Update | First Samsung Galaxy S11+ renders present a phenomenal flagship with a penta-lens camera and laser-focusing module
Update November 27: Fellow tipster Ice universe, who is known for leaking details about Samsung's smartphones, has recently made a comment on his Twitter account in regard to these new CAD drawing-based S11+ renders. He said: "I can definitely say that this Galaxy S11+ rendering is wrong, or that the key parts are wrong, the real design is more beautiful than this. I don't blame Onleaks, maybe the CAD drawing he got is wrong, thank him for his efforts and efforts. Let's keep waiting." So which renowned leaker is correct about the S11+ - @UniverseIce or @OnLeaks?
Notebookcheck just reported on how leaks concerning the Samsung Galaxy S11+ were surprisingly thin on the ground at the moment, but now we have a huge leak bursting forth that should satisfy Samsung fans for a while. Unfortunately, it seems the renders from CashKaro and @OnLeaks would hardly class the device as “Samsung’s real nuclear weapon” at first glance, but the Galaxy S11+ looks great nonetheless.
Those hoping for an under-display camera for the selfie shooter will be disappointed though, as the renders make it clear that the Samsung Galaxy S11+ is likely to feature a centrally positioned punch-hole solution. It’s believed the 6.9-inch smartphone will measure about 166.9 x 76 x 8.8 mm, with CashKaro pointing out that the noticeable camera bump adds a little more to the depth (add 1.4 mm for a total of 10.2 mm).
It has been argued that the "nuclear" power of the Galaxy S11+ could be hidden in the camera setup, which seems like a reasonable statement to make. The bulky bump consists of five lenses and two smaller sensors, with one of these being revealed as a laser-focusing module. With Xiaomi already on the 108 MP bandwagon, it’s unlikely Samsung would want to get left behind. The penta-lens camera system of the Galaxy S11+ could be astounding if all the rumors about it end up being true.
The display curvature of the Galaxy S11+ in the renders is subtler than expected, especially considering another leaker’s claim that 2020 would be the year of the quad-curve flagship smartphone. Looking from the front, it’s possible to see physical hardware buttons for the power and volume on the right edge, and there is a USB Type-C port on the bottom. It’s certainly not a revolutionary design over the predecessor in terms of looks – but it is what’s hidden on the inside that will really matter.
