Is Samsung working on a Galaxy S8 variant with a dual-rear camera setup?

Samsung might be working on a variant of Galaxy S8 and S8+ with dual rear camera setup. Ahead of Galaxy S8 launch in March, there were rumours that the company will bring dual camera setup to its flagship, but the company ended up sticking with the tried and tested single camera setup instead. However, a new Weibo post suggests there could be a dual camera bearing Galaxy S8 in works as well.

The post shows a Galaxy S8 variant with vertically placed dual-rear camera setup. Further, the device doesn't seem to have a fingerprint reader, which is located next to the rear camera module in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ phones that were launched. It is not clear whether Samsung is really working on a variant of Galaxy S8 with a dual-rear camera and it is unlikely that Samsung will announce a new version of Galaxy S8 just months after the launch. It should be noted that a very similar looking phone was leaked back in April, and was tipped to be a prototype of the Galaxy S8+. It suggested that the company considered the set up at the very least, before finalising on the version with a single camera. 

Samsung is reportedly planning to launch the Galaxy Note 8 in August. The phone is said to feature dual-rear camera setup and most reports suggest the handset will sport a fingerprint sensor embedded under the display. The Note 8 is expected to look similar to Galaxy S8 with a larger Infinity Display, an updated Snapdragon 836 SoC, and up to 8GB RAM.
