Leaks Suggest Samsung Might Opt for a new and Exclusive 108MP Custom Sensor for the S11+

While we have seen the latest rumors suggesting 5 new iPhone models to launch in the coming year, more relevant is the news about Samsung. This is because Samsung launches its flagships earlier in the year. Since we’re merely days away from 2020, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy 11 lineup is right around the corner.

Speaking of the upcoming Galaxy lineup, a Tweet by Ice Universe suggests leaks about the camera on the Galaxy S11+ model. While we know that the current generation of Galaxy S flagships have some of the best set of cameras in the market, Samsung is out to compete even more vigorously to get the crown. The tweet suggests that the phone will feature a 1/1.3-inch sensor which would be custom made by Samsung.

A Little Background

Currently, the Samsung S10+ features three cameras with the main sensor being 12 megapixels. For the next iteration, Samsung is aiming for a new 108-megapixel sensor. Previously Samsung developed the Bright HMX sensor in partnership with Xiaomi. This is categorized in the same series which brought the 64-megapixel sensor to the Redmi Note. At the same time, Samsung announced that the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro would have the Bright HMX 108 megapixel camera. What this camera allows is crisp detail. It would allow users to zoom in all they want into a photo and still maintain the integrity of the individual pixels.

Now though, the tweet suggests that Samsung is working on yet another 108-megapixel sensor which would be custom and exclusive for the Samsung Galaxy S11+ model. Not only that but the sensor would be more expensive to produce than the regular Bright HMX 108 megapixel sensor. What this would imply is that the phone price is set to be a little higher too. One other thing is to be considered. Would Samsung go for 5G connectivity all through the board considering the latest work from T-Mobile has put the network at a larger scale in the US? If so, how would that affect the price? Either way, from this development what we take is that the latest series of Flagships from Samsung would be putting a lot of focus on the Camera.
