Samsung has scheduled an event in Malaysia on October 11, where the company is expected to launch a new smartphone under its Galaxy lineup. Samsung promises that at the “4x fun” Galaxy event, it’ll announce a device that “brings more ways to express yourself than ever before.”
The event will also be live-streamed on Samsung’s website. The event invite says, “Samsung’s newest Galaxy device is bringing more ways to express yourself than ever before. Capture the fun with Samsung as the company celebrates the launch of the new device with A Galaxy Event on October 11, 2018.”
While it’s not revealed what the “4x fun” in the event invite means but if we are to believe leakster Ice Universe, who has been reliable when it comes to Samsung-related leaks, then the South Korean giant is all set to launch a phone with four cameras. Ince Universe hinted this development earlier this month.
And yes, all the four cameras will be placed on the back side, clarifies the leakster upon questioning about the placement of the cameras. Overall, the smartphone could have five or more cameras if we take into account the front-facing camera as well.
However, these are just rumors at this point in time and there’s no substantial proof of this quad-camera smartphone yet. There are speculations suggests that the phone could be a part of Galaxy A-series but the A-lineup usually gets introduced ahead of the S-series flagship launch.
On the other hand, Samsung CEO has revealed that the company is planning to provide details on its first foldable smartphone before the end of the year. So, this could also be related to that but it’s highly unlikely that the event is related to the foldable smartphone.
To know for sure what the company has up its sleeve for “4x fun” Galaxy launch, we’ll have to wait till October 11th.
