Companies these days are trying to create phones with DSLR-like cameras. hahahaha. Why not create DSLR Camera that can be used as a phone.
U guys are complaining about added features? Having options are better. The same peoplecomplain about getting glass backs ( we lost removable batttery because of u guys! Waterproofing with plastic backs was possible!) when most will put it on a case anyways. I rather get a bunch of cameras if it has a possible purpose than lose stuff, like the headphone jack that apple started.
Cure, 25 Sep 2018Only 4? I need at least 38 cameras or no buy.Be carefull what you wish! Android GodÂ’s are listening.
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2018Manufacturers created big ass phones for women because they always have their bags with them. ... moreYou forgot mobile phones are for men too lol. Not everyone will carry a bag everywhere they go, that's why we are always clamouring for bigger battery and better battery life.
Well Samsung is on Attack mode :) considering A7 2018 is still gimmicky, cause depth camera does nothing else, consider as it is dual camera wide and regular
A phone with 4 cameras?, lol. speechless.Soon will have phones with 8 cameras,lol.
Those pics look like some trolling xD
And that fingerprint scanner... this whole design now looks like Samsung copying Huawei...
I wonÂ’t buy a phone unless it has 5 cameras on the back because.. IÂ’m retarded and like to waste my money on things which are equally retarded.
I think some people should just consider getting a proper camera. But then again, who these days [with money] exercises common sense.
What a joke the mobile market has become
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2018This is ridiculous. All we really need is one (1) GOOD camera instead of 4, 5, or 6 crappy ... moreThere is a limit to how good a camera can get on smartphones, due to size limitations. However, there is a workaround by using multiple lenses, taking advantage of software, called computational photography.

The same women who are now crying how newer iphones are too big to use for their hands.
Seriously, who tf pockets a dslr camera? A bag exists for a reason.
common samsung whats wrong ....this is bad idea ....its ugly design
OMG - there are so much space left on the back. They could have added at least 64 cameras.
Samsung got the rumor that Apple will introduce 3 lenses - so they made 4 cameras. Samsung quality matters - not quantity. Pathetic android sheep.
aceofgenerations, 25 Sep 2018I don't know, it seems like a good idea. How good of a camera can you fit into such a slim bod... morethat's exactly the point with multiple camera designs, both on mobile and on proper cameras...
smartphone cameras have already gone a long way, not so long ago autofocus in such small cameras was something deemed as nearly impossible, not because of sensor, but because it was extremely hard to make the focus lens group move back and forth, in such a way that the movement was stable, and that the axis would remain perfectly straight during the movement.
adding the zooming function would require to add another set of zooming lenses, in the whole assembly... and as you may immagine, in this set of lenses at least two of the elements will have to be able to move (varifocal).
this puts another strain on both the specs (the lens will need to be thicker) and technical aspects (controlling 2, or more, movement, while retaining a perfectly straight axis and smooth movement, is not an easy feat, even in larger dslr lenses).
in the past they tried two different approaches to solve this problem.
the first one involved classic lenses made of glass, shaped in a double covex/concave shape on one side and plain on the other side, two of such lenses were paired together, with the plain sides facing each other, the lenses then were to slide up and down, thus attaining a "single" lenses with a wide range of shapes.
the second approach used a liquid lens (made of mineral oil), which was shaped by an electrical field.
both the approaches proved not feasible or simply the technology is not mature enough yet.
with multiple cameras you could have each camera limited to a small range of focal length, thus requiring a limited movement for the focus lenses, keeping the thickness in check and reducing the aberrations.
