Galaxy S9 to launch with one of the Note 8’s best features

When the Galaxy S9 launches next year, one of its newest features will be ripped right from the Galaxy Note 8.

According to murmurs from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who Apple fans will know for tipping off new iPhone features, next year’s Galaxy S9 will sport a dual-camera setup. Samsung recently introduced the Galaxy Note 8, and one of its headlining features is a dual-camera setup that offers two 12-megapixel cameras, both of which support optical image stabilization.

Given market trends, Kuo’s note shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The dual-camera setup has become increasingly popular among manufacturers, having shown up in devices like the iPhone, LG G6, and OnePlus 5, among many others.

We’re still several months away from the Galaxy S9’s anticipated spring 2018 launch, so anything can change between now and then. That being said, rumors about the device have picked up over the past few weeks, with one recent report claiming the Galaxy S9 would support mods similar to the Essential Phone.

Kuo’s report doesn’t mention any other details about what to expect from the Galaxy S9, but it was always a sure bet the handset would feature a dual-camera setup.

Speaking of which, we got to spend time with the new camera arrangement featured in the Galaxy Note 8, which you can check out in our first impressions video below.
