Motorola’s latest budget offering is the Moto E7 that offers a 48MP camera for €119.99

A couple of months ago, Motorola launched a budget smartphone called the Moto E7 Plus. Today, the company has lifted the covers from Moto E7, a toned-down iteration that packs a weaker MediaTek processor, fewer megapixels on the front camera, a smaller battery, and as expected, a lighter price tag. The Moto E7 starts at €119.99 and will be sold in European markets, while a few Latin American, Middle-East and Asian countries will also get it in the coming weeks. 

The Moto E7’s design is quite familiar as it borrows heavily from its pricier sibling, but it is claimed to be water-repellant. The fingerprint sensor is at the back, and there is also a dedicated button for summoning the Google Assistant. Over at the front, you’ll find a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a notch at the top and fairly thick bezels at the bottom. 

Moto E7

The octa-core MediaTek Helio G25 processor keeps things running, in tandem with 2 gigs of RAM and up to 64GB of onboard storage which can be expanded by another 512GB using a microSD card. A 4,000mAh battery provides the juice, while Android 10 handles things on the software. The UI is almost stock Android, but it is disappointing to see that the device doesn’t run Android 11 out-of-the-box.

In the camera department, the latest budget offering from Motorola packs a 48MP primary snapper and a 2MP macro camera, while selfies are handled by a 5MP shooter. There are not many fancy camera features to play, but there is a dedicated night mode and the nifty Google Lens integration in the main camera app.

Moto G 5G, Moto G9 Power could be launched in India soon

Motorola is tipped to be prepping for the launch of two new smartphones in India. It could soon unveil the Moto G 5G and Moto G9 Power in the Indian market. For the unaware, the two phones were launched in the European market earlier this month and at the time, Motorola did not share details about Indian availability for either. However, it announced that the Moto G 5G will be coming to India, Latin America, Middle East, and Asia in the coming weeks. While the company hasn’t revealed official details about the two phone launches, a tipster claims that they could be launched soon.

The rumour comes from noted tipster Mukul Sharma, who tweeted that Moto G 5G and Moto G9 Power will be launched in India soon. The tweet does not mention an exact launch date, but in one of the replies the tipster wrote that Motorola won’t be launching these phones this month. This means, the two upcoming phones are likely to launch in India in the month of November.

The Moto G 5G is priced at EUR 299.99 for the sole 4GB + 64GB storage model, while the Moto G9 Power costs EUR 199 for the single 4GB + 128GB storage model. Both phones run Android 10.

Snapchat ‘Spotlight’ is yet another TikTok rival

And let’s be honest, Snapchat may be my least favorite service ever, but it’s probably the most copied service we’ve ever seen as. Look at Instagram stories, Whatsapp, Facebook, and even Twitter now with Fleets. Well, it looks like now they’re doing it to someone else. The company just launched a new feature called “Spotlight” which is basically made to compete with TikTok and Instagram’s “Reels” but, Snapchat’s got a trick up their sleeve. So, Spotlight let’s users showcase their 60 second videos which are focused on memes and jokes rather than your day to day life like stories where meant to. For the viewer, it will pretty much work like TikTok where the algorithm shows you content related to what you’ve seen in the past. The thing about it is that Snapchat will be paying creators to post on the platform, they will award $1M between the most popular creators on the app per day through the end of this year so, if you have a viral video you might get a piece of the $1M. Spotlight is currently launching to 11 countries so, if that’s your thing go check it out. Let’s hope this algorythm finally fixes their lack of good discovery.

New M1 MacBook Air has been found with 128GB for just $799

Let’s move on to Apple Silicon Macs as yes, Apple did end up making at least one of them more affordable, but there’s a catch. The latest M1 MacBook Air was spotted in Apple’s US Education Institute Hardware and Software list and it’s actually cheaper. This was found on Reddit and this is the regular 8-core CPU and 7-core GPU MacBook Air, with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM for $799. The thing about it is that, this is strictly for education purposes so, if you work or study at a school that purchases these then you might get your hands on one but, it looks like that might be the only way. This is not a variant that consumers can buy in a store. And on another note, Craig Federighi, aka Mr Wiggle Mode himself, went on an interview and talked about M1 Macs running windows. Please stop trying to run Parallels on them. He claims that Windows could run on these Macs but it’s really up to Microsoft. Thing is since this version of Windows on ARM is emulated, who knows if that will happen. Can any of you imagine Windows running on these ARM chips like a champ?

