The people that keep saying 2x zoom isn't optical or lossless, and the people saying the 2nd camera is a gimmick, clearly have little camera knowledge and have never used a real camera. How does a camera zoom in? By changing the focal length, go pick a camera up and learn. Why would you want to do that? Because you can't always stand next to what you're photographing, you want it to appear as though you are closer than you are without loss of detail. How is it lossless zoom? By using 2 individual cameras at different focal lengths. You can't change the camera lens so you have 2 cameras with different lenses. From my point of view dual cameras is the biggest improvement in smartphone photography in years.

It's not zoom. It's two different cameras.

I guess the user interface will allow you to zoom so you'd get a blend of optical and digital zoom from 1x to 3x. They could just have a toggle from 1x to 2x but that'd be a bit rubbish.

It's 2x zoom same as iPhone 7 plus telephoto nothing new. The question is note 8 going to get Android O after all these hype or android O comes to note 8 after galaxy s8 release?!.

Let see. My bad galaxy S9 release, I think LG going to release V30 or V30 plus (might be for Korean market only same as G6 plus) with Android O since they're going to build pixel 2 xl.
