Samsung has been constantly improving the rear camera in its smartphones but the selfie shooter hasn’t seen any notable improvements for a few years already. This might change with the upcoming Galaxy S8, though.

According to a report from the Korean site ETNews, Samsung is planning to add autofocus to the front shooter in their upcoming flagship smartphone – the Galaxy S8. This functionality will improve photo quality from the selfie shooter by adjusting the lens placement to get the best result. Autofocus in front cameras is still a rarity in the smartphone segment, and Samsung will most probably use this technology as a unique selling point for their new product with which the company will recover after the Note 7 recall. It remains unknown what other changes we will see in the selfie shooter of the Galaxy S8 but a resolution improvement is quite probable.