iPad Pro to get OLED displays after adopting mini-LED in early 2021: Report

And since we’re talking Apple, let’s discuss their future plans for iPads, especially when it comes to the display technology they’re using. We’ve been covering rumors of miniLED iPads for years, but now according to a new report from The Elec, Cupertino is finally planning to adopt OLED displays for the iPad Pro line up. It seems there will be a wait, though, as we know that Apple is working on the transition to miniLED displays for Q1 of next year. The report claims that OLED displays on these will actualy happen shortly after, meaning also within 2021. These displays would be provided by Samsung but, it also says that the adoption of OLED could be delayed, depending on the scale of adoption of miniLED. Again, these miniLED displays are slated for Q1 while OLEDs should come later. This means that Apple might really just upgrade their current LCDs to miniLED and then eventually move on to OLED at least when it comes to iPads because, we know that miniLEDs should be a huge thing for Macs. Whatever the case may be, this might be what will differentiate the next generation of iPads and Macs in 2021, and let’s hope that enables new designs.

OnePlus 9 might sport two 48MP camera sensors

OnePlus 9 Pro leak gives us our first look at its design prior to a March 2021 debut

Now how about if we shift focus to Android and particularly the OnePlus 9 as, we’re expecting this phone to launch a little earlier than usual so the rumors are starting to intensify. Beginning with the regular variant, last week we got some CAD renders for it showing a new white color variant and a triple camera array. Now, we have a new leak from 91Mobiles that claims that the two main cameras from these renders are two 48MP sensors. This means we’ll get a 48MP primary that delivers 12MP images, as well as a 48MP ultra wide. The third and smaller lens would be a macro or monochrome sensor in typical OnePlus fashion. Now, moving on to the Pro variant, we have some new CAD renders from OnLeaks showing off the design changes. From these we can see some smaller bezels, a “Pacific Blue” colorway if you know what I mean, and the new camera array which is pretty similar to the one on the 8T. The 9 Pro is expected to bring a 6.7in display, probably running at up to 144Hz and it will be powered by the Snapdragon 875, or whatever the latest Qualcomm chip will be called. We’ll keep you posted as it’s expected to come some time in March, and I seriously wonder what is it with companies wanting to launch phones earlier next year.

Story of the day:

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 might launch sooner than expected

And finally the hottest news today have to do with Samsung, and how the company plans to re-imagine their approach to flagships in 2021. We’ve covered the possibility of the Galaxy Note lineup saying goodbye, and today we get more credible information that goes beyond not seeing it in a listing. According to a new report from Korea, we might be getting this phone earlier the Galaxy Z Fold 3 earlier in 2021. The report suggests that Samsung is already working on this phone and it could possibly launch in June 2021. The report also mentions that this foldable could have support for the S-Pen like we’ve heard before. It also reiterates on the report we covered last week, that claims that we’re getting an under the display selfie shooter, even if we were expecting that until Q3. It also adds that Sammy was able to add an in-screen WACOM digitizer but, they still faced some difficulties with the protective layer which scratches with the S Pen but it’s sounding like they were able to fix it, maybe thanks to the new UTG we’re expecting. With all of the reports on the missing Galaxy Note 21, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra supporting an S Pen, it looks like Samsung is about to re-invent it’s approach to its second batch of product launches.

Samsung Galaxy S21 has received BIS certification

November is almost over, meaning that we are getting closer to the end of 2020. This also means that we are getting closer to the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy S21 series. Samsung’s new flagship is rumored to become official in less than two months, and it seems that the company has started to get the necessary certifications ready for the possible launch on January 14.

The new Samsung Galaxy S21 has recently been certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in India. This certification makes us believe that Samsung may be getting ready for an early launch of its new Galaxy S lineup.

The certification doesn’t give us details about the phone’s internals or an idea of how many devices we’re getting since only the regular Samsung Galaxy S21 has appeared on the bureau’s database. However, it is believed that just like this year, we will initially get three devices, a Galaxy s21, a Galaxy S21+, and a Galaxy S21 Ultra. The new devices are also expected to arrive powered by two different processors, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 for the US version and an Exynos 2100 for the international version.

