So like my Xiaomi Mix Alpha, these copycats

Jimbob, 25 Sep 2019They've had time to dissect the p30 pro & see how it worksActually, no. That periscope/prism system is in use since 2015 and debuted first with Asus Zenfone Zoom. Back then they achieved "only" 3x optical zoom, still optical zoom was a new feature. This year we finally got some improvements to this system and if others can do it, then Sammy will try too.

Anonymous, 25 Sep 2019Huawei P40 Pro will beat it with 10x optical zoom.Yeah, that will be great... especially because their phones are basically unsellable without google services (if Huawei doesn't reach an agreement with the US) .

From the looks of it, it really is a module with an anamophic and non-square pixels. If the CMOS is still a regular 4:3 with the 3 under the height restraint, it would be pitifully small.

Don't worry, you'll give in next August.
Just like almost everyone else.

D4UZ, 25 Sep 2019Ahaha so the the price could be as same as the bigger one :)Samsung is already overpriced, so I'll still wait for a sale of some sort. But I'm waiting for a device that will hit all my important checkboxes and S10e is pretty close. That's why I'm hoping S11e will improve.

I much prefer if my next phone has a 120 or 240 hertz screen than 5X optical zoom. Reason why I was interested in both Razer Phones.

[deleted post]you realise that samsung is korean.
Also why not let another company field test your product and after, deliver a more polished solution.

[deleted post]Lol! What are you smoking bro?

Love the Community, 25 Sep 2019Shame that the headphone jacks will not be part of it.No jack no buy. The Asus ROG II is an alternative, but misses a microsd slot. Maybe next year...

Samsung is going crazy, but not crazy enough. In the smartphone camera game Huawei will be hard to catch up

Probably 5MP 1/5" ...

90 degrees layout takes more space.

I'm definitely not intrested in the S11/S11+/S11Note I'm perfectly fine with my Note10Plus,OnePlus7Pro,Note9, and oneplus6t. It's way too early to even care today truthfully.
