The Galaxy S10 series does not even have three months, while the Galaxy Note 10 range is only in about three months. But as one informant reveals, Samsung is already working hard on the Galaxy S11 lineup next year.
The Galaxy S11 owes its name to a famous Spanish painter
Unfortunately for us, the code name of the Galaxy S11 reveals nothing about the flagship range itself. Nevertheless, the rumors currently circulating, combined with Samsung's previous practices and some official information, allow us to make informed assumptions.
Possible design of the Galaxy S11 and camera upgrades
Samsung did not hide the fact that it was developing "full-screen" smartphones with no notches, punch holes, context-sensitive display mechanisms and slider mechanisms. However, these designs rely heavily on under-display cameras, a technology that is still very much in development.
In terms of cameras, it's unclear at this time whether Samsung plans to add sensors to the back of its next-generation flagship products. If this is the case, the Galaxy S11e will probably get a telephoto lens, while the Galaxy S11 and S11 + could include a new flight time sensor.
The Galaxy S11 could arrive with a much more powerful processor
Going inside, the Galaxy S10 series uses both Samsung and Qualcomm processors. These are based respectively on manufacturing processes of 8 nanometers and 7 nanometers, but with the Galaxy S11, Samsung could switch to a chip of 5 nanometers.
According to Samsung, the first chips manufactured by its 5-nanometer process will arrive in the first half of 2020, just in time for the Galaxy S11 series. In terms of performance, the upgraded process should provide a boost of about 15% over 7-nanometer chips. In addition, we must expect an increased efficiency of 20% and a size reduction of 45%.
If Samsung fails to prepare 5-nanometer chips for the Galaxy S11, the flagship program will default to the 7-nanometer process. This will not provide the huge improvements seen this year after the 10-nanometer run, but it should still lead to a decent improvement in the performance of Samsung's European devices – they are currently using 8-nanometer chips instead of 7 nanometers .
