Purported Samsung Galaxy S21 spec sheet reveals some surprising downgrades

Samsung is reportedly in the works to launch a new mid-range Android smartphone, dubbed the Samsung Galaxy M42.

The list of Samsung flagship smartphones launching in 2021 does not include the Galaxy Note 21 series, at least that's what the tipster says.

Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy S21 series as early as January next year and now we get some interesting details for the next flagship trio.

He makes no mention or reference to the new Samsung Galaxy Note device. There are many devices already in the Galaxy M series, including the Galaxy M21, M31, M31 Prime and more. In Samsung's mobile branding nomenclature, the M series stands below the A which stands below the S, so all of these changes aren't surprises.

The speculation that the S21 Ultra will support an S Pen appears to have been confirmed by Android Police's sources.

Labeled as SM-G996U, the Galaxy S21 Plus can be seen with an 1120 single-core test score and a 3319 multi-core test score. But so far the S21 family looks like a case of evolution rather than revolution, with noteworthy upgrades to the camera system of the S21 Ultra, but little else to write home about. It is rumored that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will also support Samsung's stylus.

The design of the Galaxy S21 phones is said to line up with those CAD renders that leaked a month ago. Besides, the benchmark results of the Exynos variant is two months old.

In terms of the tech specs, both the smartphones are expected to come equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, 2GB RAM, 32GB ROM, 5.71-inch HD+ display, and a 3500mAh internal battery.

The battery capacity of all three devices in the Galaxy S21 series will remain similar to the Galaxy S20 series. The Samsung Galaxy M51 is priced starting at Rs.24999 for the base model and comes in different variants. On the other hand, S21 and S21 Plus would have a 12MP main lens, a 64MP telephoto lens, and a 12MP ultra wide lens. The Galaxy S21 Ultra, however, will feature an improved 108-megapixel sensor (Gen 2), paired with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens, and will feature two telephoto sensors - a 3X telephoto, and a 10X "super" telephoto lens. The front is flat and the rear has a square camera module. It was reported that Samsung, which released the One UI 3.0 Beta update for Galaxy Z Flip 5G yesterday, abruptly withdrawn this update.

There were leaks and speculations around an upcoming Samsung smartphone, Galaxy S21 Series in the recent past.
