Ming-Chi Kuo: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to Feature Dual Rear Cameras


Many of these specs and features are similar to those of the S8 or S8 Plus, and we'd expect a bigger screen. It would also be available for offline purchase via Samsung's official retail partners.

Samsung is now offering anyone who pre-orders the S8 the chance to get it in their pocket eight days before everyone else.

When it comes to unlocking your Galaxy S8 with biometric security, there's no shortage of options. Both the devices will ship starting 5th May 2017. The Infinity Display and bezel-less design form a smooth, continuous surface with no buttons or harsh angles. From the design point of view, there are a few changes such as fingerprint sensor has moved to the rear whereas the front has an on-screen home button sorts with haptic technology.

Kuo also notes of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 that Samsung is expected to unveil later this year and how the device will compare to the iPhone 8... The Note 8 is also not the largest Samsung smartphone on the market, however, as the South Korean company released a 7-inch Samsung Galaxy W, which never made it to the American market. The Samsung Galaxy S8 boxes in a 5.8-inch QHD+ super AMOLED display (1440x2960p) and its variant Galaxy S8 Plus offers the same display at 6.2-inches.

Obviously, we also heard rumors about the Galaxy S8 featuring a dual-camera system, but it didn't feature it. The Snapdragon 835 will be available in the global market but has launched with its own processor Exynos in India which may hit the market share of Samsung S8. Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ house a 12-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera and 8MP selfie camera. Besides Corning Gorilla Glass 5, the devices house 4GB RAM and offer 64GB inbuilt storage which can be expanded up to 256GB with a microSD card. They run on Android 7.0 Nougat and have USB-C and 3.5mm headphone jacks. The phonemaker has said that Bixby voice commands will not be activated until spring.
