The Samsung Galaxy S10 rumors that the smartphone will come with triple-lens cameras have heated up, with a new report that allegedly provides more information on the upcoming feature.
It has been said that there will be three Galaxy S10 models, just like the 2018 iPhone. Meanwhile, there were also reports that Apple will launch an iPhone with a triple-lens camera in 2019, following the Galaxy S10 that is expected to be unveiled early next year.
Galaxy S10 Triple-Lens Camera: Here's What We Know So Far
It will all start with the Galaxy S10, with the triple-lens camera to be found in two of its three models. The two triple-lens Galaxy S10 models will feature a 12 MP wide-angle camera, a 13 MP telephoto camera, and a 16 MP super wide-angle camera, which will feature the widest field of view that has ever been included in a Galaxy S smartphone.
The third Galaxy S10 model, meanwhile, is said to be the basic version of the smartphone. It will only have two rear cameras, with reports not revealing which lenses it will feature. Most likely, it will be the 16 MP super wide-angle lens that will be missing in the third Galaxy S10 version.
The triple-lens camera will be one of the main selling points of the Galaxy S10. However, the feature will not be exclusive to Samsung's next flagship smartphone after the recently unveiled Galaxy Note 9.
In addition to the Galaxy S10, Samsung will include triple-lens cameras in its Galaxy A series of smartphones. The Galaxy S10 triple-lens cameras will be of higher quality, but the first Samsung smartphone to receive the feature may be a new Galaxy A model that will be announced as soon as December.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Rumors
Samsung may announce the Galaxy S10 as soon as January next year at CES 2019, partly to help boost its struggling smartphone sales and partly to give way to the Galaxy X, the company's rumored foldable smartphone.
Another circulating Galaxy S10 rumor is that Samsung will finally roll out its in-display fingerprint sensor technology in the smartphone. The feature, which was initially slated for the Galaxy Note 9, will use ultrasonic sensors to maintain a high level of accuracy.
The arrival of the in-display fingerprint sensor to the Galaxy S10 also reportedly means the removal of the iris scanner and the addition of 3D face recognition.
