The new smartphone Xperia Z5 from Sony uses a new 23-megapixel Exmor RS sensor self-development, and now, according to a recent report, the Samsung wants to use this sensor in their next flagship.
The Samsung company, apparently, is in talks with Sony about the use of 23-megapixel sensor in the Samsung Galaxy S7, which will be launched next year.
It is expected that the South Korean company will release two different versions of upcoming device: and with a conventional curved screen, as is the case with the Galaxy S6.
There are also rumors that Samsung will use different processors depending on the region, so that we can see the S7 CPU with Exynos 8990, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and possibly with Exynos 7422, which will be launched in India.
It is unknown whether Samsung will be able to convince Sony to let them use their new 23-megapixel sensor in the Samsung Galaxy S7, or Sony will retain the exclusive sensor for Xperia Z5 smartphone lineup.
Although it can be quite a bargain, because Samsung will allow to generate significant revenues for Sony camera sensor business.
