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 A13 4G production reportedly started in India, one step closer to launch
Previously, the Samsung Galaxy A13 design has been officially unveiled along with the official images. This is not the first time we have seen this design, but it is the first time it has been influenced by official images. The smartphone also appeared on the Bluetooth SIG, so it received a Bluetooth certificate.
And now, Samsung Galaxy A13 4G smartphone production begins at Greater Noida factory, India. As per the latest info, it comes with a plastic rear panel with a glossy finish and features the same quad-camera setup as seen on the Galaxy A52S 5G.
Going forward, the Samsung Galaxy A13 4G also features a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port and speaker grille at the bottom edge. At the same time, there is a power button and a volume rocker on the right edge.
Galaxy A13 expected specification
If this design seems familiar to you, that is because the Galaxy A12 looks the same as before. The fact is, the rear camera settings look completely different, so the design is not exactly the same.
The Galaxy A13 is rumored to be shipping with the MediaTek Dimension 700 64-bit octa-core SoC. That chip will be paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. A 6.48-inch full HD+ LCD display has also been mentioned.
A 50-megapixel main camera can find a way behind this phone, as well as an 8-megapixel photo shoot. Samsung can install a 5,000mAh battery inside the phone, as well as a 25W charger.

Aside from this, the company confirmed that the Galaxy A03 will be available in three different color shades including Black, Blue and Red. This upcoming budget phone’s body measures 164.2 x 75.9 x 9.1mm, which is quite similar to its predecessor, Galaxy A02.

Samsung to finally drop Galaxy Note line by end of 2021!
Samsung is expected to discontinue production of the ‘Galaxy Note‘ series later this year. It has been confirmed that the Galaxy Note series will be dropped from the 2022 annual smartphone production plan.
After launching an unannounced new product, the company decided to completely withdraw its current models that continued sales. By applying the S Pen to the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 3, the Note experience is consolidated, but it is still in demand to receive demand from Galaxy Note series enthusiasts who have a built-in pen.
According to Korean media ETNews, Samsung decided to discontinue the Galaxy Note lineup by the end of this year. And the company will present the Ultra model of the Galaxy S series as a Note phone as the Galaxy S22 Ultra is rumored to come with a Galaxy Note-like S Pen chamber.
Samsung’s decision to discontinue the Galaxy Note series
Earlier this year Samsung S confirmed the possibility of integrating the Galaxy S21 Ultra lineup by supporting handwriting input. The Galaxy S22 Ultra model, which will be unveiled early next year, is expected to include not only the overall product design but also key features such as the Galaxy Note’s pen storage.
The main reason for Samsung’s decision to discontinue production of the Galaxy Note series is the growing production of foldable smartphones. It can be seen that the decision was made to reduce costs by stabilizing the yield of the foldable product and improving the efficiency of the process so as to replace the major sales in the second half of the year.
