Galaxy S7: Why does my Samsung Galaxy S7 have a 12M Camera when Galaxy S6 have 16M Camera?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Low light performance


The Galaxy S7 is the first smartphone camera to have a professional-grade Dual Pixel Sensor to take crisp, clear photos even in the dark. As dual photodiode is applied to the camera, pixel size is larger and the number of pixels is reduced.

12 M


However, previous Galaxy S6’s 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 is reduced, detailed expression of camera is equal to or more level as it maintains each pixel’s horizontal line number.

Rather, because Galaxy S7 applies the new lens and dual photodiode sensor, more bright and clear images with less noise can be taken.
