Samsung Galaxy S8: Dual camera at the back and an iris scanner

31 August, 2016 Samsung


Although it has not even been a month since the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was unveiled, leakstars are already giving us titbits about the Galaxy S8, which is to be released in 2017. As reported earlier, the S8 is quite likely to sport a 4K display, mainly for VR content consumption. However, we have details from a Chinese source on Weibo today that indicates a dual rear camera setup for the S8. According to the report, one of the camera modules will be supplied by Sony, while the S5K2L2 module will be manufactured by Samsung themselves. Although the resolutions of the sensors are said to be 12mp and 13mp, which of these resolutions the S5K2L2 module will sport is unclear as of now.


The front camera will be a bumped up 8mp sensor next year, unlike the 5-megapixel sensors that we are now used to seeing even on Samsung flagship devices. Expectedly, the iris scanner that we are just getting used to with the Note 7, should also be there. In spite of the Galaxy S8 being far from coming into existence at this moment, we are quite sure that the rumors will keep coming as they always do. Nevertheless, going by how the "6GB RAM" theory turned out to be untrue in case of the Galaxy Note 7, we would not buy into anything too soon.
