Today we came across a rather interesting report from Korea which suggests that both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the LG G4 will employ a dual camera setup. As most of you know, the most iconic smartphone to make a market debut with a dual camera configuration in tow was the HTC One M8. Now, sources in Korea claim that the country’s most prolific smartphone makers (Samsung and LG) will use a similar camera setup in their upcoming flagship phones.
It’s a rather odd theory for multiple reasons, including the fact that tons of 3D renders and sketches depicting the alleged design of the SGS6 have been leaked. None of these images hinted at a dual-camera setup, so either this fresh report got it a bit wrong or the previously leaked images are part of an elaborate hoax. More details below.
Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4 to Feature a Dual Camera Setup?
The idea behind a dual camera setup is quite sound. It allows users to capture moments and post-process the images with various effects – the most notable one being depth of field. The HTC One (M8) was among the first smartphones to employ a dual camera setup, but interestingly enough the sequel (known as Hima / M9) could return to a more conventional configuration.
Meanwhile, sources say that Samsung and LG will pick up the slack and employ a dual camera setup for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the LG G4. But if the SGS6 will look anything like it does in the latest renders then it’s safe to say that this won’t be the case. The LG G4 on the other hand, hasn’t been as much in the spotlight and we have yet to learn about its overall design. So there is a possibility that the LG G4 could feature a dual-camera setup, although the SGS6 might not.
Whatever the case, the SGS6 should be unveiled at MWC 2015 on the 1st of March, while the LG G4 could make an appearance a bit later down the line, in May. Until then, what’s your take on these latest rumors?
