Samsung used to always have the best Android camera in their phones but this year they have been smashed in the DxOMark scores by several phones, most notably the Huawei P10 Pro which has three rear cameras.
Overnight Korean website, The Bell, has reported that the Galaxy S10 will arrive with three rear cameras and two front facing cameras. They are stating that their source has said that the third rear camera is a wide-angled camera while the other two cameras on the rear are reported to be the same as in the Galaxy S9+.
The prototype in testing apparently includes a 12MP wide-angled camera, a 12MP telephoto camera and a 16MP ultra-wide-angled camera. Samsung’s current wide-angled camera has a 77 degree field of view while the new ultra-wide-angled camera will have a 120 degree field of view.
The dual front-facing camera is obviously there for better portrait mode images and will apparently include a 16MP and an 8MP camera.
Just as for the Galaxy S9 series there will be different camera setups in different models for the Galaxy S10. One will have the five cameras, one will have 3 on the rear and one on the front and a third having a single camera on the front and a dual camera setup on the back.
Of course these are all rumours and we are at least six months still from release so all of these could and possibly will change from now until then. If Samsung do include five cameras to the Galaxy S10 party you would hope they do so to improve the quality of the images and not just for marketing purposes.
What do you think? Do you think five cameras is the answer? Remember the Pixel 2 is a great camera smartphone and only has two.
