Samsung’s new flagship will weigh anchor early 2021, and the filtration machinery is already working at full capacity.
According Android Police, the Galaxy S21 will arrive in three flavors, like its predecessor:
- Samsung Galaxy S21: 6.2-inch Full HD + screen. 120 Hz LTPS panel. 4000 mAh battery. Triple rear camera: 12 MP main + 12 MP wide angle + 64 MP telephoto lens. Wi-Fi 6. Available in Phantom Violet, Phantom Pink, Phantom Gray, and Phantom White.
- Samsung Galaxy S21+: 6.7-inch Full HD + screen. 120 Hz LTPS panel. 4800 mAh battery. Triple rear camera: 12 MP main + 12 MP wide angle + 64 MP telephoto lens. Wi-Fi 6. Disponible en Phantom Silver, Phantom Black y Phantom Violet.
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra: 6.8 inch Wide Quad HD + screen. LTPO panel adaptable from 1 to 120 Hz. 5000 mAh battery. Quadruple rear camera: 108 MP main with second generation sensor + 12 MP wide angle + 10 MP 3x telephoto lens + 10 MP 10x periscope. Wi-Fi 6E. Available in Phantom Black and Phantom Silver.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra will be the most exclusive model: the only one with a periscope camera (and new sensors with larger pixels), Wi-Fi 6E (twice as fast as Wi-Fi, compatible with the 6 GHz band) and a screen LTPO (able to go from 120 to 1 Hz to save battery without the user noticing).
In addition, you will have a glass cover (unlike the plain Galaxy S21, which would have a plastic cover), a maximum brightness of 1600 nits and, for the first time, an S Pen support. The stylus will not be built into the phone, as in the Note range, but will be sold separately. Where is it kept, then? In a special case Samsung with a dedicated compartment.
All three phones will be able to record 8K video at 30 fps and 4K video at 60 fps. They will come with a powerful Exynos 2100 processor (or a Snapdragon 875, depending on the market), 5G, Bluetooth 5.1 and the Android 11-based One UI 3.1 interface. The Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra will also support the ultra-wideband and the digital key function (to open the car without taking the phone out of your pocket).
The new Samsung Galaxy S21, Samsung Galaxy S21 + and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra are expected to be announced at an Unpacked event in January 2021.
