We’re only a few weeks away from Samsung’s Unpacked Event in San Francisco, California, which means that the South Korean tech giant is about to introduce its latest top-tier Galaxy smartphone to the world. The company has kept mum about the upgraded features of the Samsung Galaxy S series, but the rumors are rife that the Galaxy S10 will highlight big improvements on its camera department. However, these hardware upgrades come with a price, and the device is expected to be a little bit more expensive.
More Powerful Front Camera With Pinhole Design And ‘Anti-Shake’ Feature
Per the latest scoop, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will sport an all-new pinhole design for the front camera, which would help capture images with high-level definition. Aside from a different camera setup, the Galaxy S10 front shooter is rumored to get an advanced optical image stabilization, which is comparable to the “anti-shake” feature of GoPro cameras. This camera technology aims to keep the subject of photos and video footage on focus, even if there is a sudden jolt when the user snaps for a picture.
While there are no confirmed reports yet regarding the Samsung Galaxy S10’s camera specs, tech enthusiasts are kind of expecting the handset to highlight an impressive 4K video shooting capability, and the more impressive thing is that this feature will be present not only in the S10 rear-mounted camera, but also in the front cam as well.
AI-Enabled Front Camera And Powerful Triple-Lens Rear Cameras
Apparently, it is not only the optical image stabilization and 4K video that the Samsung Galaxy S10’s front camera will be boasting. Other sources also claim that the upcoming device will get an AI-enabled scene and object recognition, which is similar to the AI features of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
When it comes to the rear cameras, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is rumored to highlight a triple-lens setup, which would outclass the current dual-lens camera system of the Galaxy S9 unit. The three-lens setup will consist of a 12MP wide-angle lens, a 16MP super-wide lens, and a 13MP telephoto lens. Interestingly, Galaxy S10’s supposed archrival this year, the 2019 iPhone XR successor, is reportedly having the same triple-lens cameras.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Could Be More Expensive Due To Expected Upgrades
Now, here comes the bad news regarding the Galaxy S10. While we are thrilled to see all the rumored features of the S9 successor, it should be expected that the price of the smartphone will be quite costly. It is rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S10 variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage will already cost 899 euros, or roughly USD $1,030. This already costs as much as an auto transport service. Meanwhile, the 8GB RAM and 512GB internal storage model will amount to 1,149 euros, or USD $1,317.
