This is expected to be an earlier release, and leaks have begun to flood into Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S21 series. Today, we will reveal almost all the specifications of each Galaxy S21 model in large quantities, as well as new details about each device.
If you remember last year, Samsung’s enemy in the leaked game is Max Weinbach, who reported the next series on Android Police today.
In his large amount of information, we got a lot of detailed information about the Galaxy S21 series and started with an almost complete list of specifications.
According to Weinbach’s sources, the Galaxy S21 series will undergo a modest, almost predictable upgrade over its predecessor.
First, start with the Snapdragon 875 or Exynos 2100 chipset, depending on the region, but obviously, these two chips are “equal” to each other this year, and we can’t tell this on the S20.
These three phones all retain the 120Hz display, but this time they are equipped with 6.2-inch and 6.7-inch OLED LPTS panels on the Galaxy S21 and S21+, both with FHD+ (1080p) resolution.
Compared with the last time, it has been reduced by one step. However, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be equipped with a 6.8-inch WQHD + (1440p) OLED LPTO display, which also has an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate, just like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
As previously reported, the S21 Ultra’s display will also have S Pen support, but not including S Pen. All three phones will also debut on Android 11 and One UI 3.0, and have 5G and Wi-Fi 6 connections for Ultra (Wi-Fi 6E).
S21+ and Ultra will also support UWB, including Samsung’s upcoming AirTags competitors.
From there, the specifications of each Galaxy S21 model are different. The smallest S21 will provide a 4,000 mAh battery and three cameras-main 12MP, ultra-wide 12MP, and telephoto 64MP.
The S21+ will have the same camera array as last year, but with a larger 4,800 mAh battery. At the same time, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be equipped with a 5,000 mAh battery, 108MP (Gen2) main camera, 12MP ultra-wide-angle, 10MP 3x optical, and 10MP 10x optical zoom camera.
It will also return to 100x “space zoom”, and the laser autofocus of the Note 20 Ultra will also pass, which is good news.
As far as design is concerned, the leaked designs we have seen in recent weeks are clearly accurate, although they are clearly different from the outside. This is based on official media reports that Weinbach has seen, but it cannot be shared yet.
However, in addition to the design, the report also claims that the S21 series will adopt some new “phantom” colors. The smallest devices include violet, pink, gray, and white, S21+ includes silver, black and purple, and S21 Ultra only includes silver and black.
It’s worth noting that the color of the frame and camera bumps are different depending on the model. This sounds like a good idea, but we have to see how it looks. Weinbach explained:
“The Phantom Black has a black frame and camera bumps, while the Phantom Purple and Phantom Pink have a copper body. Our source tells us that the Phantom White has a faint blue tone and a bronze bezel, similar to the color scheme of the blue and gold Note 7.”
Interestingly, in terms of materials, Samsung is also adopting this design in another way. In terms of materials, each S20 is similar, and the basic S21 device will be made of plastic.
S21 Ultra will stick to glass/metal, but it is not clear what route S21+ will follow. Obviously, Samsung’s fan response to the plastic backplanes of Note 20 and S20 FE was better than the company expected, which prompted this decision.
The pricing of the Galaxy S21 series is not yet clear, but there are obviously rumors that the company plans to lower the starting price this year.
Considering that the Galaxy S20 series starts at $1,000, it is difficult to gain any appeal, which is really good news. Currently, the series is expected to premiere in January.
