Details of the camera configuration were revealed today by the Korean media and it is safe to say, the Galaxy S10 will be a camera beast.
According to the source, the Galaxy S10 will have a combination of a 12MP wide-angle camera, a 16MP super wide-angle sensor, and a 13MP telephoto camera for up to at least 3x zoom. The Galaxy S9+ and Galaxy Note9 which both have dual cameras use a wide-angle + telephoto combination.
Unlike this year where the Galaxy S9 and S9+ differ with respect to their number of cameras, the Galaxy S10 and S10+ won’t follow that pattern. Both will have triple rear cameras while the S10 Lite which is said to have a flat display will have just two.
There is good news for those who prefer Samsung’s A-series. It has been reported that Samsung will also equip them with triple rear cameras and they may even get it first since they usually launch earlier than the S-series. Do note that the triple-camera feature will be for the high-end A-series. One of the A-series smartphones is said to sport a 32MP + 8MP + 5MP configuration.
Samsung is not the only Korean company working on a triple camera phone. The upcoming LG V40 is said to also have but a device recently spotted online which seems to be the V40 based on a number of reasons has dual cameras.
