Was The Samsung Galaxy S8 Supposed To Have A Dual Camera Set Up?
The Samsung Galaxy S8 was launched to a resounding success thanks in large part to some of its new features that haven't been seen in any other smartphone. The Korean conglomerate's flagship device also utilized existing high-end specs further cementing its place as one of the best smartphones today. However, it could have been way better if a certain feature on a prototype of the Galaxy S8 made it to the finished product. The very recent leak showed that one of the prototypes of the Galaxy S8 sported a dual camera setup.
CNET described the leaked image of the prototype as having an all-black rear casing with the Samsung logo right under what seems to be a couple of cameras stacked on top of each other. This is a complete turnaround from the actual Samsung Galaxy S8 launched days ago which only had a single-lens 12-megapixel rear camera. The flagship device also has a fingerprint reader situated beside the camera. In the leaked prototype, there is no fingerprint reader at all. The casing also had some stickers on it. One sticker contained the code SM-G955F which is the model number used for the Galaxy S8 Plus.
According to Phone Arena, the camera for the Galaxy S8 will be supplied by Sony and Samsung itself. The smartphone will either have Sony's IMX333 sensor or Samsung's ISOCELL S5K2L2. Both cameras have never been used on any device before so they will be making their debut with the Galaxy S8 which will also feature a much-improved 8MP front-facing camera.
Despite the absence of a dual camera system in the Galaxy S8, Samsung likely still has plans to incorporate the feature on future smartphones. Last month, the company announced that dual camera image processing is supported by its new Exynos 9 chip. This may be an indication that the next Samsung device to utilize the new chip will likely have dual cameras.
