Samsung prepping dual-screen cameras for easy self portraits

Samsung is said to be prepping two new compacts that will pack small front-facing screens as well as the standard LCDs.The idea behind the dual screen

The idea behind the dual screens is to help you improve those extended arm self portraits (or those on timers for the sensible among you), and avoid you cutting your mate out of the picture at a crucial moment.

The ST500 and ST550 will both feature the 1.5-inch mini screen on the front, alongside 12.2 megapixels, 4.6x optical zoom, 720p HD video recording and image stabilisation.

In fact the only difference between the two is their 3- and 3.5-inch displays respectively.

Both main screen are reported to boast haptic feedback, and a picture doing the rounds showing no buttons on the back would suggest a fully touchscreen interface.

As far as we know, these cams are yet to be confirmed by Samsung, let alone priced and dated – but as always we'll be sure to keep you updated as soon as we know more.

Let us know what you think to the double-screened wonder below.
