In addition to the company's existing patents on dual camera technology, Samsung has recently filed a new one that describes a thinner dual camera setup that also provides better low light performance when compared to existing solutions.

Although Samsung is far behind other brands when it comes to launching handsets that use a dual camera setup on their back or even for selfies, the South Korean giant owns a few patents describing dual camera technology. Maybe they just spend the time to refine the dual camera technology for now, looking to launch it to provide the best solution on the market, because a new such patent has just surfaced online.

The patent carries a rather long name - "Camera module-including multi-lens and electronic device having the same" - but the details make it all quite clear. The description reveals a thinner module than current similar solutions, also providing better performance when used in low light conditions. Taking it all to the next level, this dual camera setup would also be capable of shooting 3D images and capturing the dimensions and distances to integrate into the corresponding file as well.

Later this week we should find out if at least the Galaxy S8 Plus comes with a dual camera setup, but it looks like Samsung will not use a dual camera setup for the Galaxy S8 or its Plus sibling. All hopes for a Samsung handset with a dual camera on its back lie with the Galaxy Note 8 for now, but that remains to be seen as well.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
