What to expect from Samsung Galaxy S11?

With the high stakes among new smartphones and new iPhone 11 Pro's success, the competition has really heated up in the camera department. Some are saying that it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S11+ could have five cameras on the rear (or five sensors, they might not all be independent cameras)!

With the assembly of this year’s new phones, people are now wondering what’s next? One of the new exciting models is turning out to be Samsung Galaxy S11. There is a sudden rave about its camera, which is expected to be superior to any mobile phone camera yet.

What is so great about the camera?

According to leaks, the smartphone will feature a 108 MP camera which will be able to capture high-quality images even in low light conditions. This pixel pattern is apparently almost double of that of Galaxy S10. A source revealed that the pixel size which is 2.4 microns. This means that it has the largest pixel size on any smartphone to date and promises way better lowlight shots and less noise.

In fact, famous Samsung leakster Ice Universe, revealed that the smartphone will come with 9-in-1 pixel merging technology to achieve a 2.4µm pixel size. Thus, the final result will be a 12-megapixel camera with superior light sensitivity and great noise suppression. Considering that Samsung calls its 4-in-1 process “Tetra cell Technology”, this new pixel binning technology will most probably be called “Nanocell Technology”.

It is also believed the sensor will be almost twice the size of the Galaxy S10’s equivalent and default to 27-megapixel photos thanks to pixel binning technology.

If reports are to be believed, the sensor will also be accompanied by up to four other cameras on the premium Galaxy S11+. Leading the way looks set to be an upgraded ultra-wide-angle shooter and a dedicated Time-of-flight sensor for improved portrait photography. Also expected are two independent zoom cameras. The first will probably feature a telephoto lens that enables 2x optical zoom while the second should help Samsung compete with Huawei by incorporating a periscope-like lens capable of 5x optical zoom.

These two cameras will work alongside the Galaxy S11’s main one to produce even more impressive levels of zoom. Specifically, Samsung could enable up to 50x hybrid zoom and an astonishing 100x digital zoom as part of an upcoming feature that may be marketed as ‘Space Zoom.’ To compare, the industry benchmark currently stands at 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom thanks to the Huawei P30 Pro. These results are still incredibly but would ultimately pale in comparison to the rumored Galaxy S11+ levels.

This set of new models are expected to launch on 18th February 2020 in San Francisco. Till then, photography enthusiasts will have to hold their horses!c
