Samsung’s next big smartphone coming in 2021 is rumoured to have a camera with over 100 megapixels. Samsung is expected to invest heavily in the camera optics department in the coming years if they want to compete successfully with more cost-effective Chinese brands. Their latest cooperation with Xiaomi marks a new segment where Samsung plans to provide more camera modules to Chinese manufacturers vs. just designing and producing smartphones. According to the latest rumours, Samsung 108 megapixel primary camera is expected to be better than the 108MP Samsung ISOCELL HMX sensor found in Xiaomi’s Mi Note 10 and Mi MIX Alpha.
The handsets are also expected to have 5x optical zoom, Deep Fusion-like technology, and camera features such as Single Take Photo, Director’s View, Night Hyperlapse, Vertical Panoramas, an impressive 8K video recording, and other features. The Samsung Galaxy S11 series is also expected to have three screen sizes. The affordable low-cost Galaxy S11e is said to have a 6.3-inch/6.4-inch screen, while the Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S11 Pro could possibly have a 6.7-inch and 6.9-inch displays. The panels will most likely be Dynamic AMOLED, sport punch-hole for selfie cameras, offer HDR10+ support, have up to QHD+ resolution, and feature an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner.
In addition, all three models are expected to come with both 4G and 5G connectivity, powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC/ Exynos 990 SoC running under Android 10-based One UI 2.0 custom skin to take care of the software side of things.

The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max come with impressive ultra-wide angle and telephoto lenses, though those are the least of the enhancements Apple has made to its newest flagships. The real innovation has been done in apple’s software. Apple’s Night Mode sets a new level for low-light photography within the industry, implementing a new Smart HDR technology that utilizes a breakthrough machine learning technique called semantic rendering to selectively over-or underexpose specific areas of the scene differently. For example, highlights in a subject’s face might be left mostly intact, while highlights in the background are reduced more aggressively.
On the video front, all three of the iPhone 11 Pro’s rear cameras are capable of recording at 4K resolution and 60 frames-per-second, and even the front-facing shooter captures slow-motion clips for dynamic and dramatic “selfies.” Both the regular 5.8-inch model and the 6.5-inch Max variant feature the same cameras, while the cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone 11 ditches the telephoto lens, but can still capture the same quality photos otherwise.
HUAWEI P40 PRO
Huawei P40 Pro is not only rumoured to be equipped with a 5500 mAh battery and uses graphene technology, but also the so-called 65w super fast charge head spy photos are exposed on the network. According to sources, the charging head is not used on mobile phones, but Huawei Mate Xs may be used in the future. As for the battery capacity of the Huawei P40 series, it is indeed possible to reach 5500 mAh, and although there is no exact information on whether to use graphene battery technology, there is no doubt that the fast charge technology will be upgraded again in the future.
Huawei P40 Pro
Will push 65w new charging head
Perhaps because of the high degree of concern, the rumours of Huawei P40 series on the Internet are also hot. A few days ago, a digital blogger exposed the so-called new charging head of the Huawei P40 series, and showed a maximum output power of 65w, and claimed to be able to charge to 71% of the power in 10 minutes. Huawei does have a new 65w super-fast charging head coming soon, but it is not specifically equipped for mobile phones. It is a separately packaged charger with one meter. Dual Type-C data cables and said that Huawei Mate Xs may be used next March.
In other words, Huawei will launch an upgraded version of the Huawei Mate X charging head with the original model number HW-200200CP1.

Equipped with 5500 mAh battery
Regarding the previous reports that Huawei P40 Pro will be equipped with a 5500 mAh battery and use graphene technology, there are suspected insiders who said that it may indeed be a 5500 mAh battery, but the statement of graphene technology has not been confirmed. However, considering that the increase in battery capacity will inevitably make the battery volume larger, in order to solve this problem, Samsung and Apple will change the battery circuit protection module packaging method in the next flagship to ensure that the battery volume remains the same. If possible, increase battery capacity.
As for Huawei, no similar information has been disclosed in the industry chain for the time being, but considering that the biggest feature of graphene batteries is fast charging speed and higher security, and Huawei has one minute to win the second prize of the National Natural Science Award. The charging technology patent that is full of 80% of the power, so if the Huawei P40 Pro can charge to 71% in only 10 minutes as rumoured, then it is still possible to use graphene battery technology.
Still designed for waterfall screens
As for the appearance design of the Huawei P40 Pro that everyone cares about, there is news from the film manufacturer that it is still a waterfall screen design, and the arc is not as large as the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, but there is no way to confirm the hole. Earlier, claims from the supply chain revealed that Huawei P40 Pro will be equipped with three front-facing cameras, which may mean the opportunity to add a ToF camera and bring 3D face recognition.
The waterfall screen of the Huawei P40 Pro also supports 2K resolution and has a 90Hz refresh rate for the first time. At the same time, in terms of the camera, it is rumoured that the main camera will use a 1 / 1.33-inch outsole, and the upgraded 52MP ultra-wide lens will use 1 / 1.5 inch CIS and will retain a 40MP movie lens and periscope telephoto And ToF cameras, which are rumoured to support 10x optical zoom, are expected to launch in conjunction with Huawei P40 in March 2020.
