Rumor: Galaxy S11e to have a curved display and optional 5G

The Galaxy S11 rumor mill keeps spinning as we approach the holiday shopping season, and a few new bits and pieces of information pertaining to the upcoming series emerged over the weekend via industry leaker @evleaks. He claims that the Galaxy S11 series will likely comprise three models, with the smaller Galaxy S11e switching from a flat to a curved display. Samsung opted for a flat panel for the Galaxy S10e.

The smaller Galaxy S11 variant will reportedly have a 6.2 or 6.4-inch screen, while the other two models will boast 6.7 and 6.9-inch panels. It’s worth reminding that the Galaxy S11 series could also feature a slightly taller aspect ratio. This could make the Galaxy S11+ easier to hold one-handed than the Galaxy Note 10+ despite it presumably having a 0.1-inch-larger display.

5G to become more prevalent with the Galaxy S11

Adding to the screen shapes and sizes, the source mentions that the largest Galaxy S11 model, which will presumably be called the Galaxy S11+, will be available with 5G as standard. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S11e and Galaxy S11 will be released in both LTE and 5G flavors.

In theory, this means that a fourth 5G-only flagship variant like the Galaxy S10 5G should no longer be necessary next year. Finally, the Galaxy S11 lineup will be unveiled by Samsung in mid-to-late February, according to the same source. It doesn’t tell us anything surprising as this coincides with the Galaxy S10 launch timeframe – the Galaxy S11 announcement should take place sometime in the third week of February, possibly February 18 .

Other recent reports hint at the possibility of the series adopting the 108-megapixel ISOCELL Bright HMX camera sensor, and that the smaller Galaxy S11e will have a fairly generous battery with a capacity higher than the unit beating at the heart of the Galaxy Note 10. If these details do become reality then the Galaxy S11e should look and feel more like a compact flagship rather than a cheaper flagship.

I know the technology needs to be done step by step, but still Huawei will outdo you … If you don’t take a big step in changing something, it doesn’t work anymore, the opinion of the users will change. Come with the new recording technology at night, hidden camera, transparent screen, transparent back, put the 5g technology no longer come with 4g phones. With 6d screens, 3D shooting with cameras in the left-right corners for real-time viewing in real-time with cartoon effects. I learn .. If you want to stay on the market .. I worked at a phone manufacturer,… Read more »

The rumours of the phones getting longer is not great. They are already not pocket friendly. Was hopping that the normal model would be similar size to the s10 if not smaller or shorter

Good to see more choices for customers. Very impressed with how they’re getting big screens onto phones that feel small in the hand.

Guess Samsung wants to differentiate the S11e and S11 lite by having the S11 lite have a flat display.

“The smaller Galaxy S11 variant will reportedly have a 6.2 or 6.4-inch screen”

So it’ll be enormous.
They’re basically ruining everything the S10e has going for it. Then again the sh*t Note 10 should be told us Samsung has clearly lost its way.
Oh well.
Huawei thanks them. ’cause if I need to exchange the S10e and the options are only lunch tables with dumb pointless curved screens, then I’d rather go with the brand with the best cameras and that’s not Samsung.

The Note10 is the best phone of 2019 by long shot. Even consumer bodies have said nothing tops it this year. What happened to you with all the stupid hate? Did Samsung sleep with your ugly sister and then refuse to marry her? 😂

Currently using an s10 and a note 10 as my daily drivers and I personally miss my s10e as that size was perfect for a compact phone

Zurzeit alles noch Bereich der Spekulation. Nur, wenn sich das “Gerücht” hinsichtlich des “neuen” Display’s für das “S11e” bewahrheiten sollte, würde ich das persönlich mehr als schade empfinden. Meine Mutter hatte sich gerade WEGEN der Größe und der “Rückkehr” zum Flachglas-Display FÜR das S10e (=”Mini”) entschieden, eben weil sie den Trend hin zu den gebogenen Display’s nicht mochte/ mag. Und ich muss sagen, dass ich es auch nicht als unangenehm empfinde. Wenn es das “Plus” auch in einer solchen Variante gegeben hätte, hätte ich mich bestimmt auch dafür entschieden. Leider scheint diese kurze Episode bald wieder “Geschichte” zu sein. Na… Read more »

I’d be very surprised and disappointed with Samsung if they released LTE/Non 5G ready flagships going forward. They made it a massive point that they’re paving the way for the future, 5G is the future. And they’re all about the future!.
To release an LTE version, especially in 5G countries, is counter to their supposed philosophy.

5g isn’t ready for the mass yet !!

That’s true. Except for Korea everyone else is far behind. We will have changed phones twice before 5g will actually be practical and in many markets it will be 4 or 5 years.

Samsung is being practical by releasing non 5g versions given that it will be a few years before it’s actually available and usable in most markets. Even here in Germany they say it will be 3 or 4 years before it will be widespread and that practical problems like physical barriers blocking 5g signals will still be a major issue. I saw a video where a van parking in front of a 5g transmitter blocked it. That will be a nightmare in cities everywhere. People may end up being very disappointed in 5g for quite a long time before it’s… Read more »
