Not bad, should be way cheaper than the overpriced and under performing S20 series

Front and back has 3 and 5 modules respectively, but each ToF sensor has an emitter and receiver. https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s10_5g-9588.php

GSMArena say 2 cameras+1 3d tof sensor, totals 3. I see 4 modules on the back. Here is missing something.
Please update info on the rear camera setup!

Whackcar, 26 Feb 2020Let's say it is, what about the dual-cameras then? Low yield for that too?
I think LG did ... moreI didn't comment about the cameras because I couldn't find any reason not to keep the third one. Other OEMs are heavily playing on showing big specs, and cameras are a very hot specs opportunity, at least as long as marketing goes. Surely the additional amount of people drawn to their device due to the extra sensor would greatly offset the ~40$ (big max) in lost profits for each unit sold.
Or they're happy with the G8 (dual camera) and G8X sales figures. Who knows.

but why LG didn't upgrade the dual screen resolution instead of decreasing the main screen resolution .
I don't understand LG anymore...
if i compare it with Xperia 1 mk2, Sony wins in everything except that LG has 1000mAh more, also the dual screen is a gimmick and GorillaGlass 5 in 2020 is another mistake from LG!
i think the V50 ThinkQ design's is much better!

I think LG did this move to maximize the profits. They're corner-cutting on things that aren't necessary. The average consumer can't tell the difference between 1080p & 1440p. As for lack of telephoto, they're probably relying on their new 64MP primary sensor to do some hybrid zoom.
Let's say all of the above is true, then LG needs to price their phone according to the compromises. Otherwise they're being unreasonable.

Could be my next phone! Thanks for that 5000mAh battery, LG ! Other phone makers dont get it - I want endurance most of all from modern phone.
GSMarena - now waiting for review with endurance test.

No royalties either. Maximum fees a manufacturer can pay is 10,000$
