CAMERA AND STORAGE
For the camera, Samsung provided a 12MP rear camera which is lower than ones seen on the S6. Samsung says the new camera can focus up to three times faster thanks to its dual-pixel system that allows every single one of the 12 million pixels to act as focus pixels, similar to the system Canon uses in some of its DSLR cameras.
The super-fast snapper can be quickly launched by double-tapping the Home button. There is also a quality 5 megapixels front-facing camera.
It also features a wide aperture of f/1.7. Shoot in the dark and own the night with larger pixels that capture more light for brighter photos. The new Dual Pixel technology allows great low-light photography and blazing fast auto-focus.
