Sony's mobile image sensor division is making the difference for the company at the moment, driving profits while the Xperia smartphone company struggles to tread water. The Japanese giant has seen its sensors sweep the smartphone market, becoming the lens of choice for many of the company's rivals. Samsung, however typically uses its own sensors, but that will be about to change with the Galaxy S7.

The S7 will be Samsung's next flagship handset, although it has recently been reported that the company will be using its own ISOCELL image sensor. It now seems as though Sony has won over the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world as Samsung is also interested in the IMX300 sensor.

That doesn't necessarily mean that Samsung will ditch the ISOCELL sensor and in fact will probably use Sony's and its own photo technology. The Korean company is not new at doing things like that, such as when its mixes its own Exynos processor with a Qualcomm Snapdragon, depending on the variant. Either way, it seems that the Galaxy S7 will be getting a higher megapixel camera than it has in the past.
