Our first look at the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus (Spoiler: Camera is cray cray)
We’ve already seen leaked renders for the Samsung Galaxy S11 and S11e, and today we’re getting our first look at the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus. As with the other two smartphones, these leaks come courtesy of reliable source @OnLeaks (via Cash Karo) so they are very likely legitimate.
However, as with every set of leaked renders, be sure to take these with a grain of salt. It’s very possible these designs are not completely accurate, especially when you consider the devices won’t launch for a few months.
The Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus doesn’t appear to be all that different from its smaller sibling, the Galaxy S11. On the front, you have a nearly bezel-less display with curved edges, albeit curves that are less dramatic than those on the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. You also have a centered hole-punch camera cutout at the top, similar to the Galaxy Note 10.
Unlike last year, it doesn’t appear that the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus will have a dual front-facing camera system. Instead, it’s very likely the front-facing camera on both the S11 and the S11 Plus will be the same.
That’s the front, but the rear of the device is where things get, um, interesting. See for yourself below:
The rear camera module on the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus is in the same shape as the one we saw on the vanilla S11, but the lenses aren’t arranged in the same way. The S11 and the S11e feature the rectangular camera module and the primary lenses stacked vertically on the left. With the Galaxy S11 Plus, though, the lenses are scattered about in a seemingly random fashion.
It’s possible that Samsung did this intentionally for some reason, although we won’t know why until we get closer to the launch of the device. It’s also possible these renders are inaccurate, although that would be strange considering what the other S11 renders look like.
Outside of the camera system, the other notable aspect of the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus — or non-aspect, rather — is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. This isn’t too surprising as the port didn’t appear on the S11 renders, either, and it’s also missing from the Galaxy Note 10. Pour one out for the headphone jack, homies.
