New Galaxy 7 has a Sony Full chip PDAF (could come on cameras too).



Chipworks analyzed the Sony sensor used by the new Samsung Galaxy S7. And the sensor is the first with the Dual Pixel AF tech sourced from Sony:

It seems the full chip PDAF functionality, which requires dual readout from each pixel, was implemented with a multi-chip solution.

I can imagine Sony could implement the very same tech on larger sensors too. Imaging having a camera where every pixel has PDAF. This would be another standout feature on Sony cameras and one more reason for Canon/Nikon shooters to switch over to Sony…
