Samsung reportedly cancels dual-camera setup for the Galaxy S8, will stick with single camera

38

Samsung’s next flagship smartphone will be the Galaxy S8, which is expected to be launched at MWC 2017. We are already hearing many things about S8, including the availability of Samsung’s own digital assistant. In addition, both variants of the device might also have the Edge display. Now a new leak, which has emerged from a popular leakster on Chinese site Weibo, indicates that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will skip a dual camera setup and will continue with a single rear camera.

Additionally, the leak also says that the dual camera setup could be present on the larger variant of the S8, which is rumored to be getting a bump in size to 6.2 inches. The smaller variant – a 5.1-inch device if Samsung continues its current trend or a 5.7 incher if rumors are to be believed – would have only a single camera, similar to the iPhone 7. No details about the rear camera have been revealed until now, although Samsung’s vice chairman has said the S8 will feature an improved camera. The front camera is expect to be a 5-megapixel sensor, with support for autofocus.

Apart from the supposed increase in display size to 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch, it is said the Galaxy S8 could do away with the home button, which will help keep the overall size of the device smaller despite the larger displays. 6GB of RAM is also rumored on the Galaxy S8, along with a variant with 256GB of internal storage. The S8 is expected to launch at MWC in early 2017, although Samsung could delay the launch to make sure the Galaxy Note 7’s explosions do not affect its next flagship.
