Prior to the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8, there were rumors abound with regards to the handset’s specs and features. One of the alleged specs of the phone was that it could come with a dual camera setup similar to what other Android OEMs have done in the past, and also what Apple has done with the iPhone 7 Plus.

However that obviously did not pan out, although alleged photos of prototypes did suggest that Samsung was exploring the feature at one point. That being said, a new report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed that he believes that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could introduce the feature.

According to Kuo, he believes that the dual camera will be the most import upgrade with regards to the handset’s features. He claims that the cameras will feature 3x optical zoom, a 12MP wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiode, a 13MP telephoto CIS, dual 6P lenses and both lenses are expected to feature OIS as well.

Kuo also states that the Note 8’s camera will be much better compared to that of the iPhone 7 Plus, but he expects that Apple’s OLED iPhone’s cameras should be able to match it. Take it with a grain of salt, but if dual cameras was a feature you felt was missing from the Galaxy S8, maybe the Note 8 will be able to “fix” that.
