According to past leaks, both handsets will sport periscope lenses to achieve these optical zoom capabilities.
The S11+ will reportedly also sport a 108-megapixel sensor, an ultrawide-angle lens and a time-of-flight sensor for depth. It’s currently unclear what other lenses or sensors the P40 Pro will feature.
Samsung will reportedly unveil the Galaxy S11 series on February 18th, and Huawei will reveal its P40 series in March.
