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with the Galaxy Note 10+, as the former is the logical successor to last year's Note. There is one big unknown in the equation - the variable refresh rate. The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra's screen can run at up to 120Hz, and if you're wondering how that affects battery life, we've got you covered.

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra's extra 200mAh battery capacity translates into extra battery life in our browsing test. The phone showed a decent result - 11 hours 57 minutes, which is about half an hour more than the Galaxy Note 10+. However, this result was achieved when using the manual 60Hz refresh rate mode. When we use extra hertz in automatic mode, the battery life is reduced by two and a half hours. After all, convenient browsing has its price.


Galaxy Note 20 performed almost exactly the same as the Note 20 Ultra at 60Hz, which is actually quite good. Especially given the smaller battery. But then again, the Note 20's screen is also slightly smaller (6.7 vs. 6.9 inches), so no surprises here. However, without smooth viewing at 120Hz.

Samsung phones are traditionally among the best phones when it comes to YouTube video streaming battery life. Interestingly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra breaks with tradition with a rather dull result. We used the 60Hz mode since YouTube doesn't support higher refresh rates anyway, but the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra lost almost an hour of YouTube playback time compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 10+, despite the larger battery. As a result of roughly 7 hours of video playback, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra lags behind most flagships, which is a shame considering its great display. The Galaxy Note 20 lasted 17 minutes longer in video playback, again not a stellar result compared to the competition.0003

Mobile gaming is probably the best use case for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra's variable refresh rate display. After all, high refresh rates have been the holy grail for professional gamers for years, and now the technology has finally found its way to mobile phones. Unfortunately, intense 3D gaming at 120Hz drains the battery like nothing else. And while 60Hz results are comparable between the Note 20 Ultra and Note 10+, 120Hz gaming consumes more than 2 hours of battery life, resulting in a result of 5 hours and 8 minutes. Keep in mind that not all games support high refresh rates, but after all, drawing extra frames on the screen requires power. When we take a look at the Note 20. The little brother lacks a 120Hz display and yet it can only last six and a half hours of continuous gaming.


The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is undoubtedly an amazing piece of engineering. You can check out the full Galaxy Note 20 Ultra review and see for yourself. Unfortunately, while Samsung has taken a few steps forward with its new flagship, battery life is a little disappointing. Even without enabling the 120Hz display refresh rate mode, the phone falls behind the competition. You expect more from such a big phone, with a big battery and good.... The price tag is big, but that's what it is. All of the above applies to the Galaxy Note 20 as well, which adds insult to injury.

It's always possible for a software update to improve things, and we've seen it before, but for now, battery life is one of the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra's few weak points, at least compared to the competition.
