Samsung said to be using Sony sensors on some models of the Galaxy S6

One of the key selling points of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge apart from the design and the quality of materials was the camera.

However, a new report tells us that Samsung is not using the same camera sensor for all variants of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Some people have discovered that the Korean manufacturer is also utilizing Sony made sensors in some models instead of the standard ISOCELL sensors that were promised initially.

This has obviously taken us a bit by surprise as the quality of the images might be slightly different with the Sony sensors compared to the Samsung ISOCELL sensor. However, according to the sample images accessed by a popular Samsung fan site, the Sony IMX240 sensor used on some Galaxy S6 models, isn’t all that different from the regular ISOCELL sensor, so there might not be need for concern just yet.

So if you’re looking to get the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S6 Edge, there’s not much need for concern, at least as of now. Check out the images below for a better idea on where the two sensors stand with regards to quality.
