All eyes on the store shelves of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series can now go back to the company’s next big flag: the Galaxy S21. Following past releases we usually expected a new Galaxy S device to be unveiled in February or March and a new leak of a key component suggests that the company is on the right track.
As marked by MyfixGuide, two new batteries have achieved 3C certification and these cells aim to live inside the Samsung Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus.
At a glance the list says nothing of Samsung, let alone the S21, the model number has a big sign. The rumored model numbers for the Samsung Galaxy S21 are the G991, the SS21 Plus the G996 – and both are included in the battery codes for the EB-BG996ABY and EB-BG991ABY, respectively.
What does the certificate tell us? The S21’s battery is listed as 3,880 mAh cell, while the S21 Plus got 4,660 mAh units. The funny thing is that the S21 Plus on the S-20 Plus is getting 120 mAh less than the S21 while achieving an additional 160 mAh.
In our web surfing battery test, the Galaxy S20 Plus’ 4,500 mAh battery was fixed at 120Hz for 10 hours and 31 minutes, and the screen iPhone 11 Pro lasted a maximum of 11:54 at 8:55 and 60 Hz. So increasing capacity should help Galaxy S21 Plus.
In the case of the regular Galaxy S21, the surprising thing is that the phone is reported to have got a smaller battery and this indicates that the dimensions may be different. Maybe the S21 will get thinner, will it take a smaller display or both? The iPhone 12 is starting with a 5.4-inch model, so perhaps Samsung is preparing for a more direct rival. Today’s Galaxy S20 has a 6.2-inch screen.
Seriously, all of the batteries mentioned above have overtaken the rumor mill of the upcoming iPhone 12 family, with the 6.4-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max’s 5.4-inch iPhone 12 ranging from 3,687 mAh forecast to 2,227 mAh.
However, it’s worth noting that iPhones always had smaller batteries than Android parts. Plus, due to the power Apple A14 bionic chip is built using the upcoming iPhone 12 family 5nm process, and as a result could be 30% more efficient.
In other words, despite the apparent numerical advantage of the S21 Plus, it remains someone’s game in battery life.
Other possible Galaxy S21 upgrades include a really full screen design with a hidden under-display camera to go against the iPhone 12’s A14 Bionic, a fully 150MP camera (for at least one model) and a new 5nm Snapdragon 875 processor.
