Even though Samsung is done with almost all of its big 2018 launches, the year isn’t over yet. Gearing up for another launch, the chaebol has now posted an invite about ‘A Galaxy Event’, scheduled for October 11, 2018. The invite promises ‘4x fun’, hinting that Samsung could be planning to launch a Galaxy smartphone with four cameras. It’s very much possible, as Samsung’s alleged quad-camera smartphone has been rumored to have been in the works for quite a while.
Last month, a leakster going by the name Ice Universe on Twitter had tweeted that Samsung could soon launch a smartphone with four cameras.

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.
