This is the real Galaxy S11+ camera. On the left is the ultra-wide-angle, main camera, and periscope zoom lens. I don’t know the exact distribution on the right. It is expected to include flash and ToF. pic.twitter.com/98exPMSqgf

Earlier this year, Samsung acquired Corephotonics, a company specializing in zoom cameras for smartphones. The acquisition is known to be worth USD150 million. Previously Corephotonics was the company behind the Periscope camera on the Oppo smartphone.

Reportedly the main camera on the Galaxy S11 Plus will have a resolution of 108MP, larger than most other smartphone camera sensors. Ice Universe said that Samsung will use a new sensor that has the same number of pixels, and is more advanced than ISOCELL Bright HMX. Reportedly this camera will not only have 2.4μm in size but will also produce 12MP images by default. It’s a kind of pixel binning technology that combines 9 pixels into 1 and not just 4 pixels, resulting in a 27MP Bright HMX output.
