Samsung releases official camera samples taken with the Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge

Samsung releases official camera samples taken with the Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge
While Samsung was announcing the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge today, it stressed quite profoundly on its camera capabilities. After all, it's one of the many aspects of the handsets that have been improved. 

At the back, we have a 16 MP sensor equipped snapper, its aperture size has been upgraded to F1.9, which should provide better light capturing, and shallower depth of field for better focus options and effects. OIS, Selective focus, HDR, and 4K video are expected to make a return, and a quick-access feature has been added – users can now double click the home button, which will bring up the camera app in just 0.7 seconds, according to Samsung.

The selfie snapper is also an impressive piece of tech – the sensor has a 5 MP resolution and also sports an F1.9 aperture size, and Samsung promises great performance in low-light conditions. You can check its prowess in the last three images right below.

Note: we have included low-res versions of the camera samples due to their large size. You can grab the full-sized samples from this link.

This is what competition does. Back when Apple and Sammy were splitting the smartphone market profits, Sammy was fine with not putting out the effort to improve their offerings. Once Apple started to eat Sammy's lunch with the Sixes, Sammy faced an existential challenge. Now they have stepped up their game to where it needs to be. Only with competition does this happen.

All these images have been touched up. Especially the peoples faces, it's so obvious. I wouldn't be surprised if the night shots have been played around as well. Best to wait till the retail version gets released and people test the phone out.

The people's faces are probably the result of BEAUTY MODE. it is the default mode when you use the front cam. So no need for camera 360. Haha. You can always turn it off though

Never trust so called samples from the manufacturer themselves. Nokia taught us that when they claimed to have shot a video with the Lumia 920. If you believe this you're gullible. Wait for the review units and sites to do a comparison. Before that, these so called samples are marketing.

Ever since the galaxy s2, Samsung has always provided good cameras in all of its high-end phones, winning alot of camera awards in tech websites... and yet you still think we are gullible for believing Samsung? nice try clown

I own A note 4 idiot, so I know they have the best camera's. But you can still overdo it with samples to sell a phone, dumb s**t. Get a brain.

Hard to tell...these look downsized and photoshopped (most noticeable on skin complexions). Would like to see a straight out of the camera shot. Also curious to know if this has the Note 4's Sony sensor or is back to a Samsung sensor.

The front cam of Galaxy devices starting from the S5 defaults to BEAUTY MODE. It automatically edit your face to look better,haha. You can disable it though. Maybe that is why it looked photoshopped to you.

Do these cameras have beauty mode? Those selfies look photoshoped. The guys forehead in image 6 is so smooth.

The guy is just trying to keep straight face when holding a DSLR camera. I wait for the real tests.

To people complaining that the photos have been touched up, are you saying that you only post photos statist out of camera without any post-processing? Riiiight. I'll be happy if my post-processed photos look like these.

You cant edit what isn't there, and the amount of details captured is amazing for a phone.

Backside of the phone is nice and shiny but massive fingerprint magnet.
