The previous flagship device by Samsung had a 16 MP camera which takes great photos and videos. But greater pixels density clearly does not result in better pictures. All Samsung Galaxy S6 users found that low light pictures captured by their devices were mostly blurred and lacked clarity.

In order to resolve this issue, Samsung has switched back to a 12 MP camera and improved the image capturing quality. Samsung is further improving its phone’s photo and video capturing abilities with “Dual Pixel sensors”.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge come equipped with a 12 MP Dual Pixels rear camera.Now that the pixels are larger and the aperture can open wider, the company has assured that the camera can capture 95 percent more light. The auto-focus has gotten faster too as the sensor uses 100 percent of its pixels to focus.
