Having triple cameras is still acceptable. When Huawei introduced the tech with the P20 Pro, it was wholly accepted by the general public. Four cameras? Maybe it’s overdoing it. Maybe.

Samsung’s latest is the first smartphone in the world to feature four rear cameras — a 24MP (f/1.7 AF), 10MP Telephoto (f/2.4, AF, 2X optical zoom), 8MP Ultra Wide (f/2.4, 120-degrees), and a 5MP Depth (f/2.2).

The setup gives greater flexibility and creativity in different shooting scenarios — a catchall solution for most conditions.
