The Galaxy S11 or whatever Samsungs going to name it will launch next year in February. There are still 7 months left for the handset to launch but that doesn’t mean there are no rumors about the handset. There is a lot of information available already on the internet. Lets explore them so its easier for people who are on the fence thinking whether they should go for the Galaxy Note 10 or wait a little longer and get the Galaxy S11.
Alright, so first of all Samsung has given the code name Picasso for the S11. These code names have some significance to the handset and have hidden meanings. The Note 10 is named Da Vinci and it has to do with symmetry. Not really sure what Picasso has to do with the S11 but it is what they are currently using internally for the S11.Yes, the Galaxy S11 wont have the front camera hidden underneath the display. Oppo and Xiaomi may have showcased the prototypes of such smartphone but the tech isnt matured just yet. The image quality just sucks and theres no way Samsung is going to put that camera ina very high profile device like the Galaxy S phone. The under display camera tech may take another year or two to get fully matured.
Until then dont expect mainstream brands to adopt the technology. The S11 will have the punch hole type of camera able it the camera hole is going to be smaller. It is possible though the Galaxy S11 Plus might have a small pill-shaped cutout with the second camera being the time of flight sensor. Samsung has ramped up the production of these ToF sensors and the S11 should feature 2 time of flight sensors. One at the back and another at the front.
By the way, these ToF sensors are also capable of 3D facial scanner and it will be interesting to see whether or not Samsung would make use of that feature on the S11.The Snapdragon 865 and the Exynos 9830 will be built on Samsungs second-generation 7nm process.Of course, they will be better than the current 2019 processors but they will also support DDR5 RAM.That means the Galaxy S11 could possibly come with this new RAM considering DDR5 RAM is built by Samsung themselves and the mass production is already going on.DDR5 RAM will make things even faster and also will consume less power than DDR4.The basic performance of the handset is going to get better with this new type of RAM.
Ever since the Galaxy S7, Samsung has been using the same camera sensor on its flagshipS and Note phones.But thats going to change with the S11.It will have a bigger camera sensor for the first time in almost 4 years.Bigger sensor means it will take in more light and hence better quality.By the way, Samsung has recently announced the 5x optical zoom camera which can also does 10x hybrid zoom.There is a possibility that Samsung could use it on the S11 but Ice Universe says that might not happen.But hey, the plan could change, especially after the fact that the zoom camera on the Huawei P30 Pro was really a hit amongts the consumers.So yeah never say never.Other features include everything that were gonna see on the Galaxy Note 10.Basically there are going to be a lot of new features.
