Aside from the fact that the Galaxy S21 series will ship without earphones or a wall charger, teaser videos for the Galaxy S21 series have surface, and they basically confirm the unique camera module layout that was revealed in renders.
Now for the bad news: both the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ will stick to a triple rear camera setup, a flat AMOLED display, and a glasstic back just like the Galaxy Note 20.
The camera bump will hold the same camera setup as with the Galaxy S20 series: 12-megapixel main camera, 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and 64-megapixel telephoto camera. Basically, the difference between the vanilla and the Plus model is with the screen size and battery capacity–the Galaxy S21 will get a 6.2-inch panel, while the Galaxy S21+ will get as 6.5-inch panel.
Things become different when it comes with the Galaxy S21 Ultra, where you get a 6.8-inch curved AMOLED display, a glass back, and a quad-rear camera setup. while the teaser video reveals a penta-rear camera setup, one of them is actually a laser autofocus sensor–a necessary feature in order to improve autofocus speeds with its 108-megapixel ISOCELL HM3 main camera.
As Ice Universe explained, the other three cameras of the Galaxy S21 Ultra include a 12-megapixel IMX563 ultra-wide-angle camera, a 10-megapixel short telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom, and a 10-megapixel periscope camera with 10x optical zoom. All three cameras will have Dual PD autofocus, while the 108-megapixel main camera will have a new Nona Super-PD autofocus system.
According to recent rumors, the Galaxy S21 series is expected to debut on January 14, and will become available in stores on January 29.
