Samsung Galaxy Note 7 ended up as a disaster for the company, but it seems the company is still confident to launch the successor of the phablet to cover up for the mess created last year.
According to a new report, the well-known KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the Galaxy Note 8 will be the first device from the Korean manufacturer to feature a dual-camera setup on the back.
Kuo has a pretty decent track record when it comes to predictions about Apple products, which are often correct so we have to take his word on the Galaxy Note 8. The analyst goes as far as to call this new feature the “most important upgrade” for the handset.
The analyst further mentions that the details about the camera module, featuring 3x optical zoom, 12-megapixel wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiode (2PD), 13MP telephoto CIS, dual 6P lenses and dual Optical Image Stabilization.
Interestingly, he even claims that the dual-camera setup on the alleged Galaxy Note 8 will be “much better than that of the iPhone 7 Plus”.
Obviously, we also heard rumors about the Galaxy S8 featuring a dual-camera system, but it didn’t feature it. So we have to take this with a grain of salt, but the Korean company did file a patent for a thinner dual-camera system. Other details about the handset are not available, but we’ll update you as soon as we get to hear more about it.
