The Samsung Galaxy S10 is getting cheaper and the Galaxy Note 10 is about to hit shelves. These are great options, but some of you might want to hold onto your current phone and wait for the Galaxy Note 11.
If you’re thinking about upgrading your phone, you might have your eyes on Samsung’s Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, or Galaxy S10 5G. They are four of the best devices on the market and for many people, worth the investment.
The Galaxy S10 series has since been joined by three new versions of the Galaxy Note. The company’s released the standard Galaxy Note 10, the larger Galaxy Note 10+, and a 5G-powered Galaxy Note 10+. They’re certainly worth investigating if you’re on the hunt for something new.
There are also some interesting devices on tap for 2020. The current list includes the Samsung Galaxy S11 and Apple’s 2020 iPhones. There’s also a good chance Samsung releases an updated version of the Galaxy Note 11.
Galaxy Note 11 Rumors
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 isn’t on shelves yet so it should as no surprise to learn that we know very little about the company’s plans for the Note series in 2020. If there is a Note series.
If Samsung decides to go with a two-pronged launch in 2020 (Galaxy S, Galaxy Note), you can expect the company to make upgrades to the foundation left behind by the Note 10. You can also expect the Galaxy S11 and Galaxy Note 11 to share some things in common.
We haven’t heard much about the Galaxy Note 11, but we have heard quite a bit about the Galaxy S11, the company’s Galaxy S10 successor that’s expected to launch in the first half of next year. Armed with these rumors, we can start to make some assumptions about the Galaxy Note 11.
The Galaxy Note 11 release date is probably a year out and many of you won’t want to delay an upgrade for 12 months. That said, the Galaxy Note 11 should be on your radar if you’re planning to upgrade in late 2019 or sometime in 2020 even if it’s just to rule out waiting for its launch.
In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to wait for the Note 11 and the best reasons to go with another device today, tomorrow, or sometime in the months ahead.
Wait for Better Cameras
Samsung always makes year-to-year improvements to the cameras on board the Galaxy S series and Galaxy Note series and we expect some upgrades in 2020. In fact, we could see some major changes on the Note 11.
We haven’t seen any specific Galaxy Note 11 camera rumors yet, but the company has confirmed a new 64-megapixel camera and there’s a chance it puts the high-resolution image sensor inside the next Galaxy S.
Samsung says the new ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 “are currently sampling and are expected to be in mass production in the second half of this year” which means they’ll be ready in time for the Galaxy S11 and Galaxy Note 11, should Samsung choose to release it.
So what would this change mean for the average consumer? The new sensor uses Tetracell technology to produce bright 16MP photos in low-light environments and extremely detailed 64MP photos in well-lit environments.
Nothing is confirmed, but well known leaker Ice Universe says Samsung’s Galaxy S11 “will adopt a new large-size large-pixel CMOS” and that it will be a “whole new beginning” for Samsung’s cameras.
If this happens, we’d expect the company to overhaul the Galaxy Note’s camera setup as well.
The cameras on board the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 are good enough for a lot of people, but if you aren’t impressed and want something better, hang around for Samsung’s 2020 flagships.
