camera sensor from Sony. Both models are 1/2.55-inch sensors with a resolution of 12.2 megapixels, Dual Pixel phase-detection autofocus, OIS, F1.7 aperture, and 4K video recording. So, the final image and video quality should be similar from both the sensors.

Similar is the case with the front-facing cameras in the smartphones. Some units use the IMX320 sensor from Sony, while others use the S5K3H1 sensor from System LSI. Both sensors have a resolution of 8 megapixels, feature autofocus mechanism, and QHD video recording abilities (HDR and EIS would be disabled in this mode, though). No matter which sensor is used in your Galaxy S8 or S8+ unit, it should offer impressive end results.
