    You might have come across camera samples from the Galaxy S6′s 16-megapixel sensor. If you didn’t, you totally should, because from what we can tell looking at the samples, it’s hands-down the best camera Samsung has ever shipped on a phone. And, in agreement with our previous exclusive leaks, it has officially been established that both the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge have Sony’s IMX240 camera sensors embedded in them, something we were able to confirm by taking a peek into the phones’ system files.

    The sensor itself is paired with a lens of f/1.9 aperture, which allows plenty of light to hit the surface, often translating into high-quality low-light imaging. Also, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge offer quick access to the camera by always keeping the camera app in standby – users can double tap the home button twice when the screen is off to start taking pictures in under 0.7 seconds.

    For all the details on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, don’t forget to check out our hands-on experience.
