Samsung Galaxy S11 will not only come with some usual upgrades over its predecessor but also with some different features that could help in making its individual identity. As time is passing by, we are learning more about the Galaxy S11 and what exclusivities it is coming with. Recently, the One UI 2.0 beta disclosed the Galaxy S11 may have a better face recognition system and now we are learning that the device could come with second-gen 108MP.
Going by what is tipped by one of the reliable tipsters Ice Universe, the Galaxy S11 will have a “new” 108MP sensor. This could mean, it may not be the same 108MP sensor that Xiaomi will use in its Mi Note 10. It could be a new/second-gen 108MP sensor. It is possible that Samsung is using the same 108MP sensor but with better processing followed by some software enhancements. Or a completely new sensor could include some tweaks, minor advancements in terms of photography.
Samsung officially announced the 108MP ISOCELL camera back in August and Xiaomi was first to announce that it will soon release the world’s first 108MP camera smartphone.
The 108MP ISOCELL sensor by Samsung has Tetracell technology which is essentially the pixel binning tech where four pixels are merged to create a single bigger pixel. This means the 108MP sensor will be able to click 27MP shots with high sharpness.
If Samsung is using the same 108MP that it made official two months back then it would be interesting to see what changes it will bring to Galaxy S11 to show some photography chops.
