The invite promises "4x fun", hinting that Samsung could be planning to launch a Galaxy smartphone with four cameras.

Samsung has announced "A Galaxy Event" on October 11 for a new Galaxy device or series of devices, merely months after revealing the Galaxy Note 9 flagship smartphone. Two of the new camera features touted during the Galaxy S9 announcement were Super Slow Motion and AR Emoji. Reports of 4 rear cameras, 3 rear cameras and a single front camera and also 2 rear and 2 front cameras have emerged. Yes, of course, we are talking about the coveted Samsung Galaxy Note 9, with everything bigger and better than its predecessors; battery, screen size the whole nine yards.

Flagship or not, we'll know more about the mysterious device when the live streamed event begins on October 11th. And Huawei recently launched a triple-camera phone in the P20 Pro and is rumored to be putting three lenses in the upcoming Mate 20 as well. The invite has now confirmed that the manufacturer in question was Samsung.

IPhone XS: Apple to announce new phones at launch event
However, the XR loses out on 3D Touch and relies on Taptic Feedback for launching the camera or the flashlight. iPhone Xr should be considered the successor to the iPhone 8 , and it is the cheapest of the new iPhones .

Granted, we still need more details about this cheap Galaxy S10, but it sure sounds like the phone won't be able to compete against the iPhone XR.

Samsung has already confirmed it's set to announce its first foldable phone (codenamed the Galaxy X) before the end of the year, but now we expect that to come in November.

However, we also wouldn't discount the possibility of seeing a Samsung smartphone with four times zoom, as some of its devices already have two times hybrid zoom. With a dual camera setup becoming common even in low range phones, its time to step up the game. The most important thing is that the phone is priced the same (Rs 67,900) as its predecessor i.e. Samsung Galaxy Note 8, when it was launched.
