Samsung Galaxy S11 concept PHONEARENA
12/12 Update: Ice Universe is back, revealing that we can expect Samsung to launch the Galaxy S11 on February 18 – one of the earliest Galaxy S launches so far. Ice notes Samsung is more likely to launch a clamshell foldable smartphone on the same time. That is not long to wait for Samsung followers.
14/12 Update: Samsung (via 9to5Google) has just helped to verify what the Galaxy S11 will appear like. The corporate has launched the Galaxy A71 with a centred punch-hole, elongated 20:9 OLED display and big, rectangular camera hump housing a quad camera. For the last two years, the Galaxy A Series debuted designs later refined by the Galaxy S and Note ranges. All of which means the leaked renders (further down) now look to be the real deal.
Picked up by the eagle eyes of SamMobile and popular Samsung insider Ice Universe, Samsung has made the battery sizes of the Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S11+ publicly available through the submission of these parts for certification at government testing agency SafetyKorea. And its reveals Samsung has stepped up its game.
- Galaxy S11: 4,500 mAh (Battery ID – EB-BG985ABY)
- Galaxy S11+: 5,000 mAh (Battery ID – EB-BG988ABY)
These are huge upgrades compared to the Galaxy S10 (3,400 mAh) and Galaxy S10+ (4,100 mAh) which were no slouches themselves when it came to longevity. Apparently, SamMobile notes that the same batteries will power both the 4G and 5G versions of the Galaxy S11 with the Galaxy S11+ expected to only are available in a 5G version. As such, it might be the 4G Galaxy S11 which leads the pack.
As for buyers on a budget, we already know Samsung is going to equip the entry-level Galaxy S11e with a circa 3,800 mAh battery (ID: EB-BG980ABY) compared to Galaxy S10e’s 3,100 mAh capacity so the entire range is leaping a brand new level. This couldn’t be better timed given Apple’s big upgrades and it really shows up Google’s absurd Pixel 4 folly.
For Galaxy followers, Samsung can be cooking up several more headline modifications with leaks revealing the S11’s new groundbreaking ‘Hubble’ camera, next-gen memory and supersized fingerprint sensor.
Moreover, the Galaxy S11 range is anticipated to launch sooner than ever before in February, so there’s not long to wait now. Just beware of the Exynos version.
