Bit by bit, we're seeing important details surface for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10 lineup. After live images and dummies of the gadgets made rounds yesterday, today we've got a detailed report for the trio's alleged camera specifications. This report doesn't have a single source; instead, it's a collection of discussions people have had related to the gadgets in China. Take a look below for more details.
Fresh Report Claims That Both The Galaxy S10 And Galaxy S10 Plus Will Feature Three Rear Cameras And Support 4K Recording At 60fps
If we take render leaks of the Galaxy S10e by Winfuture's Roland Quandt as authentic, then Samsung will introduce a new addition to the Galaxy S lineup later this month in California. The Galaxy S10e will feature an Infinity-O display panel and a side mounted fingerprint sensor. The gadget's display will be an LCD panel, and the smartphone's price will range in between $749-$849.
A new report from China now claims that the entry-level Galaxy S10 will come with the Note 9's rear camera setup. In comparison, the S10 and s10+ will feature three rear cameras each and record 4K video at 60fps. Samsung is also expected to market these two devices as handy substitutes for action cameras such as a GoPro. To facilitate this, the Korean tech giant will equip the gadgets with three camera lenses. The currently reported specifications for these lenses are:
|Aperture:||F1.5 & 2.4; variable||F1.9||F2.4|
Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus' Super-Wide Angle Camera Sensor Does Not Support Optical Image Stabilization Or Auto Focus:
In addition to these specifications, the report also claims that only the Telephoto and Standard rear camera lens found on the S10 and S10 Plus will support OIS and Auto Focus. Samsung will take full advantage of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 redesign, and rely instead on the processor to compute calculations related to photography through algorithms.
These will enable the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus to shoot FHD with a 0.4s time lapse, and allow the pair to record 4K video at 60 frames per second. Additionally, to support the devices' use as action cameras, the smartphones will also be able to reduce shaky video electronically. This feature should mimic the stabilization offered by a gimbal but without the accessory itself.
Moving towards the front camera, today's report confirms that only the S10 Plus will feature a dual front camera setup. The resolution for this setup will be 10MP+8MP. On the other hand, the standard Galaxy S10 will either feature an 8MP or 10MP front camera.
Galaxy s10e Live Images Show 3.05mm Thick Bezels For The Smartphone, A Punch-Hole Front Camera Sensor And A Thick Chin
Just as Apple is forced to make design compromises on the iPhone XR, Samsung too has its fair share of design nightmares on the Galaxy S10e. We've also got four live images for the smartphone today. One of these shows the S10e to the left of a 6.1" iPhone XR. The images do not reveal any new information for the S10e's design but serve only to confirm its existence if they're authentic.
At the top right you can see that a single camera sensor is present, and the S10e appears more compact than the iPhone XR. According to previous reports, the Galaxy S10e will feature a 5.8" display, making it the perfect size for a smartphone. Samsung is also expected to introduce blue-light filters on its displays, and the upcoming smartphones will rely on AI to manage battery power efficiently.
