Samsung Galaxy S11 and S11e design revealed

With less than 40 days to the new year, the Samsung Galaxy S11 series is expected to be revealed in the first quarter of 2020. Ahead of the launch, we now get a clearer picture of what to expect thanks to high-resolution renders provided by renowned leakster @Onleaks.

Samsung Galaxy S11

For Samsung’s 2020 lineup, it appears that they are going for a rectangular camera bump that has an “L-shaped” array similar to the upcoming Galaxy A51. The Samsung Galaxy S11 is said to feature a triple-camera setup plus one additional 3D ToF sensor for depth effects.

In the imaging department, it is rumoured that the Galaxy S11 will feature a new 108MP camera and a new telephoto shooter with 5X optical zoom. You can also look forward to new camera features including 8K video recording.

Upfront, it gets an Infinity-O display like the Note 10, which comes with a centre-mounted punch-hole selfie camera. Since this is a Galaxy S series, the top corners are more rounded compared to the Note.

According to @Onleaks, the S11’s display will be significantly larger than the current model and it ranges between 6.63″ to 6.7″. As a comparison, the current S10 has a 6.1″ QuadHD+ display while the Galaxy Note 10 comes with a 6.3″ Full HD+ display. It is also rumoured that the S11 may feature a fluid 120Hz refresh rate display which will be great for gaming.

If you look around, the volume rockers and power buttons are now placed on the right side of the device, which is a complete opposite of the Galaxy Note 10 series. Personally, I think having the buttons placed on the right is more practical especially when it is used in landscape mode.

Another feature that’s missing is the 3.5mm headphone jack. This is to be expected since Samsung has killed the traditional audio port on the Galaxy Note 10, Note 10+, Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy A80.

Samsung Galaxy S11e

Apart from the S11, there’s also the S11e which is the smallest model in the series. It also gets a similar display that has a centre-aligned punch-hole while the rear gets a triple-camera setup with a similar rectangular bump. Since it still has a normal power button, the S11e appears to be coming with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

According to @Onleaks’ source, the S11e’s display is somewhere between 6.2″ to 6.3″, which is a massive upgrade from the S10e’s 5.8″ display. Like the bigger S11, it also lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack.

At the moment, @Onleaks has only revealed two models. There’s still one remaining model and that’s the larger Galaxy S11+. All three models are expected to run on either a new Exynos 990 processor or a Snapdragon 865 for US markets. You can also expect these devices to run on Android 10 with the latest OneUI 2 skin on top.
