Routinely, Samsung usually unifies its product line to provide marketing clarity to its customers and may, therefore, ditch the "Edge" moniker for this year's Note to ensure one Galaxy Note 7 variant instead of two.

Now, a rumor from China is stating that the successor of the highly popular Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S8, will sport a dual camera setup too. It is reported some Samsung fans think the Galaxy Note 6 is a generation behind the Galaxy S7.

For those unaware, Samsung rebranded the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 to Samsung Galaxy Note 7. However, if the South Korean company launches the Galaxy Note 6/7 edge with a dual camera then it will be highly likely for the Galaxy S8 to be equipped with the same camera setup. In comparison, the Galaxy S7 features a display with 2,560 x 1,440 resolution versus the Galaxy S8 which will have 3,840 x 2,160 pixels if the rumors were true.

Now, WCCF Tech cites Chinese sources and reports that Semco is also making dual camera lens for Samsung's first 2017 flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. But it is expected, due to a 4K display and increased camera requirements, the phone will also carry a bigger battery. A previous report from The Inquisitr noted that these two Samsung smartphones are the first to feature dual pixel technology.

There are gossips surrounding the next iteration of the flagship smartphone - Galaxy S8 as well. Some rumors have pegged the Galaxy Note 7's battery size at 4,000mAh, which would suffice for all-day usage and the ability to be on a call for hours at a time without fear of losing a charge. Samsung is invested in the space with its Gear VR, so a move to 4K screens would be no great surprise.

Samsung previously displayed a 5.5-inch 4K display at the Display Week conference in San Francisco, California in May.

IPhone offers a 64-bit A9 processor, helped by the M9 Motion secondary one, while Samsung chose a Snapdragon 820 for the USA version and an Exynos 8890 for the worldwide one. However, the phone is rumoured to carry a Snapdragon 830 processor, which is still in production.

What would you like to see from Samsung's Galaxy S8? Since both the last flagships, S6, and S7, shared similar designs, we can expect the company to take a step forward and deliver something new.
