If you did not already heard, Samsung has quietly revealed a pair of A series smartphones last week in Vietnam. The duo, the Galaxy A71 and A51 smartphones, may not be flagship devices, but they could be hints of what’s to come for the upcoming Galaxy S11 devices with respect to the camera module.

For the longest time, Samsung has been consistence with the camera array, be it one, two or multiple cameras and that is, a single horizontal or vertical arrangement. Not with the A71 and A51, though. These devices are rocking a rectangular camera bump that packs four camera units in a L-shaped pattern.
