    Samsung Galaxy S21

    Samsung Galaxy S21

    The new Galaxy S21 Series 5G is the newest phone to be released by Samsung. There are two phones in this series: the S21 and the S21+.

    These two phones are very similar in looks, but the hardware is slightly different.

    Keep in mind that all of these specs are rumored, and official information is not out yet.

    The S21 has a 6.2-inch display, whereas the S21+ has a 6.7-inch display. This makes the S21+ slightly bigger than the S21.

    Just like the new iPhone 12s, these phones will not come with a charger included in the box.

    The S21+ has a slightly bigger battery, holding 4800 mAh, whereas the S21 has a battery with only 4000 mAh. The S21+ also weighs slightly more, sitting at 202 grams, while the S21 only weighs 171 grams.

    The CPU, RAM, operating system, rear and front cameras, storage, connectivity, and video recording in the S21 is the same as the S21+.

    The S21 compared to the S20 is not as superior as people would think it is.

    The S21 has a 6.2-inch FHD+ LTPS 120 Hz display, whereas the S20 only has a 6.2-inch QHD+ AMOLED 120 Hz display. This means that technically the S21 has a better display, but most people can’t tell the difference between the two.

    The CPU in the S21 is an upgraded version of the one in the S20, so the S21 should be able to run better.

    The S21, S21+, and the S20 all have the same rear camera specs, but the S20+ has an added VGA time-of-flight sensor.

    The S21 and S21+ have many more color options than the S20 and S20+, but other than that, the phones are nearly the same. “I might have to upgrade my Samsung soon,” says Colin Hill, a junior at Lakewood High School.
