A South Korean website claims that Samsung is all set to introduce autofocus feature in the front camera of its upcoming flagship Galaxy S8 smartphone. For that, the company will add encoder-type AF actuator in the smartphone. Till now, the company was using fixed focus type front cameras in its smartphones. Previous flagship smartphones like Galaxy S6, Galaxy S7 and Note 5 used to come with 5MP fixed focus front cameras. This news is good for Selfie lovers as it will allow them to take better pictures with an upcoming smartphone from the company.
The camera module consists of lenses, actuators, an image sensor, and packages. The company will add actuators in the front camera instead of VCM (Voice Coil Motor) that we see in a rear camera of smartphones. This move will help Samsung make Galaxy S8 slimmer, according to report. Apart from design, this will also help the company to increase the quality of selfies as well. The actuator controls the location of the lenses and adjusts the focus of lenses accordingly, which result in better pictures. It also helps to find the optimal focal distance of the subject, which lead to better focus and quality.
“People are starting to take more selfies and number of demands for cameras that take selfies with higher qualities is increasing. It is heard that Samsung Electronics has decided to install front actuators for Galaxy S8 in order to differentiate its flagship Smartphone”, said an industry representative.
Previously, we also told you that, Samsung Galaxy S8 might come with 6GB RAM along with 256 GB internal storage. There will be in-house voice assistant as well in the smartphone according to some reports. Apple iPhone 7 also comes with 256GB internal storage option. There are a lot of smartphones in the market with 6GB RAM and massive internal storage support. The new Galaxy S8 might be the first smartphone from company featuring dual rear camera setup. But these all are just rumors and leaks and one should take these with a pinch of salt.
It is also said that upcoming Galaxy S8 might come with Apple iPhone like pressure-sensitive display. After Note 7 fiasco, the company doesn’t want to leave a stone unturned and adding more and more features in its upcoming smartphone. But the company will bring some meaningful changes only in the smartphone like force touch display. There are also rumors about having a 4K display for better integration of Virtual Reality in the Galaxy S8 smartphone. But as these are just rumors, we will let you know once something officially comes out from the company itself. Till then stay tuned with PhoneRadar.
