For those who like photography, there is no need to worry. Although the Samsung Galaxy M10 is marketed at a price of one million, it doesn’t mean lowering the quality, especially on the camera side. Because this large battery cellphone retains the dual rear camera feature with a 13MP + 5MP configuration. For its composition, the 13MP camera sensor has an aperture of f/1.9. With this large opening, the Samsung Galaxy M10 camera can produce bright photos even in minimal weather.
Meanwhile, the 5MP camera sensor is a 120-degree ultra wide angle camera with an f/2.2 aperture.
