Samsung Galaxy S8's camera tipped to include Sony sensor that's not yet available

It might be true that we know almost everything there is to know about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 flagship, although few details about the phone's rear-facing camera leaked online. Of course, we know the smartphone will pack a 12-megapixel single-lens shooter, but that's about it.

Well, it looks like new information about the Galaxy S8 has just surfaced, but it's just a small piece of the puzzle. A new report claims Samsung's flagship will feature a Sony IMX333 sensor for the rear-facing camera.

This particular sensor hasn't even been introduced yet, and none of Sony's Xperia phones benefit from its traits. Nothing else has been revealed except for the brand and model of the sensor, so we can't really discuss it.

We're pretty sure though that Samsung will want to upgrade the performance and quality of the camera on its Galaxy S flagships, just like it did with the previous models. The real question is how good the Galaxy S8's camera will be in comparison with the predecessor's.
