Samsung Teases a Four-Lens Camera With '4x Fun' Event


In an unprecedented move, Samsung will reportedly unveil a new smartphone in the middle of October. In a bid to stay ahead of the competition, Samsung has something special in store for fans.

It looks like some of the Android Oreo updates that Samsung has been generously deploying in various parts of the world, have just arrived in the United States as well. Of course, "4x fun" could turn out not to have anything to do with cameras and could refer to. In a followup it was clarified that from their knowledge all four cameras were on the rear. Now with Samsung's confirmation for an October event perfectly fits the bill.

It is easy to interpret the wording of the invite as a sign Samsung will release a device with four cameras. Fortunately for those who bought Verizon's Galaxy J7 and J7 V smartphones, Samsung has decided these phones are worthy of Android 8.0 Oreo.

Samsung sent out invitations on Friday (Sep 14) for an Oct 11 event to launch a new mobile device under its Galaxy line.

The big picture: Samsung's Note 9 flagship is less than a month old and the foldable Galaxy X probably won't be shown until later this year.

We also know the company is set to put more focus on its mid-range devices, so it may be this event is specifically for those upcoming phones.
