Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra’s Camera Glass is Shattering for Some Users

If you’re the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, you may want to start being extra careful with the smartphone — some users are reporting that the glass covering the large 108MP module is unexpectedly shattering on them for no apparent reason.

Several reports have been posted to places like Samsung’s community forums, Reddit, and Twitter by owners who were surprised to discover broken glass on their camera modules, with damage ranging from hairline cracks to things that look almost like bullet holes.

Reports seem to stretch back to early March, shortly after the phone was launched. A common thread between many of the reports seems to be confusion regarding how the damage happened — owners don’t recall ever dropping or bumping their phones (often reportedly in protective cases), they simply noticed the damaged glass one day after pulling the phone from their pockets.

Here are some photos of the damage people are discovering:

reports that Samsung is considering this type of damage to be cosmetic and is thus charging $100 to $400 for repairs (depending on if you have Samsung Premium Care).

“Samsung hasn’t acknowledged this as an issue on the forum,” SamMobile writes. “Many of the users are now throwing around theories of this being a design flaw with some even calling on the company for a recall. It doesn’t appear to be a very widespread issue, though, so there may be another explanation here.”

We’ll update this post if/when Samsung issues an official statement regarding this matter.

Canon EOS R6 Announcement Delayed Until July: Report

Canon EOS R6 Announcement Delayed Until July: Report

Canon’s much-rumored and anticipated EOS R6—the mirrorless variant of the 6D line-up of DSLRs—was originally expected in May, but it sounds like we’ll have to wait a little while longer for this full-frame mirrorless camera to officially arrive.

multiple sources are saying that Canon has been forced to delay the announcement of the EOS R6 until July, pushing shipping for the camera until Q3 of 2020. Assuming this remains the case, the camera should still arrive in plenty of time for the 2020 Holiday season, but it’s disappointing news for Canon mirrorless fans all the same.

It seems the rumored EOS R6 will, more or less, come to replace the current EOS R. And while it is expected to use a lower resolution image sensor, in many ways, it will be the camera the EOS R should have been. Here are the anticipated specs, which were originally leaked in March:

  • 20MP full-frame sensor
  • IBIS
  • 12fps max with the mechanical shutter
  • 20fps max with the electronic shutter
  • 4K/60p and 1080/120p video capability
  • Dual card slots

Compared to the EOS R5, sources say the R6 will use a lower-resolution EVF, lack the top-down screen, and represent a drop in overall build quality. These trade-offs will hopefully also mean a very attainable price tag.

For stills shooters who want buy into the RF ecosystem but aren’t happy with what the EOS R and EOS RP have to offer—and aren’t interested in the eye-watering video specs Canon is building into the EOS R5—it sounds like we’ll be waiting a bit longer for another option to hit the market. Then again, we all kind of expected that, didn’t we?
