8 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy S11 & 6 Reasons Not To

Published

on

You might have your eyes on the Samsung Galaxy S10 or new Galaxy Note 10, but some of you might be better off waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S11.

The Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10 5G are Samsung’s Galaxy S flagships. If you’re in the hunt for a new smartphone, these Galaxy S10 models should be at or near the top of your list. All of them are very capable devices.

Samsung’s also released another 2019 flagship. The company’s Galaxy Note 10 series is on shelves and the big-screen flagship comes in three formats: Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 10+, and Galaxy Note 10+ 5G.

If you’re planning to buy a new phone in 2019, make sure look into the Galaxy Note 10. It might be the best option for you and your needs.

If the current crop of devices fails to catch your eye or you’re simply not in a rush to buy a new device, you should think about waiting for next year’s Galaxy S11 flagship.

Samsung Galaxy S11 Rumors

According to leaker Ice Universe, the Galaxy S11 is dubbed “Picasso” behind the scenes. The Galaxy Note 10, Samsung’s new flagship, is called “Da Vinci.”

A report from MySmartPrice states that there will be at least three Galaxy S11 models. Rumored model numbers include the SM-G981, SM-G986, and SM-G988. All three will reportedly include 5G connectivity.

The Galaxy S11 might be slimmer than the Galaxy S10, could feature some massive upgrades to the camera, and will almost certainly feature a new processor.

Ice Universe also claims that the phone’s appearance and configuration “has been basically determined” which means we should start seeing a bunch of credible leaks in the near future.

The Samsung Galaxy S11 release date won’t land until next year and some of you might not have the ability to wait. That said, the Galaxy S11 should be on your radar if you’ll be looking for a device in 2019, if only to rule out waiting for its arrival in the new year.

In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to wait for the Samsung Galaxy S11 and the reasons why you might want to pass and go with another device.

Wait for Improved Cameras

Wait for Improved Cameras

You can expect Samsung to make significant improvements to the Galaxy S camera next year. 

In a tweet, Ice Universe claims that the Galaxy Note 10 will be Samsung's last device with 1/2.55-inch 1.4um CMOS camera sensor.

He claims the Galaxy S11 "will adopt a new large-size large-pixel CMOS" and that it will be a "whole new beginning" for Samsung's cameras. 

Ice Universe is also telling Samsung fans who care about their camera to skip the Galaxy Note 10 because the Galaxy S11 "camera will bring something that has never been seen before."

Samsung's confirmed a new 108MP sensor, the "first mobile image sensor in the industry to go beyond 100 million pixels."

The company says the sensor entered mass production in August which means it should be ready in time for the Galaxy S11. 

Ice Universe claims the Galaxy S11 "has a high probability of using a new 108MP sensor." He doesn't elaborate, but it sure looks like Samsung is planning to go with it.

A report from Korean site The Elec outlines some other potential details. Their sources claim the Galaxy S11 will feature 5x optical zoom, up from 2x. In response to the report, Ice Universe says "the S11 doesn't just have a normal 5x optical zoom."

A recent report from Galaxy Club claims the Galaxy S11's camera is codenamed "Hubble" which likely refers to the Hubble Space Telescope. This appears to hint at 5x optical zoom though nothing is confirmed at this point. 

The company recently filed a trademark for the name "Space Zoom" which might be a name associated with the Galaxy S11's camera. It certainly falls in line with the alleged codename. 

A report from Bloomberg backs up these rumors and all but confirms Samsung's plans to include a 108MP camera sensor and 5X optical zoom. 

The site also claims Samsung will source ToF (Time-of-Flight) camera modules from three suppliers, two in South Korea and one in China. ToF cameras are currently found on the Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy Note 10+.

It also looks like the Galaxy S11's 5x zoom camera will have Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and the ability to shoot video in 8K quality

The Galaxy S10's cameras are great and the Note 10 has similar setup on board. That said, if you want something better, potentially much better, think about waiting.

    One of the best features is actually its camera. I love its camera setup. Some of the specs also released on eplipta website.

    Always have been a Samsung fan, gotta get it for sure. But they dropped earphone jack which is a huge disappointment for me. However, despite this, Samsung will be my first choice for sure.

    Headphone jack is no issue, wireless is better and there is always alternative of usb c if you really need wired for some reason.

    Definitely getting S11 plus when its released and selling my S10 plus.
