Even though Samsung did not exactly say it out loud, we are sure that the iris scanner will inevitably be a part of the Galaxy S8 next year. The company has made it official that they will compensate their parts suppliers, who suffered a loss as a direct result of the Note 7's recall and subsequent discontinuation. Both common sense and reports from South Korea are suggesting that this compensation will involve endowing the S8 with an iris scanner. Additionally, Samsung may also choose to equip the S8 with a dual-lens rear camera sensor to increase revenue for the affected supply chain partners.


Sources state that the main partners who will benefit from this decision are Sekonix (camera lens supplier), Samsung Electro-Mechanics (camera module supplier), Patron and MCNEX (iris scanner manufacturer) and Kolen (supplies the lens necessary for building the iris scanner). Since there is also another rumor going around, which states that Samsung will concentrate on one flagship smartphone in the entire next year, this might actually be a good strategy. It will help Samsung stay in good terms with their suppliers, as well as slowly turning around the unfortunate incident which has and will continue to cost all involved parties dearly for at least a good while more.

Ming-Chi Kuo from 9to5Mac is famous as the most prominent (and accurate) analyst in the world when it comes to Apple and its products, but every once in a while, he does give out some pretty interesting details about other famous brands like Samsung as well. As it happens, Ming-Chi Kuo has just made some interesting revelations which assert previous rumors that all of us had been hearing for a while about the Note 8. He believes that the Galaxy Note 8 will sport its "most important upgrade" in the form of a dual camera setup at its back.


Although we were pretty much all expecting that, he goes on to add quite a few exciting details to this little "revelation" as well. Apparently, the cameras will comprise of a 12-megapixel wide-angle CIS 2PD lens and a 13-megapixel CIS dual 6P (six element) telephoto lens. Along with dual optical image stabilization, there will also be the option to use 3X lossless optical zoom. He even excitedly predicts that the camera setup will produce images that will rival those taken by the upcoming OLED iPhone.


Kuo also goes on to mention that the Note 8 will sport a display with an 18.5:9 ratio and 1440 x 2960 resolution, just as the one seen on the S8+, but even bigger at 6.4-inches. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and the Exynos 8895 will likely be powering the Note as well.

While a lot of flagship handsets carry excellent cameras nowadays, the Galaxy S-series always seems to have an edge over the competition every time it comes out. This is not to say that the Pixels and the iPhones are not as good, it's just that when the S-series of smartphones come out for the first time, they seem to perform quite a bit better than their current gen competition.


Staying true to this track record, the S9+ has just scored 99 on the DxOMark test and that puts it right on top and even above the fantastic cameras currently found on the Google Pixel 2 (98). It scored a 104 on individual photos and a 91 in the video category, both of which are remarkable scores with the first one actually being the highest ever for a smartphone camera. We are pretty sure that the next iPhones and the Pixels will beat that score in the future, but for now, the S9+ truly does have the best smartphone camera in the world.
