First Galaxy S11e render leak reveals curved display and triple camera

The first unofficial CAD renders of the Galaxy S11e have been leaked online today. They follow the ones for the Galaxy S11 which were leaked yesterday. As expected, there will be more similarities between the design of the cheapest Galaxy S11 variant and the entire lineup compared to what we saw with the Galaxy S10e.

It’s pertinent to mention here that these are unofficial renders. What you end up getting next year may not look exactly like what you see right now. However, this does provide a general idea of which direction the design is headed in.

Galaxy S11e renders reveal a curved display

Samsung opted for a flat display panel on the Galaxy S10e but that appears to have been a one-off. Rumors have already suggested that the Galaxy S11e will get a dual-edge curved display like the entire Galaxy S11 lineup. That’s exactly what we see in these renders. Speaking of the display, the punch hole for the front camera will now be in the center. That’s something we saw on the Galaxy S11 renders as well.

As far as the display size is concerned, there isn’t a confirmed figure on that just yet. It could be between 6.2 and 6.3-inches if the rumors are accurate. The design changes that we highlighted in the Galaxy S11 can be seen here as well. All of the hardware buttons are now on the right side of the frame. The headphone jack is nowhere to be found.

There’s also the elephant in the room. The new L-shaped camera layout at the back which is positioned vertically. We know many fans are not excited to see Samsung give up its signature design but they’re out of luck. There’s little reason to believe now that this is something that can be reversed this late in the development cycle. It’s going to house a triple camera system which may include a 108-megapixel primary camera.

The Galaxy S11e will use the same Exynos 990/Snapdragon 865 package as the other handsets in the lineup. It’s even expected to get a 5G option. The battery size could be surprisingly large at around 3,900mAh battery.

The only reason why I boutgh S10e and not normal s10 was the flat screen. S11e won’t be for me at all.
Luckily other brands and now catching up with Samsung so next time I’ll be getting a new phone I’ll have a lot more options to choose from.

How is this giving up their signature design? My Note 9 has a completely different camera set-up than the Note 10. And my roommates’ A9 2018 has a very similar set-up like this S11 render.

What’s wrong with the present(S10/Note10) camera placement? What the heck designers thinking and doing?

Booo! With this horrid design on flagships, Samsung needs to get a new designer team

I actually don’t think the rectangle looks as bad as a square. My big problem with the iPhone square is that the actual lenses have those huge trim circles, making the whole thing look like a stove top. My problem with the more subtle Pixel square is that it’s too freaking big for what it houses. Samsung looks to be making good use of the real estate though.

For me design is not so important, but 100mpx camera with optical zoom can be a important argument!

People crying about the camera layout seem to only do it because they dislike “change”.
I actually prefer the camera on the top since it prevents accidental smudges with your fingers

Yes, that’s the issue at least make it a little bit different, round or oval perhaps? 🤔. It would look equally awful but at least different. Maybe make the phone thicker and leave the lenses clean and flat without that rectangular border like the Honor 8X. That would allow for an even bigger battery and no excuses to leave the headphone jack out.

But it doesn’t look like an iPhone at all. iPhone is Matte and doesn’t have a solid black cut out… Like another had said, the iPhone cameras look more like a stove. If anything, this is a Pixel 4 design choice. And at the end of the day, almost all manufacturers have a phone with their camera at the top left of their devices, it’s not “copying”. It’s a legit design choice.
