2019 is nearing its end and for all major phone makers, the launch season is over – sort of. That means we start looking forward to next year’s models and as has been the tradition, Samsung is usually expected to come out first with its flagship S series phones. In 2020, we expect the Galaxy S11 series to come out but thanks to the latest bunch of leaks from OnLeaks and 91Mobiles, we even know what the S11 could look like when it launches in February, probably.
The first set of renders of the Samsung Galaxy S11 are out and as the rumours have been floating around, the Galaxy S11 will take massive design cues from the Galaxy Note 10 and some current Galaxy M series models. There’s no folding display on the Galaxy S11 yet but Samsung could be looking to take on Apple and Google this time with a robust set of cameras. And if you want the numbers, there are five cameras this time.
Let’s start at the front. The Galaxy S11 still retains the curvy design with rounded corners and curved edges on the display. The hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera now shifts from corners to the centre, just like the Galaxy Note 10. The bezels on top and sides are quite slim whereas the chin is narrow too. The edges have the usual volume and power buttons, which also hint Samsung will stick to the in-display fingerprint sensor on the S11 as well.
However, it’s the back where things get interesting. The Galaxy S11 has five cameras at the back and if you must have guessed it, they have been arranged in a similar fashion that Google and Apple followed for the Pixel 4 and iPhone 11 Pro respectively. It’s hard to digest at first glance but these cameras could offer great photography that rivals the other flagships.
