Background: The Galaxy S10 is still far away from being released, the phone is expected to arrive in the first quarter of next year, quite probably during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, at the end of February, a year after the arrival of the Galaxy S9 series. This publication has been right with many rumors it brought to the internet which means that the triple-camera setup it estimated the Galaxy S10 would come with might be correct as well. The Galaxy S10's NPU could "handle all the current Vision Processing Unit (VPU) chip's tasks as well", notes the report.

To date, the Huawei P20 Pro comes to mind each time triple-camera setups are mentioned. The Galaxy A9 (2018) also supports Bixby, Samsung Pay and Samsung Health apps as seen on other high-end Galaxy devices. According to rumors, the smartphone will be released in three versions: S10, S10 + and S10 Lite.

Besides that, the same publication suggests that the Galaxy S10 will be similar to the Galaxy S9 regarding their 12-MP variable aperture main sensor, but it will also have an additional 13-MP lens that will presumably tout telephoto capabilities. Unless Samsung makes a last minute change, none of them will have four cameras.

Regarding the budget model, it will feature only one camera, and the standard Galaxy S10 will be equipped with a double camera setup.

But let's be honest, the Galaxy A9 is all about that quadruple camera. This more or less confirms a post that Ice Universe shared back in August, guessing those very same colors.

Speaking about the camera system during the Galaxy A9 launch event, Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh said: "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". Other specifications remain unknown for now.

If you are living in the U.S. and is looking to get the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9, you should be happy to learn that besides the standard colors that have been announced, the USA market will also be getting two new colors.
