The Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to be a BIG impact for the Korean-based tech giant. Launching flagship devices are always a big deal, in the idea that this is where a majority of a company's overall sales and profits come from for the subsequent 12 months.
Samsung needs to bounce back
But more than that thought, following the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco of last year, Samsung needs the Galaxy S8 to be perfect and a huge success in order to make up for the big hold it put in its finances. Currently, the S8 is still under development, yet rumors and speculations are already at an all-time high.
S8 to feature dual-camera sensor
Recently, sources inside China have claimed that the Galaxy S8 will be featuring a dual-camera sensor. This would mean that the handset is keeping in trend with the likes of the LG G5 and Huawei P9, as well as rumors about the iPhone 7 Plus/Pro.
According to the details, the rumored dual-camera sensor will be engineered by Samsung Motors, implying that the firm will be producing its own imaging tech this time around.
Further rumors about dual-camera sensor
As time goes by, more and more sources are adding towards the Galaxy S8 rumor mill, further reiterating that the new handset will be featuring a dual-camera sensor. The unknown informant claims that the sensor array will feature both a Samsung 12MP sensor and a Sony 13MP sensor. On the other end, the front-facing camera is said to be an 8MP sensor.
The source also leaks about a potential Galaxy Note 7-style iris scanner.
