Samsung Galaxy C10 to be the first Samsung phone with a dual camera setup?
Earlier this month, we told you that there was speculation that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would NOT be the first Samsung branded phone to carry a dual camera setup. Instead, the buzz around the water cooler was that a new Samsung handset in the Galaxy C line would be first across the finish line with the dual snappers, which would be vertically positioned on back. Today, that phone's name was finally revealed in a pair of tweets disseminated this morning.

According to a source out of China, the first Samsung handset to carry a dual camera setup will be the Samsung Galaxy C10. The model number of the device is SM-C9150. And powering this handset will be the new Snapdragon 660 SoC, which is supposed to be unveiled by Qualcomm on May 9th. That happens to be this coming Tuesday.

And how about this boys and girls! The Galaxy C10 will reportedly include its very own dedicated Bixby button, just like the button found on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+.The same source who furnished this information also tweeted a sketch of the rear of the Galaxy C10 a few days ago. The sketch failed to show a fingerprint scanner on back, which means that it is either embedded in the home button like on other Samsung models, or embedded in the screen. Since the technology to do the latter has been problematic, the home button seems the best place for the fingerprint reader at this point.

I check that leaker twitter (@mmddj_china), and it's just full of overwatch fanart, 772 followers, self proclaimed "Famous leaker in China", badly photoshopped phone, and his tweet rarely get re-tweeted (probably once in every 20 posts) is this leaker even legit? :-/

Ah! C10, eh...? I hope its not 2.5 times stronger than "C4"...! Anyhow, seems like Samsung is about to unveil a camera focused smartphone, a successor of the ill-fated Galaxy S4 Zoom... With not "THAT" much 'zoom' capabilities, of course... The Zoom was basically a digital camera on steroids... Anyhow, It must be interesting... Oh well, eh? G'Day!

Even Samsung's single camera can easily f**k down all your dual camera in the market... So I think there is no need of dual camera until Samsung's single camera can outperform all dual camera setups in market. In future when samsung will use a dual camera setup it will make sense.... Not just something foolish iToy7+

It'll be funny to see your reaction if samsung release a future flagship phone with dual camera lens like iPhone 7 plus - one normal lens and another with zoom lens.

He is right even the galaxy s6 takes better photos than the iPhone 7 plus.

my v20 is high end and the UWA is very nice and useful. were talking about the best of the best already but that s**tty fingerprint scanner placement and no 2nd camera. shame. their gear is good but shame. and dont say shet about the v20 cause its a beast of a phone. search for pocketnow video on youtube: LG V20 After the Buzz: Even monsters need some love shet like swappable batteries and ir are AMAZING features. extremely useful. the audio features are killer the manual video controls are kick ASZ!

Lol it's simply because ur sammy couldn't produce a new sensor , that's why it's using the same sensor as S7. hahahah

"Even Samsung's single camera can easily f**k down all your dual camera in the market..." Let me enlighten you a bit. The concept of a dual camera is not to increase the quality of the optics of a phone. Rather it is to assist the primary camera in performing various tasks for example, better colour representation ( huawei's implementation), better field of view ( LG's implementation ), better portraits ( Apple's implementation ) etc... So pls do tell me, does the s8's camera outperform the g6's in terms of field of view? How about the iPhone 7 plus in terms of quality of portraits? Consider yourself enlightened.

Quality of portraits yes, field of view no. Quality is subjective and I feel blur ability of the s6/7/8 has been on par with the 7+

Dxo mark the best phone camera on the market is the pixel followed by the galaxy s7 they are both not duel camera smart phones. The duel camera is a bit of a gimmick if it was so great why is there no duel camera phone at number one

bravo buddy well said. and the g6 and v20 and iphone are all top notch today. theres going to be slight increases of IQ but usefulness like an ultra wide angle of the v20 is fantastic

The Samsung C7's screen is 5.7 inches and C9 is 6 inches. This is going to be massive.

I visited a Air Force base this weekend and I got some great shots with the my S8+, the background blur effect works really well but I can say there were sometimes that I wished I had LG'S setup because there wasn't enough room to get some of the fighter planes in the entire shot. If I had dual cameras I would have been able to switch to the wide angle lens and capture the whole plane with no issues...
