Apple’s iPhone 11 series has received harsh criticism as an “Induction Phone” for its large camera module. However, experts expect that number of latest flagship phones which will adopt induction design will increase starting next year.
There is a high possibility that rear cameras of Galaxy S11 series will have the induction design. Samsung scheduled to unveil the phone in February next year.
According to famous IT Twitter such as OnLeaks and Ice Universe, Galaxy S11 series will have three types: Galaxy S11e, Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S11+. The rear camera will most likely come with three cameras for Galaxy S11e, four for Galaxy S11 and five for Galaxy S11+.
The most noticeable change is the deployment of the rear camera. In the case of the Galaxy Note 10 rear cameras are in vertical arrangement. The new Galaxy S11 series, however, is reminiscent of induction design by placing lenses inside large square-shaped camera modules. The Galaxy S11e and the Galaxy S11 will have cameras and flash in the “L” format. While the top-tier version, the Galaxy S11+, will have cameras and flash in the five dice format.
It seems that Samsung Electronics has chosen the ‘induction design’ because of camera performance. Because it is practically impossible to deploy thin flat panels such as current ones to increase size of image sensors and lenses.
How Apple pull off this ‘induction design’ smartphone on the trend
Apple also placed lenses inside rectangular modules as it was equipped with triple cameras for the first time in iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 processors. As soon as the iPhone 11 series launched, it was hard to avoid harsh criticism of the design. However there are a series of reviews that show satisfaction with camera performance such as nighttime filming.
Earlier, Huawei also put the rear camera of its flagship Mate20 series inside a square module. Since then, it has placed cameras inside circular modules instead of square ones in Mate 30 series that were released in second half of this year. The rear camera of the Mate 30 Pro 5G consists of a 40-megapixel, 40-megapixel, 8-megapixel, and 3-D ToF camera.
