Samsung hints how the Galaxy Note 8's dual camera will work

  Samsung hints how the Galaxy Note 8's dual camera will work It's no secret that the Galaxy Note 8 will likely include dual rear cameras given all the leaks, but you don't have to take the rumor mill's word for it -- Samsung appears to have dropped a not-so-subtle hint of its own. There's a depth-of-field effect, as you might guess, so it's entirely possible that you'll see an iPhone-style portrait mode as well as after-the-shot refocusing. However, Samsung is also promising that the module will improve image quality even in regular shots. The dual cameras enable brighter low-light shots when used in tandem, and "dual fusion" can expand the dynamic range of a photo to preserve details in highlights and shadows.

On Thursday, following weeks of leaks and rumors, Samsung unveiled the Leader 8 flip phone on its website. Previously known only by its model number (SM-G9298), the Leader 8 is an Android -based, dual - display flip phone with surprisingly competitive specs and a stunning design.

A new rumor claims Samsung is going to launch a new flip phone in Korea sometime in the near future, with some high - end features. Our main newsletter is the Android Weekly which is sent every Sunday and contains all the top Android news, reviews and features from the past week.

In addition to the two HD displays, the phone also features a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, 2,300 mAh battery, 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera. The Leader 8 also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and supports wireless charging.

At a glance, the Leader 8 almost looks like a miniature Galaxy S8. Of course, once you flip the phone open, your perception changes entirely. Inside the phone, you’ll find a control pad surrounded by inlaid buttons, one of which can be configured to serve as a customizable hotkey. Below the control pad is a fairly standard key pad, which look like pretty much another other flip phone’s key pad.

So far, the Leader 8 has only been confirmed for release in China, though Samsung has yet to announce a price. We very much doubt that this phone will make it overseas, but our fingers are crossed.

Smartphone lost or stolen? Here's how to trace it .
Both Android and iOS feature very useful tools that allow you to quickly locate your smartphone if it gets lost or stolen.  The first step is to make sure that your device can be located. In Android, go into Google Settings, then Security, and activate the option "Remotely locate this device", if it is not already turned on.
