SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics, the world's top smartphone maker, will unveil a new Galaxy device which could feature a triple-lens camera next month. A teaser poster with the slogan "4x fun" has been uploaded,  

"Samsung’s newest Galaxy device is bringing more ways to express yourself than ever before," the tech giant said in an invitation uploaded onto its news blog on Friday. The special Galaxy event will be streamed live on October 11.

Although Samsung did not specify on its special event, tech-savvy people speculated that "4x fun" could mean a device with a four-lens camera. "4x could mean a single-lens front camera and a triple-lens rear camera," wrote Erangel, a user of Clien, a South Korean online IT community,

Another user nicknamed Hokyung came up with a detailed prediction: "It will be a Galaxy A model with a triple-lens camera." Galaxy A is a mid-range smartphone which targets cost-conscious consumers who seek good quality products at reasonable prices.

There has been speculation that Samsung is developing Galaxy S10 with a triple-lens camera and a self-healing screen. Some claimed Samsung's upcoming smartphone is not about Galaxy S10 but a new Galaxy A device.
