Famed tipster Ice Universe has claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S11 will not use the 108-megapixel ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor that it launched earlier this year, but will instead utilise an upgraded second-gen sensor.
Here, Samsung has filed a trademark with European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) on November 28 which lists the item as "Bright Night Sensor" and the description states that it is an image sensor and not a software boost.

It's unclear if all the specs will actually be included in Samsung's final product as the phone isn't actually expected to be unveiled until February, but OnLeaks has a solid reputation for uncovering plans ahead of time. Apple is providing a much improved Night Mode. Admittedly, it's not as good as competitors like the Pixel, so a dedicated sensor could go a long way. It is also believed that it could be fitted with a 108mp sensor. Bloomberg said that Samsung will announce another foldable phone with a different design, one that folds vertically, as opposed to outward like the Galaxy Fold, as soon as this year. This may come with 8K video recording, Night Hyperlapse, and Vertical Panoramas.
The screen also appears to be a bit curvier than the S10 and will reportedly be an AMOLED display that spans 6.7 inches.

Under the hood, the S11 will allegedly house a Snapdragon 865 or Exynos 990 depending on the region. It may also have 25W fast charging.
