We should also note that Weibo took down the original post at the time of writing. This likely means that the leaked images could be the real deal. This information comes weeks after speculations surfaced the internet that Galaxy S11 may feature a 100-megapixel primary camera sensor. There is no real-world proof regarding this other than mere speculations. It is also possible that this may be a test module and Samsung may shake things up near the launch. This is likely to depend on how various camera designs work.
Past reports have also likely indicated that the Galaxy S11 series may come with support for 5x optical zoom. This will likely mean that the device will come with a triple camera setup on the back. It is also possible that the company may feature a quad rear-camera and a selfie camera in the front. It is too early to call the hardware final and this may change before launch.
