Samsung's dual camera 'bokeh' tricks are coming to budget phones

  Samsung's dual camera 'bokeh' tricks are coming to budget phones Dual-camera smartphones with improved low-light photos and fancy, defocused "bokeh" behind subjects are pretty new and until now, have been reserved for high-end smartphones. Isocell Dual tech can be set up in a couple of different configurations, either for one feature or the other. For low-light shooting (LLS), Samsung marries its algorithms with a set of two 8-megapixel sensors, and for bokeh, uses a 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel image sensor set. According to an presentation last year, the modules can also enable optical smartphone zooming, but Samsung might be keeping that trick for its own smartphones.

The 3D emoji reportedly include animal characters that can be shared with friends. The news was spotted by Android Authority.

Samsung isn’t the first to lift an Animoji-like feature from Apple, Honor has its own take too.
