The Samsung Galaxy S21 is expected to get launched on January 14 with an expected release date of January 22, based on a leak provided by Android Authority. It has not been long since the launch of Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, massive leak suggests hints on new drop. While the S21 + probably comes with a back cover made of glass, the basic version S21 could only have a plastic cover.
The Samsung S21 may look pretty similar to the Galaxy S20, the S21 has a vertical camera stack and the front display is flat instead of curved. With comparison to the Galaxy S20, the camera bump is pretty big which is 157.7 x 72.2 x 7.9mm. The S21 and S21 Plus are expected to come with the same 2.5D screens included with their S20 counterparts. For the screens to be read easily outdoors, Samsung promises brightness up to 1300 candela. And for better resistance to knocks and scratches, the cover of the panels are made of Gorilla Glass 7.
Samsung Galaxy S21 will sport triple cameras in the back, sporting ultrawide 12MP sensor, a 12MP main sensor and a 64MP telephoto lens. Samsung will be bringing back 100x Space Zoom, while introducing laser autofocus on the S21 Ultra to avoid some of the focus problems from last year’s model. With the resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, Samsung has reduced the resolution significantly because the previous models each used a native resolution of an impressive 3200 x 1440 pixels.
Samsung is following the trend set by Apple and for the benefit of the environment, it does not include an adapter, saying that Samsung would ditch the in-box charger and is expected to have 4,000 mAh battery. The other features include two stereo speakers, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi 6 and an IP68-certified and thus waterproof and dustproof housing.
