Not long ago, we have reported about the Samsung Galaxy S11 leaked renders, and now it looks like that distinctive camera setup on the S11 renders will offer much more than we’ve expected. Samsung is now rumored to be offering a mammoth 100x Hybrid zoom on its flagship smartphone series.
If this is true, Samsung will most probably destroy its rivals in the camera department. Currently, the most capable smartphone cameras right now in the market are The Mi CC9 Pro a.k.a Mi note 10 and The Huawei P30 Pro. Both of these devices have exceptional cameras and can zoom up to 50x.
The main catch here is that both of these devices can zoom up to 50x Digitally, which means the zoom is accomplished by cropping an image down to a centered area with the same aspect ratio as the original. The S11 series is reported to give 100x Hybrid Zoom, which is just a substitute, as it uses an intelligent interpolation algorithm that depends upon the hardware of the device.
Speaking of hardware, The S11 lineup will be launched with the Exynos 990 chipset in Korea and Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 on the global variants, which means that the zoom on this camera will not be a gimmick, it will be accepted, and no one knows even exceptional.
According to an article on XDA-developers, they have found in the Samsung camera app’s code that the upcoming flagships by Samsung will have support for 8K video recording and also taking 108MP resolution pictures.
This could be the truth as the S11 series is reported to have support for video recording in 8K at 30 FPS and 108-megapixel primary sensor along with a 48-megapixel telephoto lens which will be giving that 100x hybrid zoom and also optical zoom up to 10x. Watching these high-resolution images and videos on the Galaxy S11 will be a delight as it will be coming with a 6.9-inch Super AMOLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate.
According to the sources, Samsung is all set to launch its S11 lineup in the first quarter of the year 2020.
