Now that just about all rumors, speculations, and leaks of Samsung Galaxy S8and S8+ are out there, attention has now begun shifting to the 2017 Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
After the disastrous Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is ready to make amends – first with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and later on with the Galaxy Note 8. The company has already talked up the flagship, promising that it is still in plans and will be launched later in the year. While there is nothing the company has said about the phone other than confirming that it’ll be safer and better, a new report coming from China reveals that the Note 8 could be Samsung’s first device to ship with a dual-lens camera setup.
Despite the fact that this is just a mere rumor, this is how details of other devices released in the past have come to be known. Samsung was expected to add a dual-lens camera to the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but this is not happening. Instead, the tech giant will stick with last year’s single-lens setup that was still one of the best in the market, second to Google Pixel, at least according to DxOMark.

Recently, it emerged that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be developed under codename Project Baikal. Since then, several rumors have started coming up and this dual-lens camera setup is just one of the latest. Like before, Samsung will supposedly keep the same hardware specs for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8, but as usual, the S Pen will be there to make the difference and a few other features.
In the past, the Note series has been Samsung’s phablet class, but this year’s Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will come with 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch QHD screens. It remains to be seen what screen size Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will ship with, but with the likes of Xiaomi Mi MIX and Lenovo Phab 2 Pro already up there with monstrous 6.4-inch display screens, don’t be surprised if Samsung took the same direction with the Note 8.
