Unchanged Image Sensor in Galaxy S25 Cameras: Déjà Vu or Genius Upgrade?

Samsung’s Galaxy S25 and S25 Plus may stick with their ISOCELL GN3 image sensor, despite earlier rumors suggesting a switch to Sony sensors. The ISOCELL GN3 sensor, already used in the Galaxy S23 and S24 series, offers high image quality, fast performance, and support for high-resolution video.

While Sony sensors are known for superior image quality and faster readout speeds, Samsung’s potential decision to stick with the ISOCELL GN3 sensor could mean a reliance on software and chipset improvements for better image quality. Samsung has hinted at plans to introduce an AI revolution with the upcoming One UI 6.1 and the Galaxy S24 series, which could lead to significant improvements in image quality, even with the continued use of the ISOCELL GN3 sensor.

It’s still too early to say for sure what Samsung will do with the Galaxy S25 and S25 Plus, as the company could potentially switch to Sony sensors or introduce a new sensor of its own. However, based on the current information, it seems likely that the ISOCELL GN3 will continue to play a role in Samsung’s flagship smartphones for the foreseeable future.
