Samsung has a tradition of launching the Galaxy S series around Feb or March since the first S series. And now we have rumors of an early launch, which is hard to believe but because of the uncertain situation amid the pandemic, anything can happen. Recently, a reputable leaker with a Twitter handle named job_processor uploaded a tweet about the early release of the Galaxy S series.
He isn't always right but now seems very confident about his claim. He said that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 ultra on 14 January 2021, with pre-orders starting within a week. He also said that devices will be available for sale in the open market from 29 January. He further mentions the color of the devices as black, white, silver, violet, and pink in the same tweet. We already have a few leaks suggesting that Samsung is considering an early launch for the S21 series due to the coronavirus situation, though this is the first time anyone mentions January as the releasing month.
Other leaks regarding colors gave almost the same color options ranging grey, pink, and violet for the Galaxy S21, black and silver for the Galaxy S21+, and black, silver, and violet for the S21 ultra. Bear in mind that these are just rumors and no official release dates. Even if the rumor isn't true, we will have the S21 series by March 2021 in the market. The previous Galaxy S9 was released on 25 February and went on sale from 16 March. The Galaxy S10 was announced on 20 Feb and hit the market on 8 March, and the Galaxy S20 was announced on 11 Feb and went on sale from 6 March. In terms of price, we'd expect the devices to be in a similar position, with the Galaxy S21 being the cheapest and the Galaxy S21 ultra.
Xiaomi released the Mi 11 a few months ago in December, with an internal release event following in January this year. The company didn't didn't release any premium model at that point, however, today, it introduced two new additions to Mi 11 series that are called Mi 11i and Mi 11 lite. This year's Mi 11 ultra is the high-end premium smartphone that is an upgrade of its predecessor Mi 11 ultra.
According to the leaks, the main selling point of the phone is an 11-inch OLED screen on the rear side of the device to preview selfies, while allowing you to take pictures with the ultra-wide and standard camera sensors. But the screen also provides always-on functionality and display message or phone notifications. The device also comes with a power saver mode that allows you to use the rear display alone. A rear screen isn't just a great design feature, as the phone offers an IP68 rating for the first time.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 888 Soc, features a 6.81-inch QHD+OLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate and Gorilla glass protection. The phone comes with a massive 5,000mah battery with 67W wired and 67W wireless charging. The phone charging goes from zero to 100% only in 36 minutes.
Mi 11 Pro is powered by the same processor as Mi 11i, features a 6.67-inch QHD+OLED screen but has IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. The phone comes with the same battery and charging capacity as Mi 11i. Xiaomi's Pro model also delivers a 50MP primary camera, a 13MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 5x 8MP periscope camera. You can also shoot a 1,920fps slow-motion video on the Pro and Ultra models. Other two phones included in the series are simply 4G and 5G variations of Mi 11 lite that features a 6.55-inch FHD+ OLED screen with 90Hz refresh rate, a 4,250mAh battery, and 33W wired charging. The two phones share the same 64MP primary camera sensor specs, with 8MP ultra-wide sensor, and 5MP telephoto macro lens. All of these phones come with Android 11 and MIUI 12 out of the box.
Samsung Galaxy S series has come a long way since the first Galaxy S phone was released back on June 4, 2010. Since then the Galaxy S series just keeps getting better every year. In the year 2020, Samsung came up with a new number, and instead of Galaxy S11, it was branded as Galaxy S20. The next Galaxy S phone is called as Galaxy S21 and might release in the first quarter of the year. Although there is still more than a year left before its release date, Samsung fans and informants are leaking news all over the internet.
Quite recently, a reputable tech news magazine reveals that initially the next Galaxy S phone might be launched with Exynos 1000 processor equipped with Snapdragon 875 and Samsung's own chip. It is reported that both Exynos 1000 and Snapdragon uses the 5n process. As per official sources, the Exynos 1000 will be at least 3 times faster than the Snapdragon 865. Exynos series hasn't gained much popularity over the years as compared to Qualcomm, MediaTek, or Huawei's in-house made Kirin chips. But this might change next year. Samsung's processor uses RDNA GPU technology that was authorized by AMD to Samsung in 2019 to replace the existing Maili GPU. This chip will greatly improve the graphics performance of the chip.
In addition to hardware-configure, another leak is related to Samsung's under-screen camera system that is under process right now. Although Galaxy Note 20 series might be too late to carry, Samsung Galaxy S21 will likely to have an under-screen camera solution. The rear camera may also be upgraded to 150 million pixels, as well as 64 million telephoto, 16 million pixels ultra-wide angle, plus a 12 million pixel depth of field lens and ToF, creating a five-camera system. As per leaks, the imaging system of the new machine will break through the new industry standards and get much better in terms of performance.
