According to several rumors from credible tech sources, the Samsung Galaxy S11 will be huge in size, plus the flagship phone will also have a monster camera. The latest rumors give us expectations of the Galaxy S11 capabilities, specs, will it have a headphone jack, price, and release date.

Tech bloggers leaked potential details of the Samsung Galaxy S11 this week. Reliable smartphone leaker Evan Blass claims to have inside information about the upcoming Samsung flagship. Blass claims that the Galaxy S11 will be available in three different models — the S11e with a 6.4-inch screen, the S11 with a 6.7-inch display, and the monstrous Galaxy S11 Plus flaunting a 6.9-inch screen (nice). To compare to the current Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup that comes in 5.8 inches, 6.1 inches, and 6.4 inches. All of the models will have a curved screen.

The Galaxy S11 Plus comes only with 5G connectivity. There are rumors that the Galaxy S11e and Galaxy S11 will have an LTE/4G version and a 5G version of the phone.

It won’t only be the screen that will be giant, the S11’s camera sensor will also be massive. The S11 lineup will reportedly boast a super oversized 108-megapixel camera sensor. That means that the images will be sized 12000 x 9000, equaling 108,000,000 pixels.

The camera will also allegedly feature an impressive crystal clear 50x hybrid zoom called “SpaceZoom.” This puts the Samsung Galaxy S11 in the same class as Huawei’s P30 Pro’s 50X SuperZoom, which was a revolutionary zoom unveiled last Spring.

Other rumors claim that the S11 will have a smaller hole-in-display (HID) pinhole selfie camera built into the screen, a super-smooth 120Hz display for gaming, and a massive 5,000 mAh battery.

The S11 will be run on Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 865. SamMobile provided more details on the Snapdragon 865.

“A total of eight CPU cores will reportedly beat at the heart of the Snapdragon 865 SoC. There are four ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz, along with three Cortex-A77 cores clocked at 2.42GHz, and one high-performance Cortex-A77 core operating at a frequency of 2.84GHz.”

One feature that probably won’t be offered is a headset jack. According to several reports, Samsung will finally give up on the headset jack after being one of the last phone manufacturers to provide the physical jack.

Also supposedly missing will be the Bixby button that many users despised. The new Samsung phone will allegedly have two buttons: a volume button and a power button.

Rumors are circulating that the Samsung Galaxy S11e will come in blue, grey, and pink. While the S11 will be offered in blue, grey, and black.

There are rumors that the Samsung Galaxy S11 has a reveal date of February 24, 2020, which is when Samsung enthusiasts can pre-order the newest flagship phone. The actual launch and release date of the S11 is said to be March 6, 2019.

However, these state-of-the-art handsets will not come cheap, especially for the huge 5G Galaxy S11 Plus. Prices are expected to be around: $999 (128 GB), $1249 (512 GB), $1599 (1 TB).
