The Samsung Galaxy M31 may gain a macro camera

Early leaks about the Samsung Galaxy M31 suggested that there will be no changes to the rear camera compared to the Galaxy M30s. However, a panel from the camera bump allegedly belonging to the M31 shows an extra hole – that’s one more camera.

The Galaxy A51 and A71 similarly gained an additional camera, specifically a dedicated macro module. So, it’s not unlikely that the new M-series phone will follow suit.


Macro cam aside, the Galaxy M31 is expected to keep the 48MP main and 8MP ultrawide cameras, the depth sensor too. The phone is also expected to keep the same chipset, Exynos 9611, though we’ve seen claims that it will use Snapdragon 665 instead (the choice of chipset may depend on the region).

Rumor has it that Samsung is also working on the Galaxy M11, M21 and M41. The Galaxy M41 will go up to a 64MP sensor for its main camera and an Exynos 9630 chipset while the Galaxy M21 should offer a 24MP main camera and Exynos 9609 or 9610 chipset.
