Samsung may offer three Galaxy S10 models, one with a triple-camera setup

Samsung may offer three Galaxy S10 models, one with a triple-camera setup
Samsung Galaxy S9+

Following reports just a few days ago that stated Samsung would offer the Galaxy S10 series in two sizes, a new report from ET News reconfirms this and also reveals some interesting details about the camera setup.

Partially coinciding with the most recent information, the new report confirms that the smaller Galaxy S10 variant will sport a 5.8-inch display. However, when it comes to the larger offering, it’s now claimed that a 6.2-inch panel will be present, instead of the 6.3-inch display that was previously mentioned. In addition to this, it appears Samsung has some big camera upgrades in the works too, with plans for a total of three models, which are codenamed “Beyond 0,” “Beyond 1,” and “Beyond 2.”

Starting off with the first model, this variant will ship with the smaller 5.8-inch panel although, interestingly, it won't be a dual-edge display. Instead, the company will reportedly stick to a more traditional flat display. Furthermore, in terms of the camera setup, a single sensor on the rear is said to be present, thus acting as a cheaper successor to this year’s Galaxy S9. Presently, it’s unclear if any major upgrades will be featured, although the lens will presumably retain its variable aperture nature. Moving on to “Beyond 1,” this model is expected to include a dual-edge 5.8-inch Infinity Display and, unlike the first offering, it will boast a dual-camera setup, much like this year’s Galaxy S9+. Lastly, completing the lineup will be a model that boasts a bigger 6.2-inch display and apparently a significant camera upgrade. See, just like Huawei’s P20 Pro that was announced back at MWC 2018, the larger Galaxy S10 device dubbed “Beyond 2” is expected to feature a new triple-camera setup on the rear, possibly comprised of a main variable aperture lens alongside a telephoto one and a new wide-angle sensor.

Considering the Galaxy Note 9 is yet to launch, it’s a bit too early to know whether or not this report is accurate. Nevertheless, if it is, it will mark only the second time Samsung chooses to launch three Galaxy S flagship models in the same year, with the company previously doing this back in 2015 with the launch of the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, and S6 Edge+.

Keep in mind that the S6 Edge Plus was an European exclusive and replaced the Note5.

It wasn't a European exclusive. Europe just didn't get the Note 5.

American carriers sold the Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus side by side in stores. Not sure where you're getting this European exclusive idea from.

So 3 models, two with multi camera setups and one with a single camera. Hmmmmm where have we heard of such before.

What? Nowhere. Don't be ridiculous. There isn't a single brand that i can think of which has released a series with 3 different models, where they had 1, 2 and 3 cameras, respectively. Furthermore, no other smartphone brand in the world has variable aperture cameras, so these smartphones will be completely unique within the smartphone world, as the Galaxy S9/S9+ is.

So now they're copying HUAWEI eh?

If that is to copy Huawei by simply using 3 cameras, then Apple copied Essential when they equipped their iPhone X with a notch. It doesn't matter, everyone copies everyone these days. I also won't really call this copying, as there has been a natural evolution of adding more cameras to smartphones. Samsung already implicitly has 3 cameras on the Galaxy S9+ as it can shift between 2 apertures on a single camera, which you would usually need 2 cameras to do.

SamsungNewbie be like "Samsung did triple camera first, they all copy Samsung." Jokes apart, When you already have one of the best cameras in the market, why would you experiment with a triple camera setup?

Why you ask? What are one of the things DSLR's have that phones are lacking? Different lens options. So adding an extra (say, wide angle) lens is like equipping a different lens. This gives more possibilities and perspectives for photography. I'd love to have a wide angled lens on my S9+.

I wish the phones could work between 13-100mm.

They wouldn't be this compact then.

"When you already have one of the best cameras in the market, why would you experiment with a triple camera setup?" This might be a foreign concept to you as an iphone fanboy, but other brands actually like to move forward, instead of remaining stale for several years (Iphone 6-iPhone 8). So Samsung definitely has one of the best cameras on the market with the Galaxy S9, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't make the next one even better. Why stop there? Samsung is always moving forward.

Remember when you voted X in the blind camera comparison, kid? Sit down. No one ever complained about iPhone's camera not being up to the mark. "Other brands actually like to move forward" - by copying Apple.

