The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will most likely have a dual camera: an analysis

The much-anticipated Galaxy S8 is set to be released very soon, but will lack one of the bigger features we previously expected it to have: a dual rear camera. Still, we believe that Samsung hasn’t entirely abandoned the idea, but has rather postponed it for its other upcoming flagship, the Galaxy Note 8...

Now we're talking... Every other oem take heed... Samsung please test, re-test and re-test, and just for s#! +$ and giggles re-test the battery durability again so I don't have to return the best phone ever twice... Please and thank you... Signed anxious note user...

I hope that's not the case. Note series has always been the pinnacle of technological innovations. It S pen is one of a kind as it is offered by no one, not even Apple. During August, I had saved enough money to get myself Note7 but the unfortunate incident happened. I'm fairly positive that Note8 won't have battery issues as Samsung will try its Damndest to the device perfect. Right now, Samsung is a titan who is trying to prove something, and this mentality translates to better products 4 end users

I do not think it's necessary to have a double camera, but if it has to be, welcome.

No offense to the writer, but I don't think this article is necessary, especially when you state the entire article is pure speculation in the last paragraph lol.

Ofcourse. Lest they be swallowed by the iphone edition. Though the iphone will swallow the whole of the note and s series regardless of whatever happens anyways.... As always.

Hopefully you mean in terms of sales, because if you mean feature wise...yikes. Also, if you do mean sales, sales don't equate to a better product. Anyone with the slightest bit of intelligence knows that.

Another iOS d¡€k rider full of comments but with endless idiocy every year. Apple = idiot ass consumers.

Sigh......you fanboys are the worst. What did his or her comments have to do with Apple consumers? Why are you so insecure about Android being laggy at times?

Have you ever considered the fact that it might not be Android that is laggy, its the hardware that is not as good as compared to Apple?! I'm no expert but I think thats where the lag everybody sees comes from. Apple has better and faster hardware in form of better and faster Processor, ram, storage. Android's got a bad name due to bad hardware.

"Have you ever considered the fact that it might not be Android that is laggy, its the hardware that is not as good as compared to Apple?!" Hmm even Nexus 5 with Sd800 is silky smooth and its SOC foesn't hold a candle to SD820 and Exynos 8890. Hardware was never the problem with Android. It's the skins of manufacturers and irrelevant 3rd party apps which bloat the system and causes lag. If everyone uses stock android, they'd know that it has all come down to software optimization. Consider consoles which have inferior hardware than PC because it is able to handle games easily because of software optimization. If we make a pc with the EXACT xbox one specs, and run the same game on it, chances are that xbox one would be silky smooth in game due to software optimizations.

"Apple has better and faster hardware in form of better and faster Processor, ram, storage. Android's got a bad name due to bad hardware." Are you talking about low-end Android phones? If yes, then I'm inclined to agree (partially) with your post #16. Otherwise... SMH.

He said Android = lagOS. I highly doubt he's using Windows mobile so what other platform is there? C'mon now. Common sense.

So.......conjecture? Or should I say an assumption?

Shut up, you ugly Apple paid troll ! Your clown rotten fruity crap begs Samsung for internal hardware every year. Go learn this fact before opening your stinky unclean mouth and bashing Samsung and Android.

Note: don't say note, because if you note there is note, but wait a minute which note? did you note that?

Samsung will probably take the iphone 7 Plus approach just because of the influence it has. Sad reality! Then reviewers will be quick to point out how samsung copied.

They won't, since there is already an S8+, and Samsung can't release the same phone twice.

Oh the Note series will return. It's just too "hot" a product to be ignored. Lol

The only other phone I'm interested in, along with the (iPhone 8).

Tbh I see the second half of this year as the perfect time to purchase a new phone. The snapdragon 835 didn't make it in time, same story for snaptics optical sensor, and all the new technologies. Plus the second half of this year will bring the note 8, v30, pixel 2, possibly htc 11, and iPhone x. I can't get more excited than this!
