Samsung Galaxy S11 is due to launch in Q1 2020. Nevertheless, the rumour mill has been churning out the details about the new flagship. The Samsung Galaxy S11 5G variant is said to have received a certification in China that suggests 25W fast charging support. The Galaxy S11+, on the other hand, may come with 45W fast charging support. Separately, the Galaxy S11 is found to have a 5x zoom camera along with optical image stabilisation (OIS). Some renders of the Samsung Galaxy S11 have also surfaced online that are based on early rumours.

At MWC Shanghai, Samsung showcased its 45W fast charging technology. This debuted on the Galaxy Note 10+, but the company ended up bundling a 25W fast charger.

The certification spotted in China, as reported by SamMobile, suggests that instead of using 45W fast charging, the Samsung Galaxy S11 5G with model number SM-G9860 would have 25W fast charging. The Galaxy S11e would also come with 25W fast charging support. However, the top-of-the-line Galaxy S11+, may have 45W charging support to sit alongside the Galaxy Note 10+.

Some schematics sourced from a patent application filed by Samsung Electro-Mechanics tip OIS support on the Samsung Galaxy S11. The handset is also rumoured to include 5x optical zoom. Further, the schematics show a periscope-like camera architecture that includes a longer-than-usual telephoto lens.

The patent application, as noticed by SamMobile, was filed earlier this week with the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO). In September, a report suggested that the Galaxy S11 will come with a 108-megapixel primary camera. The September report also included some bits around OIS support and periscope architecture.
