Samsung trademarks ‘LightUp Camera’ for the Galaxy S8’s dual camera
There has been some speculation recently that Samsung is going to introduce a dual camera setup with the Galaxy S8, a report out of Korea that predicted huge hardware changes for the Galaxy S8 also mentioned the dual camera. Samsung has now filed for two trademark registrations in South Korea for “LightUp Camera” and “Light+ Camera,” it’s likely that these trademarks will be associated with the Galaxy S8’s dual camera in some way.
The description in the trademark filings for both monikers reads “Camera Sensor for use in enhancing the brightness and clearness of digital images and photographs taken in low-light environments.” That’s basically what the secondary camera in a dual camera setup is supposed to do. Rumor has it that the Galaxy S8’s dual camera is going to feature one 16-megapixel sensor and another 8-megapixel sensor for a better photography experience overall with particular improvements being noticed in low light performance. The Galaxy S8 will be out in the first quarter of 2017.
