We have been handled to our first have a look at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus simply over a month in the past, when leaked schematics have been was 3D renders by leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer and 91Mobiles. Nonetheless, there have been some questions in regards to the digital camera module in these renders — particularly regarding how messily the lenses have been laid out. Now, Hemmerstoffer has launched a brand new picture that reveals the S11 Plus’s rear digital camera module in larger element.
Delivered through Hemmerstoffer’s well-known @OnLeaks Twitter account, the picture reveals a close-up of what’s claimed to be from the S11 Plus’s remaining prototype. It consists of three lenses on the left facet of the oblong module, and a single lens and flash unit on the precise facet. The left-hand facet of the module matches earlier leaks from Ice Universe, which confirmed only one facet of the cellphone’s module.

It’s anticipated that the three lenses on the left facet will embody a monstrous 108-megapixel lens, which is able to use “pixel-binning” — a course of that may mix 9 pixels into one for a lot larger efficiency in low gentle. Additionally anticipated is an ultra-wide-angle lens, and the long-awaited periscope 5x telephoto zoom lens. The periscope lens is discovered on the backside of the module, given away by its distinctive sq. opening. A periscope lens runs alongside the cellphone’s physique to present the longer zoom lens the room it must function and makes use of a periscope to redirect gentle into it.
These three lenses are more likely to be the celebs of the present — but when the Galaxy S11 Plus goes to dislodge one of the best digital camera telephones, it’s going to wish the assistance of the time-of-flight lens rumored to be on the right-hand facet of the module. A time-of-flight sensor makes use of lasers to precisely measure 3D area, permitting a cellphone to simulate background blur extra successfully. We’re seeing extra of those sensors seem on flagship telephones, and it’s clear Samsung’s going to have to incorporate one if it desires to maintain up with the more and more superior cameras in the marketplace.
Additionally included is a flash unit — which, contemplating the power of night time mode pictures on flagship telephones lately — is wanting an increasing number of more likely to be consigned to flashlight obligation for many of your cellphone’s lifetime. Nonetheless, it’s extraordinarily helpful to have in that context, and we definitely wouldn’t need the standard flash to go the way in which of the headphone jack. Although now we’ve stated it, it appears inevitable.
With a launch date anticipated in February, don’t anticipate the deluge of Samsung Galaxy S11 leaks to cease any time quickly. We’ll replace you as quickly as we hear extra information.
