This trademark has been registered with the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) on November 6. Created to be included in future smartphones, the trademark relates to software created to help the camera zoom into high-quality images without losing quality, going beyond the lens' physical capabilities.

Samsung have never really double-downed on cameras for their flagship Galaxy S-series smartphones. These hybrid-zoom systems offer improved quality of images than what can be captured using digital zoom.

Samsung is rumored to up its camera game significantly next year, with reports talking about possible 5x optical zoom on the shooter. The rumor was more or less confirmed by Samsung which codenamed the Galaxy S11's camera "Hubble". Hubble is a telescope that was sent to space to capture distant galaxies.

With this in mind, one must wonder if it's a Galaxy-A series phone that'll get Space Zoom first.

The company also recently launched the SpaceSelfieMission for the Galaxy S10 5G, which hints that the company is all about space brandings at the moment. This is a camera sensor that detects objects and movements.

Samsung Electronics Co. on Friday launched the Galaxy Fold in China, pitting its first foldable device against Huawei's upcoming Mate X. The source didn't provide any further information regarding the Galaxy S11.

Samsung will nearly certainly announce several Galaxy S11 phones as part of the series, we're guessing at least three.

The smartphone is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor and would run Android 10 out of the box.
