This morning a set of photos of a Samsung Galaxy S8 dual-camera setup have appeared, proper alongside rumors of one other ultimate product. This re-creation of the system could be launched not lengthy after the preliminary Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus – if it does find yourself being launched in any respect. Whereas no finalized title appears to be connected to this smartphone as but, I wouldn’t be shocked if it ended up being despatched out as a Galaxy S8 Professional – particularly given the opportunity of it being launched close to the iPhone 7s, iPhone eight, and/or iPhone Professional.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus prototype you’ll see above and under was apparently in testing earlier this 12 months. Some reviews started tapping the opportunity of a dual-lens Galaxy S8 as early as mid-2016. This type of early testing of prototypes shouldn’t be out of the atypical – seeing one in every of these gadgets developed to this stage of finality is uncommon.
The codes you’ll see on this system correspond to an precise unit – the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus TD-LTE, aka the Samsung Dream 2. This can be a system that’ll be launched in Jap Europe, Western Europe, and the Center East. On the ultimate system, the scale are the identical as that of what Samsung quoted on the reveal of the Galaxy S8: 73.four mm x 159.5 mm x eight.1 mm – and it rolls with a Samsung Exynos 9 Octa 8895M, 64bit SoC with ARM Mali-G71 GPU.
The check system you see above doesn’t essentially run that very same processor – although it’s probably it did. What higher solution to check a dual-camera setup on a Galaxy smartphone than to make use of Samsung’s personal SoC? If what we’ve been instructed about this tester system is true, the look of the again of the system was not but finalized.

UPDATE: At the very least one in every of these photos (probably the one instantly above, on the fitting), was posted by Weibo consumer Lei Ming Xuan. The unique micro-blog with the photograph was posted a while earlier final week and has since disappeared.
It’s nonetheless totally doable that the Samsung Galaxy Be aware eight can be launched with the dual-camera setup we see right here. It’d be a bit unusual, given the function distribution of high-end talents on previous Galaxy gadgets, however not totally exceptional. The primary “Edge” system from Samsung was a Galaxy Be aware-like system, in spite of everything.
