A Dual Camera Samsung Galaxy S8 Surfaces In Leak – Take A Look!
Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ come with a lot of new features. Their look and feel breathes fresh life into Samsung's flagship smartphone lineup. Compare the Galaxy S8 pair to their predecessors, and you'll see just how far the Korean tech giant has come in a year. But while the Galaxy S8 and its larger brother might have upgraded their design, Samsung's made concessions at other ends. One of these is the camera for the devices. In strictly hardware terms, the company hasn't introduced any major changes this year. Now, we've got more information on the matter. Take a look below to find out more.
Latest Leak Suggests That Samsung Did Test The Galaxy S8 With A Dual Camera
Even as Samsung's done with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+'s launch, the leaks just don't want to stop. The pair, just like their predecessors, are the most widely leaked smartphones in recent history. They were well predicted by the rumor mill before launch. In fact, Samsung's event served no purpose apart from confirming a majority of specifications that had surfaced beforehand. Still, some features rumored for the pair didn't make it either.
One of these is a dual camera setup. The feature was the part of some of the earliest leaks related to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Common sense suggested that the Korean tech giant will use the feature on its flagship smartphones. After all, Samsung doesn't like being left behind on new features launched by other manufacturers. But, like virtual fingerprint recognition, later leaks suggested that the feature won't make it on March's launch of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
Some alleged images of a Galaxy S8 prototype that features a dual camera have surfaced today. They're courtesy of a Vietnamese source, so we're less inclined to doubt their authenticity as of now. They show a Samsung Galaxy S8 which features a vertical dual camera arrangement at their rear. It resembles recent leaked images for the Xiaomi Mi6, although the device's simpler design for its back doesn't make it ugly for the Chinese smartphone.
The report doesn't provide strong reasons for Samsung's decision to not go with the module on its latest smartphones. At this point, we can only speculate why. Perhaps the Korean tech giant didn't want to compromise battery performance for its latest flagships. Dual camera will make it on the Galaxy Note 8, that's for sure. Thoughts?
