The Korean tech conglomerate Samsung seems to be changing many things in its smartphone division. First, it decided to ship the regular Galaxy S24, and the Galaxy S24 Plus will feature the Exynos 2400 SoC instead of the latest Snapdragon chipset. Now, a report suggests that it would rely on Sony’s camera sensors for two models in the Galaxy S25 lineup.

Galaxy S25 And Galaxy S25 Plus To Feature Sony’s Image Sensor

According to tipster Revegnus, the Samsung Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25 Plus will use Sony’s image sensor. This implies that the Korean tech giant will replace its sensors, i.e., the ISOCELL sensors it has used for years, and replace them in favor of Sony’s sensors.

For the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus, Samsung used the 50MP ISOCELL GN3 sensors with a 1/1.57-inch size and one-micron pixel size. Although the tipster didn’t mention anything about the particular Sony sensor that Samsung would use, this is a big change for the company.

Will Galaxy S25 With Sony’s Sensors Click Better Images?

A report by Android Authority mentions that Samsung could opt to use similar Sony sensors on its 2025 flagships, such as the IMX 890/LYT-700. Further, there isn’t a major difference between the camera sensors of the two giants. Hence, it shouldn’t create a day and night difference in the final images.

The images clicked using a smartphone depend on the main camera sensor, but the image signal processor (or the chipset) also plays a critical role in the overall outcome. For the Galaxy S24 series, Samsung reportedly uses the Exynos chipsets on the non-Ultra models and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC for the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

Once these smartphones come out, we will have a clear idea of whether Samsung’s image signal processors can match those of Qualcomm’s. This would help us speculate whether the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25 Plus with Sony’s image sensors would perform better or worse. For now, that is the extent of information we have.
