The invite doesn t mention anything else, but the accompanying text does say that Samsung s newest Galaxy device is bringing more fun ways to express yourself than ever before.
Being a soft launch, the event will be live-streamed on Samsung s mobile press, galaxy, and news websites. Interesting as the invite is, there s absolutely no information about whether this supposed quad-camera smartphone will be launched as part of Samsung s existing smartphone line-ups, or debut under a new series altogether.
If Samsung is indeed planning such a device, there are a quite a few ways those four cameras could be arranged.

The most-obvious could be two cameras each at the front and the back, an arrangement that even some budget smartphones have these days. The alternative could be a single selfie snapper and a triple camera system at the back, such as the one used by Huawei s P20 Pro.
