The Samsung Galaxy S8 will get a new front camera with autofocus
About the smartphone Samsung Galaxy S8, the Network published a lot of rumors. Another of them indicates that the novelty of the Korean company will receive a front camera with support for autofocus.
This is not new for the market, but the function is quite rare, if it is about the front camera. The camera resolution is unknown. Samsung recently began to put in their smartphones the 16-megapixel front-facing camera, but not in the case of flagship models.
The feasibility of the in-focus front camera remains under question, but the flagship of Samsung has always been one of the best camera on the market, so companies know better.
To reduce the size of the camera module, Samsung will use a different type of actuator. Instead of a linear motor with a coil (Voice Coil Motor; VCM) is used an actuator with an external coil that will make the camera module thinner.
