Samsung is giving final touches to the upcoming Galaxy S11 series of smartphones as the launch is only two to three months away. Of all the three models of the S11 that are S11, S11e, and S11+, the most talked-about smartphone is the Galaxy S11 Plus. Rumor has it that the Galaxy S11+ will be the new camera king, beating iPhone 11 Pro.
The reason behind the camera success of S11+ could be the use of a 1/1.3-inch 108MP Samsung exclusive custom sensor, which will be different from the ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor in terms of quality but will be similar in size, according to the leakster Ice Universe. 108MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX is a camera sensor that you can find on the latest Mi Note 10 and Mi MIX Alpha.
Some people have misunderstood. Samsung does not use ISOCELL Bright HMX, but new CMOS with the same sensor size. Don't think that all 108MP sensors are HMX.

Needless to say, the new custom sensor that the Samsung Galaxy S11+ is going to use will be superior to the existing HMX sensor, which means the image quality will also be better than what ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor produces. It will also be capable of recording super-high-resolution videos.
The camera module in S11+ is also going to be different from the other two models, S11 and S11e. Galaxy S11+ is going to have a “very big” camera module, which will make up for “very strong” camera performance.
