Samsung Galaxy S8 to also feature dual rear cameras, apart from 4K display
While there are already rumors about Samsung Galaxy S8 hitting the markets next February, the latest rumor now claims that it will have a dual rear camera system designed to compete better with the next iPhone. The next iteration of Samsung’s flagship smartphone will feature a dual camera module on the back of the phone and the dual camera lens is most likely to be engineered by Samsung motors (Semco), claims rumors. The smartphone will also come with necessary software additions to allow consumers to take advantage of the complete feature suite from the camera app.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is also expected to feature a 4K resolution screen (2160 x 3840) and measure 5.5 inch UHD AMOLED screen. Adding the 4k resolution screen would help push along Samsung’s VR prowess by delivering a better user experience. The Galaxy S8 could be the first smartphone from Samsung to sport a UHD display and dual-camera configuration.
The smartphone could be powered by the Snapdragon 830 SoC. The chip will be produced using the 10nm FinFET process, which means that it will not only provide more power, but will also be energy efficient. Other hardware details on the Galaxy S8 are not known at this time.
Samsung is working on VR headset technology for next year and since this technology rotates around small phone displays being placed into a headset device that puts the 5.5 inch screen close to the eyes, 4K resolution will be an integral part of that type of VR.
With a potential for dual cameras, a Snapdragon 830 chip, and a 4K resolution screen, the next Galaxy S device could pose a serious threat to the Apple flagship phone.
