You can skip the mediocre cameras of the Note 10 series, at least according to renowned leaker Ice Universe. Samsung apparently has something special planned for the Galaxy S11 series, which should be announced in under six months, with it potentially being something that has yet to grace the smartphone world.
Alex Alderson,

The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ may still be undergoing our rigorous tests, but the Galaxy S11 rumour mill is already well under way. This time it is prolific leaker @UniverseIce stoking things up. Previously, @UniverseIce tweeted that the Galaxy S11 had entered R&D, with many followers hoping for a 120 Hz panel or even the return of the headphone jack, the shunned port of modern flagships.

Now, @UniverseIce has disclosed two that the upcoming flagship will feature two technologies not previously seen on any smartphone. The first is a successor to the M9 material set used in the Note 10, Samsung's latest OLED panel type, which will also feature in the Apple iPhone 11 series. Aptly named the M10, there is little known about the upcoming technology or what advantages it may bring over the M9.

Moreover, @UniverseIce has stressed that Samsung plans to introduce significant camera upgrades as of the Galaxy S11 series, which the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series have been lacking in recent years. The leaker claims that the South Korean company will equip the device with something that "has never been seen before". They also clarified that the surprise will not be a 48 MP sensor, indicating that it is something that Samsung is yet to formally announce. Roll on Q1 2020.
