This is the Samsung Galaxy A11, the successor to the best selling Android phone of 2019
The tech world talks a lot about big flagship smartphone launches, but flagships aren’t the phones that most people end up buying. In fact, most people aren’t even buying the mid-range phones that we occasionally talk about. The real best-sellers are the budget phones, a good example of which is the Samsung Galaxy A10, which we just learned was the best-selling Android phone of 2019 according to Canalys. The Galaxy A series has been a huge success for Samsung as they try to keep up with value-oriented brands like Xiaomi and Realme. Now, we’re learning that Samsung is preparing to launch the successor to that device, the Galaxy A11.
There are a couple of recent leaks with information about the Galaxy A11. Frequent Twitter tipster Ishan Agarwal shared some specifications with 91Mobiles, claiming the device will feature a 6.4-inch LCD, a 13MP primary camera, an 8MP front camera, a 4,000mAh battery, and Android 10. That 13MP camera will be one of three rear cameras, but the specifications of the other two cameras are unknown.
We can also see a leaked photo (via 91Mobiles) and a render of the Galaxy A11 (via AndroidHeadlines), which reveal some extra details. The biggest change from the A10 to the A11 is the apparent inclusion of a fingerprint scanner on the rear. We can’t tell from the images if the A11 will have a USB Type-C port or a microUSB port like its predecessor. We also expect the Galaxy A11 to have a 3.5mm headphone jack like the A10 given it’s going to be a budget-oriented phone. That’s all we know about the device right now, though.
The Galaxy A10 launched exactly one year ago, so we can expect the Galaxy A11 to be announced soon. The Galaxy A41 also leaked earlier today, so it’s likely we’ll see Samsung unveil a slew of new Galaxy A series devices at once.
