Samsung announces mysterious October 11 Galaxy event

iPhone XS vs Samsung Galaxy S9: How the features compare

On Thursday 11 October, Samsung will reveal a new Galaxy device (singular) which offers "4x fun", headlines the invite graphic.

As Samsung gets ready to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its Galaxy S-series expectedly by launching the Galaxy S10 in 2019, rumours surrounding the upcoming smartphone are pouring in from all corners.

Samsung did just give its latest smartwatch the Galaxy moniker, so it may be a separate part of the business that's also being absorbed into the G name.

Samsung has announced that it will unveil a new Galaxy phone at an event on October 11. Overall, the smartphone could have five or more cameras if we take into account the front-facing camera as well.

The event will be livestreamed on Samsung's website, and while we can't say with any certainty at this point, it sure does sound like we're going to be introduced to a smartphone with four cameras. But it seems pretty likely it'll be camera-related.

The 512GB model is reportedly the most affected by the high demand.

According to previous reports, the Samsung Galaxy S10's triple rear camera setup will bear 12-megapixel lens with f/1.5 to f/2.4 variable aperture, a 16-megapixel super-wide-angle lens (123 degrees) at f/1.9 aperture, and a zoom lens with a 13-megapixel sensor and f/2.4 aperture. All the current flagships, including the Galaxy Note 9, come with 2X optical zoom and offering 4X zoom could actually mean a significant bump in the camera capabilities.
