The Galaxy S24 lineup is set to be released soon by Samsung. Even though an official launch date has not yet been announced, the smartphone has begun appearing on various certification platforms, including the FCC. Leaks surrounding the Galaxy S25 series have already begun appearing despite the S24 series’ expected release in January 2024.
According to tipster Revengus on X/Twitter, the Galaxy S25 and S25+ feature a new camera. Samsung will replace the Samsung GN3 sensor with Sony’s image sensor for the Galaxy S25 and S25+, according to the tipster.
Since the Galaxy S22, S22+, S23, S23+, Fold 4, and Fold 5, Samsung smartphones have used the ISOCELL GN3 sensor. The sensor is 50MP with an aperture of f/1.8, 1.0-micron pixels, and Dual Pixel PDAF and OIS.
According to the tipster, things could change with the Galaxy S25 series. For Samsung, this could be a significant change, as the GN3 sensor has been a reliable workhorse.
This is just a rumor at this point, and Samsung may not switch to a Sony sensor. The development is certainly interesting to watch.
