Samsung Galaxy S10 reportedly getting triple camera, but no 5G
A report from ET News (in Korean) leaked the camera setup for the Samsung Galaxy S10, revealing a three-camera setup.
2019 marks 10 years since Samsung’s first Galaxy phone, the Samsung i7500, which also signaled the brand’s entry into the Android smartphone market.
To celebrate the anniversary, Samsung will doubtless want to release a feature-packed Galaxy S10 to impress fans. So far, reports have suggested a triple-cam setup, two selfie cameras and 5G support.
The three-camera rumors seem to be true, but DJ Koh, president of the South Korean tech giant’s mobile business told journalists at the Galaxy Note 9 launch that Galaxy S10 won’t be the firm’s first 5G phone, another model will take that honor.
Samsung is still determined to be the world’s first vendor to launch a foldable smartphone, though.
The company is rumored to be announcing three Galaxy S10 variants, two featuring the same screen size, of which only two will get the three-camera setup.
According to the report, the main S10+ camera will have a 16 megapixel regular snapper, a 13 megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens, and a third cam equipped with a wide-angle lens and a 12 megapixel sensor.
Furthermore, rumors suggest Samsung wants to be the first to introduce a triple setup to a midrange smartphone, through its Galaxy A series, presumably with the A9 (2019).
GSM Arena noted that if the South Korean tech giant goes down that road, it will likely unveil the phone with a 32 megapixel + 8 megapixel + 5 megapixel configuration.
No details are known on when Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S10, Galaxy A (2019) or even the foldable phone, dubbed Galaxy X. JB
