Samsung is the top smartphone manufacturer in the world – and for a very good reason. Most of the companies simply add a feature on their devices with the sole intention of selling the phone as much as possible and gain a lot of profit from it. Refining is not given meticulous attention in such cases. Samsung has an entirely different approach – they take their time to perfect a technology and bring a device that’s irresistible. The latest news that we have fetched is an almost confirmation that the Galaxy Note will be featuring a 13MP+12MP dual camera setup. Now this isn’t a new thing, and the rumours had begun long ago, but this report adds up to our hypothesis about the device, and we now strongly believe that we might get to see a dual camera setup.

The camera setup will be derived from the existing camera on the Galaxy S8 which is a 12MP camera. The camera will have a resolving power of 13MP+12MP with Phase Detection Autofocus and 4-axis Optical Image Stabilization. The cameras will be placed loosely enough that they move in compensation when the phone moves, so as to stabilise the image. The lens used will have f/1.7 aperture and a 26mm focal length. This helps improve night time photography quality dramatically.

Having a dual lens system will also reportedly allow for up to 3X optical zoom. The greatest advantage of optical zooming ability is that you don’t lose details, when you take photos, as opposed to digital zoom. They say two eyes are always better than one. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will fit the criterion exactly.

On the video front, the camera system will be capable of capturing 4K videos, 2160p@30fps, 1080p@30fps, 1080p@60fps, take snaps during video recording, and capture FHD slow motion videos @ 120fps. The video quality will be as good as image quality here. There will be no compromise on the video quality.

Not long ago, we had reported of another phone the C10 Pro to be in the development phase. The C10 Pro will most probably incorporate a similar setup; it is however not yet clear whether Samsung will launch the C10 before the Note 8 or will they be launching both of them simultaneously. Since there is no update yet on the launch dates of the two devices, we cannot comment right away as to which one will be the first Samsung device to come with a dual camera.

Other minor specs apart from a Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB RAM and a dual camera include a USB-C v1.0 port, Bluetooth v5.0 and a promise of a non-exploding battery. We couldn’t be more excited about its launch.
