The Samsung Galaxy M31 may gain a macro camera, just like the A51

Rumor has it that Samsung is also working on the Galaxy M11, M21 and M41. The Galaxy M41 will go up to a 64MP sensor for its main camera and an Exynos 9630 chipset while the Galaxy M21 should offer a 24MP main camera and Exynos 9609 or 9610 chipset.
