- Galaxy S11 is tipped to employ the ISOCELL HMX sensor
Samsung’s next Galaxy S-series flagship, tentatively called the Galaxy S11, is still quite far away from seeing the light of the day. But if a new report from Samsung’s home market is to be believed, the Galaxy S11 will dramatically up the camera game by packing a 108-megapixel camera as the main snapper that will most likely employ the company’s own ISOCELL HMX sensor. Moreover, the phone is tipped to employ a periscope-style camera module that would bring 5x optical zoom feature to the table. The latter is something we have already come across on Huawei’s P30 Pro flagship, which won acclaim for its imaging capabilities. It may be that the 108-megapixel sensor will be employed on the Samsung Galaxy S11, a report claims.
As per a report from Korea-based The Elec, Samsung will fit the Galaxy S11 with a 5X optical zoom camera module. The optical zoom module will be supplied by the Korean giant’s sister firm, Samsung Electro-Mechanics. The first batch of optical zoom camera modules has already made to Oppo’s Reno smartphone series, and will now be employed for the first time in the company’s own smartphones, starting with the Samsung Galaxy S11.
To recall, Samsung commenced mass production of its 5x optical zoom camera module back in May this year, alongside a less powerful 2x optical zoom camera module. The entire camera module is only 5mm thick and employs a periscope mechanism backed by OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) to capture detailed long-range shots without any blurring or distortion caused by hand movements. And thanks to the small profile of Samsung’s 5x optical zoom camera module, it can be fitted in the phone’s body without creating a huge camera bump.
