Last week, Samsung Galaxy S21 was spotted on the Bureau Of Indian Standards (BIS) certification and now the Galaxy S21+ thereby hinting towards an imminent launch. Past leaks surrounding the Galaxy S21 series suggest that it could go official in January 2021. The Galaxy S21+ appears in the BIS listing carrying model number SM-G996B/DS, where DS denotes the support for dual-sim.
The Samsung Galaxy S21+ is said to be a middle child in the lineup, sitting between vanilla Galaxy S21 and the top-end Galaxy S21 Ultra. In the past, we saw CAD renders of the device which confirms a triple camera setup on the back and a single punch-hole selfie camera. The Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ are said to have the same design whereas the Ultra variant may feature additional camera sensors.
A report from Android Police reveals that the Galaxy S21+ may sport a 6.7-inch FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It is expected to arrive in two chipset variants (Snapdragon 875 and Exynos 2100) depending on the market. The handset will run Android 11 based Samsung’s One UI 3.1 custom skin.
The triple camera setup on the back includes a 12MP main sensor, a 12MP ultrawide, and a 64MP zoom camera. It is said to house a 4,800mAh battery with scope for fast charging. The connectivity feature may include Wi-Fi 6, 5G, Bluetooth 5.1, and NFC.
