  Samsung Galaxy S11 renders reveal six-part camera array The notable and largely reliable tech leaker OnLeaks has published his first predictive renderings of Samsung's next flagship smartphone. Tech leaker OnLeaks, who made his name by accurately leaking technology releases months ahead of their official launches, on Friday posted not only image renderings of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11 smartphone but also a collection of potential specs.

The Samsung Galaxy S 20 and S 20+ might not feature the company' s new 108-megapixel camera . Samsung is reportedly developing an advanced 108-megapixel camera for the Galaxy S 20 series. But, if new information is to be believed, the sensor may only be present in one of the company’ s flagship

Samsung will unveil its Galaxy S 20 series next month. The phones have been massively touted for their potential camera prowess, with the S 20 Ultra According to popular leakster Ice Universe, while the S 20 and S 20+ will not sport that massive 1/1.3" 108 MP sensor , the phones will still feature new

Samsung's next phones are now looking almost certain to be called the Galaxy S20 line, but between the three likely models, the S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra, there are still a bunch of technical details up in the air. 

Samsung is expected to announce the phones in detail at its Unpacked event on 11 February, and one of the key areas of interest lies in the phones' cameras, long a key battleground in the smartphone platform war.

We've heard indications that the S20 Ultra, the most premium phone in the range, will have a stonking 108 megapixel sensor, with huge hybrid zoom abilities that have led the camera unit to be named after Hubble, the space telescope. 

Samsung might be working on its biggest Android update release ever

  Samsung might be working on its biggest Android update release ever Samsung isn’t known for delivering fast Android updates to its devices, and it usually takes more time for the non-flagship models to get upgraded. The latest Galaxy S and Note models are usually the first devices to get Google’s newest Android flavor, after several months of beta tests. We thought the same thing would happen this year with the Galaxy S10 and Note 10. Samsung kicked off the Android 10 beta program a few weeks ago, earlier than expected, with the final update supposed to hit stores at some point in early 2020.

You might not have to rely on renders or other hard-to-verify reports to know what Samsung ' s next Galaxy S phone will look like -- you may be staring at it. There's also a rumored S 20 Ultra that would include more advanced camera tech (such as Samsung ' s 108-megapixel sensor ).

The cameras on the lower-specced S20 and S20+ have now got some information to go with them, too, though. We're fully expecting a really chunky, rectangular camera bump on the phones' backs, as numerous leaks have indicated, but now a longtime Samsung leaker, Ice Universe, has Tweeted out another key fact. 

It sounds like the camera units for the S20 and S20+ will not match that used by the S20 Ultra, but will still pack a sensor that will likely place them at the top end of the smartphone market. As Ice Universe has pointed out, Samsung's been using a 12MP 1.4μm camera for four years while getting rave reviews for its mobile photography platforms, so the jump to 1.8μm is likely to bring further improvement. 

You can potentially expect better low-light performance as a result of the jump in pixels, alongside reduced noise — both factors that have been key for the new cameras debuted by Google and Apple in their most recent flagship phones. 

Notwithstanding any further information that emerges in the meantime, we've now got to wait a few short weeks until Samsung's Unpacked event to see whether these rumours and others are confirmed. 

Samsung leaks images of its new Galaxy S20 .
There’s a hole-punch selfie camera and a tall back camera bumpThe images confirm a few things that were already rumored about the phone, including the Galaxy S20 name (instead of the S11, which would technically be next by current Galaxy naming standards), a hole-punch selfie camera, and a tall camera bump. The screenshots also revealed a new gray case with LEDs, which is similar to the LED case Samsung released for last year’s Galaxy S10.
