Many companies are equipping their smartphones with a Dual Camera setup on the back, and this feature is slowly becoming a standard for mid-tiered and high-end devices. Much like the fingerprint sensor has made its way to all modern-day handsets, so is the dual camera module expected to do in the future. Samsung [VIDEO] has been one of the few major smartphone [VIDEO] companies that have delayed debuting this feature in its devices.

Many smartphone fans expected the company's flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, to come with the dual camera feature, but strangely Samsung decided against housing the same in these handsets.

Instead, the South Korean company launched its first dual camera module with the Galaxy Note 8, which they unveiled on August 23. A 9to5 Google report now suggests that the dual camera setup will become a standard feature in all future premium Samsung handsets.

Dual camera inclusion

There have been rumors of the company intending to add the same configuration in its 2018 Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9, but these reports did not come from a dependable source on previous occasions. On August 24, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the dual rear camera feature would be present in the Galaxy S9, expected to be launched in the first half of next year. While it is true that Kuo is mainly regarded as a dependable leakster when it comes Apple products, he has in recent times also started making such predictions for Samsung handsets as well.

Kuo did not specify any of the features of the dual camera module that is expected to arrive with the Galaxy S9, but it is possible that the impending handset will come with the same specifications as the Galaxy Note 8. The phablet offers two 12-megapixel sensors on the back, one of the cameras acting as a telephoto lens. This setup has been shown to work well with the Galaxy Note 8, so the same may be expected of the Galaxy S9.

Other revelations by Kuo

The analyst also predicted that the Galaxy Note 8 would ship around 12 to 14 million units by the end of 2017. He also noted that Samsung is working with Himax and Egis to develop the under-display fingerprint sensor. Previous reports have indicated that Samsung will stick to rear-mounted fingerprint sensors for the Galaxy S9, but will introduce under the display sensors in the Galaxy Note 9 next year. It is still too early to speculate about the specs and features of the Galaxy S9 or the Galaxy Note 9, but it is still exciting to learn how Samsung is progressing on the development of these handsets.