We have also been receiving quite a bunch of Galaxy S21 leaks and rumors in the last few days. Some of them have confirmed the design of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, which is also expected to feature stylus support, which would also end up leading to the possible demise of the Samsung Galaxy Note series.

A massive spec leak has recently revealed the new lineup’s display sizes, battery sizes, sensors inside each camera setup, color options for every variant, and more. We have also received word that this time, you should look for the Exynos version of the Galaxy S21, as Samsung’s processor could finally more powerful than its Snapdragon counterpart.

POCO M3 key specs revealed, price tipped ahead of launch

POCO is all set to unveil its next smartphone, the POCO M3 tomorrow, November 24. Ahead of the launch, the company has revealed key specifications of the upcoming device. It has teased the display size, processor, and battery capacity. Further, the POCO M3 is reported to offer a refreshing design and sport a triple rear camera setup. It could come with a waterdrop-style notch upfront. It is tipped to come in a dual-tone finish on the back panel.

The latest development comes from a series of tweets confirming key specifications of the POCO M3 that have been released by POCO’s global Twitter account. The tweets confirm that POCO M3 will offer a  6.53-inch display. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC, and pack a 6,000mAh battery. Further, the company has also released a video teaser that reveals the design of the upcoming phone. It is identical to the one that was leaked a few days ago.

The POCO M3 will sport a dual-palette design. It will have about one-third of its rear panel covered by a black rectangle in the top portion filled with the camera setup and the company logo. As for the camera module, it will house three cameras. It is rumored to have a 48MP primary camera. The logo, on the other hand, sits parallel to the camera module on the other side. The rest of the rear panel seems to be textured and is seen featuring sport blue or black finishes.

Motorola is prepping a high-end phone with Snapdragon 865 codenamed ‘Nio’

Motorola made a return to the Android flagship arena by launching a no-compromises device called the Motorola Edge+. The device was an appealing package with top-of-the-notch specs and a sleek design. However, sub-par cameras, a not-so-competitive asking price, and white-hot competition kept it from really making a dent in the segment. But the company is far from giving up. As per new rumors, the company is preparing to launch a new flagship device codenamed ‘Nio’.

As per information received by TechnikNews, the company is reportedly working on a device powered by the Snapdragon 865 and it will likely arrive next year. It will be among the first wave of new Motorola smartphones that will debut running Android 11. The processor of choice is a bit confusing, as Qualcomm is just over a week away from launching a successor that will likely debut carrying the name Snapdragon 875. As for the device itself, it carries the model number XT2125 and will reportedly debut in Q1 2021. 

90Hz display, triple rear cameras and Android 11 on software side

The Snapdragon 865 chip at the heart of Motorola’s new flagship will be paired with 8 gigs of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Over at the front, there will be a 90Hz display with full-HD+ (2520 x 1080 pixels) resolution, but the size of the panel is not known yet. Also, it is unclear if the company will carry forward the curved screen aesthetics of the Motorola Edge series, or if it will rely on a flat display for the upcoming ‘Nio’ device. 

Coming to the imaging department, Motorola will reportedly equip its next high-end smartphone with the 64MP OmniVision OV64B sensor. The wide-angle camera uses the 16MP ov16a10 sensor which is again supplied by OmniVision. There is also a 2MP depth camera that relies on the OV02PB OmniVision sensor. There are two selfie cameras on the front, sitting in what is likely going to be a hole-punch cut-out. The main camera uses the 16MP OV16A1Q sensor, and is assisted by an 8MP secondary camera that uses Samsung’s S5K4H7 sensor.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 might launch sooner than expected

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 has been one of the hottest devices in the rumor mill lately. From S-Pen support to under-display selfie camera, we’ve heard it all for the upcoming foldable. It is said to replace the Galaxy Note lineup. Hence, we were expecting it to launch in late 2021. However, the latest report suggests otherwise. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is tipped to launch as early as June next year.

