Samsung's 'ultra-premium' Galaxy S10 model tipped to feature five cameras... in total12
But even though the company has no plans to challenge Nokia’s rumored insanity and release a flagship handset with five shooters mounted on its back, the “ultra-premium” Galaxy S10 variant could feature a grand total of five cameras.
A fresh news report from Korea, based on the usual unnamed “industry” sources, echoes previous speculation of three S10 models, anticipating a “standard” version with three cameras (two rear, one front), a “premium” phone with four cameras (three rear, one front), and the aforementioned ultra-premium edition carrying a triple rear shooter system and a dual selfie-producing setup.
That’s a whole lot of imaging sensors, and Samsung may need some external help to manufacture associated modules. In recent years, the world’s largest smartphone vendor has relied pretty much exclusively on its Samsung Electro-Mechanics subsidiary for the task, but this time, a “medium-sized” contractor is likely to enter the supply equation.
Unfortunately, as far as camera specifications are concerned, we have nothing new to report. Just because the “ultra-premium” Samsung Galaxy S10 is coming with a large number of snappers in tow it doesn’t mean said cameras will actually be the world’s most competent. But clearly, Apple and Huawei have something to be concerned about.
