Dutch technology blogger LetsGoDigital has just unveiled Samsung’s new “Bright Night Sensor” logo, hinting that the galaxy S11 series flagship new smartphone is expected to feature an enhanced night shot in February. It has previously been reported that the Galaxy S11 is expected to feature a 108-megapixel main and five-fold optical zoom lens, as well as features such as Space Zoom, Single Take and Video Spin.

As the name suggests, the Bright Night Sensor is a camera sensor that features night shots. Unlike its previous focus on software solutions, Samsung this time chose its own image sensor hardware.
On November 28, 2019, Samsung Electronics filed a trademark application for “Bright Night Sensor” with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), in category 9, covering product lines such as cameras/cameras/smart devices/smart sms/optical sensors.
In fact, Samsung has been using the name “Bright Night” for some time, such as night shooting mode (software enhancement) for Galaxy S10 and Note 10 models. But according to Samsung’s description, the new sensors are not only available for taking photos, but also support video.
In recent years, manufacturers have paid more and more attention to cameras in smartphones, leading to waterloo in the compact digital camera market. Nowadays, the cameras on mobile phones are getting stronger and fewer are going out with digital cameras.
Even so, in some areas of the profession, “bottom-up crushed people” cameras still have a useful role, such as the ability to capture more detail at night (simply put the photo looks brighter).
But the combination of hardware and software, led by giants such as Google, Apple and Samsung, has been able to impress us. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S11 is expected to surprise consumers even more.
