The Galaxy S11 is Samsung’s next high-end smartphone. Expected early 2020, it is already announced as the ultimate South Korean manufacturer. On the menu of the future flagship, we find a triple / quadruple photo sensor of 108 Mp, a screen Infinity-O hole and a design inspired by the last Note 10. Data sheet, release date, price … We take stock together on the first information available on the Galaxy S11.
Inspired by the success of its trio Galaxy S10, Samsung is expected to launch three versions of its Galaxy S11 early 2020. It is expected to discover a Galaxy S11 standard, a Galaxy S11e (a cheaper version) and a Galaxy S11 + (a large format variant). According to a rumor relayed by Evan Blass, Samsung now consider merging the Note and the Galaxy . If the manufacturer came to act, the Galaxy S11 could finally be called “Galaxy One” to mark the renewal of both ranges. For the time being, it is still only noise corridors.
Release date and price
Given its usual release schedule, Samsung is expected to present the Galaxy S11 in the course of February 2020 . A first leak points to the date of February 18, 2020 . Like last year, the conference would take place in the city of San Francisco. It is not impossible that the manufacturer decides to shake the main lines of its calendar. Nevertheless, nothing indicates for the moment that Samsung has chosen to move forward or backward the release of Galaxy S11.
Price side, we can expect a rate similar to that of Galaxy S10 . The variant “e” would thus be marketed around $1,000 in USA, and even more for upgraded memory or models. For now, these are only estimates. We will update this file as soon as we get more information.
Information about Galaxy S11 is still rare. According to rumors, some models in the range would be sublimated with an AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90 or 120 Hz . We imagine that this feature will be reserved for S11 and S11 +, the two most premium versions. Samsung could thus align with Google, OnePlus, Asus and Xiaomi.
Processor, RAM and battery
Not surprisingly, the US Galaxy S11 will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC . Models sold on the American market should rely on the SoC Exynos 9830 developed by Samsung. The manufacturer has not yet lifted the veil on this processor. It is expected to find up to 12 GB of RAM on some models. Side autonomy, a bet on the integration of batteries ranging from 3000 to 4500 mAh. The firm could nevertheless create the surprise by aiming even higher with this new generation.
According to Ice Universe, famous leaker, Samsung will put the package on the photograph . The first rumors rely on the integration of a quadruple photo sensor consisting of a main module of 108 Mp . It would be the ISOCELL Bright HMX designed in partnership with Xiaomi. This sensor offers a definition equivalent to that of a high-end digital SLR camera.
This photo module would be accompanied by three other photo sensors. It would include a ToF sensor dedicated to the detection of depth of field. The S11 would benefit from more than an x5 optical zoom developed by Corephotonics, an Israeli firm bought by Samsung. Samsung Electro – Mechanics has also begun the mass production of a new photo module with an optical zoom x5 in May 2019.
A fingerprint reader under the screen more convenient?
Samsung is currently working on a much larger fingerprint reader than the Galaxy S10 . The Galaxy S11’s built-in sensor has an “active area” of 64 millimeters, compared to only 32 millimeters for the S10. Unlocking your mobile would be accessible on a wider area of the screen.
An infrared spectrometer?
According to a recent patent filed in the United States by Samsung, the Galaxy S11 could be equipped with a new infrared spectrography sensor . This device would be able to break down the light emitted by an object to deduce its composition. The smartphone could therefore provide accurate nutritional information on food by simply scanning with a sensor on the back.
According to the first renderings on the canvas (and visible below), the S11 would be sublimated with a screen found Infinity-O surrounded by thin borders. The punch in the slab is smaller and placed in the center in the manner of the Galaxy Note 10 . We would also find Aurora colors inspired by Note 10 . On the back, the camera placed horizontally would return.
