The camera could be one of the most exciting aspects of the Samsung Galaxy S11. Earlier rumors pointed to both a 108-megapixel sensor and a lens with 5x optical zoom – but now the zoom lens seems even more impressive.
Twitter leaker @UniverseIce has tweeted that "the S11 not only has a normal optical 5x zoom". You did not say what that meant, and the wording says that the 5x optical zoom lens still sounds like something special or unusual.
In response to this tweet, they also stated that the Samsung Galaxy S11 would probably be a bit thicker than the 7.8mm Galaxy S10. But back to the subject of camera, we have an idea of what the zoom lens could do especially.

As you can see, according to The Elec (a South Korean tech news site), MecaTech Systems is providing test frames for a folded camera in the Galaxy S11.
A folded camera is a design in which periscope-like lenses are less highlighted by lateral insertion of the camera body. So, this is further proof that the Samsung Galaxy S11 will have a zoom lens and that, despite its impressive alleged zoom level, it is quite flush with the back of the handset.
That could be what @UniverseIce is talking about, because it's not "normal", though we hope it means something more exciting.
There are many things that we do not know about the Samsung Galaxy S11, but the phone, which is unlikely to be released until February, is not surprising. We will be sure to keep you informed of any credible leaks and rumors.
