Samsung Galaxy S11 to reportedly come with 108MP sensor

South Korean smartphone maker Samsung follows the tradition of unveiling its flagship Galaxy S smartphone in February/March every year. The company’s next Galaxy S11 series is expected to debut in the first quarter of 2020. Although there are still a few months left, details have surfaced on the internet regarding the upcoming Galaxy S11. The smartphone is expected to come with a refreshed design and significant upgrades compared to its predecessor. It is also rumored to feature triple cameras on the front. 

According to a reliable tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S11 is expected to sport a 108MP sensor on the back. It will make use of a second-gen Samsung image sensor instead of the current ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor that the company co-developed with Xiaomi for the Mi Note 10. To recall, the sensor was announced back in August this year. The key difference between the current and new sensor is still unknown. The current HMX sensor uses 4-in-1 pixel-binning Tetracell technology for capturing bright shots in low-light. The new sensor is expected to feature better image and video processing capabilities. The Galaxy S11 is also rumored to come with a 5x optical zoom module.

Apart from the camera leaks, the Galaxy S11 is rumoured to come with a taller 20:9 aspect ratio screen. It could be powered by Qualcomm’s next-gen Snapdragon 865 or Samsung’s in-house Exynos 9830 chipset, both of which are not announced yet. The device is detailed to run on OneUI 2.1 which will be based on Android 10.  

We expect more details regarding the Galaxy S11 to surface online leading up to the launch event in February.
