Is Galaxy S6's 16MP camera quality better than Galaxy S7's 12MP?

Last Update date : 2017.04.19




As dual photodiode is applied to the camera, pixel size is larger and the number of pixels are reduced. However, previous Galaxy S6s camera supports 5312 X 2988 of 16:9 ratio with 16M pixels, and Galaxy S7 supports 4032 X 3024 of 4:3 ratio with 12M pixels. Even though number of pixels are reduced, detailed expression of camera is equal to or more level as it maintains each pixels horizontal line number. Because Galaxy S7 applies the new lens and dual photodiode sensor, more bright and clear images with less noise can be taken.
