Hype around Samsung's upcoming device Galaxy Note 6 aka Galaxy Note 7 is beginning to gain momentum with its release date drawing close. More details of the device have been leaked, and the latest we heard is that it may share a similar camera with that of Apple's flagship iPhone 7 Plus.

The South Korean technology giant is tight-lipped on its upcoming Galaxy Note 6 aka Galaxy Note 7, but going by the tradition, it should come in August, as the Galaxy Note 5 will complete a year cycle in the market by this time. There are reports that the device could come as early as mid-July, however, that is yet to be confirmed.

Interestingly, a report by Chinese website Zol (via Pocket-lint) has claimed, citing industry sources, that the Galaxy Note 7 edge will feature a dual camera. It went on to say that Samsung Electro-Mechanics (Semco) is working on a dual camera for the upcoming device. 

A few devices like the Huawei P9 and HTC One have dual camera, and the latest to join the list is Apple's iPhone 7 Plus. Chris Chang of Nomura Securities (via Barron's) has claimed that all 5.5-inch iPhone 7 models will mount a dual camera.

The report contradicts earlier speculations that Samsung's upcoming Note device could house the same camera seen in the Galaxy S7. The recently released handset from the S family has a 12MP main camera with features like f/1.7 aperture, 26mm, OIS, 1/2.6" sensor size and 1.4 µm pixel size, and a 5MP front-snapper with f/1.7 aperture.

According to reports that have surfaced so far, Samsung Galaxy Note 6 (aka Galaxy Note 7) is expected to sport a 5.8-inch display with 2,560x1,440 pixels, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor, and run either Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow or Android N. It is also expected to have a 64GB/128GB internal memory, 10 nanometer 6GB RAM and 4,000mAh battery.
