“Here’s a look at some early camera samples shot using the new Galaxy S10+”
Samsung’s latest flagship smartphones are finally out, and despite the fact that the Galaxy Fold managed to steal its thunder, the S10 range looks pretty loaded. Camera capabilities are a huge part of the refresh, and among the trip, the Galaxy S10+ (first impressions) obviously seems the most packed in this department. Packing a total of five cameras (three at the back and two at front), the Galaxy S10+ promises quite a bit in terms of photography prowess. While it’s a tad early to say whether it has what it takes to take the crown of the best smartphone camera, let’s take a look at a few images shot using the phone.

Before we get there however, we’ll give you a recap of the camera specs and a brief overview of the features offered by the default camera app. The triple camera array at the rear comprises a 12MP sensor with dual aperture (f/1.5 and f/2.4) and OIS, along with a 12MP telephoto f/2.4 sensor that also boasts OIS and enables 2X optical zoom. Then there’s an ultra-wide 16MP fixed focus f/2.2 sensor with a 123-degree view. At the front, you get a 10MP f/1.9 sensor aided by an 8-meg fixed focus f/2.2 depth sensor. Both the rear and front camera setups can shoot 4K video, and you even get the option of shooting video in HDR10+ from the rear cameras. Thanks to the Neural Processing Unit, the Scene Optimizer feature can recognise various scenes and optimise settings for best possible output, while another feature called Shot Suggestion offers composition recommendations.
The camera app is quite packed too. The default photo mode lets you switch between the telephoto and wide shooting options, and other modes on offer include Live focus (bokeh), Pro, Food, and Super Slow Motion video, among others. Bixby Vision, which is Samsung’s take on the Google Lens, is also there, and so is AR Emoji. colour filters and effects, and a customisable beauty mode are also included. Jump into the camera settings where you’ll find other goodies like Flaw Detection and Motion Photos. Suffice it to say, there are a smorgasbord of options available for you to explore your creative side. Let’s see what the cameras on the Galaxy S10+ can really do…
While the shots embedded above should give you an idea of how well the new Samsung Galaxy S10+ can shoot, we’ll have a more in-depth review and assessment of the phone’s photography prowess out very soon. Watch this space.
