Samsung Galaxy S21 continue to reveal itself. A few weeks before the Unpacked conference in January 2021, a reputable informant published the full technical sheet of Samsung’s two future smartphones. Unsurprisingly, the two models share many similarities, including the same camera.
This Friday, December 25, 2020, Roland Quandt, a journalist at Winfuture, released the full technical sheet of two variants of the Galaxy S21 (S30): the standard S21 and the S21+. True to his habits, the informant had already lifted the veil on the technical sheet of the Galaxy S21 Ultra a few days earlier. In Europe, both smartphones are powered by the SoC Exynos 2100 coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128/256GB of internal storage.
The S21 and S21+ also share the same camera at the back and front. On the back, Samsung relies on a triple photo sensor consisting of a 64-megapixel main lens (f/2.0), a second ultra wide-angle module of 12 megapixels (f/2.2) and a wide-angle sensor (f/1.8). As expected, the South Korean manufacturer reserves the 108-megapixel sensor for the higher-end Galaxy S21 Ultra. In the hole in the screen is a 10-megapixel (f/2.2) frontal photo sensor. Finally, they are equipped with a 3x hybrid zoom and are capable of filming in 8K 30 fps, 4K 60 fps and Full HD up to 240 fps.
A plastic back for the standard S21
Now let’s talk about the differences between the two editions. The standard S21 is built around a 6.2-inch (2400 x 1080 pixel and 1300 nits) flat AMOLED 120 Hz display. For its part, the S21 is distinguished by a 6.7-inch slab. In addition to its size, the S21’s screen is identical to that of its little brother. There is also the same Gorilla Glass 7 screen protection. Samsung entrusts the range of the standard Galaxy S21 to a 4000 mAh battery. The S21 benefits from a 4800 mAh battery. Both smartphones have to settle for a quick charge of 25W, compared to 45W for the S21 Ultra.
On the design side, the two devices are identical. On the other hand, Roland Quandt believes that only the S21+ would have a glass back. For its part, the standard S21 should contend with a plastic back, like the standard Galaxy Note 20 launched a few months ago. As a reminder, Samsung will present the Galaxy S21 on January 14, 2021. We’ll tell you more as soon as possible.
