What Samsung plans is to complement a (heavily upgraded) primary 12-megapixel camera with a 13-megapixel telephoto lens offering 3x optical zoom, and a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens with a 123-degree field of view (FOV). This latter feature has been used by LG in a dual camera array instead of an optical zoom, but no company has managed to include all three options. As such it has the potential to give Samsung a major differentiator.
But this do-it-all approach comes with problems.
ET News says sourcing the additional modules, and a total of five per phone, is providing a challenge. Consequently, Samsung is likely to limit this functionality to just one Galaxy S10 model, the top of the range Galaxy S10+ which could top $1,000. A limited edition 5G-equipped Galaxy S10+ will be even more expensive.
That said, it is clear Samsung is looking to pull out all the stops for its 10th-anniversary and the core Galaxy S10 features read like a wishlist fans have been requesting for years.
