As the Samsung faithful may know, the South Korean manufacturer is making use of two different sensors for the main camera with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge: the Sony IMX240 and a home-made ISOCELL unit. This, more than anything, prompted us to check our own Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ review samples to see which one they got, and also make us wonder whether the same split will be true with the new phablets. A quick web search suggests that yes, there's once again going to be a difference from device to device.
Now, while both camera sensors come lugging very similar specs sheets, it's likely that there'll be a difference between the performance of the two, at least so long as we have a replay of the Galaxy S6. In that scenario, the Sony IMX240 unit delivered more tempting, saturated colors within images, so some preferred it over the less-extreme ISOCELL sensor.
