Samsung Galaxy S7 camera too hot to take photos

It is summer and you are right on the lake or ocean, the Samsung Galaxy S7 lies in the blazing sun, as you would quickly take a snapshot with it of your friends. But the smartphone has become hot in the sun and no photos can be recorded with the camera.

Especially in the summer it can happen that the Samsung Galaxy S7 gives an error when opening the camera app, which states that the current temperature of the device is too hot to take pictures. This is because the photo sensor would not be able to measure the current temperature without damage, so you should still take photos (the sensor is additionally heated).
