Galaxy S11 renders show a migrating front camera

It’ll be several months yet before the Galaxy S11 is revealed, but our distance from the announcement isn’t stopping leaks from happening. There have already been a number of rumors and reports concerning the Galaxy S11, but today, a new set of renders is giving us an idea of what the phone will look like. While the changes in aesthetic aren’t dramatic, there are a few that are worth noting.

This set of renders was created by OnLeaks for 91mobiles. The most immediately obvious change involves the hole-punch cutout for the front-facing camera, which has migrated to the center of the device. On the Galaxy S10, that cutout was situated on the right-hand side of the display, so it seems the Galaxy S11 will have a design more akin to the Galaxy Note 10.

The renders also show us that the top and bottom bezels have shrunk, but aside from that, the front of the phone looks more or less the same as the Galaxy S10. Around the back, however, is where things get interesting, as these renders feature a packed camera array that could include as many as five different lenses. 91mobiles points out that three of these should be traditional cameras and a fourth should be a 3D time-of-flight sensor, leaving the capabilities of the fifth lens up in the air.

OnLeaks expects the Galaxy S11 to have the same thickness as the Galaxy S10, with dimensions of 161.9 x 73.7 x 7.8mm. Thickness climbs to 8.9mm when you include the phone’s camera bump. Current thinking is that Samsung will release three different versions of the Galaxy S11: the S11e and standard S11, which may have 5G variants, and the S11+, which could come with 5G standard.

Previous leaks and rumors have suggested that the Galaxy S11 will feature a 108MP Samsung-made lens as its main shooter, which is something we’ve already seen on other devices. The new phones could be revealed as early as February, so it may not be much longer before we have official confirmation from Samsung. Stay tuned.
