Samsung's 'ultra-premium' Galaxy S10 model tipped to feature five cameras... in total
For a company that prides itself on its groundbreaking mobile technologies, forward-thinking spirit, and risk-taking courage, Samsung was rather late to embrace both dual rear-facing and dual front-facing cameras on Galaxy smartphones.

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.

Well it's safe to say Apple will reach the $2000 price tag faster than Samsung

Even if they make it 10 it’s still ni match to iphone realistic colors. No wonder why iphone is the number 1 in camera used all over the world. Android cameras are beautiplus and saturated.

only cause dumb people will spend anything for a apple logo, sales doesn't mean the best. If that was the case then McDonald's makes the best burger in the world and we know how silly that sounds right.

Did you know that Samsung was actually the first phone maker ever to have 2 cameras on the back of a phone, long before android or iOS phones came around. So actually they did it first, pioneeing from the very beginning
