LESS than a week after Samsung revealed its first smartphone with a dual-camera system, the Galaxy Note 8, the Korean giant seems ready to announce its second phone with two cameras on the back. This time, though, the device is a midrange product. Say hello to the Samsung Galaxy J7+, from the line that helped the company secure its (second) spot in the Philippines in the second quarter of 2017.

(Update, August 28, 2017: We now know how this phone looks! See our story: This is how the Samsung Galaxy J7+ with dual rear cams looks.)

A leak from Thailand shows the phone in all its glory. The Galaxy J7+’s two rear shooters are arranged vertically, and they are said to be a 13-megapixel f/1.7 sensor and a 5-megapixel f/1.9 unit. You’ll find the Live Focus feature we first saw in the Note 8 here, too. In case you didn’t know, Live Focus is Samsung’s answer to Apple’s Portrait Mode, or the function that lets you take photos with blurred background.

The Samsung Galaxy J7+ will support the company’s own digital assistant, Bixby. There’s even a dedicated Bixby key on the left side of the smartphone. No idea which octa-core chip powers this Galaxy, but word has it that we may be looking at the Exynos 7870 Octa, the same processor found in the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017).
