Update: the results are in! Check them out here.
The new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+‘s standout feature is definitely the attention-grabbing Infinity Display. But interestingly, the camera on the back remains unchanged, using the same trusted 12MP dual-pixel sensor on the Galaxy S7 edge.
There are some software changes, such as Multi-Frame Image Processing, but for owners of the Galaxy S7 edge (like myself), the question would definitely be whether or not the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are worth the upgrade if you are currently using the S7 edge.
Considering how important the rear camera is in a consumer’s buying decision these days, we sought to find out if there is any tangible difference between the two cameras’ performance. And we want you to join in on us – we’ve designed a blind camera comparison with a series of photos captured with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S7 edge, arranged in random order (the first photo isn’t always the S7 edge, for example).
Let us know which camera took the following photos in the comments section below! We’ll reveal the identities of the cameras on Monday.
Also, note that the Galaxy S8 we used is a pre-production engineering sample. Though it runs on the same hardware, the software may not be the same as the final retail unit.
