Samsung had been consistently improving camera quality on its Galaxy smartphone with each passing year, and it will continue to do so in the future. It recently released its flagship smartphones with a new camera that features dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus technology for significantly improved the focusing capability. According to a new rumor, Samsung seems to be working on a new larger-sized camera sensor for its future smartphones.

According to PhotoRumors, Samsung is working on a brand new 1/1.7-inch CMOS camera sensor with an aperture as wide as ƒ/1.4. The new sensor could have a resolution of anywhere between 18-24 megapixels. The company is also working on a new compact 1/2.3-inch camera sensor.

Samsung recently announced that it will not release any new cameras in its NX lineup (at least in some markets), and it has been moving people from its NX camera department to its smartphone department. The South Korean smartphone giant is really focused to improve the image quality on its smartphones, and it seems to have a very aggressive roadmap.
