Samsung released the September 2022 security update for the Galaxy Note 20 series devices a few days ago. The changelog didn’t specify what changes the Galaxy Note 20 update brings, but it does include a notable feature (telephoto activated in Pro mode) for a better photography experience.
The Korean community in charge of the camera department has already confirmed that the Expert RAW camera app will be available for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra this month. Prior to support for the app, Samsung enabled the functionality that lets Galaxy Note 20 Ultra users shoot with the telephoto sensor in Pro mode.
Pro Mode is a dedicated section of the Samsung Camera app, which allows you to capture moments using a few settings such as exposure, ISO, shutter speed, focus, and white balance. Until now, Pro Mode only supported the primary camera and ultrawide camera on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
It looks like with the September 2022 update, Samsung has quietly added the ability to have a telephoto lens as well as Pro mode on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Notably, Camera-in-Charge also confirmed the existence of the feature and said that it appeared because the Note 20 Ultra is ready for expert RAW.
The Galaxy Note 20 is the last Note flagship lineup released by Samsung in 2020. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra comes with a massive 108MP primary (wide) camera, which is capable of PDAF, laser autofocus, and optical image stabilization as well as 12MP Ultra. Wide shooter.
Furthermore, it uses a 12MP periscope telephoto sensor, which gives you 5x optical zoom, 50x hybrid zoom with PDAF, and optical image stabilization. With the September 2022 update, you’ll be able to use the telephoto camera in Pro mode for more advanced image-capturing experiences.
