The Galaxy S11 5G leaks with 25W charging and Video Spin camera mode

The Galaxy S11 5G leaks with 25W charging and Video Spin camera mode
Samsung's Galaxy S11 is being fleshed out more every day now, but for the first time we are getting a tangible evidence that, first, it exists, and, second, it will be available in a 5G form, too.

The proof comes courtesy of the Chinese certification authorities, the equivalent of the FCC in the US, where a unit made in Vietnam, where most S-series flagships for the US market are assembled, made a database cameo yesterday.

The phone carries the internal model number SM-G9860, and, given that the S10 series is denoted with SM-G97xx, with the S10+ 5G in particular being SM-G977x, it's not hard to deduce that this G9860 that leaked would be the 5G model of the middle Galaxy S11 child.

It is also coupled with Samsung's first USB-C charger, the EP-TA800 that comes bundled with the Galaxy S10+ 5G and pumps its large 4500mAh battery full of electrons in no time. 

That's 25W of charging power, and, if you think that Samsung's third party 45W charger will top off the same battery much faster, tests beg to differ, as the largest detected difference we detected to be around the 15 minute mark, not really worth the trouble.


In addition, Samsung's supposedly amazing Galaxy S11 camera kit keeps adding features to the already impressive rumored hardware via trademarks. It is expected that the S11 will sport a quad-camera setup with a 108MP main sensor and at least 5x zoom abilities, and those will be put to good use, apparently. 

The folks from LetsGoDigital just discovered that Samsung has trademarked the new Single Take and Video Spin camera features, adding to the Space Zoom one not long ago. The moral of the story? With great camera and a much better battery life, the S11 series is shaping up to be a hit whenever it lands in the spring.

Cannot believe 25W charging is still a thing when Huawei and OnePlus are shipping devices with far more.

One plus 8/pro are surely coming with 50W or 65W considering their sister brands oppo/realme have already launched some of their smartphones with these beast chargers in Asia.

50w or 65w chargers damage your phone’s battery during charging. Your battery will start to lose capacity soon after using such chargers. 18w to 25w is the best compromise if you want to maintain battery capacity.

Lol, I heard this excuse when Huawei brought 40W and guess what? Most of us with Mate 20 Pro and P30 Pro still have great battery life.

Nah. He just another delusion Samsung supporter. If they released 50W charging for S11, they will say it's a revolutionary new improvement. Trust me.

I can’t understand how smartphone forums always get so nitpicky. “Can’t believe something has a notch, punch-hole, pop-up cam, curved display, LCD, 60hz and I can’t believe something doesn’t have 120hz, 6500 mah, 6.5”, 4”, 5”... It never ends, don’t know why all these people need to explain why their choice of smartphones is the superior, when that is as subjective as it gets. Stop finding gratification in doing that and the need to find something to argue about. These arguments and needs to tell the world why you chose your smartphone never happens out in the real world. Because nobody would f****** care. I’ve fallen for these nonsensical disputes over and over and nobody cares what I prefer, besides some internet ghost-buddy that pushes that thumb because he happens to use the same device. It’s stupid, what do we gain from it? Don’t you all just know if Apple f*** up, the users complain the loudest because they actually own the devices, or if a galaxy Note explodes and need a recall the would be users are the most disappointed at Samsung, or if a Huawei mate don’t get google play the buyers are the saddest. But when someone who would never buy this or that brand throw s*** first. These emotions shift focus to a dispute, Or defense rather then anything else. Friday night rant :) Good night and cheers

I, for one, enjoyed this rant, and agree. Well done!

its a fact that why the phone charges fast then jumps into trickle charge

So you think the OEMs who launch fast charging without even considering your dumbass basic statement.

If you are talking about the 30W and 40W of Oneplus 7T and P30 Pro, Samsungs 25W is faster than the 30W of oneplus. Almost as fast as the 40W of P30 Pro too. They can be bested by the upcoming 50+W ones though

Samsung is doing pretty well with USB C PD 3.0 with PPS , why can't people let them have a win? I'm sure they will ramp up the speeds with better battery tech instead. I find a full charge to be reasonable within 60 mins.

I mean my 18W is plenty fast. My phone has good battery life. Most 0%-50% times are already fast and thats the most important. Trickle charging in the later percentages.

That’s because you don’t own any phones with 50w charging.
