Low light performance

Many of the most photographable moments of our lives happen when there's not enough light. We're either indoors or the sun has set. With the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, that won't be a problem. The brighter F1.7 lens and larger 1.4µm pixels on the image sensor capture so much more light that your photos come out sharp and detailed.

Dual Pixel 12MP

Each and every one of the pixels on the image sensor has two photodiodes instead of one, meaning the professional-grade Dual Pixel Sensor can focus as quickly and as accurately as you would with your own eyes.

Revolutionary focus

Every single pixel on the Dual Pixel Sensor is used for phase detection, enabling autofocus that's so incredibly fast and seamless that even the most sudden movements are caught in the act, even when the light starts to fade.

Spotlight

Highlight certain parts of your face and make your features stand out by turning on Spotlight in Beauty Mode. The strength and direction of the spotlight can be adjusted for different effects.

Selfie flash

Good lighting can make a world of difference. Especially to your selfies. The front-facing flash utilizes the entire sAMOLED display to light up your face with a soft glow by diffusing the light evenly.

Wide selfie

When it's time for that group selfie, pan the camera sideways by up to 120˚ so you don't leave anyone out of the picture. It's happy smiles all around.
