The Galaxy S8 might not copy the dual lens camera from iPhone 7

Samsung may find inspiration for the Galaxy S8 in several iPhone 7 features and iPhone 8 rumors.

According to a Weibo user who has a history of leaking details about unreleased mobile devices, the Galaxy S8 may feature a single lens camera on the back rather than a dual lens camera like the one found on the iPhone 7 Plus.

Samsung is rumored to be prepping a pair of new Galaxy S8 models that will launch next year, including a regular S8 and a phablet model.

There’s also one other reason for Samsung to release a Galaxy S8 phablet next year: the terrible fate of the Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung may be looking to target Galaxy Note 7 fans with a brand new large-screen smartphone.

With that in mind, it would not be surprising to see a regular Galaxy S8 ship with a single lens rear camera setup just like the iPhone 7.

The most recent rumors concerning the iPhone 8 claim that Apple will keep the dual lens camera setup in place in the iPhone 8 Plus and the new OLED iPhone 8, while the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 8 sticks with a single-lens camera.
