Samsung Galaxy S11 to feature 9-to-1 Bayer sensor on its 108MP camera

Yordan, 16 December 2019

Samsung is already working hard on the Galaxy S11 lineup, and according to a trustworthy leakster, we are up for a treat next year. The Twitter user UniverseIce revealed the Galaxy S11+ will have a 108 MP sensor with 9-to-1 Bayer technology.

In a separate tweet, the leakster showcased the design of the phone. The Galaxy S series is going to adopt the design of the A and M lineups with a huge rectangle in the upper left corner.

Quick maths about the 108 MP sensor reveals the output will be 12 MP, but with such pixel-binning, we might have the clearest pictures a smartphone has ever produced. The individual combined pixels will have 2.4μm size - by far the largest around.

Looking further into the details of the camera setup, we can see the bottom shooter is actually a periscope-type camera. According to the leakster, the top shooter is an ultrawide-angle camera, the one in the middle is the main one, and the periscope is there keeping them company, playing the role of the telephoto lens. We also expect the flash and the ToF to be there, hidden on the right side.
