Just a day after announcing the Galaxy S10, Samsung is boasting about the device’s camera. That’s because DxOMark has bestowed the Galaxy S10 Plus with a terrific overall score for image quality, tying with Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro in DxOMark’s rankings.
Samsung’s device received a score of 109 for its triple-camera setup, with DxOMark praising the camera’s exposure, color, and bokeh. It received an overall score of 114 points in the photo category and 97 points in the video category.
Notably, the Galaxy S10 Plus scored a 96 for its front-facing camera, which is the highest score DxOMark has ever given in the category, even beating Google’s excellent Pixel 3.
The Galaxy S10 Plus features three rear cameras: a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens, a 12-megapixel wide lends, and a 12-megapixel telephoto module, and uses a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) to get “pro-grade shots.”
We’ve gotten our hands on the Galaxy 10, but we don’t yet have our own verdict on whether the device features a camera that’s on a par with the P20 Pro. We’re in the process of testing the Galaxy S10’s camera, and will have some thoughts on the quality soon.
