New Samsung Galaxy S11 leak touts huge performance improvements over the S10
A few days ago, it was revealed that Samsung had finalized most of the design and hardware elements of the upcoming Galaxy S11 phones, and we'd stepped into prime leak season. Well, there's new information on the Galaxy 11.
Samsung recently released the One UI 2.0 beta to the Galaxy S10 phones. That's the same software that will be seen on the Galaxy S11, so there was always going to be references to the upcoming flagships in the code. There are lines in the code that make specific mention of the Exynos 9830, SDM8250,
The Galaxy S10 and Note 10 were powered by the Exynos 9820 and Exynos 9825 respectively, and the next SoC in that series is expected to be the Exynos 9830. There were reports that the newly released Exynos 990 could be Samsung's next-gen flagship SoC but that's looking increasingly unlikely.
The Snapdragon 855 had the internal designation of "SDM8150", so the SDM8250 listed here can be assumed to be the upcoming Snapdragon 865.
According to GSMArena, the Galaxy S11 will also feature UFS 3.0 storage and LPDDR5 RAM. The S10 featured UFS 2.1 storage and LPDDR4X RAM, and which offer about half the data rates of the newer technologies. That puts the S11 well on its way to being a lot faster than the S10.
Another (exclusive) S11 leak(?). In the Face Service app, Samsung has started to work on the UX_Picasso. Essentially, the UX for the S11. In reality, it doesn't say much about anything besides Samsung is actively working on facial recognition. pic.twitter.com/FNFrK158iu— Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) October 28, 2019
The Exynos 9830 exists. In the latest One UI 2.0 beta for the S10, Samsung added support for the Exynos 9830 along with the Snapdragon 865. These will, of course, be used in the S11. pic.twitter.com/v2Bio1Hggf— Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) October 27, 2019
