We’re still many months away from the Galaxy S11 series release. However, this can’t stop the rumor mill from spinning out some details about the upcoming Samsung flagship. Back in May, Samsung announced it started mass production of its new 5x optical module, now a new report from South-Korea claims that the Galaxy S11 smartphone will ship with a new periscope module alongside the 108MP shooter.
Samsung Electro-Mechanics published a video which shows the new sensor in action. The module comes with a thin 5mm profile which will allow it not to protrude too much from the back of the phone. Furthermore, the OIS functions are integrated into this new module. Worth noting that those are just speculations at this point. However, makes sense for Samsung to debut their new camera system with next year’s flagship S-devices.
With the use of a periscope 5x zoom system, Samsung’s next year’s flagships will be more aligned with what is seeing in some Chinese flagships. The 108MP shooter along should capture impressive photos, the addition of an optical zoom system may further improve details in some pictures. As we previously stated, it’s to soon to make conclusions.
The Galaxy S11 series should debut after the MWC 2020, until then, we should see a lot of new leaks and rumors spreading in the web.
