  Galaxy S11 will reportedly have a class-leading 108-megapixel camera with 5x optical zoom The triple-camera system of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max has been making waves ever since the new phones launched last week. From the 2x optical zoom to the stunning Night mode, the new iPhone flagship is clearly one of the best camera phones currently available. But if a recent leak is to be believed, the Galaxy S11 will give it a run for its money next spring with a few features the iPhone 11 Pro definitely can't match. CitingCiting industry sources, South Korean publication The Elec reports that the Galaxy S11 will be Samsung’s first phone to feature 5x optical zoom camera modules.

We’ve also seen rumors that this next-generation Touch ID might appear as soon as next year in the iPhone 12 (just like the It ’s obviously far too soon to confirm anything at this point, but we definitely have our fingers crossed that Samsung can pull it off in time for the Galaxy S 11 ’s launch in early 2020.

Samsung built its smartphone empire by copying the iPhone extensively, using Apple’s hardware and software designs to dramatically improve its own lackluster Galaxy S phones. That’s not to say Samsung isn’t an innovator in its own right, but the company ha been less willing to take major risks than its biggest rival, which also happens to be a lucrative business partner when it comes to smartphone parts. On the other hand, Samsung was also the only major smartphone maker that didn’t copy the iPhone X’s notch design a couple of years ago. It didn’t even try to replicate Apple’s 3D face unlock technology, which was a first for smartphones. Few companies actually pulled it off, with the list including just Xiaomi and Huawei in 2018, as well as LG, Huawei, and Google this year. But Samsung could come up with its own version of Face ID soon, although a Galaxy S11 with 3D face unlock support might look a lot better than the iPhone 11 and Pixel 4 phones.

A patent suggests the Samsung Galaxy S11 might help you find out.A spectrometer is a device that can use an infrared beam to analyze the energy waves of an object and potentially determine its chemical composition.

According to MobileFun, the iPhone 11 may introduce an Aura-like color option, which would be similar to the Galaxy Note 10's flashiest finish. Our one gripe with the Galaxy ' s Aura Glow finish is how it proved to be a smudge magnet when we reviewed it . Rumor has it that from Bloomberg that at least

The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max all have the same notch that the iPhone X introduced, although the Face ID components have evolved since 2017. The Pixel 4 will have a more traditional smartphone design, featuring a large top bezel that will incorporate face recognition and Motion Sense components.

A new Samsung design patent that TigerMobiles discovered, meanwhile, might give us a glimpse at what the Galaxy S11 could look like. The phone in the image below features a triple hole-punch camera on the front, which means Samsung would have three distinct sensors in that screen for various functions.

Placing three cameras on the front of the phone seems like overkill, so the simplest explanation here is that the phone would pack 3D face unlock components — here’s what that looks like on the iPhone:

As always with patents of any kind, the intellectual property that companies seek to protect might not always make it into consumer devices, and the same goes for this triple hole-punch camera. We might never see it on a phone, especially if under-display sensors are ready for prime time soon. Also worth noting is that the patent was filed last December.

Nevertheless, the fact that Samsung is considering including three sensors in a display is certainly revealing, suggesting that Samsung hasn’t abandoned the idea of having more sophisticated front-facing camera designs. The Galaxy Note 10 features a single hole-punch camera placed in the middle of the phone. A few versions of the Galaxy S10, meanwhile, feature dual-lens front-facing cameras placed inside oblong holes.

The Galaxy S11 will probably be unveiled next February, just like most of its predecessors, by which time we’ll know everything about the phone, design choices included.

Samsung built its mobile success on copying the iPhone in the early years, and whatever Apple does still influences Samsung’s decisions. But if there’s one iPhone trick that Samsung couldn’t replicate successfully so far, that’s recycling last year’s phone design. Apple used to launch a new iPhone design every couple of years, but that trend stopped with the iPhone 6, a design that Apple kept in place for three more years, for the iPhone 6s, 7, and 8 series. The iPhone X design was then used for all 2018 and 2019 devices, and the company is expected to drop a new iPhone design next year.
