New info from China sheds more light on Galaxy S8’s camera sensor. According to a Twitter user @mmddj_china, an industry insider, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will ship with a camera which will support Dual ADC. Now, the source also mentions that Sony’s IMX204 sensor offers support for Dual ADC, but that sensor is not meant to be used in smartphones, and quite frankly it doesn’t fit in there, the Galaxy S8 would have to be huge, and that won’t happen, of course. For those of you who don’t know, ADC is short for Analog-To-Digital Converter, and a dual ADC setup would surely boost camera’s performance.
A camera setup with support for the Dual ADC sure sounds interesting, and compelling, but truth be said, Samsung will hardly incorporate this into the Galaxy S8, though it’s not impossible, of course. In any case, the Galaxy S8 will probably ship with Sony’s sensor on its back (a completely new sensor perhaps?), especially if today’s leak is accurate. In addition to all this, the source also released some pricing info for the Galaxy S8, by saying that Korea and China will get only the 6GB RAM variant of the Galaxy S8, and that such variant will be available in both 64GB and 128GB storage flavors. The 64GB storage model will, reportedly, cost 6,088 Yuan ($885) in China, while the 128GB storage variant will set you back 6,488 Yuan ($943). It is also worth mentioning that this very same source shared some info regarding the Galaxy S8 RAM variants a couple of days ago. He essentially said that we can expect to see both 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM Galaxy S8 models, on a global scale.
Samsung is not planning to announce the Galaxy S8 during this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona, the company will host a separate event instead. The Galaxy S8 is expected to land in March or April alongside the Galaxy S8 Plus, a larger variant of the company’s flagship. These two devices are rumored to sport curved displays, and Android Nougat will come pre-installed on both of them. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor will fuel the Galaxy S8, and chances are we won’t see an Exynos variant of the company’s flagship this time around, though Samsung could surprise us with the Exynos 8895, we’ll see. The company will tease the Galaxy S8 during MWC 2017, though, as they plan to release a couple of teaser videos during the tradeshow, so stay tuned for that.
S8's CMOS may support Dual ADC.IMX204 support Dual ADC.But S8's CMOS is not IMX204,I think.BTW,IMX204 is 20MP 1/1.7,it's not for smartphones
