Meet Galaxy Note 8 – Samsung’s first dual camera phone
One of the leading analysts and also a very trusted source of rumors, Ming-Chi Kuo, has delivered once again. Thanks to him, we now have news about the new Galaxy Note 8 and also the iPhone 8, and the news includes increased estimates when it comes to sales of the new Samsung products.
Kuo claims that Galaxy Note 8 is going to be Samsung’s first ever dual camera phone, and it will be more than able to match the soon to be iPhone 8. Not only that, but his news even suggests that the new dual camera on Galaxy Note 8 should even be better than the camera on iPhone 7, and even the one on iPhone 7 Plus.
There are already many rumors floating around, and most of them claim that the Note 8’s dual camera setup will feature 12MP wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiode (2PD), 3x optical zoom, 13MP telephoto CIS, dual 6P lenses and even a dual optical image stabilization. This very same concept was leaked before, and it was expected that these cameras will be featured even in Galaxy S8. Unfortunately, as we know now, this never happened. Instead, S8 ended up having the same camera as the previous Galaxy S7.
That’s not all since Kuo decided to reveal even more about the upcoming Note 8 model, and said that it will come with a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED. It will also be powered by Exynos 8895 processor, and not by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, as some previously believed.
And of course, Galaxy’s biggest competition, Apple’s iPhone 8 is also rumored to feature an interesting, almost bezel-less design. These kind of rumors were only to be expected after this newest leak concerning Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8, and many fans can’t wait to see what else these devices might bring that wasn’t even mentioned in Kuo’s leak.
