Samsung Galaxy S11 and S11+ 2020 Flagship Android Smartphones : What We Know So Far

Information - both confirmed and purported - about the 2020 flagship smartphone models Samsung Galaxy S11 and S11+ are now starting to surface online.

These handsets will supersede the well-received Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ from 2019 and as such, they are expected to come with superior features and technical specifications compared to their predecessors.

First, let's start with what has been supposedly confirmed by Samsung about these devices.

Looking at the China Compulsory Certificate application filed by Samsung Vietnam Thai Nguyen for the new model SM-G9860, which insiders are claiming to be the Samsung Galaxy S11, it's clear that the handset will come with 5G connectivity support and 25W Fast Charging. (source) The mobile data speed support is expected but the charging speed is a bit surprising because Samsung Galaxy Note10 from 2019 already came with 45W support. Nonetheless, this is still a level up from the Samsung Galaxy S10, which merely had 15W Fast Battery Charging.

Now, here the more exciting albeit merely rumored features of the Samsung Galaxy S11 and S11+.

A teardown of Samsung's new Camera App revealed that the 2020 flagship models could very well support 8K video recording and come with a 108 MegaPixel main camera made by the Korean Giant itself. (source)

What's particularly interesting about the said 108 MP main camera is that it will supposedly enable a higher level pixel binning technology. Compared to older powerhouse cameraphones that combine four pixels into one to deliver clearer or more crisp images, the Samsung Galaxy S11 and S11+, they say, will be capable of merging - get this - 9 pixels into just one super pixel, which should greatly enhance these devices' low light imaging performance.

Samsung, like Huawei and Apple, has consistently been at the forefront of mobile imaging innovations so I'm expecting nothing but the best cameraphone performance from these upcoming releases. I mean, since Samsung Galaxy S7, the company's S-Series and Note line have been giving us some of the photos and videos captured using a smartphone.

For the internal hardware, both the 6.7-inch Samsung Galaxy S11 and 6.9-inch S11+ are expected to be powered by the new Exynos 990 processor and to have 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage at the minimum.

To those who still use Samsung Galaxy S8, S9, S9 Plus, Note8, or Note9 as a daily driver, do you think you'd finally upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S11 or S11+ if these information would turn out accurate? Let me know your thoughts.
