What if Samsung attaches six cameras to the back of the Galaxy S30? July 15, 2020 – Posted in: Smartphone news


While most of the media mainly focus on the Galaxy Note 20 and its variants, which are due to be launched in August, Tom’s Guide published an article about the Galaxy S30 this week. There is also a Samsung patent that was discovered by the Dutch website LetsGoDigital and which suggests that Samsung is considering introducing a smartphone with six cameras on the back.

Currently, most smartphones, even in the high-end segment, have no more than 4 cameras on the back. Exceptions are the Nokia 9 Pureview and the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 with 5 cameras on the back. With the introduction of a device with six cameras on the back, Samsung was again able to cause a sensation, as well as the introduction of the Galaxy S20 Ultra with a main camera of 108 megapixels and a x100 zoom.

But what would this set of six cameras look like?

Based on the documents he discovered, LetsGoDigital magazine created the following rendering, which shows that the six cameras can be placed on a rectangular module that is aligned horizontally.

It is unclear what advantages six cameras on the back of a smartphone could have. However, according to Tom’s Guide, there is a main camera and five wide-angle cameras. These cameras may be able to move using a pan mechanism. And the changes in position would allow the device to create photo effects that are not possible with current smartphones.

However, since all of this information does not come from an official Samsung version, it has to be taken into account with some caution. In addition, the fact that Samsung created this patent does not mean that it will be used in one of its next models. In any case, Samsung is expected to be creative on the Galaxy S30 in this area, as the photo is now one of the most important aspects of a cell phone. In addition, the S30 will be a competitor of the future iPhone 12, which should sell very well thanks to 5G.
