Samsung has taken the wraps off the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge -- two different sized phones, but both packing the same camera, which is what we're taking a closer look at here.
The most important thing to note about the camera is that the resolution has dropped from 16 to 12 megapixels. That might sound bad but there's a good reason behind it. The pixels on the sensor are physically larger than before, allowing them to capture much more light.
The lens has a wider aperture too -- going from f/1.9 on the S6 to f/1.7 on the S7. That allows it to take in more ambient light from a scene. Pair that with the larger sensor pixels and the S7s are shaping up to be formidable low-light shooters.
Samsung showed us this demo of both the S6 and S7 taking controlled low-light shots. The image previews on the screen certainly looked brighter on the S7, and had less image noise too (a common problem with low-light shooting on any type of camera).
