After a recent report, the Galaxy Note 10 may miss the long-awaited 64MP camera candle sensor from Samsung, while it now appears that the South Korean electronics giant is debuting the megapixel monster on a much less premium device.
According to the Korean site ET News, Samsung is planning to bring the world's first 64 MP phone camera to the Samsung Galaxy A70S phone – an upcoming mid-range phone that is likely to be an upgrade to the just-released Galaxy A70.

It is not surprising that Samsung would choose a mid-range phone to debut its 64MP sensor – Samsung CEO DJ Koh told CNBC last year that the company would "introduce technology and differentiation points from the middle of the day".
If the report is correct, the Galaxy A70S from Samsung could unlock the megapixel crown of current reigning champion Sony, who debuted in 2018 with the IMX586 smartphone with a huge 48MP snapper.
ET News suggests that the Samsung Galaxy A70S could launch in the second half of 2019, although there is currently no word about the specific territories in which the phone is being released.
