South Korean multinational electronics company Samsung unveiled its long-awaited flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S8 in April and now within just two months, it is being speculated that a dual-lens rear camera variant of the device might soon be launched by the tech giant. Although these rumors were surfacing online even before the device’s launch in April, now we have evidence in hand which hints at the arrival of the new variant.
In a post on Chinese micro-blogging website Weibo, a leaked image of the speculated Galaxy S8 edition has come up. It shows that the variant will come up with a vertically arranged dual rear camera lens. This is almost identical to what we are going to see in the upcoming flagship smartphone by the company – Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
As per the leaked image, the new variant will not have a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. It seems that the multi-million dollar company is working on getting the fingerprint sensor embedded below the display panel. This is just another feather that the device is probably going to add to its hat. We already have seen consumer reports that have appreciated Galaxy S8, and if the rumor regarding the dual-lens rear camera variant turns out to be true, then fans have more reasons to celebrate.
Samsung Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch touchscreen display having a resolution of 1440*2960 pixels. It is powered by Samsung Exynos 8895 processor and is backed 3,000mAh non-removable battery. Speaking of its camera, it comes with a 12-megapixel primary camera with f/1.7 aperture and an 8-megapixel secondary camera with autofocus. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.
It features 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded to 256GB. Apart from the aforementioned fingerprint sensor, the other sensors which the device sports are iris scanner, proximity, hall sensor, gyroscope, geomagnetic, barometer, and accelerometer.
