Samsung Electronics is going to use a dual camera for the first time in its smartphone with the release of the flagship Galaxy Note 8 by the end of 2017. This was reported by the Korean edition of the Korea Herald with reference to Park Kang-ho, an analyst from Daishin Securities.
According to the source, initially it was planned to build a dual camera already in the Galaxy S8, but they had to be canceled because of the high cost. Camera Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will receive a 12-megapixel wide-angle module and a 13-megapixel telephoto module, together providing a 3x optical zoom. A similar design we saw in the iPhone 7 Plus. Recall, previously it was assumed that the Galaxy Note 8 will be the first Samsung smartphone with a dual camera. But then there was a message that the next smartphone series Samsung Galaxy C will receive a dual camera before Galaxy Note 8. In addition, according to earlier rumors, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is equipped with a noticeably larger display than the predecessor – a diagonal of 6.4 or 6.3 inches. The screen is made using Super AMOLED technology, and the resolution will be QHD + or 4K. With a discount on the changed proportions, 4K can mean, for example, 4428 x 2160 pixels. The basis should lie Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processors or proprietary Exynos 9-series, 6 GB of operating and up to 256 GB of internal flash memory. Galaxy Note 8 will receive a Galaxy S8-style design with very small edges at the top and bottom of the display without the traditional home button under the screen, and with a dedicated button for the Bixby voice assistant on the left side, next to the volume controls.
