Samsung wiil be announcing the Galaxy S11 series in February, and if a recent report is true, that means, the 2020 Galaxy S flagships will go official on February 11.
This information was revealed by Nick Oikonomou of MatrixLife, who claims to have seen the Galaxy S11 lineup in a closed meeting.
Oikonomou went further to reveal the launch date of the S11 series, and also confirms a few features of the Galaxy S11, S11e, and S11+.
According to him, the S11 series will be powered by the Exynos 990 SoC but as always there will be a Snapdragon version as well. The trio will come with 25W fast charging support and a 25W charger will be bundled along.
As per the SIM type and support, there will be conventional SIM and eSIM versions, and the Galaxy S11 Plus variant will support 5G connectivity.
Earlier this month, the reliable leakster Evan Blass claimed that S11 and S11+ will sport 6.7-inch and 6.9-inch screens, respectively. The S11e, however, will either pack a 6.2-inch or a 6.4-inch display. Well, Oikonomou seems to confirms Blass’ leak and also says the S11 and the Plus model will boast 120Hz displays, and owners will be able to lock the refresh rate or let it change automatically.
The report further says that the Galaxy S11 series will feature screens with a punch hole in the center, and the display units are likely to use SAMOLED branding.
Moving on to the optics, Oikonomou says the S11 and S11+ will boast a quad camera setup with a 108MP unit as the main sensor.
The setup will include a 48MP telephoto unit with 10x lossless zoom and 100x hybrid zoom, and if a recent patent filing is anything to go by, we may see it arrive alongside a 5x optical zoom camera with OIS.
Oikonomou also says that the flagships will come with a feature that will allow users to record videos with the main camera and see a preview of what the shot will look like from the telephoto and ultrawide cameras. This might be the Director’s View feature that we heard about earlier this week.
Meanwhile Samsung submitted applications to EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) to trademark camera features called Single take and Video spin. The former will let owners capture a series of photos and short videos by panning their devices around for 15 seconds, but it’s unclear what exactly the latter will do.
The official unveiling of the Galaxy S11 is months away, but more details about it are likely to surface in the coming weeks.
