Camera performance is a point of focus for smartphone makers, and one thing we have seen lately is a growing number of sensors being implemented into flagship handsets—as many as four rear cameras, in some instances. And of course smartphone makers are pushing higher megapixel counts. As it pertains to the latter, rumor has it Samsung's Galaxy S11 could end up with a 108-megapixel sensor.

We've seen this across the smartphone industry with iterative updates like the Samsung Galaxy S10 family and the Apple iPhone 11/iPhone 11 Pro which launch this Friday. Samsung has, on the other hand, taken some steps into a radical new direction with the Galaxy Fold. According to newly uncovered design patents, Samsung could be looking to expand its use of flexible display technology to its more mainstream product lines. This shift comes to us courtesy of LetsGoDigital, which has produced... Read more...
