Samsung is expected to unveil their upcoming Galaxy Note 8 phablet smartphone anytime this year. There are many rumors regarding the Galaxy Note 8, one of which seems to be confirmed by a South Korean publication.

About a month before, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that not only would the Galaxy Note 8 feature a dual camera, but that it would "be much better than that of iPhone 7 Plus, and likely match that of OLED iPhone." Apparently, the famous analyst predicted the camera to be the most significant upgrade on the Galaxy Note 8, as reported by BGR.

However, on Friday, Korean publication MK News has confirmed this assertion with a report of its own. An industry source said to them that Samsung is "reviewing the benefits of dual cameras internally and will launch products within the year." This is no surprise, especially in view of last week's leak that featured an image of the upcoming Galaxy C with a dual-lens camera.

Samsung seems to be concentrating primarily on the camera division for the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone by reviewing the benefits of implementing a dual camera. This seems to be a popular new trend in the industry with a lot of different smartphone manufacturers incorporating the same for their new smartphones hoping it will gather a much bigger audience than what is expected. However, it's right now unclear on whether such a move is going to stay for a long time or fade away quickly.

Samsung has exact plans to reintroduce a new device to the Galaxy 'Note' lineup with the release of Galaxy Note 8 device.  The release date for the new smartphone from Samsung might be days away from being launched but Samsung has confirmed previously that they do plan to launch another flagship later this year which is presumably the Galaxy Note 8 only.
