Given that they both both use the novel dual pixel focus and have exactly the same resolution I suspect they are really the same sensors but one manufactured by Samsung under license from Sony or visa versa simply because they needed more production capacity.

True. The Sony sensor is better on some and the Samsung sensor is better on others.
