The latest rumor about a dual camera setup has nothing to do with the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. It actually has to do with a phone that probably won’t be introduced until next February, the Samsung Galaxy S8. Word out of China is that the next iteration of Samsung’s flagship smartphone will feature a dual camera module on the back of the phone. The rumor says that this will be a home grown component devised by Samsung Motors (Semco).
With the increasing popularity of VR, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to feature a 4K resolution screen (2160 x 3840). A screen like that will no doubt consume battery life like crazy. If the rumor is true, we can expect a massive juicer inside the handset.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 could be driven by the Snapdragon 830 chipset. The chip will be produced using the 10nm FinFET process which means that it will provide more power, but will also be energy efficient.
There is no word on whether the phone will keep the IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, but we are pretty confident that a lot more leaks about the phone lay ahead. Heck, we’re still waiting for the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
