New report says there’s no quad-camera setup on Galaxy S10 Plus

Plenty of leaks, rumors, and reports have attempted to shed a light on what the different Galaxy S10 variants will offer. A new report from the folks over at Phone Arena is supporting some of those rumors while making one important distinction. The Galaxy S10+ will apparently have a triple-camera setup at the back like the Galaxy S10 (the middle variant, with the lowest one called the Galaxy S10 Lite), not a quad-camera setup

No quad camera for regular or Plus model?

Now, renders of the Galaxy S10+ leaked by OnLeaks had shown four rear cameras and two front cameras on the device, and there have been rumors of Samsung developing a Galaxy S10 model with a total of six cameras. But it’s certainly possible the six cameras will only be offered on the fourth variant, a 5G-enabled one that will launch later on in markets like the US and South Korea. And, after all, a three-camera setup would still give us zoom, Live Focus, and ultra-wide capabilities, so it’s not like four rear cameras are a necessity for making a good phone.

Then again, the Galaxy S10 rumor landscape is constantly shifting. Things may still change even as we get ever closer to the phone’s February launch. In fact, only earlier today we saw a leak that showed Galaxy S10 screen protectors without any cutout for the front cameras. It doesn’t exactly mean we’ll see Samsung surprising us all by equipping all three Galaxy S10 models with displays without notches or holes, but it does make a solid argument for why nothing is confirmed or certain at this point.

The headphone jack isn’t going anywhere… for now

Thankfully, things like the presence of a headphone jack on all models and the number of cameras on the Galaxy S10 Lite (two at the back, one at the front) are supported in the new report, so there is no reason to lose all hope just yet. The Galaxy S10 will mark the tenth anniversary of Samsung’s primary iPhone competitor, and we can expect it to offer enough to impress consumers. Or should we say it has to impress consumers, or there might not be anything to stop the Korean giant’s smartphone sales from going further downhill.
