Samsung is ready to one-up the iPhone 11 Pro camera system by adding four lenses to the back of its next flagship smartphone.

Leaked images surfaced online this weekend giving a full view of the upcoming Galaxy S20 (yes, you read that right, Samsung is skipping ahead a few numbers). Samsung is set to unveil the S20 during a live-streamed keynote next. We’ve seen a couple of renders of the S20 leading up to the event, but this is these are the first real images of the iPhone’s next big rival.

Take a look at this huge camera bump:

It looks like the camera system in the back has four lenses (regular, macro, ultra-wide and telephoto), a flash and a microphone hole. The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max pack ultra-wide, regular and telephoto lenses. Apple’s 2020 iPhone lineup is rumored to include a phone with four camera lenses as well.

According to XDA Developers, which obtained the images, this particular model will be called the Galaxy S20+. It will be a mid-tier model for the S20 series, which will also boast a “Galaxy S20 Ultra” model that will have even more advanced camera tech.

The bezel-free display with a punch-hole camera is perhaps the biggest design change along with the giant camera system in the back. Instead of using 3D curved glass, Samsung is supposedly using 2.5D glass, giving it a flatter feel. Other rumors have claimed the phones will feature 120Hz displays and of course, 5G. Some 4G models will also be available.

Samsung’s big Unpacked event is slated to go down in Apple’s backyard of San Francisco on Tuesday, February 11 at 11AM PT. Other devices revealed at the event could also include a clamshell-style smartphone with a folding display called the Galaxy Z Flip.
