At least one of the three planned versions of the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be equipped with a triple camera. However, the three modules do not only differ from each other in terms of the required viewing angle, as a new leak now reveals.
The Galaxy S10 will not be the first Samsung smartphone with a triple camera, this privilege came recently to the Galaxy A7 (2018). But unlike the mid-range smartphone, the upcoming top-of-the-line model will have cameras with three different focal lengths: a lens has a standard viewing angle of 78 degrees, a telephoto lens offers a narrower 45-degree viewing angle and the ultra wide angle one with 123 degrees. These and other values are shown in a table, which is the Samsung Fan Blog Sammobile.
Thereafter, the three cameras of the internally under the code name “Beyond” led smartphones continue to have different resolutions and pixel sizes, the lenses from each other different apertures. The standard lens, like the Galaxy S9, has a variable aperture that can be set to f / 1.5 or f / 2.4. With 12 megapixels, the resolution is lower than the other modules, but the individual pixels with 1.4 microns are the largest.
The ultra wide-angle camera has a f / 1.9 aperture and resolves photos with 16 megapixels, the telephoto camera has a small f / 2.4 aperture and a 13-megapixel resolution. The pixel size of the last two Galaxy S10 cameras is given as 1.0 μm. Only the standard and telephoto cameras have optical image stabilization and autofocus, the wide-angle camera has only a fixed focus.
Three Galaxy S10 – only one with three cameras?
So far it is not known whether each of the suspected three versions of the Galaxy S10 will receive this triple camera – this is contradictory information from Korea. According to current knowledge, the best camera equipment is reserved for the Plus model with 6.4-inch display, while the 5.8- and 6.1-inch variants each with only a dual camera – consisting of standard and Wide-angle modules – should receive.
Samsung could already present the Galaxy S10 at the CES in the beginning of January, or only at the end of February at the Mobile World Congress.
