Samsung is set to make huge changes to the selfie camera of the Galaxy S8, much more like it has been doing with its midrange family.
Just recently, the tech giant unveiled Samsung Galaxy A 2017 and Galaxy C Pro series. The two families of midrange phones have, as expected, midrange hardware specs under the hood, however, the South Korean company has identified the selfie camera as their unique selling point. Like many other OEMs from China have been doing, Samsung has opted to compensate for the trimmed-down raw power of the phones with high-quality cameras that promise to give one-of-a-kind shots.
The two have 16MP sensors on their selfie cameras, same as what they carry on their main cameras. But since megapixel count is not everything, Samsung Galaxy S8 will reportedly be going for 8MP selfie shooters on both models. To ensure that they deliver the best, Samsung will pack the sensor with autofocus abilities, but this is not all.
Apparently, the iris recognition feature that made its debut with Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is also making its way to the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. These two are rumored to have a launch date of April 15, but we should know some details about them at the upcoming MWC 2017 event in Barcelona, at least according to some reports.
