Samsung Galaxy S8 have been spotted using a Sony IMX333 sensor and a S5K2L2 ISOCELL sensor made by System LSI, a subsidiary of Samsung. Same thing can be said for the new 8MP autofocus front-facing camera – underneath the optics is either a Sony IMX320 unit or an ISOCELL S5K3H1.
Both cameras share the same specs across the board though. It doesn’t matter if you get a Sony or a Samsung-made main camera you still have a 1/2.55″ 12.2MP sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus and naturally the optics are the same as well – f/1.7 aperture and optical image stabilization. Pictures from either camera should ultimately be the same – no need to worry.
It’s nothing new for Samsung to use two different camera sensors – the Galaxy S6 and S7 both used both Sony and Samsung’s own ISOCELL sensors too.
