The 5 camera module is expected to be equipped with a 108-megapixel primary shooter alongside a special Bright Night sensor.

The tech giant filed a trademark with EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) for the ‘Bright Night Sensor’. The name of this new sensor is similar to the ‘bright night shot mode’ found on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series.

Smartphone manufacturers are pushing the boundaries for compact photography each year with their handset offerings. In recent times, smartphones perform quite well even in low light, with devices capturing more and more details and sharpness after each passing year. Apple’s iPhone 11 series, with great low light camera performance, is one such example. Hence, it is quite possible that Samsung is planning on innovating on the same aspect. Manufacturers have been providing software solutions like night mode for the past couple of years now, so a hardware inclusion is a welcomed new addition.
