After having "recycled" the 12 megapixel sensor of the Galaxy S7 for all subsequent models, Samsung should finally integrate a new camera in the next Galaxy S11. The XDA Developers experts found in the Samsung Camera app code (included in the beta 4 of One UI 2.0) various references to the sensor from 108 megapixels and supported features, including 8K video recording.
The Galaxy S11 series will be announced in the first quarter of 2020 (perhaps in February). The Korean manufacturer will probably integrate the Exynos 990 processor (aka Exynos 9830) which supports 4K @ 120fps video and 8K @ 30fps. In the app code there are references to the 8K resolution (7680 × 4320 pixels), to the 108 megapixel sensor and to the aspect ratio 20: 9, three features expected for new smartphones.
The code also contains names and descriptions of the new photo features. Director’s View allows you to lock a subject in the frame and change the one in the foreground. This will be possible through simultaneous recording with several cameras. The Galaxy S11 should have at least three sensors (standard, ultra wide angle and telephoto). Night Hyperlapse is instead the current Hyperlapse in night mode.
There are also features that allow you to create vertical panoramic photos and custom filters. Finally, in the code there is a reference to Single Take Photo which allows you to capture the scene in a series of images and short videos, moving the smartphone for 15 seconds.
In addition to the version with the Exynos 990 processor, the one with the Snapdragon 865 processor will also be distributed. The various models should have 8/12 GB of RAM, 128/256/512/1024 GB of storage and screens between 6.2 and 6.9 inches , all dual edge. For the Galaxy S11e and S11 LTE and 5G versions are expected, while the Galaxy S11 + should arrive on the market only with 5G modem. The operating system will obviously be Android 10 with One Ui 2.1 interface.
