Samsung Galaxy S21+ hands-on video leaked ahead of launch
This is the first unofficial hands-on look at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21+.
Samsung's Galaxy S21 series is slated for a January 14 release. The upcoming Galaxy S21 smartphones have been showing up in leaks and reports quite frequently. We now have a look at what's supposed to be the hands-on video for the Galaxy S21+.
A 4-minute video of the Galaxy S21+ has been posted on YouTube by Random Stuff 2. The video shows the front of the smartphone where we can see a single punch-hole camera, and almost no bezels on the display. At the rear, we can see the new camera design with three sensors. The design looks similar to what has been leaked so far. The Galaxy S21+ in the video is the black colour variant but more options are expected to be available.
The YouTuber also runs Geekbench on the Galaxy S21+ which reveals the chipset's name as “lahaina” that's said to be codename for the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. It's quite predictable that Samsung will go for the new flagship chipset for its Galaxy S21 series. It will most likely use the Exynos 2100 chipset as well for other markets including India.
The Galaxy S21 series will feature two more phones in the series, Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Ultra. In addition to a new design, Samsung is also expected to launch the Galaxy S21 Ultra with S Pen support. This would be a first for a Galaxy S series smartphone.
Samsung had been rumoured of launching the new smartphones on January 14, and this was eventually confirmed through its biggest mobile experience store in India.
