A few weeks back we reported on some alleged upgrades to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11+.
Now it seems we know a little bit more.
The original leaks reported that the phone would have a super high-res 108MP sensor, as well as a 5x optical zoom lens and a 3D time-of-flight (ToF) camera. It also revealed an absolutely enormous rectangle array that strikes fear into our hearts even more than the Pixel 4 did.
There have also been rumours that there could be as many as five cameras at the rear of the S11+.
Renowned leaker Ice Universe has now taken to Twitter to reveal a photo of the phone, as well as the inclusion of a periscope lens.
Oppo was the first phone manufacturer in the world to unleash a periscope style lenses after unveiling the tech at Mobile World Congress back in 2017. Since then it has gone into several of its phones.
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

The image only shows half the camera array, so there is certainly room for 5x optical zoom and ToF lenses.
An earlier tweet also revealed that the 108MP main camera on the S11+ would combine nine pixels into one, resulting in a 2.4 micron/12MP image size.

Other S11+ rumours that have been circulating include a 5,000mAH battery, 144Hz display and 5G support. We won't know anything for sure until Unpacked or possibly Mobile World Congress in early 2020. But if the last few years are anything to go by, we can probably expect a tonne more leaks and rumours before then.
Almost a year ago, Samsung acquired mobile camera developer Corephotonics, and now, if reports are true, Samsung might finally be ready to add some of the company’s fancy new photography tech on the upcoming Galaxy S11.
