Samsung Obtains Patent in South Korea for Triple Selfie Camera – Will Samsung Galaxy S11 Sport it?

The desire to keep improving on the specifications and features of smartphones from one version to its successor keeps bringing up new ideas. Samsung, the South Korean smartphone maker will be launching its Samsung Galaxy S11 along with S11+ and S11e in the first quarter of 2020. The latest information is that the company has been granted a new patent by the South Korean Intellectual Property Office (KPIO). The patent features a horizontal punch hole that can house triple camera arrangement in the front display. There is no confirmation yet that this will be incorporated in Samsung Galaxy S11+ next year, an improvement from the dual selfie cameras that you saw with Samsung Galaxy S10+.

What Would be the Third Sensor?

The front camera setup on the Samsung Galaxy S10+ has two sensors, one a normal selfie shooter and the other a depth sensor. You can only make an educated guess on what the company would add as the third component if Samsung Galaxy S11+ were to have a triple front camera setup. A common guess is that the manufacturer would add a wide-angle lens as the third component on its secondary shooter.

There are phones with wide-angle lenses fitted as part of triple-camera setups. If the selfie snappers are used to take a group selfie, this lens will be quite useful. There is another suggestion that the third sensor could be a gesture sensor. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro has a dedicated lens for identifying hand gestures.

Samsung Could Introduce the Face ID Technology

Continuing with guesswork on the options Samsung has on packing three front cameras in its forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S11+, there is another prediction. The Korean major could provide a Face ID functionality for unlocking S11+ with lenses that can combine and offer a face recognition feature. This will be similar to the Face ID that you see on the iPhones.

Other details emerging out of these leaks claim the front screen itself has very thin bezels making available additional space for display.

These speculations on camera setups of the S11 series will now shift to other models, the Samsung Galaxy S11 and S11e. Again, the obvious assumption would be that Galaxy S11 will be prompted to sport a dual-camera setup. The company may not make any change to the front camera setup in the budget model, the Samsung Galaxy S11e.

You will have to wait till the MWC 2020 in February to know the full details.
