The Galaxy Note 8 became the first handset to be launched by Samsung that sports a dual-camera setup on the back. The dual rear camera is one of the key features of the latest phablet and it may be available in more upcoming Samsung devices. A leak from a Thailand publication suggests that Samsung may already be in the midst of launching its second dual-camera sporting handset in the market.

New Samsung device with dual rear facing cameras

According to Thai Mobile Center, the South Korean company is poised to launch its latest upper mid-range handset, the Galaxy J7+, in the Asian markets. As the Galaxy J7 is available in the U.S.

via retailers such as Wal-mart and Best Buy, smartphone fans may expect the Galaxy J7+ to hit U.S. shelves in the near term. Apart from sporting above average specs and features, the rumored phone is being touted as the second Samsung device to come with two cameras on its back. The leak reveals that one camera has a 13-megapixel lens, while the other one will include a 5-megapixel sensor. Both of these snappers will take advantage of the new ISOCELL technology.

The 13-megapixel sensor will sport an aperture of f/1.7, while the secondary 5-megapixel lens will feature an aperture of f/1.9. The Live Focus portrait mode that was announced alongside the Galaxy Note 8 is also expected to be found in this impending mid-tier handset. Live Focus refers to the ability of the lens to click the picture of an object or person in the foreground while blurring out the background.

This is a nifty little addition, especially in those cases when the background does not offer anything to enhance the overall picture quality.

Other leaked specs of the phone

The mid-range handset is expected to sport a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, which is powered by a 2.39 GHz octa core processor. It will boast 4 GB of RAM and come with 32 GB of internal storage, which can obviously be expanded using a microSD card. The handset will run on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS and will be supported by a 3,000 mAh battery. The Galaxy J7+ may also sport a 16-megapixel selfie camera with an aperture of f/1.9.

Samsung is also expected to include support for Bixby in the handset. It will be available in three shades, namely black, pink, and gold. Although the smartphone is being touted to be released in the South Asian markets only, it would not be surprising to see the same handset being released in the United States as well, most likely under a different name. There is currently no information regarding the price of the handset. However, being a mid-range handset, it should have an affordable price.
