However, SamMobile notes (opens in new tab) that the date should be taken with a considerable pinch of salt, as it was unable to verify the authenticity of its source of the information.
Even if the specific date is inaccurate, it's safe to assume that the launch will take place in the third week of September – in line with the Galaxy S9 (opens in new tab) and Galaxy S10.

The Samsung Galaxy S11 is rumoured to feature (opens in new tab) a huge a 108MP rear-facing camera with a five-times optical zoom and could be available with 1TB of storage to boot.
It may even ship with a spectrometer (opens in new tab), which will let users measure everything from how dehydrated they are to the number of calories in a McDonald's Big Mac.
Plus, there's a chance, albeit a slim one, it will tout a buttonless design (opens in new tab) and will debut alongside a new accessory that'll turn incoming notifications into holograms (opens in new tab).
So the rumours are about as far-fetched as can be, but that will finally change when the first proper leaks start to emerge from Samsung's manufacturing facilities in China.
With the device scheduled to launch in February, we shouldn't have to wait too much longer until that becomes a reality, as it should enter production in the near future.
