Samsung usually equips its mid-range phones with three or four cameras. Two of those cameras are primary and ultrawide, while the others include depth sensors and macro cameras. Starting next year, the South Korean firm's mid-range phones may have one less camera.
According to a report from The Elec, Samsung has decided to remove depth sensing camera sensors from its mid-range phones. The report claims that the Galaxy A24, Galaxy A34, and the Galaxy A54 will have three cameras each: main, ultrawide, and macro. The Galaxy A24 could have a 50MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 5MP macro camera.
The Galaxy A34 reportedly features a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 5MP macro camera. Weirdly, the report claims that the Galaxy A54 will have a 50MP primary camera, a 5MP ultrawide, and a 5MP macro camera. We think that the ultrawide camera's resolution is a typo because downgrading a costlier device's camera (compared to Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A34) seems silly.
It is claimed that Samsung's move is to focus on the remaining cameras and reduce costs associated with the depth camera. The South Korean firm has already started offering OIS in its mid-range phones, so the company is moving in the right direction. We hope that Samsung will one day bring telephoto cameras to its higher mid-range phones.
