Samsung has already pushed up the Galaxy Note 8 release date to August, and if rumors can be trusted, then we may expect the new phablet to come out on the 26th of that month. However, there are a bunch of other concerns about the upcoming device, most of which pertain to the Galaxy Note 8 features. And the latest reports based on Samsung’s own revelation suggests certain clues into the handset’s camera set up.
At the MWC Shanghai 2017 event, Samsung has introduced a range of camera sensors. Named Isocell, the brand has got four new sub-brands that aim to go big on image quality. Among the four, the one that has come under the spotlight is the dual-lens one named the Isocell Dual, which “can be mixed and matched in various combinations on consumer devices to bring about features demanded in the latest dual camera trend.”
It is very natural to conclude that Samsung will implement the new Isocell Dual sensors in upcoming smartphones, and with the Galaxy Note 8 already rumored to come with a twin-camera setup, we expect them to be launched first with the upcoming flagship. But thanks to new reports, it appears that this is more than mere speculation.
BGR has now come forward with an exclusive image that represent the Galaxy Note 8 based on the design being used by the factory building the smartphone, and that image clearly shows the presence of a horizontal dual-lens camera at the rear. Not that this is a solid proof, but it is only logical to derive that this unit will be powered by the Isocell Dual sensors.
The image, however, also confirms one of the things that potential buyers are dreading the most. The camera unit is accompanied by a fingerprint scanner right next to it- the same location that the feature was housed at in the Galaxy S8.
Whatever be the case, the Galaxy Note 8 features will be undeniably be enviable. The phablet is expected to go forward with the trademark Infinity Display, but it is definitely expected to be a lot more improved upon. Coming to the Galaxy Note 8 price, it is expected to cost around the $900 mark for buyers in the US.
