Samsung usually launches its flagship Galaxy S-Series handsets every year in February-March. While we still have at least five months before the next generation Galaxy S series phones from the Galaxy S11 series are announced, rumor mills have already started churning out bits of information about the possible features these new handsets might come with. In the latest such report, a Samsung-centric Dutch tech blog, Galaxy Club has hinted at the possibility of the Galaxy A11 getting a taller 20:9 display. This will make the phone slightly taller than the existing Galaxy S10 and S10+ models that get a 19:9 Super AMOLED panel.
Galaxy Club based its findings from a leaked HTML 5 browser benchmark test in which a device with the model name SM-G416U was found to have a reference to a resolution in the 20:9 aspect ratio (384 x 854 pixels). Also, the model number SM-G416U is used as a placeholder by Samsung to test the S-Series devices. Diving deeper into the benchmark results reveal that this new phone runs Android 10.
This is not the first Galaxy S 11 related leak to have been reported recently. Just a few days ago, there were reports about Samsung reportedly planning to include a 5X periscope telephoto camera on the Galaxy S11. That is pretty much everything that we know about the Galaxy S11 series as of now. We are pretty sure, however, this is only the first of the many leaks that will follow soon.
It remains to be seen if the Galaxy S11 and the S11+ would be just another incremental update to the Galaxy S Series. There is hope that this time around, Samsung refreshes the overall design language of the phone. Hardware-wise, there should be significant upgrades with regards to the chipset and the cameras. Let’s see how things pan out in the next few months.
