Suppliers increasingly confident about the Galaxy S8 featuring an iris scanner and dual camera

The Galaxy Note 7 was Samsung’s first smartphone to feature an iris scanner but sadly the phone had to be discontinued due to battery issues. We’ve already seen countless rumors and reports suggest that Samsung will opt for a dual camera system for the Galaxy S8. The company’s suppliers are now increasingly confident about the possibility of Samsung also deciding to offer the iris scanner with the Galaxy S8 as it seeks to plug its losses caused by the Galaxy Note 7.

Since Samsung doesn’t use the same camera for flagships year after year it’s highly likely that improvements to the camera will be made. For now, it’s believed that the Galaxy S8 will feature a dual camera which will help suppliers and module makers increase their revenue. That’s because the setup will require two separate camera modules as well as multiple high-end and low-end components aside from the two lenses.

The iris scanner was truly one of the biggest features of the Galaxy Note 7 and that might be the case for the Galaxy S8 as well. Samsung is reportedly going to stick with the same suppliers that supplied it with the iris scanner for the Galaxy Note 7. The company was working with partners to build more solutions that use the iris scanner but that has now been put on the backburner as Samsung no longer has a device in the market with this biometric technology. We can expect the company to show off some of these solutions when it comes out with the Galaxy S8, provided it does have an iris scanner because nothing is known for sure now about its next flagship as Samsung hasn’t confirmed anything about the Galaxy S8 yet.

This is really nothing new. Note 7 had iris scanner there it’s given that s8 will have more refined mode.

Same for the dual camera as iPhone 7 has one. They won’t fall behind on that too.

Key things that will be interesting will be the screen resolution and if they do keep the base memory as 64gb.

Hopefully they will change the look of the phone as the s6/7 look is getting boring

Firstly, the best thing that could happen to Samsung would be for Sammobile to lose its negativity. Certainly cover the stories “in fact” but leave the persistent nagging to Apple fanboys. Secondly, quit speculating on phone modifications or additions six months out from a new model. You have no idea what you’re talking about and it only makes this website less professional and less valuable to people who openly support Samsung and would encourage them to further greatness. You said “We’ve already seen countless rumours and reports suggest that Samsung will opt for a dual camera system for the Galaxy… Read more »

Most of the stuff here is just click-bait… you never realized it?

Most websites get their income from advertisements. That requires users visiting the site. That requires tons of articles, the more clickbait friendly, the better. That means 99% of the content is low quality made-up rumours or baseless speculation.

It’s just the way it works.
