However with cost and profit in mind those advantages won't be worth it for us.
With they profit margin they need and what most people are willing to spend the efforts are better in using one single larger and better lemme with improved tech and a wider aperture

Just because the 7plus has dual car setup, S8 should too?
Gsm arena is pushing Apple too hard and present it like its what they do, or trash.
A glimmer of hope??? Like its the end of the world if the S8 wont copy that? And what if iphone 8 drops the extra cost, weight and opt for a slimmer design too?

These are all just rumors, so in simple words they can be true and can be not. But what is 100% sure is that Samsung must do something truly outstanding for the S8. To recover as much as possible from the Note 7 fiasco, plus the extreme competition. That includes the already established companies/ brands such as HTC (11), LG (G6) Sony, Moto, iPhone, etc. And from almost all the Chinese more than ever before, with innovative phones/ phablets such as the Xiaomi Mi Mix (& try to imagine next gen Mi Mix, soo? ). And even all the budget excellent Chinese phones such as the OnePlus (4) & ZTE Axon (8). So Samsung simply can't do nothing less than a truly amazing flagship with the S8, nothing less

i like to see s8 with the best camera and not important if it apears with dual or single camera.but would be the best like s4 to s6.i have s7 and in comparison htc 10 (the ugliest and useless phone/i hate it mre than other people/shame on htc) shots better than my great s7 in both rear and front camera. i wish s8 squashes all other mobiles in camera comparison and other parts.
viva samsung

If it comes with a replaceable battery, I will buy the S8.

Dual rear camera is nothing more than a fancy gimmick. Give me a single great camera with good low light shooting capabilities and i am sold

Anonymous, 03 Dec 2016ips is better than the burn-in oledThat's why your lord and saviour apple is gonna use that in its flagship costliest iPhone if rumours are true which they likely are. Now in what way will apple spin oled? Magical contrast hundred times more than iPhone 7 now even apple accepts oled superiority so stop spouting nonsense
