Evan Blass, known as @evleaks on Twitter, put forward some details about the Galaxy S11: it will come in three sizes, including a 6.9 inch model; all will have curved screens at the edges and 5G connectivity option. In addition, data hidden in the Samsung reinforce rumors that the company’s next flagship will have a 108 megapixel camera.
The Galaxy S11 line will be launched at the end of February 2020, according to with Evan Blass, and will have five different models:
- 6.2 (or 6.4) inches, curved edges, 4G
- 6.2 (or 6.4) inches, curved edges, 4G and 5G
- 6.7 inches, curved edges, 4G
- 6.7 inches, curved edges, 4G and 5G
- 6.9 inches, curved edges, 4G and 5G
The larger model (Galaxy S11 +?) Would necessarily come with 5G support; that way, it would be possible to use this network in the future when it is activated in more countries. And all versions would have curved screens at the edges (the Galaxy S10e has a flat display).
Ishan Agarwal, who made several correct leaks previously, says the standard Galaxy S11 will be offered in black, gray and blue; while the more affordable Galaxy S11e would come in shades of blue, gray and pink. (He doesn’t mention the S10e’s canary yellow.)
Galaxy S11 may have 108 MP camera from Samsung
In addition, there are signs that the Galaxy S11 will have a 108 megapixel camera. O XDA Developers reverse-engineered the Samsung Camera app that comes with the One UI 2.0 beta, and discovered code that adds support for the 12,000 x 9,000 pixel resolution – that is, 108 MP.
There is nothing in the code confirming that this resolution is specifically for the Galaxy S11. However, the Korean website The Elec says the next Samsung flagship will adopt a 108 megapixel sensor and a 5x optical zoom lens.
The Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro, released internationally as the Mi Note 10, has a five-megapixel camera with 108 megapixels. It uses the Isocell Bright HMX sensor made by Samsung; that is, it is expected that this technology will also appear in the Galaxy line.
Evan Blass had said that Samsung also considers unifying the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines. “This can manifest itself in different ways, possibly with a Galaxy One instead of an S11,” he said.
It will take a while for Samsung to officially announce the Galaxy S11 or Galaxy One: the SamMobile received information that the Unpacked event will take place on February 18, 2020.
