In the smartphone industry, dual camera setup has been the new cool. It started with dual cameras at the back followed by the dual cameras on the front. The phone companies aren’t stopping there and aggressively launching phones with four cameras (two on the front and two on the back). If you’re wondering which phone has four cameras, then latest Gionee S10 can be a good example. But surprisingly, the Samsung, the Korean Giant is yet to launch its first dual camera phone. If you were thinking the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be the company’s first dual camera phone then you were wrong. Samsung’s first dual camera phone will be either Galaxy C10 or the J7 2017.

Samsung Galaxy C10: Leaks (Renders and Specs)

The latest render leak from OnLeaks and Pricebaba boldly shows off the dual camera setup on the yet-to-be-announced Samsung Galaxy C10. The render leak looks promising with 3-strips antenna bands on top and bottom just like in the Samsung Galaxy C9 pro. As you can see on the picture above, the dual rear cameras are placed vertically accompanied by dual tone LED flash. It’s hard to say whether the setup is of wide angle – normal lens or normal – telephoto lens or same lenses with RGB or B/W sensor. Anyways, my bet is on them to be wide angle and a normal lens. On the left, there is a button below the volume rockers and don’t get it confused with a power button which will rather be placed on the right. Like the Samsung Galaxy S8, this button is for triggering Samsung’s in-house AI, the Bixby.

More to this, it has a USB type C on the bottom with a loudspeaker and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Thankfully, there won’t be an odd placement of fingerprint sensor and will reside below the 5.5inch display. The sensor will double as a home button just like other regular Samsung phones. Rest of the specs of the phone are yet to be announced and we’ll surely keep you updated. So stay tuned.

Samsung Galaxy J7 2017

It was almost certain that the Samsung Galaxy C10 will be the Samsung’s first phone with dual rear cameras until a new case of Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 got leaked on Weibo.

This cover has been claimed to be for the model no. SM-J7310. The leaks we have been covering on Samsung Galaxy J7 was for the model no. SM-J730. So, it’s more likely that there will be more than one model of J7 2017 and that will be region depended.

So, if I’ve to put my bet on the first rear dual camera phone from Samsung then the Galaxy C10 is what I’ll put my money on. However, it’s likely that Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 will launch sooner than the C10. But just a case leak out of nowhere isn’t as considerable as a leaked render.
