Samsung might have been a bit late when they’ve finally joined the dual rear camera hype but the South Korean smartphone giant is reported to be stepping up the mobile camera game as rumors have it that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10+ will have five cameras — with three lenses on the rear and two on the front.
According to Korean publication The Bell, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10+ will be the first in the Galaxy S series to come with a dual rear camera setup, and the first Samsung device to be equipped with an ultra-wide angle camera. The other two cameras of the Samsung Galaxy S10+ is reported to be similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S9+.
With that being said, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ will have three rear cameras comprised of one 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, one 12-megapixel telephoto camera, and one 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera.
The ultra-wide-angle camera of the Samsung Galaxy S10+ will most likely have a 120-degree lens, since it has to be bigger than the wide-angle camera of the Samsung Galaxy S9+ which has an angle of view of 77 degrees.
In terms of its front cameras, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ will carry another first, as it is again where Samsung will intro the dual front camera setup for the Galaxy S lineup. The front cameras for the Samsung Galaxy S10+ are expected to be better in terms of performance and megapixel count than those of the Samsung Galaxy A8 which has a combination of 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras.
