Numerous reports have suggested that Samsung intends to announce the Galaxy S7 much earlier than expected, which is probably why we’ve been seeing so many rumors about the smartphone recently. One of those rumors claimed that the device will come with a a 12MP camera that’s similar to what the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P have, but now a contradictory rumor has appeared, which claims that the Galaxy S7 will actually have a 20MP camera that will support RAW images and will feature a new video recorder mode.
Samsung’s seventh generation of their flagship Galaxy S line is likely to be announced in early 2016. With a few rumors pointing at a January announcement. So we’re beginning to see plenty of rumors and leaks of the new Galaxy S7, including the fact that the device might be sporting a 20MP camera when it is announced next year. This contradicts the last rumor on the camera which said it was going to sport one of Sony’s IMX300-series sensors, which are DSLR quality sensors, similar to what the Nexus 5X and 6P both have, and that it would be a 12-megapixel shooter. Now there’s a rumor coming out of “S Leaks” that the Galaxy S7 will be sporting a 20-megapixel camera and will also have support for RAW images, and feature a new video recorder mode. Likely to compete with the RAW features of video recording that LG added on the V10. Currently, there is no word on who the will be making this sensor. Whether it’ll be a Sony, Toshiba or Samsung sensor. It’ll likely be a Samsung sensor as that is what Samsung has been using for the most part in recent flagship smartphones.
