Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ has just entered the Indian territory and rumours about the next flagship – Samsung’s Note, have startedfloating. As per an investor note obtained by 9to5Google, Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities has claimed that Samsung will bank heavily on the Galaxy Note 8 camera and it will be “the most important upgrade” after Samsung failed to do the same with the Galaxy Note 7 last year.
Kuo claims that the device will have a 12-megapixel wide-angle CIS (CMOS image sensors)supporting dual photodiode to absorb more light for better low-light shots and a 13-megapixel telephoto CIS with dual 6P technology and supporting 3X zoom. Both the sensors support Optical Image Stabilization as well.
Kuo, further added, “Tthe camera setup on the Galaxy Note 8 to be much better than on the iPhone 7 Plus which also sports a telephoto lens. “[The] Note 8’s dual-camera will be much better than that of iPhone 7 Plus, and likely match that of OLED iPhone.”
The leaked image shows that the Note 8 might sport a vertical dual-camera setup at the back. Apart from the camera, the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 is likely to follow the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio on a massive 6.4-inch Quad HD+ display (1440 x 2960 pixels) although previous rumours suggested that Samsung might go for a 4K display which wouldn’t make much sense, in our opinion. Besides, we expect a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 chip inside powering the device along with their respective GPUs.
Interestingly, previous rumours of Samsung dropping the Note lineup now seems to be washed out. With no major upgrades on Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, in terms of camera, the South Korean giant is certainly eyeing the Note lineup for a game-changing camera setup.
