The Galaxy S21 and S21 + continue to unveil. A few weeks before the Unpacked conference in January 2021, a reputable informant released the full datasheet for Samsung’s two future smartphones. Not surprisingly, the two models share a lot in common, including the same camera.
This Friday, December 25, 2020, Roland Quandt, journalist at Winfuture, posted the full technical sheet of two variants of the Galaxy S21 (S30): the standard S21 and the S21 +. True to form, the informant had already lifted the veil on the Galaxy S21 Ultra technical sheet a few days earlier. In Europe, the two smartphones are powered by the Exynos 2100 SoC coupled with 8 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of internal storage.
The S21 and S21 + also share the same camera on the back and front. On the back, Samsung relies on a triple photo sensor made up of a main 64 megapixel lens (f / 2.0), a second 12 megapixel ultra wide-angle module (f / 2.2) and a wide-angle sensor (f / 1.8). As expected, the South Korean manufacturer reserves the 108 megapixel sensor for the more high-end Galaxy S21 Ultra. In the hole in the screen, there is a 10 megapixel front photo sensor (f / 2.2). Finally, they are equipped with a 3x hybrid zoom and are capable of filming at 8K 30 fps, 4K 60 fps and Full HD up to 240 fps.

A plastic back for the standard S21
Now let’s discuss the differences between the two editions. The standard S21 is built arounda 6.2-inch flat 120Hz AMOLED display (2400 x 1080 pixels and 1300 nits). For its part, the S21 + is distinguished by a 6.7-inch panel. Besides its size, the screen of the S21 + is identical to that of its little brother. There is also the same Gorilla Glass 7 screen protector. Samsung entrusts the autonomy of the standard Galaxy S21 to a 4000 mAh battery. The S21 + benefits from a 4800 mAh accumulator. The two smartphones must be satisfied with a fast charge of 25W, against 45W for the S21 Ultra.
On the design side, the two devices are identical. On the other hand, Roland Quandt believes that only the S21 + would sport a glass back. For its part, the standard S21 should deal with a plastic back, like the standard Galaxy Note 20 launched a few months ago. As a reminder, Samsung will present the Galaxy S21 on January 14, 2021. We will tell you more as soon as possible. While waiting for more information, feel free to give your opinion in the comments below.
