Samsung may have finalized the Galaxy S10 camera specs

There has been a lot of interest about the Galaxy S10 camera specs lately. Samsung is expected to pull out all the stops for the upcoming 10th Anniversary flagship. It may launch as many as four different models of the Galaxy S10 all of which will have some differences in the camera department.

A report from South Korea claims that Samsung has locked down its suppliers for the circuit boards it will use for the Galaxy S10’s cameras. The inference being that this decision has been made after the Galaxy S10 camera specs were finalized.

Galaxy S10 camera specs possibly finalized by Samsung

Many of you will be well aware that Samsung was initially expected to launch three variants of the Galaxy S10. The entry-level model may feature a dual rear and single front camera. The two premium options, likely successors of the Galaxy S9/S9+, may feature a dual front and dual/triple rear camera, respectively.

Samsung is also reportedly working on another Galaxy S10 model which will be nothing short of an absolute beast. It may feature a 6.7-inch display and a grand total of six cameras – four at the back and two up front. This model will also come with support for 5G networks.

The report mentions that Samsung will only be producing around 2 million units of this model. 5G networks will only go live in a couple of countries next year. There’s no need for Samsung to produce a lot of units when widespread network support just isn’t there.

It’s clear that the cameras will be major differentiating factors for the entire lineup. We can expect Samsung to introduce some new software-based camera features as well. The Galaxy S10 isn’t due to arrive until early next year. Samsung is expected to launch it in February. The 5G variant may not be released until March or until such time that 5G networks go live in markets like South Korea.

I expect at least 16MP+, with real variable aperture, 1.4+ micron, 5x zoom or more and significant improvements in low light.

Well, I see no “specs” other than how many cameras they’ll potentially have on the device. A very lacking article I must say.

Glad to hear the lite model will have dual camera as it would be an even bigger flop like the iPhone xr as it only had 1 camera on the back.

If it has 6gb ram with 64 GB internal paired with the dual camera at a competitive price then this could be a dark horse

That’s true and probably I’m going to get the lite version.

“It’s clear that the cameras will be major differentiating factors for the entire lineup.”

Which is the continuation of a stupid strategy which CLEARLY doesn’t work.
Has Samsung ever wondered why their phones continuously perform worse than they predecessors? Hmm…what is is that Samsung has been doing and doing worse and worse every year? Exactly. They keep separating more and more the variants of the same phone. Why should people who prefer more reasonably sized phones be punished with less features?
Has the failure of their “Mini” line not made that clear for them?

You are correct. S8 and S8+ was the last phones with the same specs no matter if you choose S8 or S8+.

But you need to understand that the in small body it is problem to pack more technology. So they needed to make this step.

6gb ram and 128gb memory would have taken the same space in the s9. They just cheaper out with 4gb ram to save cost but some how charged much more than the s8

The “space” excuse would be acceptable if the phone was the size of an S7. But the S8 and S9 are much taller and yet the battery size on the S9 is the same as the S7. As such, Samsung isn’t using the extra space for the battery. Or anything else, really. So they removed the dual camera, for example, just to cheapen the phone.
And people see that.

Just hope for the regular S10 being the same size physically as an s9 or 8 without the top and bottom chin. This will make it physically same size as an iPhone 8 which will be amazing but with all screen.

Just hope they will give it 8gb ram and 128 FB internal as standard. As it is a 2019 flagship
