Samsung Galaxy S11 will reportedly launch with 3 screen sizes across 5 models

The Samsung Galaxy S11 will not be launched until February 2020, but cascades of leaks have been painting a picture of the smartphone, with the latest rumors focusing on its screen sizes and models.

Reliable leaker Evan Blass tweeted preliminary details for the Galaxy S11, claiming that the smartphone will come with three options for screen sizes. The smallest screen is either a 6.2-inch or 6.4-inch display, on a model that is expected to be called the Galaxy S11e. The other two screen sizes are 6.7 inches and 6.9 inches, likely for the Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S11+, respectively. In comparison, the Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 5G only have 6.4-inch and 6.75-inch screens.

The Galaxy S11 lineup, however, will go beyond these three models, according to Blass. He said that the Galaxy S11e and Galaxy S11 will be offered with LTE and 5G variants, while the Galaxy S11+ will only support LTE, for a total of five models. Blass added that all of them will feature curved-edge displays, dropping the traditional 5.8-inch flat display of the Galaxy S10e.

Blass’ new leaks for the Galaxy S11 follow a pair of rumors over the past week. Fellow tipster Ice Universe claimed that the device’s camera will jump to 108 megapixels, from just 12 megapixels on the Galaxy S10. Photos taken at 108 MP will allow cropping down without losing detail and will allow the smartphone to take videos at 6K resolution.

In a separate post, Ice Universe also claimed that the upcoming lineup will feature much larger batteries than its predecessors. The Galaxy S11e is rumored to pack a 4,000 mAh battery, which, if true, will represent a massive increase from the 3,100 mAh battery of the Galaxy S10e. The Galaxy S11+, meanwhile, is said to be powered by a 5,000 mAh battery.

The larger batteries, however, may not translate to more time in between charges, as features such as 5G support and the rumored increased refresh rate of as high as 120Hz will make the smartphones use up more juice.

The Galaxy S11 is rumored to be introduced on February 18, in advance of Mobile World Congress 2020. If this is true, Samsung fans will only have just over three months of waiting time for the official unveiling of the company’s new flagship smartphones.

I can’t believe how good the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s new display is
Samsung galaxy S24 Ultra display.

In my years of reviewing and using Samsung phones, I’ve come to expect top-notch displays from them. Samsung's Galaxy flagships have some of the sharpest and brightest screens, and the same was expected from the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

When the smartphone launched last week, I was looking forward to the new Galaxy AI features and the 5x optical zoom. But in my four days of using the Galaxy S4 Ultra, its the display that took me by surprise – for good reason.

When did camera zooms get so complicated? These days, we don’t just have a single number like 3x to deal with, but many other zoom levels,. we also need to understand optical zoom, hybrid zoom, periscope zoom, Space Zoom, and a whole lot more. Samsung has confused the issue again with the Galaxy S24 Ultra, which has a 5x optical zoom and a 10x hybrid zoom, meaning it’s different from the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

The Galaxy S24 series came out swinging as the only non-Pixel phone to run Google's Gemini Nano model locally, opening the doors for a whole bunch of new AI-fueled features, some of which don't even need an internet connection to pull off their magic.

Yes, Samsung will charge money for some of these flashy AI features, but they really stand out with their own functional merits. What follows is a brief description of all the core AI-powered features that Samsung is serving on the Galaxy S24 series phones.
