We know this about the Samsung Galaxy S21
In recent times, pretty much everything is about the Galaxy S21. For example, we know that the company comes with direct successors to the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra and therefore releases three devices. According to rumors, the design will be adjusted, but we should not expect any groundbreaking changes. The Galaxy S21 phones again have a front-filling display with a small hole for the selfie camera at the top.
More changes can be seen on the back. Leaked renders show that the ‘camera island’ ‘bends’ with the edge of the device. As a result, the cameras are more subtly concealed than with many other high-end Android phones. The cameras themselves are being improved and the S21 Ultra is said to have a whopping two zoom lenses. The S21 and S21 Plus have roughly the same cameras as their predecessors.
Furthermore, the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra run on the new Exynos 2100 processor and have screens with a high refresh rate of 120Hz. This makes animations look very smooth. In addition, the batteries are expected to be slightly larger and the phones run on Android 11.
Samsung Galaxy S21 release
The exact suggested retail prices and release dates of the Galaxy S21 phones are still unclear. However, rumors are talking about a January 29 release. According to rumors, we can also expect new wireless earbuds (the Galaxy Buds Pro) and smart bluetooth tracker (Galaxy Smart Tag) during the Unpacked event. So it is definitely worth watching the live stream.
