Rumours: Exynos 9 teaser hints that the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 Plus or Note 8 may have a dual rear camera?Last Updated: Mar 07, 2017
The official Samsung Exynos twitter recently tweeted a teaser image highlighting Dual ISP (Image Signal Processor) for their Exynos 9 chipset, indicating dual rear cameras. The Exynos 8895 is also part of this chipset and is slated to be used in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus (set to be announced near the end of the month). So does that mean that the Galaxy S8 could have surprise dual rear cameras, which so far according to all other leaks has not appeared at all? It might happen, but we're thinking that the Dual ISP and dual cameras would probably be coming for the Galaxy Note 8 as it would help differentiate it from the iris scanner packing Galaxy S8.

Contrary to reports shared online, it seems that Samsung has no intention of killing off its Note series of smartphones, if the report we saw is true. We will see the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in 2017, and if the report is right, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 owners will get a big discount on the new model with a special upgrade programme.