What does some blind camera comparison have to do with this? I can easily find camera comparions where the iPhone doesn't win, if you want to cherry pick evidence that supports your fanboyism, but it literally has nothing to do with anything i said. Additionally, i voted for the Galaxy S9+ the most, and Huawei P20 Pro second. "No one ever complained about iPhone's camera not being up to the mark." No one has even complained about the Galaxy S/Note cameras not being up to the mark either then. There are definitely people complaining about both cameras, so it's a bit fanboyish for you to say that those people are "no one". Stop being such a delusional Apple fanboy. "Other brands actually like to move forward" - by copying Apple." Really? These days Apple copies Android a lot more than the other way around. Apple copied the notch from an Android phone, the Essential phone and the Sharp phone. Furthermore, Samsung moved forward in the camera department by adding variable aperture, which was an innovation, as no one else has ever done that. Furthermore, Samsung wants to add a 3rd camera, which is once again something that Apple hasn't done either. Everyone copies everyone, get over it you deluded fanboy.

You already know I lack reading capabilities why would you type all this s**t? This ain't your school exam, kid you ain't getting grades for these long paragraphs. Mentioning Samsung/Galaxy a billion times and complaining about fanboyism is some next level s**t. Essential, Sharp came out in Aug. No other OEM released a phone with a notch during Aug-Nov. Then iPhone X comes out and everyone starts releasing a phone with notch. How would you explain that? "Furthermore, Samsung moved forward in the camera department by adding variable aperture, which was an innovation, as no one else has ever done that. Furthermore, Samsung wants to add a 3rd camera, which is once again something that Apple hasn't done either." That did not change the results, S9/S9+ camera is still behind the X. And you voted for the X, kid.

It's kinda ironic how you're calling everyone a kid when you act more immature than most people on here. Aside from that, in my opinion, both cameras on the X and S9+ are amazing, but they have their own weakness. Also, won't common sense make you think that manufacturers would start developing phones similar in design to the PH-1 and Aquos S2 prior to the unveiling of the iPhone X?

Everyone? Don't make s**t up. He's a school going kid. "Also, won't common sense make you think that manufacturers would start developing phones similar in design to the PH-1 and Aquos S2 prior to the unveiling of the iPhone X?" Alright how would you explain antenna lines on the 6/6s, horizontal dual camera on the 7 plus, removal of headphone jack that other OEMs copied? It's time for you to come out of the cave you're living in.

HTC with the Antenna lines, the Moto Z with the headphone jack removal, and the G5 had a horizontal dual camera set up before the 7 came out. Also, the fact that you're using so much profanity and try to divert attention from yourself to everyone else, who I did not mention, validates my statement about your excessive amount of immaturity. If you want people to take you more seriously, you should stop using it.

Yeah, this response clearly shows you didn't actually care to read and comprehend what i wrote. I had to make it a longer comment, as i had to explain it to you, instead of simply saying that you're wrong, which gets you nowhere in a discussion. Since you didn't really care to address most of my comment, but merely went on and on about the blind test, this "discussion" isn't really worth the effort. Lastly, i already told you that i voted for the Galaxy S9 on most pictures in the blind test, and the Huawei P20 Pro the second most, so i didn't really vote for the iPhone X. You can look at the article to see my comment i made back, where i say which ones i voted for personally.

Stupid. Gives a compact phone with proper specs. Plenty of phablets out there to chose from. . 130mm tall, 68mm wide, 10mm thick to support 3500mah battery, 5.2" display. And don't forget the removable battery (I know I know, never gonna happen again).

13cm is the XZ1c. This size is impossible to pack 3500mAh.

I'll settle for 3000. XZ1c is great size. But screen to body ratio is terrible.

Why not 1 phone which has all which will reduce the making cost too.

Please don't, Sammy. Just stick with one S model & the Note model & that's it.

I really like the idea of offering the consumer a larger choice, as people have vastly different preferences, so it's a great thing to have more options to find a Galaxy S smartphone that fits your needs. I'm kind of against the concept of Samsung created a flat display Galaxy S, as people can buy their cheaper models, if they want a design as basic as a flat display. The Galaxy S line is for premium devices and therefore a premium design. I have a feeling Samsung won't produce a flat screen Galaxy S. The only way i see it happening is if they do it to make the smartphone cheaper for consumers.

There is nothing premium about a useless curved screen.
