Samsung Galaxy S10+ Expected to Have Triple-Lens Rear Camera and Dual-Lens Front Camera

While the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ were only released nearly four months ago, rumors have already surfaced about the Galaxy S10 lineup.

Galaxy S9

Korean website The Bell today reported that Samsung plans to release a trio of new Galaxy S smartphones next year, including the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and a lower-priced version of the Galaxy S10. The latter device is expected to be the first-ever entry-level Galaxy S model, not a Galaxy A or Galaxy J model.

If that sounds familiar, it is because Apple is widely rumored to introduce a trio of new iPhones this September, including a second-generation iPhone X, a larger 6.5-inch version dubbed the iPhone X Plus, and a lower-priced 6.1-inch iPhone, with some but not all features of the iPhone X.

The report adds that the Galaxy S10+ will feature a triple-lens rear camera system and a dual-lens front camera system. The rear system is said to include the same 12-megapixel wide-angle lens and 12-megapixel telephoto lens as the Galaxy S9+, in addition to an all-new 16-megapixel 120º ultra-wide-angle lens.

Again, if that sounds familiar, it is because Apple is rumored to introduce at least one new iPhone with a triple-lens rear camera in 2019.

The standard-sized Galaxy S10 is expected to have a single-lens front camera and a triple-lens rear camera, while the entry-level Galaxy S10 is said to sport a single-lens front camera and a dual-lens rear camera.

Last week, The Bell reported that the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, and possibly 3D facial recognition, similar to Face ID on the iPhone X. These would likely be the only biometric authentication options, as Samsung reportedly plans to exclude iris scanning on the devices.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ at Mobile World Congress next February and release the smartphones in March.

Why are people crying about this? It's clear cameras are probably the number 1 feature in a smartphone these days with all the pictures being posted on various social media to facilitate the narcissist's lifestyle image.

I made the switch from an iPhone 6S (last one with a headphone jack) to a Galaxy S9 as soon as the S9 came out and I've been super happy with the decision.

The reasons why I made the switch:
- the pricing of the iPhone X is ridiculous in Europe
- the iPhone X doesn't have a headphone jack (I use a headset at work and need to switch between my laptop and phone, so 3.5mm jack is a must)
- Apple says that it supports USB type-c, but all the iPhones still come with a lightning connector. Now I use my Macbook Pro type-c charger to charge both my phone and my laptop, no need to carry a type-c -> lightning cable

The only thing I'm worried about is Samsung's support for future OS's, as they have taken their sweet time to upgrade older phones to a new Android version (such as 7 Nougat -> 8 Oreo).
