Samsung’s next smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, will reportedly include a dual camera array similar to the iPhone 7+, according to reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities.

Kuo said in a note to investors seen by Apple Insider that the next Samsung phone will likely feature two cameras on the back of the device, just like the iPhone 7+ had.

But Kuo said in his note that the “Note 8’s dual-camera will be much better than that of iPhone 7 Plus, and likely match that of OLED iPhone [the new iPhone 8].”

The Galaxy Note 8 will be Samsung’s first “Note” phone since the Galaxy Note 7, which was recalled after several devices exploded.

Samsung has never released a phone with dual cameras before, Kuo noted. He expects the cameras to be a 12-megapixel wide-angle CIS and a 13-megapixel telephoto CIS, according to Apple Insider.

Kuo also says in the note that he expects the new Samsung phone to come with a large 6.4 inch screen. He expects these large, edge-to-edge displays to become the industry standard for smartphones.
