Following in the footsteps of the upcoming Google Pixel 3 series, a new report from Korean publication The Bell suggests Samsung’s Galaxy S10+ will also employ a new dual-camera system up front.

Now, although it’s unclear which exact sensors will be applied in the new setup, the layout looks set to be inspired by the setup present on the Galaxy A8 and A8+. Ultimately, this means that significant improvements to the bokeh effect are to be expected alongside the traditional jump in overall image quality. It is worth, noting, however, that this dual-camera offering will be exclusive to the Galaxy S10+, with the other two rumored models settling for a more tradition single-lens offering, much like this year’s Galaxy S9 line.

In addition to the selfie cameras, today’s report also reconfirms recent information that claimed the largest model would boast a triple-camera layout on the rear. This setup will include a main variable aperture sensor, much like this year’s flagships, alongside a super wide-angle camera and a telephoto lens. Much like the dual setup up front, though, the rear triple-camera layout will be exclusive to the Galaxy S10+. This means that those who purchase either of the other two smartphones will have to make do without a telephoto lens. 

Aside from the camera configurations, both the regular Galaxy S10 and S10+ also look set to ship with new in-display fingerprint sensors, removing the need for any sensors on the rear. When it comes to the smaller model, however, Samsung is rumored to be including a side-mounted scanner that could potentially be integrated into the power key.

Samsung learned that being conservative will only lead to low sales ... Great they are making everything they have in the SX ...

Two cameras in front can also give you better depth sensing as well, especially for something like AR.

S and Note never had decent selfies.. Always beauty effect ( even when it is off), overexposed. Bad video stabilization.

Based on/compared to what? Maybe on the Note 3. Note 4's front facing camera vs the Note 3 is night & day. Note 7's ffc was even better. Yes, the iPhone X ffc is amazing, but that was just last year. Don't say never or always unless you can back up your statement.

A8 2018 has better selfie, all Sony with 13MP front are better, Pixel 2 is better, OP6 is better.. Even the ridiculous low resolution / crap sensor selfie of XZ2 does better Just LG has weaker selfies than S / Note ..

You're naming all newer phones. Any Samsung with a ffc prior to 2016 was best than all those that you mentioned.

My concern will always be about the rear camera because.........I have testicles. Selfies are taken primarily by women. I know what I look like; I don't need to take pics. But when I'm on vacation I want great pictures since our phones are our photo albums now.
