The rumour mill is on overdrive churning out specifications and features of the Galaxy S11 series ahead of its rumoured launch in February. There have been multiple reports on the web that claim to have revealed many specifications of the Galaxy S11 series. Adding to the flood of leaks, a couple of new reports have revealed more specifications of the Galaxy S11+ and the Galaxy S11e.Tipster Ice Universe has claimed that Samsung Galaxy S11+ would feature a custom 108MP sensor. Samsung’s 108MP Bright HMX sensor is already in use in Xiaomi’S Mi Note 10 series. However, Samsung would use a custom sensor on the Galaxy S11+ that would be superior in quality. This would also result in a higher cost, as per the tipster, in spite of the same sensor size of 1/1.3-inch. The leakster hasn’t listed out the exact difference between the two sensors.
The Galaxy S11+ uses a 1 / 1.3-inch 108MP Samsung exclusive custom sensor, which is superior in quality to ISOCELL Bright HMX and has a high cost.
