The Galaxy S10 camera may have 'Artistic Live Focus' mode, hinting at computational photography chops
Samsung will be leveraging its Live Focus camera option dramatically, or, should we say, artistically in the Galaxy S10, to an extent worthy of its rumored multi-lens camera set on the back.

It has filed an 'Artistic Live Focus' trademark with the European patent office, unearthed by the folks from Galaxy Club, and if history is any indications, those naming schemes usually become actual new features in future Samsung devices.

Live focus is Samsung's own take on Portrait Mode and creates a bokeh blur in the background for emphasizing the subject front and center. It can be readjusted post-shot, so we don't know how more artistic can I get, but the Galaxy S10 and S10+ are shaping up to be beasts in the camera department, so anything is possible when you add computational photography as well.

They are aligning their products, naming scheme, pricing and feats to apple. Trying very hard and they will fail harder next year. Losing market share in low, mid and high.
