Samsung Galaxy S8 could feature Sony camera

samsung galaxy s8 official leak back

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ look set to come with a camera module built by rival Sony, as rumours about the handset continue to appear ahead of its grand unveiling on March 29th.

The S8 and S8+ are said to feature Sony’s IMX333 camera module, which has yet to even be listed on the Japanese company’s own website.

That suggests either that the rumour is wide of the mark, or that Samsung and Sony have collaborated on a new unit altogether.

Recent chatter on tech sites suggests that both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will include a 12-megapixel camera with a wide aperture for improved low light performance.

Other gossip points towards a video camera that can shoot super slow motion at 1,000 frames per second.

Including a Sony module could well give Samsung the edge in the fiercely contested high–end smartphone space. Sony’s camera tech is widely regarded as being the best available.
