Galaxy A71 successor could hack a Samsung phone camera first, here are all the specs



Remember when we marveled at the hexa camera Galaxy S10 5G? Well, it was actually a quad camera kit on the back and the dual front camera set, so technically Samsung has maxed out four rear cameras so far, and one of them was a ToF sensor that can’t technically be called a usable camera to take pictures with.

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, on the other hand, has “only” three rear cameras, while Samsung’s four-camera tradition has continued with phones like the Galaxy S20 + (which again has a ToF sensor) and the Galaxy A71, whose 5MP “depth” and “macro” cameras complete a rather pointless trend towards increasing the number of sensors for marketing purposes. That uselessness, however, is about to change, perhaps as early as December.

Galaxy A72 could be released as Samsung’s first penta camera phone

According to Korean media reports, the successor to the one that turned out to be very popular Galaxy A71 it will be called A72 and will first carry a Samsung in the form of a penta camera positioned on the back.

Here is a list of the Samsung Galaxy A72 camera specs to expect:

  • A 64MP main sensor
  • A 12MP ultrawide lens camera
  • An 8MP camera with a 3x zoom lens
  • A 5MP macro camera
  • A dedicated 5 MP “bokeh” sensor

What will be the difference between the current 5MP “depth” sensors and any 5MP “bokeh” sensors remains to be heard, but the report states that the Galaxy A72 will use the bokeh one specifically for portraits, to separate the fine details of a subject in front and in the center (i.e. hair) from the background blurred better.

We all agree, Samsung, and those of you who stopped before buying the Galaxy A71 because they didn’t have the optical zoom, will now have a chance to grab its successor which will have the camera options kitchen sink.
