You will see Dual Pixel autofocus for all them.
Check list of Exmor RS. A few of them have Dual Pixel listed as Autofocus.
All these sensors have same specs: 12MP , 1.4 micron
why can people just see this as a good thing?
if samsung does't try to produce this, will sony ever sell their current sensor to samsung? definitely not because sony will not sell the sensor that they used in their flagships.. Samsung have to stay competitive within the industry especially when apple already introduce slow-mo 1080p at 240fps.. if samsung don't make the right decision, they will probably end-up like nokia or blackberry in the past.

Samsung has an exclusive with Canon on that technology. Not 100% sure if it's a co-development or a licence deal, either way, there's a reason no one else on smartphones uses it and it's called IP.

That's pretty good, I'd say. And they have a massive revenue underneath that to keep the ball rolling for a long time. Samsung isn't a one pony player, like Apple.

Any phone can have it as long it has same sensor.
Sensors used by U11 and Zenfone 3 Zoom have Dual Pixel too. Both are imx.
Autofocus is not only point , remove and point to object again. It is important to keep focus for continuous shots too.

Phase detection autofocus splits the image into two 'copies', then adjusts the lens elements until the two images 'merge', ie until they're in phase. In the traditional PDAF sensor, only 5-10 % of the pixels are used for autofocus. Now, with Dual Pixel technology, Samsung has embedded a phase detection photodiode in each and every pixel on the camera sensor. So 100% of the pixels are used for autofocus.
And even though samsung uses sony sensors for galaxies on some markets, they dont use it as it is. They tweek it as they need and added Dual Pixel autofocus.
Challenge with SONY in camera? Is that what you are thinking of SAM? Common in your dreams

i understand your feelings towards bezels... for me it's more than fine and i like it... it has great grip when holding it landscape!
Just because their fav brand is the one who copies..Sammy fanboys are used to these line everywhere "It's not about the first..It's all about who does it better.."
Note7User, 18 Sep 2017Wow so now samsung started to copy Sony now, lolNah, this relation been from years, and soon they will copy the 3D picture creator.
Sony Fanboy Bitches, 18 Sep 2017As for the same reason many people buy Samsung phones for their terrible software? ROFLTheir software is very heavy compared by Sony's lightweight software.

That's why Samsung can't simply copy it or make it a two-stage solution.
