Galaxy Note 8’s dual-camera rumored to be better than others

Home / News / Galaxy Note 8’s dual-camera rumored to be better than others

Thanks to all the leaks and reports in the past few weeks, we’re confident that Samsung will debut the Galaxy Note 8 with a dual-camera system. Moreover, the company showcased its new ISOCELL Dual camera sensor yesterday at MWC 2017 Shanghai, giving more credibility to all those Galaxy Note 8 rumors. Now, we’ve heard some great things about the Galaxy Note 8’s dual-camera.

According to an insider, the Galaxy Note 8’s dual-camera will offer better image quality and better background defocus (in portrait mode) than competing smartphones with similar dual-camera solutions. Samsung is expected to use a dual 13MP+13MP (RGB+Monochrome) camera setup with f/2.0 lens and OIS on the Galaxy Note 8 for improved colours and sharpness as well as reduced noise.

The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be announced sometime in August with a 6.3-inch Infinity Display, Exynos 8895 processor, 6GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 3300 mAh battery. The phone is also expected to continue offering an iris scanner, a rear-placed fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack that we saw with the Galaxy S8.

Wasn’t OnePlus screaming from the rooftops about their supposedly superior dual camera? Give me the FPS on the front or it is a no buy anyhow.

Well rather than a 13 mp camera they should at least provide a 20 mp as it would be better to zoom/crop in much further

No, not possible. The sensors shown yesterday had very small pixel size (1.12), which is much smaller than S8 pixel size (1.40). It’s almost impossible to get better photos with a smaller pixel size.

How about the Monochrome sensor on the second camera? It can be more sensitive to low light than on the previous one-camera setup (S8). So results will be a little less light (I agree with that) but less noise too. So overall better pictures than before. Like Leica does on the Huawei Mate 9. And those are really great pics!

Monochrome will not have less noise. I don’t see any logic for less noise with Monochrome sensor. At max, there could be slightly better dynamic range. Definitely won’t compensate for the such a smaller pixel size.

f.2.0 but in an improved, Dual 13MP, ISOCELL cameras.
Must be better than f1.7 12MP single camera I guess…

Usually it isn’t. MP’s aren’t everything and dual camera’s are the new fad.

I’ve been using the S8+ since release, coming from an S6 edge+ and I have to say, I HATE that the best image quality is a 4:3 aspect ratio! Especially when trying to take a scenic shot or taking a pic of someone and you can’t get any of the background in! It’s so stupid. Not everyone uploads their pics to Instagram!

It’s all to do with the shape of the sensor, which in the S7 and S8 lines has an 4:3 aspect ratio. If you want wider shots at a higher resolution your best bet is to go onto ebay and buy an S6; they had a 16:9 sensor.

You can easily change the picture resolution to a 16:9 aspect ratio in the camera settings menu. Which doesn’t lower the quality of the picture by much. I’ve done it on my Note 4, and ever picture I’ve taken is in a much lower resolution than the highest resolution available. They all look great.

16:9 takes it down to a 9MP image. And there definitely is a quality difference. There’s a difference from the S6s 16MP images. I don’t understand why they don’t bump the MP up. It’s not everything but it sure makes for a better photo a lot of the time.
