The design of the Samsung Galaxy S11 is officially finalized. The Galaxy S11 is likely the most awaited flagship of 2020 and new information indicates that Samsung will soon begin planning for the launch of the lineup, which in turn means a season of exciting leaks is just around the corner.
Research and development has been completed for the Galaxy S11
Samsung has officially finished the design and internal specification of next year’s Galaxy S11 smartphones after months of intensive research and development. The news arrives with tipster Ice Universe’s courtesy and fits perfectly with the usual development timeline of the company–R&D for the Galaxy S10 series ended on November 1, 2018.

Details have not been provided on what Samsung has planned for its next-generation smartphones, but multiple reports indicate that the phones will build on the foundations of this year’s lineup. Samsung is expected to reuse the AMOLED display technology from Infinity-O, but make certain changes that are likely to mean thinner bezels and smaller punch holes.
The design of the Samsung Galaxy S11 is officially finalized
The successor to the compact and reasonably priced Galaxy S10e is likely to stick with a flat-screen and single punch hole, but the standard Galaxy S11 may sport a rounded edge panel with two holes instead of one. Alternatively, it could opt for a wider implementation like the one featured on this year’s Galaxy S10 + which is large enough to house two sensors, one of which could be a dedicated time-of-flight sensor for a more reliable and secure face unlocking system.
On the other hand, the larger Samsung Galaxy S11+ may include up to three front cameras. Recently the firm invented an extra-wide punch hole, although one historically reliable tipster said instead the machine could have three separate holes. Within them, two selfie cameras, one of which is likely to feature a wide-angle lens, and a Time-of-Flight sensor are expected to be placed.
Upgraded rear camera systems on all devices are expected
It is expected that the improved selfie setups will be compatible with new camera systems. The Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S11 + flagships will move to an amazing quad-camera configuration that is led by an all-new 16-megapixel sensor designed to replace Samsung’s 12-megapixel replacement on its phones since the Galaxy S7.
This will certainly be paired with an improved ultra-wide-angle camera and a new Time-of-Flight sensor for better portrait photography and more accurate AR content. A new 5x periscope zoom camera that will contend against the introduction of Huawei and replace the existing 2x telephoto lens maybe finishing the installation.
Samsung’s cheaper Galaxy S11e will retain one of the other two main and ultra-wide angle cameras found on its flagship siblings. The most logical move from both a branding and price perspective would include fitting the phone with a Time-of-Flight sensor and adding the zoom feature as an exclusive for the more expensive devices, but Samsung has amazed us all in the past and with the camera setup of the Galaxy S11e could do so again.
The Exynos 990 or the Snapdragon 865
Both Samsung’s 2020 flagships for the US market are expected to be powered by the next-generation Snapdragon 865 from Qualcomm, while those bound for Europe and other international markets are expected to benefit from the recently launched Exynos 990.
It should be 12 GB of RAM in combination with the chipset on the premium models, while the cheaper Galaxy S11e would benefit from 8 GB. However it is unknown whether all versions will ship as usual with 256 GB of internal storage or whether Samsung will choose to stick to the budget flagship with 128 GB.
Completing the Galaxy S11 series should be Android 10 straight out of the box combined with One UI 2.1, standard support for 5 G networks, Samsung’s 45W fast charging system for premium models, and no 3.5 mm headphone jack.
