Galaxy Note 8 dual camera system predicted by KGI analyst

Samsung confirmed last year that despite the failure that it suffered with the Galaxy Note 7 it was going to launch a new phablet in 2017. Since then, we’ve often heard rumors about the Galaxy Note 8 and now we have a prediction from renowned KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who is normally known for his predictions about Apple’s products.

Kuo claims that the Galaxy Note 8 is going to be Samsung’s first smartphone with a dual camera system on the back, going so far as to call it the “most important upgrade” in the Galaxy Note 8. The analyst also predicts that the dual cameras will feature 3x optical zoom, 12-megapixel wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiode (2PD), 13MP telephoto CIS, dual 6P lenses and dual Optical Image Stabilization.

He even claims that the Galaxy Note 8′s dual camera system is going to be “much better than that of the iPhone 7 Plus” and may even match the one Apple opts for the OLED iPhone that it’s due to launch later this year.

It’s not surprising to see that Kuo is making this prediction given that the Galaxy S8 was also expected to feature a dual camera system at one point in time. We even saw images of a Galaxy S8+ prototype recently which featured a dual camera system on the back.

Samsung did patent a thinner dual camera system recently which revealed that the company is interested in making its own dual camera system so it remains a possibility that we might see it in the Galaxy Note 8. It’s not set it stone just yet but it’s not impossible either.

If that’s what the Note 8 is going to emphasise on Q3 of this year, then wonder what the S9 may bring? Still looking forward to the Galaxy S8 hehe!

Finally a phone with Wide angle camera (16:9)
4:3 is useless

If Samsung constantly releases 2 or more variants of the S, A, C, J series why not of the Note series like it did with Note 4 / 4 edge in 2014?
My thoughts;

•Note 8P (Premium)
-IP68 certificate
-6.4 inch
-2990×1440 (or 4K) infinity curved display
-Glass back
-4000-4500 mAh battery
-And the rest of the rumoured software updates including the dual camera set up

•Note 8L (Light)
-IP67 certificate
-5.7 or 6 inch
-2560×1440 flat screen with infinity display (or not)
-Plastic back with removable battery
-3200-3500 mAh battery
- And the rest of the rumoured software updates including dual camera set up (or not as long as the camera is really good like in the S8)

Alternatively transform the Note 7 into the Note 8L. Just ditch the glass back and replace it with a nice textured grippy plastic back, removable battery and IP67 certificate.

Flagship should not be renamed as LIGHT .. also removable battery is not coming anyday bcoz fake 3rd party batteries were troublesome for samsung

Light was just an example they can choose any other name. It could even be just Note 8 and Note 8P but two variants to please different costumers, the ones who want a premium look and feel and the ones (like me) who couldn’t care about it. Third party USB type C cables have been and still are more troublesome and it’s being adopted more and more by everyone.

All i want for samsung is the battery improvement. The phone camera is the best even if it is not dual. (Dual camera now, next year? Triple camera? I dont get it. If i want a good camera that will be used as a professional camera, i will just buy a DSLR camera.

Please Samsung don’t! Hey who wants 4K display over gimmicky dual lens camera? I swear to you in 2 years from now..dual lens will disapper from the market!
Please Samsung don’t follow this absurd gimmick trend! Here’s what fans actually wants: same design, 4K display, UFS card reader, DDR4x, 4000 mah battery, improved hardware camera, even more light UI and fingerprint sensor inside of the display

I do wish for 4K screen as now we have the option to reduce the screen resolution. 4K will be useful for VR.
As for dual lens, I used to think that there’s no point having 2 lenses, but lately I find myself needing to capture things in a distance but zoomed in. Cropping a 12MP image just won’t cut it, and I think the secondary lens with longer focal length for “zoom” is needed.

I agree with you only about that 4k is maybe for VR fans… For people like me i don’t even care about 4k on a phone… It will only waste your battery life.

Hopefully, Samsung will get it right with the Note 8

Same here in Germany. I had the most amazing Note edge, since then I am changing my phone every 6-8 months. S6 edge, s6 edge+, s7 edge, iPhone 7 plus. No phone is as good as the Note series. I will go for the S8+ now and then for the note 8. I will keep it until note 9. :)
