Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus: Leaked hands-on video

As we getting closer to January when the new S21 will be official shown to the world, we are getting more information about the new Samsung’s flagship. This time a video leaked, showing the Samsung S21 Plus from all angles, its magnificent infinity display and a Geekbench benchmark score of 3,326 for multi-core (Samsung S20 Plus reached 3,034).

Edit: The official leaked video has been removed.

Samsung Galaxy S21: Design

The official renders weren’t published yet, for the reasons we stated earlier on, however, it was confirmed that the new Samsung Galaxy S21 should look more or less like a CAD renders presented to us via MySmartPrice blog.

Update: 28/12/2020

A few weeks before the global premiere of the Galaxy S21 series smartphones, the parameters of the highest model has leaked. The German magazine Winfuture.de has published complete specifications as well as product photos of the flagship Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Given the many previously confirmed predictions, there is no reason not to believe the information from this source.

The biggest change is the backside design in particular which differs from the previous models. The camera panel which is partially overflowing into the frame of the phone, will probably be the hallmark of the entire Galaxy S21 series.

The display will be a top Dynamic AMOLED 2X with a punch-hole for the front selfie camera, 2K resolution and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. Maximum instant brightness will “fire” up to 1,600 rivets. Samsung S21’s screen will get a Gorilla Glass 7 protection.

  • S21 will be available in Gray, Pink, Violet and White
  • S21+ will be available in Black, Silver and Violet with Pink in Korea.
  • S21 Ultra will be available in Black and Silver

16/12 Update:

The first official press render was released by Evan Blass (an American blogger and phone news leaker) via voice.com today, so we can see the Galaxy S21 in all its glory. So far, only from the front, but it reveals that the display will no longer be curved and we still see a small bullet hole for the front camera.

Samsung Galaxy S21: Hardware

Depending on the area, the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 chip or Samsung Exynos 2100 (successor to the Exynos 990) will power all three versions of the S21.

It’s also been claimed that the flagship smartphone series will support 5G and offer 128GB or 256 GB storage.

Samsung Galaxy S21: Battery

The built-in battery in S21 Ultra will offer a capacity of 5,000 mAh (4800 for S21) and can be charged both wired (45 W) and wirelessly. However, the charging adapter as well as the previously supplied AKG headphones will probably no longer be part of the box.

Samsung Galaxy S21: Camera

Even though no official statements were to this topic yet, the leak claims different camera settings for its models:

Some of the new features should allow the camera to automatically switch between 30 and 60 fps recording depending on the lighting conditions, a dual recording mode, improved night and moon mode and more amnual controls.

14/12 Update

According to Ice Universe‘s Twitter, Samsung Galaxy S21 will get an ultra-wide Sony IMX563 camera with 12 megapixels and autofocus. Compared to its predecessor Samsung S20, the photo quality should then increase as well as the range, from 120° to 123°. Thanks to the autofocus presence, the ultra-wide-angle camera can also be used to take macro photos.
