Samsung Galaxy S10 Has Triple Camera System With Ultra-Wide Lens: S10

Samsung has announced the Galaxy S10 range, further expanding the photographic capability of the handsets. 


There are 4 different models to the Galaxy S10 family:

  • Samsung Galaxy S10e -  Slightly smaller than others in the range with a 5.8-inch screen, featuring a dual camera & OIS (wide 12mp dual pixel AF f/1.5-2.4 77 degrees FOV / ultra wide 16mp f/2.2 123 degrees field of view) and 0.5 x optical zoom capability. It's the entry-level model.
  • Samsung Galaxy S10 - 6.1-inch screen, Quad HD+, featuring a triple rear camera (telephoto 12mp f/2.4, 45-degree angle of view, wide-angle 12mp dual pixel AF f/1.5-2.4 OIS 77 degree angle of view, Ultra-wide 16mp FF, f/2.2 123 degrees angle of view) featuring 0.5-2x optical zoom.
  • Samsung Galaxy S10+ - Slightly larger 6.4-inch screen featuring Quad HD+ capability at 522ppi, and the same camera setup as the S10.
  • Samsung Galaxy S10 5G - Has 5G capability, extra large 6.7 inch Quad HD+ screen and a quadruple camera system (the same as the S10 and S10+ but additionally featuring a 3D hQVGA depth sensor.


All the models have 'hole punch' front cameras, which are integrated into the screen making a neater design without the need for a notch. They're all 10-megapixel dual-pixel AF f/1.9, with an 80-degree field of view. The S10+ has an RGB depth sensor and the S10 5G has a 3D hQVGA depth sensor. 

We've already seen a glimpse of triple and quad camera technology from Samsung, in their A9 smartphone released late in 2018, which has 4 rear lenses and a decent looking selfie camera. Rumours have been circulating since summer last year about the capability of the S10, and there's also strong evidence to suggest that Samsung want to take their camera game even further with plans recently patented for a camera in a Galaxy Note S-Pen - it'll be interesting to see how this technology progresses.

Galaxy S10’s Dynamic AMOLED display also includes the first-ever in-display Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner that reads the 3D contours of your physical thumbprint – not a 2D image of it – for improved anti-spoofing.
