The third camera sensor is an ultra-wide sensor with 12MP lens that can provide Super Steady videos. Finally, a 3D TOF sensor is added alongside the LED flash.
At market camera of Note 10 Plus has been among the top best available camera. And with the introduction of Galaxy S20 Ultra that tittle will shift toward it.
