We have already started receiving a lot of leaks and rumors surrounding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11 series of smartphones. The launch date of the series, however, was not known as of now. This might not stay the case for too long as the rumors mill has started digging intel on the same already. As per the recent report we have received the Samsung Galaxy S11 series would be launched on February 18, 2020, and it won’t come alone. We might be getting a new clamshell foldable smartphone by Samsung on the same day.
Samsung Galaxy S11 lineup and a clamshell foldable smartphone could be launching on February 18, 2020
As per a recent tweet by the famous tipster Ice Universe, the Samsung Galaxy S11 devices and a new foldable smartphone are likely to launch on the said date. It should be noted that the person has put it under the “rumored” tag as of now, so we might as well consider it to be one too. That said, the tipster has had a pretty decent track record when it comes to leaks. Furthermore, the tipped date more or less falls in line with Samsung’s launch schedule (before the Mobile World Congress events, every year).
As of now, little is known about the clamshell foldable device, but the same cannot be said for the Samsung Galaxy S11 series of smartphones. As a matter of fact, the Samsung Galaxy S11 is already confirmed to run on the recently launched Exynos 990 chipset. The chipset will be coupled with up to 12GB of RAM. Moreover, the device is tipped to feature 8K video recording which makes sense as the Exynos 990 SoC supports the same. To know more about that, you can head to our previous coverage of the same.
Heading back to the specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S11 is tipped to feature a 108MP primary camera which will have support for up to 5X optical zoom. As it turns out, the company has dubbed the camera of the Samsung Galaxy S11 as “Hubble” which is named after the Hubble Space Telescope (which, in fact, was named after the American astronomer Edwin Hubble). Speaking of the Plus variant, the recently leaked renders of the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus suggest that the device will have a Penta-rear camera setup and a single punch-hole arrangement at the front.
The display of the Samsung Galaxy S11 is also rumored to feature either a 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rate. Lastly, the device is said to come in Black, Grey, and Blue color options.
