Samsung's Galaxy S7 is shaping up to be an exciting release from the company, but the camera is always a big focus of any new smartphone release. Samsung is rumored to use one of Sony's impressive camera sensors, the same rear-facing snapper that is found in Sony's current Xperia Z5 family of handsets.
Rumor has Samsung pegged to use Sony's Exmor IMX300 sensor, which is a 23-megapixel sensor that will snap some very impressive photos and videos. Samsung is expected to tone it down to a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera, which will still be incredibly good. Sony's Exmor IMX300 sensor is capable of autofocusing in just 0.03 seconds while it has a 5x zoom that will snap great images from a distance.
The Exmor IMX300 sensor also rocks a 24mm wide angle lens that can take in more detail within a photo, so if the Galaxy S7 does include Sony's camera sensor, we can expect it to be one of the best smartphone cameras on the market.
