Is Samsung Going Camera Crazy Too?

Is Samsung Going Camera Crazy Too?

When Apple unveiled the iPhone 11-series at an event in September, it was hard to ignore the array of lenses on the built-in camera. With multi-lens cameras becoming more and more popular, people were wondering if this was the trend for smartphones to come. Perhaps, the most anticipated smartphone of 2020 is the next Galaxy handset from Samsung. According to the rumor mills, it will be called the Galaxy S20 instead of the S11 which was originally rumored.

Over the weekend, supposed leaked images of the upcoming smartphone hit the Internet, and indeed, it appears to have a very complex camera. The photos depict a series of 6 circles, shown above, forming the imaging array. It appears to have 4 lenses, a flash, and a light sensor of some type. Reportedly, the phone will be unveiled publicly at an event on February 11th. Is this the trend for mobile cameras going forward?
