Following news that Apple may develop a port-less iPhone in 2021, now some rumours have surfaced regarding the next flagship phone that Samsung is working on. More specifically the Galaxy S11, if that is indeed what it will be called, with Bloomberg reporting that the device will feature a massive 108MP sensor for its primary camera.
The news isn’t necessarily groundbreaking, especially as the South Korean manufacturer already showcased said 108MP sensor earlier this year, and another phone maker has already utilised it in its own device. That smartphone is the Xiaomi CC9 Pro, and soon the next Galaxy flagship phone could sport a similar setup.
The Bloomberg report goes on to add that an additional three sensors will be placed on the rear for the S11, with one dedicated for ultra-wide angle and the other for 5x optical zoom.
Added to this is talk of it being able to record 8K video footage, along with a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor to assist with depth sensing. This is something that Huawei and Apple have utilised recently in flagship phones, with it proving particularly helpful with portraiture and bokeh effect shots.
As such it looks like Samsung is aiming once again to be the top phone maker when it comes to performance, with the firm having lost its place to both Apple and Huawei in recent years.
What we’re also interested in seeing is Samsung’s approach to the front facing camera on the Galaxy S11. Will there be a punch hole or can Samsung surprise everyone by using the same embedded display tech that Xiaomi and Oppo have?
Either way we’ll need to wait until MWC 2020 to kick off in late February, when the device is expected to see the light of day.
