Samsung is pretty close to launch the next-gen Note device. Although there hasn’t been a ton of leaks about the device so far, some new information has started to show up. According to a new leak, we have some idea of what Samsung is planning for the cameras on the display.
Leaker Ice Universe tweeted on Thursday that the new Note 10 will come with a three-stage variable aperture system. And that’s a step-up from what we have seen from Samsung in the past. The company obviously introduced its first variable aperture system on the Galaxy S9, where users could switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4.
But with the new Galaxy Note 10, Samsung is apparently adding a new stage in-between: f/1.8. That means users will be able to switch between f/1.5, f/1.9, and f/2.4 when taking pictures on the device.
Samsung China engineers said that the Note10 camera will use a three-stage variable aperture: F1.5/F1.8/F2.4

On the Galaxy S9, the two-stage variable aperture system allowed for better low light pictures since it was able to mechanically control the amount of light that goes through to the camera sensor. And the system should work similarly on the Note 10 unless Samsung builds a new software feature that takes better advantage of all the three different apertures.
