Samsung teases Galaxy Note 8 dual cameras in new video

By now we already know that the Galaxy Note 8 will be packing two main cameras, adopting a trend started by the likes of HTC, LG and Huawei. Now, Samsung Korea has released a teaser video ahead of the 23 August reveal date.

The teaser shows a woman using her hands as a pair of binoculars, alluding to two cameras. We then see depth-of-field effects applied to a man standing in a crowd (blurring the crowd around him) and to a figurine in a toy store (blurring the other toys).

Finally, the teaser shows a close-up photo of a woman on a hillside, before it zooms out. So what does it all mean?

The first two scenarios mean that a depth-of-field, refocus or portrait mode will almost certainly be adopted by Samsung, following the likes of HTC, Huawei and Apple.

The hillside scenario suggests we might have a telephoto camera as the second main shooter, giving lossless zoom like the iPhone 7 Plus.

For what it’s worth, telephoto cameras are generally poor performers at night, so the function would best be used during the day. Interestingly enough, the likes of Apple and OnePlus opt to crop the main camera instead of using the telephoto camera at night.

In any event, expect more details when Samsung holds its Unpacked event later this week. Check the teaser below.
