Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus display

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus is coming with a very similar design to its predecessor but much more refined. The most notable change in terms of the display is their new Blade Bezel which has significantly trimmed down the bottom bezel of the display. The Galaxy S21 Plus is coming with a 6.8″ QHD+ AMOLED display that is an LTPS panel and will be capable of 120hz at QHD+, or 60Hz at FHD+. It will be protected by the latest Gorilla Glass and utilise an ultrasonic in display fingerprint scanner along with the punch hole selfie camera.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus hardware

The Galaxy S21 Plus will be powered by the snapdragon 888 in the North America & other snapdragon regions with the Exynos 2100 being used globally. Many reports and leakers are suggesting that the Exynos 2100 CPU wil outperform the Snapdragon 888 this year so its going to be exciting to see the launch benchmarks. While no details have been leaked yet we are expecting the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus to come with 8GB Ram & 128GB storage and we also expect Micro SD support. While these could be increased we don’t see too much benefit from doing so but will update if any more news comes in.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus cameras

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus will be coming with a punch hole selfie camera on the front and a triple camera setup on the rear in this new camera housing. There were many hopes initially for the S21 Plus to be the first to feature UTG (under display selfie camera) but unfortunately the technology wasn’t ready in time for the release. The selfie camera sensor is still unknown with some claiming they’ll be sticking to a 10MP sensor and other leakers claiming a Larger 40MP camera. For the rear camera’s we’ll be getting a 12MP main camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera & a 64MP telephoto. While many do not seem to be a fan of the new S21 camera housing we think it gives the smartphone a much more premium look.

Samsung Galaxy Plus S21 battery

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus is going to be powered by a 4,800 mAh battery that will reportedly stick with the 25 watt fast charging when using a wire, and 15W wireless charging. Given its popularity we also expect to see the return of the Reverse wireless charging. There have been no leaks on this yet but whil its predecessor offered a 4.5W reverse wireless charging we’re hoping for an increase to 10W.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus additional specs

The Galaxy S21 Plus will be 5G compatible thanks to the latest chipsets & It will be using bluetooth 5.1 to be ready for all of the latest Bluetooth accessories. We’re also getting Wifi 6 & UFS 3.1 storage and the S21 Plus will of course be IP68 water resistant. The Galaxy S21 Plus will of course ship with OneUI 3.1 based on android 11 & when it comes to colour options of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus we get a choice of Phantom Black, Phantom Silver & Phantom Violet. While there are reports of the Galaxy S21 Plus supporting the SPen this is unfortunately not for the standard S21 or the S21 Plus & is only for the Ultra model.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus price

When it comes to pricing of the Galaxy S21 Plus there have been multiple rumours that it will be cheaper this year due to less sales than expected on the predecessor. A new leak on the Naver blog reports of an $1050 base cost for the Galaxy S21 Plus. While this would be incredible news we personally feel its a bit optimistic and are expecting a launch price of around $1150.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus release date

The Samsung Galaxy S21 series is expected to release much sooner this year and according to multiple leakers will be seeing its launch ahead of schedule in January. Onleaks also confirmed this when he released the latest CAD designs of the S21 line up. While we don’t have a specific date we know its arriving in January.
