Samsung’s Galaxy S10 is slowly becoming less of a mystery as the days go by and more rumors about it emerge. The latest news is that the Plus variant of the smartphone will be grabbing a triple-camera setup.
This has been hinted at before, but German site AllAboutSamsung has managed to dig up specific details about the module. It seems Samsung will bless the Beyond 0 and Beyond 1 with a dual-lens system and the Beyond 2 with a triple-lens one. The first two are codenames for the entry-level and standard Galaxy S10, while the last is the internal name for the Galaxy S10+.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Camera Specs
The Beyond 0 and Beyond 1 might carry an identical 12MP + 16MP setup at the back. The former is apparently the main sensor and comes with a variable f/1.5 – f/2.4 aperture. The latter is a 123-degree wide-angle snapper with an f/1.9 aperture.
The Beyond 2 may go down a different path with a 12MP + 16MP + 13MP rig. The specifics of the first pair are the same as the other Galaxy S10 models. The 13MP one could turn out to be a dedicated zoom camera with an f/2.4 aperture.
As per the report, the Galaxy S10+’ primary lens will be in the middle. It’ll be flanked by the zoom lens to the left and wide-angle lens to the right. Unfortunately, it appears that the 16MP wide-angle shooter on all 3 variants will go without OIS and autofocus.
It’s impossible to predict how this will affect photography performance right now, but it should be something to watch out for once the Galaxy S10 hits availability. The phone will probably come out in February at the MWC 2019 if Samsung sticks to its traditional launch strategy.
