Last week, Samsung released a short video titled Thank you, with which the South Korean giant thanked fans for their support during this challenging time and promised to show something on December 15th. Presumably, we are talking about the Exynos 2100 SoC, which will be used in the Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphones, along with the Snapdragon 888.
In our journey back inside the phone you love, we’ve prepared something small for everyone, especially our fans, who are supporting us and struggling through this tough year. Please stay tuned until December 15th. #ThankYou.
The Exynos 2100 is expected to receive a powerful ARM Cortex-X1 core, as well as three Cortex- and four Cortex-A55 cores. The GPU will be ARM Mali-G78. The SoC must be based on a 5-nanometer process technology.
The well-known network informant under the nickname Ice Universe, who often shares reliable and exclusive information about new products in the mobile industry, today announced on his Twitter page that Samsung should make an announcement related to the Galaxy S21. Perhaps we are talking only about the Exynos 2100; but maybe the manufacturer will show the first official teaser of the Exynos 2100 smartphone.
I have a hunch that Samsung will announce something related to the Galaxy S21

Samsung Galaxy S21 will receive a large and fast fingerprint scanner
The well-known network insider under the nickname Ice Universe, who often shares exclusive information about new products in the mobile industry, has published a series of posts dedicated to an important improvement in the upcoming flagship Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphones.
The good news is that the Samsung Galaxy S21 will have an improved ultrasonic sub-screen fingerprint scanner. This is the first upgrade since the Samsung Galaxy S10.
He recalled that the current ultrasonic sub-screen fingerprint scanner measures 4×9 mm; while the new fingerprint sensor has dimensions of 8 x 8 mm. Fingerprint recognition speed has been doubled, according to the insider. He added that Samsung Galaxy S21 users won’t need to hold their finger on the screen to recognize the fingerprint. A quick touch will be enough.
The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor of Galaxy S21 is 8×8=64mm, which is 1.77 times higher than the previous generation, and the unlocking speed is doubled. You don’t even need to press it, just tap to unlock.😼
