Samsung plans to release four new Galaxy S devices next year. Among them, according to the latest rumours, is a smartphone that is not only huge, but also gets six camera lenses. A record for smartphones, because currently five camera lenses is the maximum.
That’s what the Wall Street Journal reports today based on various sources within the South Korean company. The largest device, called Beyond X, is said to have a 6.7-inch screen. By way of comparison, the Galaxy S9 Plus has a 6.2-inch screen and the Galaxy Note 9 has a 6.4-inch screen.
More cameras than ever
The extra large screen is not the only new feature that Samsung wants to introduce. The sources state that the device also gets more camera lenses than ever before. There are six: two on the front and four on the back. In doing so, Samsung is following the trend and competing with other smartphone manufacturers.
Various companies, including Samsung and Huawei, are experimenting with smartphones with multiple camera sensors. At first, a double camera was the trend, but the Galaxy A9, for example, already has five. This is obviously to his liking, because the South Korean smartphone manufacturer is now considering building in as many as six.
In addition to that large screen and large number of cameras, the Beyond X also seems to be the first Samsung phone with 5G technology. The first 5G networks are expected to go online next year. These would be 10 to 100 times faster than the 4G networks at present.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Samsung is considering releasing three more Galaxy phones. These include three smaller Galaxy S10 models, including devices with 5.8-inch to 6.4-inch screens. They have between three and five cameras according to the newspaper. According to the rumours, the company still has doubts as to whether the devices are also equipped with wireless charging.
Next year, Samsung also wants to release the foldable phone that was unveiled earlier this month. The Galaxy Flex quite possibly to those four Galaxy phones of early next year.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
