Today, however, a Weibo tipster with a decent track record claims that Samsung has shelved the dual camera idea, and will release the Galaxy S8 with a single camera lens. It remains to be seen what camera combo we are to be graced with when Samsung launches the S8, but if the dual setup has been in play and then subsequently put on the backburner, one can't help but wonder what would be the reason.
Samsung might have made a cost-benefit analysis, and sniffed at the added value of two camera lenses compared to what is already a great camera used on its flagship series. It might also have determined that a dual combo with the desired quality will be complicated to make en masse and on time. The source also doesn't specify if the dual-lens plans have been ditched for both the eventual smaller and larger models of the S8. In any case, we remain curious as to what camera enhancements would finally end up in the S8, dual setup or not.
