What you need to know
- According to a new rumor, the Galaxy S11 series phones will come equipped with a 48MP telephoto camera.
- Previous rumors have claimed the Galaxy S11 trio will have 5x optical zoom and 100x "space zoom."
- Apart from the new 48MP telephoto camera, the Galaxy S11 series phones are expected to feature a 108MP primary sensor with Nonacell technology.
Reliable tipster Ice Universe had claimed in a tweet yesterday that the Samsung Galaxy S11+ will use a custom 108MP ISOCELL Bright HM1 primary sensor with Nonacell technology. The tipster has now revealed that all three Galaxy S11 series phones will feature an impressive 48MP telephoto camera.
In a new tweet, Ice Universe claimed that the Galaxy S11, S11+, and S11e will all feature telephoto cameras with "no less than 48MP" resolution. This isn't the first time that the Galaxy S11 has been rumored to feature a 48MP telephoto camera. Last month, MatrixLife's Nick Oikonomou had said that the Galaxy S11 and S11+ will have a 48MP telephoto module with 10x lossless zoom and 100x hybrid zoom.
Samsung's current flagship phones, including the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, feature a 12MP telephoto sensor with 2x optical zoom. Flagship phones from OPPO and Huawei, including those with 5x optical zoom, have a 13MP or lower resolution telephoto camera. If the latest rumor is accurate and the Galaxy S11 does include a 48MP telephoto sensor, it is possible that the wide-angle camera will also see a megapixel bump.
What also remains to be seen is if the more affordable Galaxy S11e will have the same 108MP primary sensor as the Galaxy S11 and S11+.
