Samsung Galaxy S8 could include UHD display and dual rear cameras
Samsung only recently launched its Galaxy S7 series to worldwide fanfare, but rumors originating from China are already speculating about the inevitable successor. Samsung will very likely unveil the Galaxy S8 sometime next year and the Chinese source claims to have close ties to those from the industry on the matter.
Accordingly, the Galaxy S8 may be coming with dual rear cameras similar to the Leica cameras on the recent Huawei P9. Additionally, the smartphone could incorporate a 4K UHD panel for a superior VR experience. It's worth noting that Samsung showed off both a retractable 5.7-inch FHD panel and a 5.5-inch UHD panel at this year's Display Week 2016.
The source does not specify whether or not the dual cameras would simply be two separate lenses or two individual sensors altogether. They may, however, have improved HDR support and Smart Zoom functionality with development help from Samsung Electro-Mechanics (Semco). The Galaxy S8 series should also include a USB Type-C port as standard unlike on the current generation.
