Samsung will not launch the Galaxy S8 until February 2017 but rumors of the flagship smartphone have already started. Latest speculations suggest that the Galaxy device may have a dual camera setup.
Mobile phone owners often use their smartphones for taking photographs on the go. The camera technology in handsets has improved a lot over the last decade and many people search for a good camera on their phones.
Most of the smartphones available in the market have single camera setup. However, the trend may change in the near term, as previous rumors have indicated that Samsung is planning to equip the Galaxy Note 6/7 edge, which is expected to be revealed in August this year, with dual camera. Samsung Electro-Mechanics (Semco) is said to be building the dual lens for the upcoming phablet's camera.
Now, WCCF Tech cites Chinese sources and reports that Semco is also making dual camera lens for Samsung's first 2017 flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8.
Dual camera setup improves the overall picture quality. Handsets with dual camera lens allow users to capture high-quality wide angle images. Devices with dual camera setup also capture more light, which results in sharper and clearer images even in low light conditions.
Smartphones with dual cameras such as the Huawei P9 and LG G5 are already available in the market. Rumors also suggest that the iPhone 7 Plus may also come with a dual camera system.
Apart from the dual camera lens, the Galaxy S8 is expected to feature a 4K or Ultra HD display technology. Devices with 4K capability also offer improved VR experience. The high display resolution will draw a lot of power, which means that the rumored Samsung handset will also have a bigger battery.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy device may also come running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor. Most of the flagship mobile phones of 2016 have 4 GB of RAM. It is likely that the Galaxy S8 may come with 6 GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 will be one of the most awaited mobile phones of 2017 and avid smartphone photographers will certainly hope that the handset comes with a dual camera setup, which will allow users to take high-quality images.
Rumors regarding the Galaxy S8 will keep on emerging until it is actually unveiled. However, if the South Korean company launches the Galaxy Note 6/7 edge with dual camera then it will be highly likely for the Galaxy S8 to be equipped with the same camera setup.
