WinFuture website has published official photos of the Samsung Galaxy S21 and Samsung Galaxy S21 + smartphones in different colors, and this time we can see the new smartphones from the back and from the side.
We will remind, earlier this week, the reliable insider Evan Blass shared the first official press renders of the standard version of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphone, and then we were shown only the front of the smartphone.
The side view of the smartphone looks a little strange, but everything becomes clear if you look at the updated rear camera unit, which is a continuation and part of the body itself, if you look at the smartphone from the side. When viewed from the back, it seems that the camera unit, as we said earlier, floats to the top and left of the body.
The S21 and S21 + have flat screens; and only the S21 Ultra will have a curved display, which should also get stylus support.
The official announcement of smartphones is expected on January 14th.
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 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 is two times faster, according to the insider. He added that Samsung 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.😼

The standard version of the S21 with the model number SM-G991U has appeared in the database of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Also, the certification confirmed that the smartphone supports 25W wired charging; and the S21 also supports wireless reverse charging of other gadgets at 9W.
Even though Samsung may not equip the Galaxy S21 smartphones with a charger and headphones, but for the top model – Galaxy S21 Ultra – a completely new accessory will be available: the S Pen. This confirms previous news of canceling the Galaxy Note 21 series.
