Samsung is launching a 4-camera smartphone on October 11

Samsung is launching a 4-camera smartphone on October 11

It is highly unlikely that Samsung will be announcing a new flagship at this time of the year.

While the display size is increased over Note 8's 6.3-inch, the good news is that it doesn't feel any bigger in hand. This new variant of this smartphone is launched to gain a stronghold in the country's mid-range smartphone market. What is clear though, is that the highlight of the device is going to be the camera.

The news from Samsung comes days after Apple unveiled a new lineup of iPhones focusing on the premium smartphone segment at prices starting between US$749 and US$1,099 for U.S. customers. This basically covers all the permutations associated with 4 cameras.

As per usual, we're expecting some pretty meaty updates to the design, specs, and overall performance of the handsets.

They followed up earlier today by retweeting another tweet saying there will be four-camera phones later this year, originally tweeted in July, with the addition of "Now, do you know?". This translates into the phone offering 3x optical zoom capabilities.

It is a well-known fact that the Slow Motion video recording feature is a trending feature and can be found on most of the flagship devices.

A report from Korean news site ETNews says that Samsung's best Galaxy S10 version will come with as many as five cameras, including three on the back and two on the front.

The race to get ahead with camera setups has been the most crucial for manufacturers. Another phone rumoured to bring a 4x zoom lens in the Nokia 9 and its insane penta-lens setup, although HMD is yet to confirm the existence of this phone just yet. Gearing up for another launch, the chaebol has now posted an invite about "A Galaxy Event", scheduled for October 11, 2018.
