The Samsung Galaxy S11 trio to bring laser autofocus

26 November 2019
Previously, Samsung relied on the Dual Pixel AF feature of the sensor. Why change that now?

People just go off on a tangent after reading screen sizes without taking into account the actual footprint of the phone.

        I'll rather have a phone which has all the tools and features and lasts me long enough(build quality). Official OS updates are extremely overrated. It only gives you bragging RIGHTS, nothing more and creates a good image for the OEM.

            I didn't say android users were missing out on features, I just mentioned the life cycle.

            It means the device is usable for a longer period, if you want to be a little greener and not buy a new device every year or 2, but it all depends on what is important to you, features or life cycle of devices

              Even 5 year old Android have features that don't exist on current iOS firmware.

              iOS gets features which already exist on Android.
              Even pixel phones are simply incorporating features ported from Miui, Samsung (split screen multitasking), oxygen OS, lineage OS, other Android skins in their latest updates. So Android users are really missing out on nothing.

                Shanti Dope, 26 Nov 2019When they could've saved some pixels and just had 80MP over... moreWhat do you think about my last post?

                (The one saying that it might be 9into1 formula, to make 12 MP images, since 12x9=108MP)

                  I have a strong feeling that S11 will focus on "9 pixels into 1" formula...
                  which means the 108MP camera will churn out... yes, 12 Megapixel Photos, which are pixel perfect.
                  12x9 = 108.

                  Anyone else feels the same way? Because for most clicks, 12 MP is still enough by today's standards..

                    I'mPhone, 26 Nov 2019Clearly Shamsung wasn't very successful with the S10 and No... moreDude what are you even on S10 and Note10 series both outsold their previous phones.

                    Sales went down? From 72 Mil units all the way down to 75 Mil units for Q2 and even below the 78 Mil for Q3? That is a pretty darn decline in their sales(!)

                    Go back to your circus, because a clown like you is only funny in a circus.

                      F stops as fast as 1.4-2.8 etc are fast or wide, and down to f 12- 14 or so is narrow
                      I would love a phone with real variable aperture like Samsung but on a wider scale

If you don't like a product there's no need to be aggressive, iPhone are still incredibly popular and deservedly so, they offer great update life cycles...I'm currently an Android user but I do wish Android would follow suit with how long they support devices , even pixel phones aren't supported as long as iPhones

                          The 108 Mp sensor is huge like the Mi Note 10 which effectively allows more clarity in images and light. Plus Samsung provides lowest aperture out there.

                                  Very ugly.

                                    When they could've saved some pixels and just had 80MP overall resolution for the same sensor size (effectively a 20MP main, which is still high resolution), they chose to completely boggle down the low light performance for the sake of "slightly" better sharpness.
                                    Their 1.4um pixel sensors aren't doing as well as similar sensors from their competitors, imagine how worse could their 0.8um pixel sensor get......
