Samsung Galaxy S11 series: What has been leaked so far

In Phones by Nicole BatacLeave a Comment

The Samsung Galaxy S11 series might be months away from its release (think mid- to end-February 2020), but the leaks have started to trickle in. The newest information comes from prolific leaker Evan Blass — or @evleaks, as he’s known on Twitter — who has shared screen-size information on the upcoming flagship phones.

Samsung looks to be super-sizing the S11 with significantly larger displays. The smallest is tipped at either 6.2 or 6.4 inches, followed by 6.7 inches, and then 6.9 inches. By comparison, the Galaxy S10 lineup has 5.8-, 6.1-, and 6.4-inch screens.

All models will reportedly have curved-edge displays, meaning the flat panel seen in the Samsung Galaxy S10e will not be making a comeback.

Blass claims the two smaller models of the Samsung Galaxy S11 series will support both 4G and 5G, while the 6.9-inch version will only come with a 5G option.

Samsung is gearing up for this launch. The company just trademarked the SAMOLED display type with the Korean Intellectual Property Office and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

In Korea, the trademark application has been classified as Class 9/11 with a description that mentions OLED display, smartphone display, monitor, television screen, digital signage, and computer screen. This filing could mean the Galaxy S11 models will feature the SAMOLED display. What the “S” stands for is unclear at the moment.

One of the earlier rumors includes the arrival of Samsung’s 108-megapixel sensor on its flagship series

One of the previous rumors surrounding the S11 includes the arrival of the company’s 108-megapixel sensor on its flagship line. Software development community XDA Developers found a mention of this resolution mode in the Samsung Galaxy camera app, suggesting that the Galaxy S11 series will come equipped with the said sensor. It’s the same one used by the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha and Mi CC9 Pro, whose global version is called the Xiaomi Mi Note 10.

The S11 will reportedly be available in at least three colors: blue, gray, and black. The S10e, on the other hand, will supposedly come in blue, gray, and pink.

Other leaks include the following:

  • The Samsung Galaxy S11e will feature a bigger, 4,000mAh battery compared with the S10e’s 3,100mAh battery. The one on the Galaxy S11 Plus could even go as high as 5,000mAh.
  • The Galaxy S11 could skip the 90Hz screen and go directly to a display that has a 120Hz refresh rate.
  • The trademark application for the term “Space Zoom” could be like Huawei’s moon mode and Google’s astrophotography mode.
