The Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 they have been one of the most important cell phones of this year, but the rumors of the main novelties of the next flagship phone of the South Korean company, Galaxy S11, are already becoming known little by little.

With this, we already have the expectation that the Galaxy S11 would bring great improvements against cell phones like the Galaxy S10 Plus Y Galaxy Note 10 Plus.

108 megapixel camera

Although this week we already met the first cell phone with a 108 megapixel camera with the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 (or Mi CC9 Pro), Samsung would not be left behind in this kind of sensors with so many megapixels: it would also integrate a sensor 108 megapixels in the Galaxy S11.

Although most cell phones have currently had a 12, 16 or 32 megapixel camera, the possibility of having a camera with up to almost 10 times the resolution could allow more detail to be captured on the scene.

However, many manufacturers have preferred in recent years to use this class of sensors when combining pixels to reduce the total resolution, but obtaining more clarity and better colors.

It is possible that Samsung believes that it is no longer necessary to combine so many pixels to offer better results for other improvements in the sensor and thus could take photos with it up to 108 megapixels.

This would also mean that each photo would take up more space, so storage would become more important. Of course, Samsung has offered at least 128GB in the S10 or 256GB in the case of the Galaxy Note 10.

5X optical zoom camera

Although the 108 megapixel camera is perhaps the most attractive of the Galaxy S11 at this time, according to the South Korean publication TheElec, that Samsung flagship phone would also have three more cameras: a telephoto that would allow 5X optical zoom like the Huawei P30 Pro, a wide angle and also a time of flight (ToF) lens like the one found in the Galaxy Note 10 Plus.

The second big news is the telephoto lens that would allow you to make 5X optical zoom because together with the P30 Pro and the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom they would be basically the only ones to offer this kind of function.

Even, Samsung filed a trademark application for "Space Zoom" in Europe, which could be the function that 5X optical zoom would represent.

Best capacity battery in the Galaxy S11E

Another important novelty would come through the battery.

Although only Galaxy S11E battery information has been leaked at the moment, which would be the smallest, it is possible that this change is transmitted throughout the whole family.

As the GalaxyClub blog found in the South Korean security organization, the Galaxy S11E would increase the battery capacity from 3,100mAh to 3,730mAh.

With this, it is expected that in the best case the smallest of the S11E is not the only one that receives a significant increase in the capacity of its battery.
