Its 40-megapixel 1/2.65-inch Quad-Bayer sensor can output 10-megapixel images with 2×2 pixel binning, and its wide-angle mode can output images with an equivalent focal length of 25mm, when the camera detects more than two faces. , it will automatically switch to wide-angle mode. But by default, the S20 Ultra takes pictures in crop mode, and when taking a single-person selfie, the same sensor outputs a lower-resolution 6.5-megapixel image at a longer 32mm-equivalent focal length.
