Galaxy S7

If you pay attention to every single wild rumor making the early rounds as far as Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple iPhone 8 upgrades are concerned, the two 2017 flagship devices may as well not require sequels for a good few years.

But we know better than to expect all the hot new features built into this next generation of spotlight-hogging Android and iOS powerhouses. They’ll definitely change a couple of things about their predecessors, possibly in a radical way, but it’s always wise of OEMs to keep one or two aces up the sleeve.

Case in point, we’re now hearing word of a prospective Samsung dual camera adoption delay until 2018 or at least H2 2017. That’s right, a Weibo tipster, albeit not a particularly credible one, believes the Galaxy S8 will “continue to adhere to the single-camera war.” Presumably, before the S9 or perhaps Note 8 finally dabble in the whole bokeh/telephoto/optical zoom/3D functionality game.

It’s important to remember however that some past rumors called for an iPhone 7 Plus-like GS8 strategy, and maybe this fresh gossip lends more credence to the dual-model theory, with curved screens all around, and cam technology separation.

In other words, it’s still possible the 6.2-inch or so Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, minimal bezels and all, will double down on rear-facing snappers. Then again, virtually anything is possible, really.
