Samsung Galaxy S11 lineup to feature larger displays and 108MP cameras

On: November 11, 2019

Samsung‘s Galaxy S11 series of flagship phones are expected to go official in February 2020. Multiple sources have been steadily leaking information on the upcoming Galaxy S11 lineup. Reliable tipster Evan Blass has now shared details on the screen sizes of the three models of the Galaxy S11 series, along with some other key information.

According to Blass, the Galaxy S11 series will include three smartphones. The base model will come with a 6.2-inch or 6.4-inch display, while the mid-level model will sport a 6.7-inch screen. The top-end model will be equipped with a massive 6.9-inch display. These models are likely to be called the Galaxy S11e, Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S11+. The tipster did not share any details on the display resolutions of these devices.

Blass did not reveal whether the S11 models will have punch-hole displays. However, tipster Benjamin Geskin has shared renders based on the information revealed by Blass which suggest the above.

He added that the purported Galaxy S11+ will be available only in a 5G version However, the other smaller models will be available in 4G LTE and 5G options. Hence, the South Korean company could be selling five variants in the Galaxy S11 series. Additionally, all three S11 series phones will be equipped with curved screens. They are likely to feature the taller 20:9 aspect ratio displays as was rumored last month.

Geskin further stated that Samsung will go by its usual trend of launching its S-series phones in mid-to-late February. A recent leak had revealed that Samsung may hold a launch event for the S11 series on February 18th next year.

In related news, the South Korean tech giant has patented the SAMOLED moniker in the Smartphone Displays category with the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO). Hence, it appears that the displays of the Galaxy S11 models could be branded as SAMOLED.

Also, on examining the Samsung Camera app from the third One UI 2.0 beta that was rolled last week, XDA Developers has found that it features a 108-megapixel resolution mode. This indicates that the Galaxy S11 range could be equipped with a 108-megapixel primary lens in their rear camera systems. There could be support for 5x optical zoom as well, as spotted in a recent Space Zoom camera functionality trademark by Sammobile. The description of Space Zoom stated that it is a software to zoom into a subject without lowering image quality. This may allow Galaxy S11 users to capture clearer shots of the moon at night.
