There are still a few months until Samsung officially reveals the Galaxy S11. But, as per usual, rumors and leaks have already started coming up.
At the moment, we've got information about the camera of the phone, its notch, and the available colors that it'll come in. Without any further ado, let's check it out!
The Monsterous 108MP Camera
A 108MP camera - haven't we heard about this before? Oh, yeah! As we previously found out, the Mi Note 10 is also supposed to come out with a rather huge sensor!
This is the world's first phone with a 108MP camera. We already knew that the sensor was developed by Samsung. But, nobody knew if they were going to use that sensor on their own flagships as well.
In fact, we still don't know. Ice Universe was the one to mention that there is a high chance of Samsung using this sensor on the S11 - and the keyword here is "Chance".
Because, Ice Universe may be a reliable leakster, but nobody knows what Samsung may be planning. Or if they are going to change their plans down the line, for that matter.
As for the camera, as you can see in the image above, Xiaomi mentioned that it can zoom up to 50x digitally. That's without even relying on an optical zoom sensor!
But, since we haven't been able to use it in the real world just yet, take any info about it with a grain of salt.
As we mentioned in the article about the Mi Note 10, a sensor with such a high resolution runs the risk of not being able to take good night/low-light shots. But, let's wait and see how it fares in the real world.
Galaxy S11 Plus May Have a 5,000 mAh Battery
Most of us agree that we need bigger batteries much more than we need bigger sensors or storage space. Thankfully, it looks like the Galaxy S11 Plus may come with a huge 5,000 battery!
This is coming from the same big leakster. But, again, this is nothing but pure speculation right now.
One of the reasons that we think this is true is because the Galaxy S11 Plus is very likely to come with a high refresh-rate display and 5G connectivity. You need a lot of power to support all that stuff.
The Notch May Be Here to Stay
Some early rumors about the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 suggested that the phones would come without a notch or any bezels for that matter. Unfortunately, to the disappointment of many, (And to the enjoyment of others), both the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series came with Samsung's Infinity-O display.
If you're one of the people who don't like this kind of notch, then we're sorry to let you know that the new generation is most likely going to come with it as well.
As far as we know, the hole at the center of the device is going to be smaller than what the S10 has and even smaller than the Note 10's. So, even if you don't like it, maybe it's not going to be noticeable this time.
Now, a smaller notch means that we're likely to miss out on some of the goodies that the Pixel 4 offers. Like 3D face recognition, Motion Sense, and things like that.
We May Have 5 Different Galaxy S11 Variants
So far, there are rumored to be 5 different variants of the S11.
- Standard S11 (S11e?) LTE at 6.2 inches
- Standard S11 5G at 6.4 inches
- S11+ LTE at 6.7 inches
- S11+ 5G at 6.7 inches
- Galaxy S11 5G at 6.9 inches
The screen sizes will most likely change over time. But, everything else makes perfect sense to us.
Now that 5G will slowly become more and more mainstream, we expect that any upcoming flagships, such as the S11 series will offer both LTE and pricier 5G variants as well.
4 Cameras - 4 Colors
Although Samsung has previously released a quad-camera phone, most of its flagships stick with a dual or triple-camera setup.
Still, according to our sources, the new Galaxy S11 series is going to come with four cameras. Again, take that info with a grain of salt. It's way too early to make accurate predictions.
Other than that, there are also the different colors to talk about. At the moment, this is all we know:
- Galaxy S11: Blue, Grey, and Pink
- Galaxy S11e: Blue, Grey, and Black (At least)
We're expecting to see at least one silver variant in there. But, only time will tell.
That's all we've got for now. Do keep in mind that these are nothing but rumors, predictions, and leaks.
Even if something is 100% accurate, there is no guarantee that Samsung won't change their mind down the line. So, take everything that's mentioned here with a grain of salt.
