Galaxy S10 triple-camera system to be introduced with its own model

Samsung is expected to pull out all the stops for the Galaxy S10 due early next year as it’s going to be the company’s 10th anniversary flagship. The reports so far have suggested that its processor will be an absolute ripper, it may have an in-display fingerprint sensor, a more impressive screen-to-body ratio among other advancements.

Some reports have even suggested that Samsung may introduce a triple-camera system with the Galaxy S10 which is something we have never seen before on a Samsung smartphone. A new report from South Korea reiterates this possibility, adding that the company may actually release three different variants of the Galaxy S10.

Galaxy S10 triple-camera system

It was previously revealed that Samsung refers to the next flagship internally as “Beyond.” Today’s report claims that Samsung is preparing three variants of the Galaxy S10 codenamed Beyond 0, Beyond 1 and Beyond 2.

Beyond 0 is said to be an “entry-level” model with a 5.8-inch flat display panel. It’s unclear if it’s going to have a different power package as well given that it has been billed as the cheapest model in the lineup. Beyond 1 is also said to feature a 5.8-inch display but it may be a curved panel much like how it is on the Galaxy S9. Beyond 2 will be the Galaxy S9+’s successor with its 6.2-inch curved display. It’s this particular model that’s said to feature Samsung’s triple-camera system.

If the information contained in the report is accurate, it would be the first time that Samsung offers three different variants of its flagship smartphone. It only started offering two models back in 2015 with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge and then changed the nomenclature with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in 2017.

No technical details about Samsung’s triple-camera system are mentioned in this report. Samsung is expected to respond to Huawei with its own solution after the Chinese company launched its triple-camera touring P20 Pro recently. Huawei claims that the setup offers “master level” photography features with its 40-megapixel primary sensor + 8-megapixel secondary sensor backed up by a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor. The setup has largely received positive reviews.

What the addition of a triple-camera system will mean for the top-of-the-line Galaxy S10 model’s price remains to be seen. It may very well go past the $1,000 barrier and it remains to be seen if the handset will offer enough to customers to justify the purchase.

S10 & S10+display sizes has been upgraded to 6.0in & 6.44in respectively according to The Bell..

Probably gonna buy Beyond 1… According to Ice Universe Beyond 0, besides being flat, has a single camera, while beyond 1, besides having edges (most likely), has dual camera… I don’t really care about a bigger phone or triple camera enough to want to get beyond 2 (probably gonna be expensive anyway) but next year I’m going all out so I can buy a good phone that can last 4 years and more. I don’t want the barebones phone (Beyond 0), neither do I want to break the bank (Beyond 2), so beyond 1 will be perfect for me. Also,… Read more »

Samsung ditched the flat variant of their phone because the demand was much bigger with the curved variant, I can’t see why they will release a Beyond 0 flat variant for the S10.

I have a totally great idea, let’s put four cameras in the Galaxy 11, and five in the Galaxy 12! They all have krappy quality, but hey, the more the merrier! Let’s make Samsung great again! Honestly no mobile phone camera (or camera array can beat a decent standalone camera (even a good idiot cam is better). My Canon A510 I bought a long time ago, which has not so many MP, can do a better job than most phones these days – simply due to the optics inside. It’s just another marketing gag to make compulsory spenders to upgrade,… Read more »

No, not really, smartphone cameras take amazing shots provided that the conditions are right – like most cameras! unless you invest heavily in a DSLR.
I’ve yet to find a camera that can do 4K at 60fps and 720p at 960fps. it comes down to what you get for your money. I would very much like to spend ~£800 on a camera that I can pay for monthly, but you don’t get camera contracts. so I’m happy using my S9+ because it takes some really amazing photos and does a lot more.

Okay. Imagine the time it would take for each variant to receive the first security update 🤣🤣

3 variants for each processor (exynos & SD).
We’ll have 6 different models crying for updates.

And let’s not forget about dual-sim, Korean, Chinese, US unlocked etc. variants (they all have Exynos chipset, I know, but they have always received updates much later than the European Exynos variant). Counting all these variants (at least 6) and multiplying by 3 (number of S10 models) , we’d have at the very least 18 variants of the S10 series in total.
Edit: Now that I think about it, why not add all 4 variants of US locked phones (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T Mobile) and also Canadian if I’m not wrong (Rogers and Bell)… We should have 11*3=33 variants.

Dual SIM models are the exact same as their parent models (for example G960F and G960F/DS), so they are treated as the same phone.

And people who don’t like giant phones get screwed over once again. I’d hope Samsung would stop that stupidity.

Also… If the three models are true, why not at least compensate the screwing with the camera by making the first one a 5″ phone instead? Doesn’t make much sense to release three enormous phones, two of them with the sole difference of being a normal display or an edge display…

5.5 inch screen isn’t considered large anymore – I don’t think there have been “new” 5 inch phones out in a while. remember when 25MB memory was considered loads… times and technology move on. and yeah, the phones aren’t actually getting bigger, we’ve seen it loads now, same footprint, bigger display.

correct, i am happy S8 user, sammy screwed as i will never choose S9 as have less specs than S9+
this policy will remain with S10, then its high prices are a big issue, whatever specs will offer to device will never justify the purchase, other brands will always cost less with better specs(a 1000 euros for S10 will make it unbuyable, S10+ even more)

Why 3 models? This is crazy. They should keep the triple camera for all models! But sadly it may not be the case and hope at least minimum 2 cameras and at least 6gb ram.

They’ll either go 5x optical zoom with the three lenses, or go one extra wide angle, one normal and one 2 or 3x optical zoom. 1080p @ 960fps is expected too
