Smartphone companies have long tried to release all-screen devices by using a variety of techniques. Some tried to minimize the top bezel and ended up using a notch. Some tried to avoid the notch and ended up placing cameras in punch holes. Some even tried to use pop-up cameras so that the display will be wider and without any obstruction.

A new leak, spotted by GizChina, revealed Samsung's plans to widen the display on the Galaxy S11 lineup. The plan doesn't remove the centrally-located punch hole similar to the one on the Galaxy Note 10 series; instead, it minimizes the chin and makes it so thin it's as if it's not there anymore.

The leak, coming from noted Samsung tipster Ice Universe, showed two images of what appears to be the Galaxy S11's front panels. While the top part of the alleged panels have thin bezels all around, the bottom part of the panels show a chin that's not as thin but is still thinner compared to older smartphone models.

The images also reveal that the Galaxy S11 series will have a display that curves on all sides: top, left, right and bottom. It doesn't reveal anything more about the devices.

The new leak adds to the growing list of details that have been leaked to the public in recent weeks.

First, a listing on China's CCC reveals that Samsung's upcoming devices will have support for 5G. It's worth noting that not all of the Korean tech giant's flagships for 2019 offered support for the new ultra-fast network. The listing reveals that all of the company's flagships for 2020 will have support for it.

Second, the same listing revealed that the Galaxy S11 will have 25W fast-charging as standard. It's worth noting that while this is faster than the 15W charging on the Galaxy S10, it's still slower compared to the 45W fast-charging on the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. Still, it's a welcome improvement.

Third, the Galaxy S11 series might feature a camera sensor dedicated for low-light photography. This feature, called the “Bright Night Sensor,” indicates Samsung's intention to overtake other smartphone makers in the arena of night photography.
