Samsung Galaxy S21: Here’s what we know so far

Speculations surrounding some of the variants of the Galaxy S21 series are now mounting. And they are anything but ordinary.

While the Samsung Galaxy S21 series is still months away from being unwrapped, rumors associated with the lineup are already gaining quite a traction.

Larger batteries

One of the latest developments to have grabbed some headlines recently is the battery capacity of the Galaxy S21+ model. Leaked by a Dutch site, the phone with the model number SM-G996 and an accompanying battery model number EB-BG996ABY is revealed to pack a 4,660mAh capacity.

Under the notion that the Galaxy S21+ is tipped to feature a higher battery capacity than the current Galaxy S20+ model, we can be almost sure that the upcoming, other models in the Galaxy S21 series will follow suit.

Still Ultra

Another variant from the Galaxy S21 series, which generated buzz as of late, is the Ultra version. While the Plus version did make some noise relative to its battery offering, the more premium edition did carry some major scoop on its camera features. Well, not so much if you now own the Galaxy S20 Ultra.

According to the latest leak, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will still make use of the game-changing 108-megapixel sensor as its primary camera. While this might be underwhelming for some loyal fans, it is still likely to arrive with an upgraded version of the Samsung ISOCELL Bright HM1 camera sensor.

Meanwhile, the Ultra edition is tipped to be coming with a hyper-fast 60W charging. Alas, the details surrounding its battery capacity is still up in the air.

Exynos 1000 SoC in the works?

In terms of performance, it is speculated that the forthcoming top-of-the-line Galaxy series of smartphones will launch with Samsung’s homegrown Exynos 1000 system-on-a-chip, which is manufactured based on a 5nm architecture. As per tech sleuths in the industry, the South Korean tech giant’s in-house processor is as good as the forthcoming Snapdragon 875 chip from Qualcomm.

The upcoming Galaxy lineup is also pegged for some notable upgrades. These include Qualcomm’s new in-display fingerprint sensor, which is rumored to be 17 times larger than the one that is embedded on the Galaxy S20. On paper, this should be more efficient as well.

The Galaxy S21 series is, reportedly, arriving in three smartphone models, akin to the S20 lineup now.
