More than just a few rumors claimed that Samsung's Galaxy S8 flagships would be the first handsets of this South Korean giant to use a dual camera setup. Sadly, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are both shipping already, and none of them has such a feature. Now, we hear about a new Note phablet that is expected to offer a dual camera setup.

According to market analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, both Galaxy S8 flagships available are selling better than expected and the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 will offer a dual-camera setup with 3X optical zoom, 12 MP wide-angle CIS with 2PD and 13 MP telephoto CIS, dual OIS and dual 6P lenses. He also claims that the "Note 8’s dual-camera will be much better than that of iPhone 7 Plus, and likely match that of OLED iPhone."

Kuo also mentioned other features of the upcoming 6.4-inch phablet, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 processor (depending on region), a rear-facing fingerprint reader, and a QHD+ OLED screen.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
