Samsung is all set to launch the upcoming Galaxy S21 series with three smartphones including the Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra. Just recently, we’ve reported about the leaked specs of the entire Galaxy S21 series and now one of the phones of this series spotted on a benchmark site.
According to the latest information, a device of Samsung carrying model number SM-G996U was entered Geekbench that is powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 875 chipset with 8GB of RAM. On the basis of the naming habit of the company, the phone could be named Galaxy S21 Plus.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 875 has not been officially announced yet but the benchmark result shows that the CPU cores are running together with an Adreno 660 GPU. The upcoming SoC is rumored to feature a tri-cluster CPU setup with a single X1 high-performance core, three Cortex-A78 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores.
The results exposed one more thing that could irritate Samsung because the Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S21+ (SM-G996U) got better results than the previously tested Exynos variant.
Geekbench result reveals that the Galaxy S21+ got 1120 points in the single-core performance and 3319 points in multi-core tests. While the previously tested Exynos powered device obtained 1038 points in the single-core performance and 3060 points in multi-core tests.
However, the Exynos benchmark scores are two months older than the latest Snapdragon variant so keep in mind that the final performance results will be changed in the future after the successful optimizations of Samsung’s Exynos SoC.
The benchmark listing also reveals that the upcoming Galaxy S21 series smartphones will come pre-packed Android 11 based One UI 3.1. So it is clear that these devices will receive Android OS support up to Android 14 based One UI 6.

Samsung Galaxy A14 to feature large 5000mAh battery, confirms FCC
Samsung Galaxy A14 is no more a secret. The company is developing this low-cost smartphone and will probably introduce it in the first quarter of 2023. There are many Samsung Galaxy A14 leaks and rumors surfing online and one among them confirms its battery capacity.
Recently, the upcoming Galaxy budget-friendly smartphone appeared on the FCC database, revealing that it will come with a battery capacity similar to its predecessor, Galaxy A13. Samsung Galaxy A14 5G has appeared on FCC with a 5,000mAh battery.
You can judge from the thought that this is the same battery as the old phone, nothing new in it. But considering the pocket-friendly cost of this smartphone, a 5000mAh battery is still impressive. And maybe, the company could improve the battery performance for the upcoming model.
Furthermore, earlier reports also revealed some other key features of the phone. It is suggested to come with a 6.8-inch Full HD+ display complete with a dewdrop notch and fairly sizable bezels on all sides.
It could feature the Exynos 2300, which is yet to be announced. Whereas, the primary camera could be 50MP and the selfie camera could be 13MP.

Is Samsung really offering 25W charging with Galaxy S23 Ultra?
Samsung Galaxy S23 series is coming to compete with every flagship phone of 2023. These Galaxy devices should come with improvements but what I have heard recently is unsatisfying. A few days ago, an information started appearing online that says Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will come with just 25W fast charging capability.
It is very common that before the launch of any new smartphone, it goes through several certification procedures and this happened with the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone as well. The device recently appeared on the FCC certification site, which suggests that it will come with 25W fast charging.
On the side, its predecessor – Galaxy S22 Ultra features a 45W fast charging capacity. What do you think about it? Is it true that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will only feature 25W fast charging? Will the upcoming phone be inferior to its predecessor?
Well, let me inform you that this is not true in any case. Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is going to be a beast with its premium hardware and software functions and it can not come with degrades over the Galaxy S22 Ultra, you will only see improvements.
Samsung usually tests its phones with the same 25W charger, even if the devices have faster-charging powers. The same is the case with the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The Korean company has tested this phone with just a 25W charger on FCC. Whereas, in reality, it supports 45W fast charging.
