'Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development, we're introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation, ' said Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh to mark the launch. The primary camera is a 24MP RGB sensor, and it is coupled with a 10MP telephoto camera that is able to provide 2x lossless zoom function for taking images without losing quality.
The third sensor is the main camera with 24-megapixel resolution and f/1.7 aperture.
Next up is an 8MP, 120 degree wide angle lens allowing you to get more into each shot, followed by a 5MP depth-sensing camera which collects data used in Samsung's Live Focus background blur mode. Leaks have suggested that the four camera lenses will be placed in a vertical arrangement with a LED flash below them. A 5-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture that adds depth to the captured images follows the main sensor. Additionally it comes with 6 GB of RAM and is running Android 8.0 out of the box.
