South Korean smartphone giant, Samsung is now said to add triple rear cameras on the Galaxy S10, which is slated to release in Q1 2019. KBI Securities analyst Kim Dong-won stated that Samsung's planning to add three cameras to the back of its tenth iteration of Galaxy S flagship smartphone. Samsung is going with this decision because the brand is looking to compete with the likes of Apple and Huawei in the triple camera game. Huawei already launched a triple camera smartphone in the form of Huawei P20 Pro, while Apple is heavily rumoured to include triple cameras on one of its iPhone releasing that could be announced in September 2018.
Having said that, these are the analyst's claims and Samsung is no way involved in this matter. However, a recent report from South Korea also added that Samsung is exploring triple camera setup options for the Galaxy S10 along with the in-display fingerprint scanning technology. Also, it's expected that more manufacturers will join the triple camera smartphone train in the coming quarters and the list could be led by Apple itself.
We're still months away from the Samsung Galaxy S10 unveiling, which as per the tradition will happen during the MWC 2019 or going by rumours, it could be even unveiled at the CES 2019 event itself. That said, take this news with a pinch of salt as we've considerable amount of time for the Galaxy S10 release.
In other news, the third sensor on the Galaxy S10 is claimed to be a 3D sensor, something that's no brand has used until now. The Galaxy S10 will surely pack high-end hardware and Samsung wants to pack a punch in terms of specifications, especially considering the poor Galaxy S9 duo performance this year.
Huawei is the first manufacturer to add three cameras on the rear side of a smartphone. The Chinese brand, on the Huawei P20 Pro, added triple camera setup comprising of a 40MP primary RBG sensor, 20MP Monochrome sensor and an 8MP telephoto sensor. While the device received praise from every corner of the world, Samsung might try its own luck by adding triple cameras on the Galaxy S10. Before the Galaxy S10, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be released, but that's expected to be a minor upgrade over the Galaxy Note 8.
