Samsung Galaxy S21 series specifications leaked
Android Police has leaked almost all specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series. As expected, according to the website, there will be three models again: the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra.
The phones will get a Snapdragon 875 or Samsung’s own Exynos 2100. That second processor is probably in our smartphones. Both chips would be about the same speed. That is good news, because in recent years “our” Exynos models were often slower than the devices with a Snapdragon processor. All variants seem to have 5G as standard.
The Galaxy S21 gets a 6.2-inch screen and Samsung puts a 6.7-inch display in the Galaxy S21 Plus. Their predecessors had displays of the same size. It is striking that the resolution decreases. Both smartphones get a full-hd-plus screen. The Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus had another display with QHD resolution.
We only find that higher pixel density on the Galaxy S21 Ultra this time. At 6.8 inches, it is a fraction smaller than the S20 Ultra. The three models all have a 120Hz screen. This makes scrolling through your social media, for example, a lot smoother.
The Ultra would also get a maximum brightness of no less than 1600 nits. This makes it easy to read the device in bright sunlight. You can also get started with an S Pen on the most expensive model. You have to buy it separately.
Little innovation in terms of battery and cameras
The Samsung Galaxy S21 models are very similar in specifications to the S20 series. The Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra have a battery of 4000 and 5000 mAh respectively. That is exactly the same as their predecessors. The Galaxy S21 Plus is improving a bit. It will receive a 4800 mAh battery. The S20 Plus had to make do with 4500 mAh.
Also in the camera area we see little innovation compared to the S20. The Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus have a 12 megapixel main camera, which is again assisted by an ultra-wide angle lens of the same resolution. In addition, Samsung again opts for a 64 megapixel telecamera.
If you want to take pictures with a 108 megapixel camera, you should go to the S21 Ultra. It is a new variant of the sensor in the Galaxy S20 Ultra. This model also gets a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, but has two telephoto cameras. One with which you can zoom in three times and one with which you bring the image up to ten times closer. The resolution of both lenses is 10 megapixels. Furthermore, the Ultra has laser autofocus.
Plastic housing for the Galaxy S21
Renders of the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Ultra leaked before. They are accurate according to Android Police. A striking detail is that the entry-level model would get a plastic housing.
The Galaxy S21 will soon be available in purple, pink, gray and white. With the S21 Plus you can choose from purple, silver and black. The S21 Ultra only comes on the market in a silver and black version. Prices could be slightly lower than this year, but details about this are as yet lacking.
According to rumors, Samsung will already present the Galaxy S21 series on January 14th. Do you want to stay informed of all the news about these new smartphones in the meantime? Sign up for our newsletter or download the free Android Planet app.
