The Samsung Galaxy S22 made a significant jump from 12MP primary cameras to 50MP cameras, and this upgrade has carried over to the Galaxy S23 and S24. However, there are hints that Samsung might introduce a newer camera sensor with the upcoming Galaxy S25 and S25+.
Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+ could use Sony camera sensors
According to a report from tipster Revegnus (@Tech_Reve), the Galaxy S25 and S25+ are rumored to move away from the ISOCELL GN3 50MP camera sensor used in previous models and adopt a new camera sensor from Sony. Details about the exact sensor size and model number remain undisclosed, leaving room for speculation about potential improvements. The shift to a new camera sensor could signal a significant upgrade for the next generation of Samsung’s flagship smartphones, but more concrete information is needed to confirm these changes.
As part of its revamp for the Galaxy S25 series, Samsung is expected to introduce a custom in-house chipset, internally referred to as the ‘Dream Chip,’ which is anticipated to feature a powerful AMD RDNA3-based GPU. This move suggests that the Galaxy S25 lineup will bring a host of technological advancements to the table.
Samsung could be working on a 1-inch ISOCELL camera sensor
For the Galaxy S25 Ultra, Samsung might continue its trend of using a 200MP camera sensor but could also be developing a new sensor with a larger size. Rumors from tipster Revegnus also indicate that Samsung is in the process of developing a 1-inch ISOCELL camera sensor with advanced features. However, specific details such as the model number remain undisclosed, and it’s uncertain whether this sensor will be integrated into the Galaxy S25 series or future models.
While the potential debut of a 1-inch camera sensor from Samsung has been the subject of speculation and multiple reports, it remains to be seen when or if this sensor will make its way into Samsung’s lineup in the future.
