We are still months away from the official announcement of Samsung Galaxy S11. But if recent rumors are to be believed, then Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone will feature a 108MP camera sensor.
While we will have to wait to find out the validity of the claim, it won’t be surprising if Samsung brings the camera sensor to its flagship smartphone. The company unveiled its 64MP camera sensor earlier this year and shortly afterwards, Realme XT and Redmi Note 8 Pro were launched with ridiculous 64MP camera sensor with Xiaomi is set to launch another smartphone with 108MP camera sensor later this week.
In a recent tweet, Ice Universe claimed that Samsung will bring the camera to Galaxy S11. However, Samsung will introduce a newer model than the one it announced earlier this year thanks to its partnership with Xiaomi.
However, as you might already know, higher solution doesn’t necessarily mean better image quality. For instance, the 108MP sensor is bigger than a traditional smartphone camera sensor. While the sensor gives smartphones advantage due to increased ability to absorb light, it has smaller individual pixels meaning the camera will struggle in low-light environment. Something that has dominated smartphone camera for a while now. Interestingly, Samsung is using its Tetracell technology to produce 27MP images.
As Samsung has fallen behind in terms of camera compared to its competitors over last couple of years, it’s likely that the company’s main focus is improving the camera system for Galaxy S11. As a result, it will be interesting to see how Samsung improves its technology. As we are still several months away from the release of Galaxy S11, we should learn more about the upcoming smartphone over the next couple of months.
