Hot on the heels of Samsung’s widely acclaimed Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus, excitement is already building for next year’s widely-leaked Galaxy S11 flagship and, in particular, its camera.
Tipped as a “new beginning” for Samsung, the Galaxy S11 is expected to bring with it a huge leap forward in camera hardware. This is sure to come as a relief to those frustrated at the company’s recent tendency to rely on out-dated 12-megapixel sensors while selling its best technologies to its competitors rather than using them in its own Galaxy range.
Now a new report in the Korean tech news outlet The Elec suggests we can expect a 5x optical zoom lens for the S11 in addition to Samsung’s latest 108-megapixel sensor, most recently seen in Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 4 and Mi Mix Alpha smartphones.
If the report is to be believed, next year’s Galaxy flagship will include a 5x optical zoom capability, thanks to a periscopic telephoto lens launched by Samsung Electro-Mechanics earlier this year – the same design already employed to great effect in OPPO’s Reno 5G and the Huawei P30 Pro. More
