As the release of the phablet Samsung Galaxy Note 8 draws closer, there’s a lot of excitement in that the phone could be among the first from Samsung to ship with a dual-lens camera.
This dual-lens camera technology has been around for some time now, but Samsung, the leading company when it comes to global smartphone shipments, has yet to embrace the feature. It was thought that the Galaxy S8 would be the first phone to adopt this technology, but this did not materialize.
Even with the expectations that the Galaxy Note 8 will come with a dual-lens camera, there are rumors that it won’t be the only phone to spot this feature, with claims that the Galaxy C10 could, in fact, be the first to come with a dual-lens camera ahead of the Note 8.
Now, according to new reports, it appears that Samsung has plans to step up its Galaxy A and Galaxy C series handsets by introducing the dual-lens camera feature in future. As noted, rumor has it that the Galaxy C10 could be the first to spot this feature and if this latest rumor is to believed, this phone could trigger a series of changes to the entire Galaxy A and C families.
Next A&C Dual camera.

The competition is tough and with many OEMs throwing the dual-lens camera feature to their midrange and budget phones, Samsung doesn’t want to be left behind. The Galaxy A and C series are midrange handsets and with this feature coming on board, Samsung will be sending a clear message to the likes of Huawei, Oppo and Vivo, who are best-known for equipping their budget phones with this feature as a selling point.
So far, this is just a rumor and it doesn’t come from Samsung itself, which means it’d be safe to take it with a grain of salt until more information comes in. We’ll keep you updated.
