Samsung is gearing up for launching its next flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in the market at a launch event on August 9. However, rumors have already started surfacing on the internet about the potential features that the company will include in its flagship for 2019, the Samsung Galaxy S10. This is not the first time where we have heard about a triple camera setup on the S10 but the new report reveals more details about the setup. According to a report by a website AllAboutSamsung, it seems like the company is planning to include a triple-camera setup on the Galaxy S10. This comes right after the reports indicating that the device may come in three different sizes.

According to the report, Samsung is planning to add the 12-megapixel lens with a Dual aperture as the primary sensor on the S10 along with a “super wide angle” lens with 123-degree of field of view, 16-megapixel resolution and f/1.9 aperture as the second lens and a 13-megapixel sensor with f/2.4 aperture as the third lens. The company is expected to pack this setup in its largest device with the possibility of adding the “super wide-angle” lens in its mid-sized S10 instead of the usual telephoto lens. The report pointed out that the wide-angle lens will not come with autofocus or image stabilization leaving those duties to the primary camera.

This decision is not going to please users who like to use the optical zoom to zoom in and take their pictures as it is really taking away a feature from the mid-sized Galaxy S10. Optical zoom has gradually turned out to be an important feature that most people have come to expect from flagship smartphones in 2018.

One thing to note here is that the report added that Samsung has not finalized this setup and things may change by the time the launch date arrives. As with any other rumor, Samsung has not issued any official statement regarding the reports about triple camera setup. Though, it is interesting to see what Samsung is planning to include in its tenth device for the Galaxy S series.
