We know that the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus is slated to be released soon—all signs point to a date in February—and the details have been leaking at a steady clip. Now, we’ve gotten a peek at a rendering of the rear camera module courtesy of @OnLeaks on Twitter.
The image is of the final prototype of the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus, so although it’s possible that some changes may have occurred between this prototype and the version that’s about to be released, it’s unlikely. The leaked image shows three lenses on the left side of the rectangular module, with one additional lens and the flash on the right side.
Why four lenses? According to Digital Trends, the three lenses on the left include a 108-megapixel lens that uses “pixel-binning,” a process in which nine pixels are combined into one for better low light performance. One of the lenses is expected to be an ultra-wide-angle lens and another is a periscope 5x telephoto zoom lens. The lens on the right is rumored to be a time-of-flight lens, which simulates background blur, also known as bokeh.
Put it all together and you get one of the most advanced smartphone cameras on the market, with capabilities that were unheard of just a few short years ago. If you’re in the market for a new phone and you’re a digital photography aficionado, you might just want to wait for this release before you make a purchase.
