Android fans are awaiting the arrival of Samsung's new flagship smartphone series, the Galaxy S21 series, and there is still no definitive release date set—rumor has it the Galaxy S21 family could be unveiled in January 2021, perhaps around the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) time frame. As we wait, a whole bunch of official looking press renders have leaked to the web. First let's talk about what is on tap from Samsung. If past leaks and rumors pan out, Samsung will launch three models, including the regular Galaxy S21 with a 6.2-inch display, a larger Galaxy S21 Plus with a 6.7-inch screen, and of course the big daddy of the bunch, the Galaxy S21 Ultra with a 6.8-inch screen, all three...

As we wind down what little is left of 2020, Samsung's head of mobile, Dr. TM Roh, penned a blog post waxing poetic on the company's product portfolio and technological developments, like having "led the charge with 5G and changed the shape of the future with a series of foldable smartphones." He also discussed what is store for 2021, promising it will be an "epic new year" with more innovation. So, what can we expect? Let's start with the easy stuff. Dr. Roh said in no uncertain terms that foldable phones are here to stay. Or more precisely, he said Samsung will be expanding its portfolio of foldables, in an effort to make the category more accessible to everyone. This suggests to me that cheaper... Read more...
There have been a bunch of Galaxy S21 teasers over the past several weeks and months, from renders highlighting the design to hands-on impressions that purport to detail some of the hardware and features of Samsung's upcoming flagship. The leaks and rumors are almost over, though, because the Galaxy S21 is launching next month. When it arrives, the US variant is likely to wield a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, as has been previously leaked. This is Qualcomm's latest flagship mobile processor that was recently shown off at an event. According to Qualcomm, the Kryo 680 CPU inside the Snapdragon 888 will deliver up to a 25 percent performance boost versus the Kryo 585 found in the Snapdragon... Read more...
We're fast approaching the launch of Samsung's next-generation Galaxy S21 family of smartphones, and unsurprisingly, details about the devices are coming more into focus. This time around, teasers for all three smartphones -- the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and the Galaxy S21 Ultra -- have all leaked. All three teasers are relatively short, but they confirm some critical details about the cameras on the smartphones and the overall design. The camera pod, which is better integrated and more stylish than before, houses three cameras on the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+. However, we see what looks to be at least four cameras on the back of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which is the flagship of the family.... Read more...
As we come closer to the start of the year 2021, we're beginning to hear more and more about the Galaxy S21 family of flagship smartphones from Samsung. The actual design of the smartphones has already leaked in renders, and we've even seen third-party cases for the smartphones which confirmed the new design. Today, however, we're getting a look at some real-life shots of both the Galaxy S21+ and the flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra. We only see the two smartphones from the rear -- sitting side by side -- which gives us a good look at their camera bumps. The Galaxy S21+ has a smaller camera array, with just three sensors (12MP primary, 12MP ultra-wide, 64MP telephoto). The Galaxy S21... Read more...
Qualcomm this week unveiled its next-gen Snapdragon 888 system-on-chip, a mighty slice of silicon that will power future flagship smartphones, and lo-and-behold there is already some leaked benchmark data highlighting the chip. As you might of guessed, the benchmark numbers reside over at Geekbench's database, a common destination for leaks. Part of what makes the Snapdragon 888 tick is its Kryo 680 CPU. According to Qualcomm, it delivers a 25 percent performance boost compared to the Kryo 585 CPU in the Snapdragon 865. It is based on Arm's powerful Cortex-X1 architecture and can hit clockspeeds of up to 2.84GHz. Additionally, it supports up to 16GB of LPDDR4x-2133 or LPDDR5-3200 memory. The... Read more...
In October, we got to see what appeared to be renders of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S21. The renders showed off a design that represented an evolution of Samsung devices that came before it, so we were not entirely sure if they were real or not. Prominent leaker IceUniverse on Twitter found some evidence that leads us to believe that the Galaxy renders were indeed accurate. He has now tweeted out phone case renders that look exactly like the Galaxy S21 images from October. The main design feature that sets these renders apart is the stack of three cameras with the flash offset to the right. The only time we saw this design was with the October renders, so this must be the Samsung Galaxy... Read more...
The smartphone upgrade cycle never ends for any manufacturer, and Samsung is no exception to that rule. The world's biggest smartphone maker seems to be pushing up its release cadence in an effort to combat slumping sales and an onslaught of new phones from Apple. We've already heard that the Galaxy S21 series might break cover officially earlier than its usual springtime release schedule would indicate. Now we're learning more about the specs of each device in the lineup, and getting confirmation from multiple sources. Thanks to previous leaks from Twitter leaker @OnLeaks, we know that the Galaxy S21 family will come with Qualcomm's heretofore unannounced Snapdragon 875 SoC. Now the folks... Read more...
Since August, there have been rumblings of the next Samsung Galaxy device in the works. Previously, we heard of the S-Pen making its way to the next high-end Galaxy "S" phones, and then Samsung began mass production of 16Gb LPDDR5 memory for the new phones. Now, Steve Hemmerstoffer, also known as @OnLeaks on Twitter, has shown off what appears to be Galaxy S21 renders. Looking at the device, the change that stands out the most, as Hemmerstoffer points out, is the “unique rear camera housing design.” Rather than having the camera bump inset from the frame, it wraps around the device and melds into it along the side for a smoother finish. Furthermore, rather than the square-ish camera... Read more...
