We’re now almost a month away from Samsung’s announcement of the Galaxy S21 series and we get our best look yet at the Galaxy S21 Ultra, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21.
The renders laid out before you are based on reliable inside information obtained to LetsGoDitigal, along with real photos of the devices, shared with the publication.
We’ll recap a lot of what we know about the Galaxy S21 series alongside the images. These aren’t the first renders we’ve seen of the Galaxy S21 line, they corroborate what we’ve heard about the design and features of the Galaxy S21, but they are more refined.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has a few key differences to the S21+ and S21. For starters it will be glass on both sides. Its camera island encompasses four imagers, an LED flash and a new ISOCell Vizion 3D ToF sensor.
The cameras are expected to be the 108MP HM3 sensor with 12% improved light sensitivity, a 12MP ultrawide camera and two 10MP zoom cameras – a periscope with 10x optical zoom and a second, 3x optical zoom camera. On the front there’s a 40MP selfie camera.
The display of the Galaxy S21 Ultra will have a 6.8-inch diagonal, down slightly from the S20 Ultra’s 6.9-incher, and will be covered by slightly curved glass.
The panel will be an adaptable one with up to 120Hz refresh rate. Rumor has it that Samsung will finally allow both 1440p resolution and 120Hz in conjunction.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra will be powered by an Exynos 2100 chipset globally and the Snapdragon 888 for Korea, China and the US. Both configurations will be 5G ready and two memory variants are expected to be paired to each chipset – 12/128GB and 16/512GB.
The battery is rumored to have the same capacity as the Galaxy S20 Ultra – 5,000mAh with 25W charge support.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will ship in two colors – Phantom Black and Phantom Silver.
Samsung Galaxy S21+
The Galaxy S21+ will retain the metal frame but will have a plastic rear panel, like the Galaxy Note20. The camera island on the rear will have just three lenses – a pair of 12MP for the main and ultrawide cameras, and a 64MP for 3x hybrid zoom images. Notice that the LED Flash is outside of the camera island.
The display on the front will be a 6.7-inch 1080p AMBLED with a constant 120Hz refresh rate. The glass on top will be flat.
The battery capacity is rumored to increase from the S20+’ 4,500mAh to 4,800mAh on the Galaxy S21+. The same 25W fast charging will be supported. Like the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the S21+ will run either an Exynos 2100 or a Snapdragon 888, both 5G.
The Samsung Galaxy S21+ will be available in Phantom Black, Phantom Silver and Phantom Violet.
Samsung Galaxy S21
The Galaxy S21 will have the most color options of the three with Phantom Gray, Phantom White, Phantom Violet and Phantom Pink option. It will share the cameras of the S21+ and have the same constraints when it comes to build quality and screen – plastic rear, flat display, 1080P and constant 120Hz refresh rate.
Additionally the Galaxy S21 will come with less memory at 8GB for the entry level model
