Leakster Ice Universe has posted a breakdown of the image sensor models that will be used by the Samsung Galaxy S20 family. It shows that the company will use a mix of Samsung and Sony sensors.
Let’s start from the top. The main camera on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra will use S5KHM1, a 108MP sensor. A custom version, it seems, Samsung’s other 108MP sensor (i.e. the one used in the Xiaomi Mi Note 10) is the S5KHMX.
That’s followed by the S5KGH1 for the ultrawide cam, a 44MP ISOCELL Slim sensor, 1/2.65” with 0.7µm pixels and a Tetra cell filter (Samsung’s take on Quad Bayer). The telephoto camera gets a Sony IMX586, a 48MP Quad Bayer sensor, 1/2” with 0.8µm pixels.
|Galaxy S20 Ultra||Galaxy S20+||Galaxy S20|
|Main camera||108MP S5KHM1||12MP IMX555, 1.8µm||12MP IMX555, 1.8µm|
|Zoom camera||48MP IMX586, 1/2", 0.8µm||64MP S5KGW2||64MP S5KGW2|
|Ultra wide camera||44MP S5KGH1, 1/2.65", 0.7µm||12MP S5K2LA||12MP S5K2LA|
|Selfie camera||10MP IMX375, 1/3.2", 1.22µm||10MP IMX375, 1/3.2", 1.22µm||10MP IMX375, 1/3.2", 1.22µm|
The Samsung Galaxy S20+ camera modules were detailed a few days ago as part of the copious leaks supplied by Max Winebach. They are identical to the Galaxy S20 setup, save for the addition of a 3D ToF sensor – an IMX516 (the Ultra model will use a new IMX518 ToF sensor).
The main camera is a Sony IMX555, a 12MP shooter, which is said to have large 1.8µm pixels (no pixel binning here). Then there’s the S5KGW2 sensor for the telephoto camera. There are no official details about this one, but it’s related to the 64MP ISOCELL GW1 sensor.
Finally, the ultrawide camera uses an S5K2LA sensor with 12MP resolution. Again, there are no official details about this one, but the S5K2L family of sensors ranges from 1.25µm to 1.4µm pixels, depending on the exact model.
All three Samsung Galaxy S20 models use a Sony IMX374 sensor for the selfie camera – that’s a 10MP sensor with 1.22µm pixels and Dual Pixel AF. If that sounds familiar, it’s the exact same module that the S10 and Note10 phones used.

The only difference is the cameras. Even then, the cameras on the non-Ultra models are more than decent. Get a Sony RX100 if cameras are so important to you.
