Samsung Galaxy S25, Galaxy S25+ Could Ditch ISOCELL GN3 Sensor and Switch to Sony

Samsung Galaxy S24 series hasn’t even been announced yet, but we’re already seeing early rumours about its successor — Galaxy S25 series. Samsung’s Galaxy S series phones in 2025 are expected to come with new camera hardware, according to a tipster. The regular Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+ are tipped to drop Samsung’s ISOCELL sensors as the main camera in favour of a Sony image sensor. The South Korean brand has used the ISOCELL GN3 sensor in its recent flagship smartphones including the Galaxy S23 series.

Known tipster Revegnus (@Tech_Reve) on X claimed that Samsung will ditch the ISOCELL sensors and use Sony image sensors as the main camera on the purported Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+. If this rumour holds any weight, then it would be a significant change for the brand. The company has equipped in-house ISOCELL sensors for the main camera of its high-end smartphones including Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, Galaxy Z Fold 4, and Galaxy Z Fold 5. The Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ reportedly use the ISOCELL GN3 50-megapixel sensor.

Meanwhile, the upcoming Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ are anticipated to retain the same 50-megapixel Samsung GN3 sensor as their main camera, accompanied by a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 10-megapixel telephoto unit with up to 3x optical zoom.

As per a recent leak, the Galaxy S24+ will use a custom Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, paired with 12GB of RAM. The regular model is expected to run on an Exynos 2400 SoC paired with 8GB of RAM. The Galaxy S24 is said to get a 6.2-inch full-HD+ screen with 120Hz refresh rate, whereas the Galaxy S24+ could pack a 6.7-inch QHD+ display with 120Hz screen.

The vanilla Galaxy S24 will reportedly house a 4,000mAh battery with super-fast charging support, while the Galaxy S24+ is said to be backed by a 4,900mAh battery with super-fast charging 2.0 support.


Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series of smartphones was launched earlier this week and the South Korean firm’s high-end handsets have seen a few upgrades across all three models.
