The Galaxy S7 might get the camera sensor featured on the Sony Xperia Z5, as Samsung is currently in talks with the Japanese tech company. The IMX300 sensor is a very important piece which apparently impressed Samsung, and if things go right we might see it on the Galaxy S7 next January, when it is rumored to be launching. DxOMark puts the IMX300 among the top camera sensors, claiming that it’s the best they’ve ever tested which says a lot. Sony’s initial plans were to keep this camera sensor exclusive to the Xperia line but Samsung is negotiating for it right now and they might strike a hard bargain.

Should Sony accept the deal it will be pretty profitable for them because the Galaxy S7 will probably sell millions of units. There’s a lot to be said about the IMX300 in terms of specifications, but word has it that the camera sensor has a 25-megapixel and a 192-point hybrid autofocus system, which turned out to be brilliant on the Xperia Z5 with a focusing time of 0.03 seconds.
