Initially, we thought that all units of the Samsung Galaxy S6 rocked an IMX240 16-megapixel rear-facing camera module made by Sony. XDA-Devs, however, has revealed that some units ship sporting a camera made in-house by Samsung. Both sport Samsung-made front-facing cameras.

Apart from the different manufacturers behind the rear-facing camera, everything else is the same. Other Galaxy S6 specs include a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) and a pixel density of 577 ppi, a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32/64/128 GB of internal storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, LTE Cat.6 (300/50Mbps) connectivity, support for wireless charging, and a 2,550 mAh. The S6 measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8mm and weighs in at 138 g. It runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box with a 64-bit TouchWiz UI slapped on top.
Although the cameras’ manufacturers are different, the picture quality stays the same, and, apparently, Samsung considers the cameras to be interchangeable. Despite the fact that two units of the Galaxy S6 may sport rear-facing cameras from two different manufacturers, like we said earlier, the results will still be the same. Currently, the S6 and the S6 Edge offer among the best photography a smartphone has to offer.
