Analysts: Note 8, Galaxy S9 and Note 9 will all have dual cameras
If you had any doubts that the Note 8 will land with a dual camera set, Korean security analysts are in full swing today trying to dispel them. It seems that Samsung Electro-Mechanics, the department that is in charge of mobile camera modules, is expected to have blowout quarters going forward, riding on the coattails of Samsung's switch to dual cameras for its phones.

According to Kim Rok-ho, an analyst from Hana Financial Investment: "Supplies of dual camera modules for Samsung Electronics’ flagship model starting in the latter half this year will also contribute to Samsung Electro-Mechanics’ profits next year." The Note 8 is expected to have a 12MP telephoto lens and a 13MP wide-angle set to improve low-light performance, for 3D-mapping, and distance measurements. A Samsung dual-camera patent also indicates optical stabilization, and 3x zooming abilities, while reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has tipped that the Note 8 sensors may offer better performance than the dual camera phones currently on the market.

We can't wait for our first camera tests with the Note 8 then, but in the meantime Park Hyug-woo, an analyst from Shinhan Investment, also claims that the Electro-Mechanics division will keep posting high profits in the next two years, and guess which phones will be behind that. "The Galaxy S9 and Note 9 will likely be fitted with a dual-lens camera and some of the firm’s divisions, including the inductance capacitance resistance unit, will post improved profits," adds Mr Park to pad his prediction that Samsung Electro-Mechanics's revenue may hit about $10 billion in 2019. There you have it, Samsung may be late to the dual camera bandwagon, but is apparently adamant to jump on it full steam, and hopefully the wait will mean better mobile cameras for us mortal users.
