Oh, the Galaxy S24’s camera system? It’s decent, sure. But, let’s be real – it’s not exactly blowing the top camera phones out of the water. Samsung’s got ambition, though. They’re itching for a change. Seems like their hunger for improvement nudged Sony to pack up some of their gear and head over to South Korea.

Now, about the S24 and its sibling, the S24 Plus. They’re rocking the Samsung GN3 sensor. If that sounds familiar, it’s ’cause it’s not too far off from the Galaxy S22’s ISOCELL GN5 sensor. This GN3? It’s a 1/1.57-inch sensor, packed with 1.0μm-sized pixels. And thanks to Samsung’s Tetrapixel tech, it snaps pretty clear photos.

Here’s the scoop: Sony’s shifting gears, moving bits of its image sensor production over to South Korea. Why? Well, it’s Samsung’s turf. And while the grapevine hasn’t outright said Sony’s making sensors for the Galaxy S25, it’s dropping some heavy hints. The future might just see Samsung blending Sony’s tech with their own in-house sensors.

And get this – the new sensor Sony’s working on? Might just outshine their current lineup. There’s chatter about a spanking new coating process that could up the sensor quality. If Sony’s cameras make their way into the Galaxy S25, we could be looking at a serious contender in the smartphone arena. But, Sony’s move into Korea could ruffle some feathers at Samsung’s LSI division. Still, Samsung seems game to take that risk if it means stepping up their phone game.

But hey, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. These new phones? They’re nearly a year out. And in the tech world? A year’s a lifetime. Anything could happen.
