The Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus come with a great triple camera setup where one of the lenses is an optically stabilised 12-megapixel main sensor with a dual aperture that can switch between f/1.5 for night shots and f/2.4 for the day. The second sensor is an ultra-wide 16-megapixel f/2.2 sensor that lets you capture more field of view and lastly a stabilised 12-megapixel telephoto sensor.
However, the Galaxy S10/S10 Plus comes with some nifty features such as a “Live Focus” mode which lets users take portrait images. You can adjust the blur after taking images and even add some awesome effects such as spin, colour point and others.
The Galaxy S10 camera also has other intelligent features that let users optimise the scene and get on-screen guides to help users line up great shots. These features make it easier for casual users to take professional level looking images (or so they say).
However, at the launch event today, Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President of Samsung India said that many of these camera features were developed by engineers in India at Samsung's Bangalore R&D institute. “Over 500 engineers from India worked day and night to design and deliver a superlative camera experience on the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus,” Singh said, adding that features like 'Scene Optimiser', 'Live Focus', and AR Emoji are just some of the few cameras features that are “made for the world, right here in India”.
Samsung has already opened the world's largest mobile phone factory in India and is deeply invested in the 'Make in India' program. It's part of the reason why Samsung enjoys competitive pricing due to local manufacturing.
Samsung India is also working on a new and improved version of Bixby Vision for Indian customers, where users will be able to “try and buy” clothes thanks to a local partnership with Myntra. Bixby Vision will also let Indian users find nearby restaurants by simply pointing the camera at a street. This is possible due to Samsung's partnership with Magicpin to provide users with live information on local interest points.
