Samsung is preparing to launch the new Galaxy S7 which is rumored to occur as soon as January 2016.
Prior to the launch, a number of rumors and speculations have already appeared online on just how the next Galaxy flagship will stack up against the competition and even against its older siblings.
The most prominent rumor so far is on the device's camera technology which has created quite a stir since it is said to offer not just one but two cameras as an innovative feature.
According to rumors, Samsung seemed to be toying with the idea of incorporating the next generation of its Galaxy handsets with the dual camera setup. While the concept is still in a nascent state, it is otherwise plausible as shown by HTC when it introduced the technology on the M8.
In a previous report at Tech Times, the rumors claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will come with a 5.7-inch display and a dual rear camera feature. The company is also speculated to use a different approach, perhaps to deviate from the path taken by HTC, or fine-tune some ideas in order to eventually launch the dual camera setup for its next flagship handset.
As far as camera quality is concerned however, Samsung is just one of those companies which never fail to impress its users. The company touts the current Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge as being equipped with optimized hardware and software, enough to deliver higher quality images even in low light condition.
"When it comes to choosing the best smartphone camera to capture everyday photos, the ability to take clear images in low light is a key factor," said Samsung. "The next generation image processing chips and algorithms on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge speed up processing times for enhanced image quality in low light."
The dual-camera technology allows the user to capture each photo's depth information without creating any delays. Pictures can be applied with the so-called post-processing effect to make them look more personalized. The idea is made possible by simply understanding the depth of the scene. Once this is achieved, it is easy to add effects such as background blur, color and augmented reality on certain parts of the picture.
As for Samsung, the company understands for a fact that adding the technology to its future handsets would also create new challenges that include an increase in production costs, design innovations and software compatibility.
It remains to be seen whether Samsung will finally release a dual-camera equipped handset in 2016. However, the possibility of seeing it in the upcoming Galaxy S7 seemed to be already ruled out.
