Galaxy S8 with dual cameras pictured yet again

There were a lot of rumors in the days leading up to the Galaxy S8’s launch about the new flagship featuring a dual camera system at the back. It was predicted to be the first smartphone from Samsung to feature dual cameras. Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy S8 on March 29 and subsequently proved the rumors wrong.

However, it’s no secret that Samsung tested prototypes of the Galaxy S8 with a dual camera system. We’ve seen images of the prototype in the past as well. Earlier today, a couple of images were leaked online from China via Weibo showing us another unit that features a dual camera. It doesn’t feature a fingerprint sensor at the back like the Galaxy S8 actually does.

This goes to show that those rumors were not without merit. We did report earlier this year that Samsung was testing multiple prototypes of the Galaxy S8 and all of the rumors were based on them. Thus it was difficult to be sure about anything. For the longest time, the rumor mill was convinced that the dual camera setup would make the cut.

We know now that it didn’t. Perhaps Samsung felt that the technology wasn’t ready yet or that it wasn’t a good fit for the Galaxy S8. We’re hearing that the dual camera setup will make its way to the Galaxy Note 8, though, and that would certainly be a welcome addition on the new phablet.

Easy reason why the s8 didn’t get the dual camera was because the FPS had to be placed in the back at the last minute. Therefore had to sacrifice the dual camera set up and use the free space for the FPS.

I don’t mean any disrespect to the author of this article but I don’t see any difference with the old article already posted.
It’s just a waste of time writing articles such as this and kept pointing out how the galaxy s8/s8+ came out without the dual camera setup.

Don’t get me wrong. I love coming over here at sammobile to get the latest news about sammy.
And I’ll tell you frankly, reading articles like this which obviously is just a “repeat” version of an old article is really boring.

We understand, but this was a slightly clearer look at how the S8 with a dual camera might have looked, and we thought it warranted coverage. Gotta keep the news flowing, haha.
