Ming-Chi Kuo says to expect a dual camera setup for the Samsung Galaxy S9

Ming-Chi Kuo says to expect a dual camera setup for the Samsung Galaxy S9
Last month, an analyst from Hana Financial Investment named Kim Rok-ho, said that he expects the Samsung Galaxy S9 to feature a dual camera setup. Another analyst, Park Hyug-woo from Shinhan Investment, predicted that dual cameras will appear on the back of both the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. With all due respect to those two analysts, the tech world doesn't get terribly excited until such a proclamation comes from an analyst with a proven track record, like KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo.

While Kuo is known for his fabulous calls on Apple devices, the analyst has lately tuned his crystal ball to the Samsung channel. Today, the KGI Securities analyst forecast that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will feature a rear-facing dual camera setup. While that is hardly an earth shattering call, especially in light of the dual snappers found on the just unveiled Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Kuo's track record solidifies the weight of his prediction.

One gutsy call that he made earlier this month involves the fingerprint scanners on the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy Note 9. Kuo said that the former model will keep the status quo for 2019, which means that the fingerprint scanner will be found on the back of Sammy's 2019 flagship phone. But the analyst says that the first Samsung model to employ a fingerprint scanner embedded under the display will be the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

Today's note to KGI clients says that Samsung is working with fabless semiconductor company Himax and Egis to produce the embedded fingerprint scanner for the Galaxy Note 9. It also mentions that the firm expects Samsung to ship 12 million to 14 million units of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in 2017.

Not an Android guy, also not an iOS guy. I am a tech guy, I love tech in general regardless of what brand. You can't see from my perspective sadly, you blind fanboys can't comprehend non-fanboyism, too much for your brains.

He only does it just look to unbiased, kinda like you. I guess PA's that big of deal for you two fakers lol.

LOL, only two people here label me fake, an Apple sheep, and you, a blind Samsung fanboy. Do you know what you two have in common? You're both childish, narrow minded, and have tiny brains that cannot comprehend the fact that people can be non-fanboys. That is why you are so predictable, you automatically label those who disagree with you as trolls or fanboys from the other side.

I think Samsung knows better than not to include a dual camera with the S9, that would be a serious feature gap between model series.

It's not completely unreasonable to think that Samsung may have wanted to pull an Apple move, and keep the dual camera (just like the stylus) a Note exclusive, to create more of a divide between the 'S' and the 'Note' series. I don't think it was ever very likely, but not completely unreasonable given that they have two separate flagship models, and need more ways to differentiate them. How many on this website alone have called the Note "an S8+ with a stylus"? I'm sure that there were meetings at Samsung talking about whether to keep the dual camera a "Note thing" or not. Glad to hear that they won't.

I predict the note 9 will have a spen and a power button, with a earpiece to hear phone calls...
