The Samsung Galaxy S21 vary would possibly virtually be right here, with rumors and even a Samsung retailer suggesting that it is going to be introduced on January 14.
As typical with imminently approaching flagships quite a bit has already leaked, so we now have a reasonably good thought of what the vary (which is anticipated to additionally embody the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra) will supply, however there are nonetheless some issues that we’re in no way clear on.
Below, then, you’ll discover the 5 big Samsung Galaxy S21 facts that we’ve got left to learn. From the potential of an S Pen stylus to the all-important value, these are issues that we’ve both heard nothing about, or the place the leaks are unclear or unsure.
1. The digital camera particulars
We have a reasonably good thought of the digital camera setup on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, as a lot of leaks have detailed it and are largely in settlement, however for the Samsung Galaxy S21 and Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus, issues are a bit foggier.
That stated, we now have an thought of the core specs – supposedly each the Samsung Galaxy S21 and Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus may have a 12MP important, 12MP ultra-wide, and 64MP telephoto sensor.
But we don’t understand how far they’ll give you the chance to zoom, what apertures they’ll have, or actually some other particulars past the above.
On prime of which, not many sources have talked in regards to the cameras on these two telephones, so we’re much less sure even of the megapixel counts than on the S21 Ultra (which is rumored to have a 108MP important, a 12MP ultra-wide, and a pair of 10MP telephoto sensors).
2. Whether there will probably be an S Pen
One of the most important rumors in regards to the Samsung Galaxy S21 vary is that at the least one of many fashions will help the S Pen stylus that Samsung often reserves for the Galaxy Note vary, however some questions stay round it.
For one factor, whereas it appears almost certainly that the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will help the stylus, it’s much less clear whether or not some other fashions will – although the consensus to this point is that they most likely received’t. It’s additionally not completely clear whether or not the stylus will come within the field or be bought individually (although the latter at present appears to be like extra possible).
And we’re not even completely certain that any fashions will help it. While it’s been leaked a lot of occasions, this is able to be a big change for Samsung, and provides the Note vary much less purpose to exist, so this most likely isn’t one thing we’ll ensure of till Samsung itself confirms it.
3. The refresh charge
All three Samsung Galaxy S21 fashions are rumored to have a 120Hz refresh charge, as we’d anticipate, however what we’re not clear on is whether or not they’ll give you the chance to use that refresh charge whereas additionally working at full decision.
This is one thing a lot of handsets – such because the OnePlus 8 Pro – supply, however each the Galaxy S20 vary and the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra pressure you to select both a 120Hz refresh charge at Full HD decision, or a 60Hz refresh charge at QHD decision. So we’re actually hoping Samsung types this for the S21 vary, however whether or not it’ll do stays to be seen.
4. The charging pace
We have already got some thought of the battery sizes within the Samsung Galaxy S21 vary, with the usual mannequin rumored to have a 4,000mAh one, the S21 Plus stated to have a 4,800mAh one, and the S21 Ultra a 5,000mAh one – although notably these specs haven’t been leaked by many sources, so we’re not completely assured of them.
But what we’re actually uncertain about is the charging speeds of the telephones. A certification for a Samsung charger that seems to supply 65W speeds has been noticed, nevertheless it’s completely unclear whether or not that is supposed for the Galaxy S21 vary, and that’s about all we’ve heard when it comes to charging pace.
It’s an vital query too, as a result of Samsung has been a bit inconsistent with charging speeds. While the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra helps a good 45W, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra tops out at simply 25W – as does the remainder of the S20 vary.
Samsung’s wi-fi charging speeds additionally aren’t tremendous excessive, with the S20 and Note 20 vary providing simply 15W speeds. At least that’s constant, however we’d like to see an enchancment.
5. The value
There have already been some value leaks, however to this point none that give us a precise determine for any of the three Samsung Galaxy S21 fashions, and one among them solely talked about costs in India, which isn’t tremendous useful when it comes to the US, UK, and Australia.
We additionally haven’t heard many sources speak in regards to the value, so even what we now have heard we’d take with a pinch of salt. Based on these leaks it’s at present sounding just like the three telephones is likely to be priced broadly according to their predecessors, nevertheless it’s unlikely they’ll value precisely the identical quantity.
