The Samsung Galaxy S7 could sport a 20MP camera sensor, be even thinner
We've been hearing all sorts of rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S7 lately, and quite a few of them have been dealing with the handset's camera setup. It is said that "dual camera" is the new buzzword at Samsung, with the company supposedly having four concepts in development and planned for adoption in the first half of 2016.

In related news, Samsung just boasted about a new 20MP camera sensor it has developed, and the Galaxy S7 seems like the best and most logical choice to showcase it, seeing that all the company's current flagship smartphones are now out. The 20MP sensor measures 1/2.6" and has 1.0 micron-sized pixels, while boasting reduced power draw, thanks to being made on a 28nm process (coming all the way down from 65nm as seen in Samsung's 16MP 1.2 micron sensor used in its recent Galaxy phones).

The chip also features a new RWB color pattern for enhancing light sensitivty and improving the signal to noise ratio in low-light conditions. Thanks to the reduction in physical size and power draw, the sensor will allow for Samsung's next phones to become thinner, which, according to customer research, is a highly desirable characteristic.
