Your Galaxy S6 May Have A Different Camera Than That Of Your Friend’s
A rather strange fact about Samsung’s flagship phones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, has been revealed by a news site. The aforesaid handsets have enticed customers with number of fascinating features. One of the acclaimed feature of the South Korean company’s flagship devices is their amazing snapping capability, that comes from the powerful 16-megapixel cameras. The revealed fact is about cameras.
It has been known that Samsung didn’t incorporated the same cameras in all the devices; instead it used Sony IMX240 imaging sensor for some phones and its very own ISOCELL sensor for others.
The Verge observes that one possible cause behind Samsung’s nonuniform camera adjustment can be shortage of the preferred model of sensors. But which was its preferred model? One from Sony or its own product? This is not known. Following the randomness, S6 and its Edge variant both were equipped with Samsung or Sony’s sensor — whatever option was available.
The observer than pursued Samsung for comment on the matter. The South Korean company advocated its decision saying, it never compromises quality no matter what the circumstances are.
“The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge utilize camera sensors from several different vendors. Like all of the technology used in our products, they meet our strict global quality and performance standards,” The Verge quoted Samsung as saying.
The company spurned the request for explaining the cause factors behind not using the components ubiquitously. By same token, when the publication asked how the different Sony and Samsung sensors were distributed geographically, Samsung gave no explanation.
