Samsung Galaxy S11 - the first information about the main flagship of the first half of 2020
2019 is confidently coming to its logical conclusion, but for the tech community, this is only an advantage. After all, with the onset of 2020, a new stage of technologies’ development will begin and smartphones will take a lead in it! One of the most anticipated devices of 2020 is, of course, the Samsung Galaxy S11. Already more and more rumors are appearing on the network about what kind of machine it will be, what kind of chips it will offer, and when it will approximately be released. In today's article, all the latest leaks regarding the Galaxy S11, which was collected.
Galaxy S11 - Preview and Features
Traditionally it is worth starting with the design and appearance of the device. Although online you can find patents that Samsung an additional screen on the back of the smartphone, it’s not applicable for the Galaxy S11. It is worth agreeing with leading analysts who do not believe that Samsung will risk releasing the Galaxy S11 with two screens because this line of smartphones is a classic. But what then will the flagship of the company look like in 2020? In fact, this is not such an intrigue, since at the output we get a symbiosis of Galaxy S10 + Galaxy Note 10. From the first Galaxy S11 will inherit the rear panel with the location of the cameras with a horizontal orientation, and from the second front part. It is reported that the smartphone will also have a frameless display with a single selfie camera located in the center, however, the Galaxy S11 has a noticeably smaller opening for the front.
There is also no intrigue about the hardware. The flagship is expected to be equipped with the top-end Snapdragon 865 processor, which Qualcomm will present in December this year. But this is for the American market because in other countries the smartphone will work on the basis of the Exynos 9825 proprietary chipset. On the gadget, we will see from 8 to 12 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of permanent memory. The diagonal of the display should be expected at level 6 with a tail of inches and a resolution of AMOLED matrix of at least 2K +.
Things are much more interesting with cameras since nobody knows the exact information here yet. There are only assumptions, among which the most objective is the following:
- The main sensor at 108 MP;
- The presence of a 5-fold optical zoom;
- Depth camera, responsible for determining the depth of the photo;
- Wide-angle camera with a viewing angle of at least 120 degrees;
- The presence of a spectrometer (material sensor).
If with the first four points everything is more or less clear, then with the last it is not very clear. If you believe the leaks, then this same spectrometer will be responsible for the analysis of the chemical composition of the recorded object. The appearance of such a sensor is not just a myth, but already a reality thanks to a Samsung patent back in September. But time will show how useful and efficient it will be. The main thing is that Samsung does not change its traditions, because as you know, Samsung flagships have always been considered innovative.
For the remaining parameters, there is no information at all, but after a little reflection and recalling the characteristics of the Galaxy S10, you can predict the actions of the brand. The battery capacity is worth waiting no lower than 3500 mAh, fast charging in the Galaxy S11 will offer from 15 to 25 watts, and the smartphone will also have Qi wireless charging.
Galaxy S11 - release date
With a high degree of certainty, we can say that the flagship will again be presented at the MWC 2020 Electronics Exhibition, which is scheduled to start on February 24. As for the cost, it can grow a little relative to the starting price tag of the Galaxy S10.
