Samsung’s next Note-phablet, which is expected to be named Galaxy Note 7 edge, according to the latest rumors will be equipped with two cameras back in style with the LG G5.
The rumors about the upcoming Note-phablet from Samsung stepped up gradually in step with a possible launch nears. First, it was reported that Samsung tested a configuration with and without screen, after which the Samsung later decided to go with the curved screen.
Then went the rumors that the South Korean manufacturer would change the generation number on it, so that it follows the Galaxy S series. With the curved screen the next Note is expected to be named Galaxy Note 7 edge, but it is not today’s big news.
On the other hand, it is that Samsung according to I4U website choose to equip the future Galaxy Note 7 edge with two bagkameraer-so in a dual-camera setup. There are indications that it will be one of this year’s major features, where LG G5 and Huawei P9 already has two camera sensors in the back, but implemented in two different ways.
Samsung looks to go the same way as the LG, which is to say that the one sensor will act as the primary camera sensor, while the other will be with wide angle, so you can grab a far larger area of your subject.
The Samsung jumps on the bandwagon should probably be seen as a response to Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 Plus, which in all probability also gets two camera sensors. Here is believed the secondary camera sensor, however, to be equipped with 2-3 times optical zoom, so you can get razor sharp images even from afar, where digital zoom will be short and instead worsen the picture quality.
