The Galaxy Note 8 has popped up yet again, this time becoming the subject of an investor note by reliable KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The upcoming phone is apparently going to be the company’s first dual camera offering.
Samsung needs something to dazzle consumers with given the notorious history of the Galaxy Note 7. An impressive twin shooter setup might just do the trick for the Galaxy Note 8, with Kuo stating that the adoption of such a module will be the most important upgrade in the device.
Kuo goes as far as to claim that the handset’s dual snappers will be much better than the iPhone 7 Plus’ own duo and match the iPhone 8’s module. Samsung is supposedly going to do so by equipping the rear cameras with 3x optical zoom, a 12MP wide-angle sensor supporting dual photodiode, a 13MP telephoto sensor, dual 6P lenses, and dual OIS.
The research note also predicts that the Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 processor, sport a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and carry a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED screen. Previous speculation and a live photo indicate that the brand plans to stick to the same bezel-less Infinity Display that’s currently featured on the Galaxy S8.
Interestingly, photos of what is supposed to be a rejected prototype of the Galaxy S8 Plus (see above) showed up a few days ago on Twitter. The person behind the leak suggests that since Samsung couldn’t find a place for the dual camera setup on its current flagship, it might be planning to implement the pair for the Galaxy Note 8 instead.
