Should you wanted affirmation that the leaks had been heading in the right direction, Samsung’s teaser picture above confirms the rumored S21 digicam bump design, which is proven disembodied and saved in a glass field. The brand new digicam bump is the massive design change this yr—Samsung’s digicam answer has a brand new wrap-around design and is built-in into the nook of the telephone. This sounds a bit scary for drop survivability, however the official renders appear to indicate a seam alongside the sting of the telephone, hopefully indicating that the digicam glass does not really wrap across the sides of the telephone. It actually appears distinctive.
We all know most of what we’ll be getting with the Galaxy S21. The S21 would be the US’ first telephone with the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC (the world’s first Snapdragon 888 telephone, the Xiaomi Mi 11, has already been introduced for China, and a few territories will get an S21 with a Samsung Exynos chip). The 888 will carry an ARM Cortex-X1 design to market, combine a 5G modem into the primary SoC design, and, for choose ultra-premium telephones, will embody Wi-Fi 6E.
Android Police has leaked spec sheets for your complete lineup, which needs to be the S21, S21+, and S21 Extremely. All three fashions have a 120Hz show, divvied up into 6.2-inches, 6.7-inches, and 6.8-inches respectively. Final yr, the S20 line had 120Hz, 1440p shows, however you could not run the telephone at each 120Hz and render the UI on the full 1440p decision. This yr it appears like Samsung is fixing that by downgrading the bottom and Plus mannequin to a 1080p show, whereas the Extremely will keep at 1440p and hopefully can run at max refresh price and determination.
For battery energy, we needs to be taking a look at 4000mAh for the S21, 4800mAh for the Plus, and 5000mAh for the Extremely mannequin. The S21 and S21+ have three rear cameras, a 12MP foremost, 12MP ultra-wide, and a 64MP telephoto. Just like the Observe line, the bottom mannequin S21 ought to have a plastic again, whereas the opposite fashions can be glass.
The costlier S21 Extremely is not a lot greater than the S21+, however it ought to have some unique options. The Extremely is rumored to be the one mannequin with Wi-Fi 6E help, together with help for Samsung’s S-Pen stylus, borrowing a function from the perhaps useless, perhaps not, Galaxy Observe line. In contrast to the Observe line, the S-Pen is not stowable within the Galaxy S21 Extremely, and we’re already seeing leaks of cumbersome S21 Extremely circumstances that provide exterior stylus storage. The Extremely must also have a singular digicam setup, with a 108MP foremost sensor, a 12MP wide-angle, a 10MP 3X optical telephoto, and a 10MP 10x optical telephoto digicam.
