Sony EXMOR Sensor in Samsung’s Galaxy S7?

Sony being a dominant force in the mobile industry is a novel idea, after-all the company’s Xperia division suffers low sales and the division does not make money. However, the Japanese giant is a dominant force, accounting for a market majority in the image sensor industry.
