Samsung Galaxy S10+ Leak Suggests Rear Triple-Camera System And More
The point-and-shoot camera market has been decimated by smartphones, and the image quality and capabilities of flagship devices has increased with each new generation. The Samsung Galaxy S9+ saw the adoption of two cameras on the rear along with a variable aperture lens. The upcoming Galaxy S10+ could take things even further with an increase in the number of onboard cameras.
A report from South Korean publication The Bell states that prototype Galaxy S10+ smartphones running around in Samsung's labs have a triple-camera setup on the back. It's reported that there will be a dual lens setup similar to what's on the current Galaxy S9+ (12MP wide-angle, 12MP telephoto) plus an additional 16MP ultra-wide-angle sensor. The third camera is said to have a lens with a 120-degree field of view.
But the rear camera module isn't the only upgrade to the cameras on the Galaxy S10+. The report also says that there will be dual selfie cameras up front comprised of a 16MP primary sensor and an 8MP sensor for bokeh effects.
Our previous reporting revealed that the Galaxy S10 family will be available in three variants codenamed Beyond 0, Beyond 1 and Beyond 2. Beyond 0 will be a new, low-cost entry-level offering for the Galaxy S10 family, while the Beyond 1 and Beyond 2 will replace what we know today as the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
At this point, it seems as though the triple-camera setup and dual selfie cameras will be reserved for the Galaxy S10+. Other features on deck for the Galaxy S10 family include Qualcomm's [unannounced] Snapdragon 855 processor or the Samsung Exynos 9820, up to 8GB of RAM, available Fingerprint on Display technology and a 2Gbps LTE modem.
