Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge Sport Sony Camera Sensors: Report
A new report has claimed that Samsung's new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones pack Sony's IMX260 sensor, which is an upgrade from last year's Sony IMX240.

The biggest change this year however is that the South Korean company has opted to use Sony's image sensors in all of its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge variants, claims a report from Sammobile. Additionally, Samsung is said to ship its Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones without the home-grown music and video apps.

Samsung last year was reported to ship its own ISOCELL camera sensor on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones, with some variants sporting the Sony IMX240 sensor instead. This year however the company seems to have opted to stick with the image sensors provided by Sony.

Separately, a report says that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge now ships with pre-installed Google Play Music and Google Play Movies apps that replace the native Music and Video Player from Samsung. To recall, the company had last year enabled most preloaded apps on the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge to be disabled as well as uninstalled/ deleted. The missing Samsung music and video apps however can be downloaded from the Galaxy Store.
