Samsung Galaxy S6 to pack a 20MP camera with OIS

Samsung logoSamsung's upcoming Galaxy S6 is a regular visitor to the rumor mill. This time, industry insiders from the Samsung Electro-Mechanics (SEM) subsidiary hint that the top-end smartphone will pack a 20MP main camera with optical image stabilization.

Last year's poor financial results of SEM were caused by the predominant market distribution of low-end camera modules with small profit margins. What's interesting is that profits for this year are expected to be on the rise, thanks to the production of premium 16MP and 20MP OIS camera modules. We haven't seen Samsung make a 20MP stabilized camera yet, but who would be more likely to rock it, if not the upcoming flagship.

While Samsung has previously been caught employing Sony sensors, this report in Korean media suggests that won't be the case for the Galaxy S6. And with the likely utilization of an in-house chipset for the future flagship, a home-brewed camera will further increase the Korean giant's profits.