This year we saw Galaxy S20 and now the tech experts are looking for anything they can find about next year's Galaxy S21. There isn't much information on the Galaxy S21 yet but we have some rumors that suggest the possible design of the mobile device. The reputable leaker on social media with username @OnLeaks has shared a few leaked render images on Voice with a phone with a screen of apparently roughly between 6.7 and 6.9 inches. The phone has a punch-hole camera in the top-center and virtually there seem no bezels around the display. The phone features a curved display as it does with a few Galaxy S series phones. The rumors about the curved display isn't confirmed by other leakers who suggest otherwise.
The Galaxy S21 ultra looks similar to other phones from the same series based on the leaked images, but the rear side contains a much larger camera bump in the top-left corner. As per the report, the block is almost twice as big as the one on the regular Galaxy S21. The source expects this to house up to four lenses compared to three on the standard model, and if this leak is right it also features the flash, which leaks suggest sits outside the camera bump on the standard Galaxy S21. We don't know the functionality of these extra lenses but a previous leak suggested that the device might have a 108-MP primary camera sensor, and a 12MP ultra-wide one, with two lenses dedicated to zoom functionality.
Other details suggest that the camera might have dimensions of apparently around 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9mm. Whereas the Samsung Galaxy S21 ultra is only 166.9 x 76 x 8.8mm. There is also no slot for an S pen, despite some rumors that Samsung might add support for its stylus to the Galaxy S21 range. We are expecting the phone to be launched in early January, and with few significant phones being released near the date.
Believe it or not, we have survived 2020. We are only a few weeks away from the launch of Samsung's next flagship smartphone series, the Galaxy S21. As usual, we are getting the leaks ahead of the phone. As per reports, there will be three models in the series including the Galaxy S21, the Galaxy S21 plus, and Galaxy S21 ultra. The standard Galaxy S21 is expected to feature a 6.2-inch display screen, the plus model features a 6.7-inch display, and the S21 ultra features a 6.9-inch screen. Another leak by android police suggests a two-tone possible design for S21 series with bronze accents. Samsung Opera house confirmed the colorway availability of the S21 series. The standard S21 will be available in gray/black, pink, purple, and white. The plus variant, the valid colors are silver, gray/black, and purple.
An extensive leak by the same leaker in mid-November revealed all the key specs for the S21. The phone will be powered by Snapdragon 888 and in some regions Snapdragon 875. All phones are rumored to have a 120Hz display refresh rate. The standard S21 and S21 plus will have 128GB RAM/256GB storage whereas the S21 ulta will have options like 128GB, 256GB, 512GB. According to the Android police leak, the S21 will feature a 4,000mAh battery. The S21 plus could be powered by a 4,800mAh battery. The S21 ultra will probably get the bigger 5,000mAh battery as its predecessor. The battery capacity of the ultra model was also verified by WinFuture.
Samsung could feature a 65W fast charging.The regular S21 and S21 plus will have the same camera specs that include a 12MP primary camera alongside a 12MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 64MP sensor for telephoto duties. For the front camera, the phone houses a 10Mp camera sensor. The S21 series smartphones can shoot up to 8K video at 30fps, 4k at 60fps, and 1080p video up to 240fps. Samsung Galaxy S21 ultra will have a second-generation 108MP as the primary camera along with two 10MP camera sensors. One of these lenses will support up to 10x optical zoom. Earlier rumors also point to another camera lens of 12MP wide-angle sensor. The smartphone series also sports laser autofocus. According to another report, the pricing could start from $849 and go up to $1249. The prices aren't confirmed yet and might slightly changed according to the region and parts of Europe.
Ever since the Galaxy S21 ultra was revealed, Samsung fans were eager to get their hands on it mainly because of the awesome camera features and adaptive display refresh rate. Usually, Samsung smartphones aren't good with their battery life, and consume batery life much faster but this isn't the case with the Galaxy S21 ultra. Most users are reporting more than 5 hours of on-screen time. The Galaxy Note 20 ultra is the first Galaxy phone with a variable rows refresh rate which allows the device to adapt and drop the refresh rate to 10Hz depending on the activity you are performing. It seems all very seamless while keeping the battery last longer.
The device has an ultra-wide camera that has dual pixel autofocus, and Samsung has enabled users to shot videos at 60 frames per second. The result is a more dynamic and sharper video that is better than anything you can get with its predecessors. The Galaxy S21 Ultra is priced at $1,199, which is $200 less costly than the S20 ultra. The new phone comes in a sleek design and offers a much faster-processing speed with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 chip. The in-screen fingerprint sensor is now bigger and it should be a bit easier for anyone to unlock this device.
Samsung didn't put the charger or microSD card slot to expand the storage but overall the S21 ultra looks like the most versatile Galaxy phone ever. The phone has a dual telephoto camera lens with 3x and 10x optical zoom that can get you very close to the subject. The S-Pen works in the same way as its predecessor. With a price tag of over $1,000, the S21 ultra isn't a cheap phone but it's a great phone with premium features. Samsung has already started its pre-order starting January 14. The phone will be released on January 29. The phone is available in Phantom Silver and Phantom Black colors but the matte finish looks sophisticated and expensive. Samsung will offer Phantom Navy, Phantom Titanium, and Phantom Brown colors as well.
