The next big smartphone release for Samsung is due later this year in the Galaxy Note 6, which is reportedly going to be called the Note 7 edge. New leaks suggest it will be packing a dual camera system.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 edge, according to industry sources speaking to China’s Zol, will have a dual camera made by Samsung. The site says that Samsung Electro-Mechanics (Semco) appears to be working on a dual camera lens system that will first appear in the Note 7 edge.
Apple is also reportedly going to feature a dual camera system in its iPhone 7 Plus. This larger iPhone is likely what Samsung is aiming to directly compete with, hence skipping the Note 6 name and jumping right to the Note 7.
Dual cameras have already appeared in phones like the Huawei P9 and HTC One so other companies jumping on this bandwagon is not a surprise.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 edge is expected to sport an all metal build with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with QHD resolution, Snapdragon and Exynos variants with 6GB of RAM, plus a 4000mAh battery with USB 3.1.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 7 edge in August or at its Unpacked event before IFA 2016 is early September.
