Last night, the Android Police website published a report revealing the key specifications of all three Samsung Galaxy S21 series phones. Although scattered information about these phones has been spread over the past weeks and months, now, thanks to this report, we can safely deal with their main features. The report also states that the published renderings of these phones are very accurate.
Samsung Galaxy S21 series: Display
First of all, we have to deal with the screen. According to the report, the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra use 6.2, 6.7, and 6.8-inch screens, respectively. Both the S21 and S21 Plus are based on the FHD + display with a 120Hz refresh rate, but unlike the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, this refresh rate is not variable.
On the other hand, Samsung has used the best display available for the Ultra model. That’s why we see WQHD + resolution and LTPO technology, which reduces energy consumption. Also, thanks to the variable rate refresh capability, this display can select a refresh rate from 1 Hz to 120 Hz depending on the displayed content. Another important feature is that we should not miss the maximum brightness, which now reaches 1600 nits, while the S20 Ultra display has a maximum brightness of 1400 nits. The contrast ratio of this display is said to be 3 million to 1, which is an extraordinary figure.
There have been several reports of support for the Galaxy S21 Ultra from the S Pen, and now this report once again confirms support for this feature. Of course, this pen is not supposed to be in the body of the phone and it is not installed in the box of this phone. Of course, it seems that Samsung is offering special protective cases for this phone that can hold the S Pen.
Samsung Galaxy S21 series: Designing
As we said, the leaked renderings of these phones show their details very accurately. This means that this year Samsung has decided to change the design of the camera module for the Galaxy S21 family, and now the left and top of this module cover part of the edge of the phone’s body. In addition, depending on the overall color of the body, we will see different colors for the frame and the camera module.
But according to the new report, it is said that the Galaxy S21 will be launched with a plastic back panel. This is what Samsung has done for the Galaxy Note 20 and it seems to be happy with the end result. Of course, the S21 Ultra is introduced with a glass back panel, and no information has been revealed about the back panel material of the Plus model.
Users can choose from pink, purple, gray, and white to buy the S21. The S21 Plus is also available in silver, black and purple, and finally the S21 Ultra in black and silver.
The Galaxy S21 series handsets will be introduced in most markets with the Exynos 2100 chip, and in some markets, such as China and the United States, will be available with the Snapdragon 875 chip. According to published reports, the Exynos 2100 does not seem to be much different from the Snapdragon 875 in terms of performance, and maybe even better.
Both chips are 5G; This means that this phone supports 5G internet. It is unclear whether Samsung will launch models that only support LTE internet, as it did last year. The S21 and S21 Plus support Wi-Fi 6 technology, but the Ultra can take advantage of Wi-Fi 6E, which Samsung claims is twice as fast as Wi-Fi 6.
The S21 and S21 Plus come with 4,000 and 4,800 mAh batteries, respectively. Galaxy S21 Ultra users can also benefit from a 5000 mAh battery by purchasing this phone. Their maximum charging speed has not been confirmed yet, but we can expect support for a minimum speed of 25 watts. We still can’t comment on the amount of RAM and internal memory.
The Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus will not be much different from the previous generation in terms of camera. Both are said to use a 12-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 64-megapixel telephoto camera.
Regarding the Ultra model, we will see the second generation of the 108-megapixel sensor, which has the same 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera. As expected, the module has two telephoto cameras, one based on a 10-megapixel sensor with 3x zoom capability and the other a 10-megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom. Samsung has also used a laser autofocus system for this camera.
In addition, the ability to shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second is no longer limited to the main cameras, and all cameras can take advantage of this feature. Depending on the ambient light conditions, the cameras of these phones can automatically select 30 or 60 frames per second for video recording. Finally, we should not miss the opportunity to enjoy 8K video at 30 frames per second.
Price and release date
The report does not mention the exact price of these phones, but it seems that Samsung intends to market them at lower prices than the previous generation. One of the whistleblowers has announced that the Galaxy S21 family will be introduced on January 16th and will reach users on February 1st. Finally, we need to see how much these phones can attract users.