The latest development comes from a report by the Korean publication, Aju News. It suggests that Samsung is working on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and it could be launched in June 2021. The report goes on to say that Samsung has started developing its final samples for mass production. Further, it says that the upcoming foldable could have support for S-Pen, a rumor which we’ve heard before. Moreover, it reiterates the report that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 could come with an under-display selfie camera. According to the report, Samsung Electronics and Samsung Display will be using a technology that allows light to pass through the gap between pixels to take photos.

The report goes on to add that Samsung was able to incorporate an in-screen digitizer in the upcoming Galaxy Fold series phone. However, it faced difficulties in developing a screen protective layer that prevents scratches from when the S Pen and the screen come in contact. That’s the reason why Samsung didn’t give support for its stylus to the first two generations of Galaxy Fold. Reportedly, the second-generation ultra-thin glass made it possible for the company to fit the S Pen in the third-gen Galaxy Z Fold.

Goodbye, Note?

We’ve previously reported that Samsung could bid-adieu to the Galaxy Note series, and the latest report builds on that rumor. It states that Samsung will discontinue the Note series as it is bringing S Pen support to its Galaxy S flagship phones and the rumored Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.

OnePlus 9 Pro leak gives us our first look at its design prior to a March 2021 debut

OnePlus didn’t launch a mid-cycle refresh for the OnePlus 8 Pro – tentatively called the OnePlus 9 Pro – this year, and only gave that treatment to the OnePlus 8 by launching the OnePlus 8T. Needless to say, the excitement surrounding the OnePlus 9 Pro is quite high due to the strategic delay, especially regarding the upgrades it will bring to the table. However, we may already have our first detailed look at the OnePlus 9 Pro’s design.

Leakster Steve. H aka @OnLeaks (via Voice) has shared a few detailed renders of what he claims to the OnePlus 9 Pro. Starting with the build, the upcoming OnePlus device will feature a glass rear panel and a redesigned camera module that shares some similarity with the one we saw on the OnePlus 8T. The camera isle has a contrasting glossy finish compared to the rest of the rear panel which appears to rock a frosted matte glass finish.

Talking about the cameras, the tipster has not shared any specific details such as megapixel count or the role of each snapper. However, two of the lenses are disproportionately larger compared to the rest of the two cameras. Coming to the display, the OnePlus 9 Pro is retaining the curved screen aesthetics for another year. And if its predecessor – the OnePlus 8 Pro – is anything to go by, the OnePlus 8 Pro will also feature a 120Hz (or even higher) refresh rate display. The single selfie camera is positioned in the top-left corner of the display.

The device will pack four rear cameras and a 6.7-inch display (Image: Steve Hemmerstoffer / Voice)

The OnePlus 9 Pro’s display will reportedly measure 6.7-inch, but other details such as resolution and brightness output are still a mystery. If one were to take a wild guess, the upcoming OnePlus flagship will come equipped with Qualcomm’s next flagship chipset – rumored to debut as Snapdragon 875 – paired with plenty of RAM and fast UFS storage. As for the launch timeline, the leakster mentions that the OnePlus 9 Pro will debut in March next year.

OnePlus 9 might sport two 48MP camera sensors

OnePlus 9 is reportedly launching earlier than usual, and the detailed specifications have started coming in the form of leaks. The latest one reveals its camera setup. After the leaked CAD renders the new report reiterates that the upcoming phone will come equipped with a triple rear camera setup that is accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash. While two camera lenses seem to be of the same size, the third one smaller than usual.

The latest development comes from 91mobiles, which reports that the OnePlus 9 will have two 48MP cameras on the back. The triple rear camera setup will be lead by a 48MP primary sensor that is said to deliver images of 12MP (4,000 x 3,000 pixels) output and have a 6mm focal length. In comparison, the OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8T both have focal lengths of 6.59mm and 4.74mm, respectively. 

Moreover, the report goes on to say that the primary sensor will not be the Sony IMX 586. Instead, it could be the Sony IMX 689 sensor, but the source isn’t sure of it yet. The primary camera will be backed by a 48MP ultra-wide-angle sensor, which is an upgrade from the 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens found on the OnePlus 8T. Further, there is no information on the third sensor. It could be a macro lens or a monochrome sensor.

The OnePlus 9 is tipped to feature a 6.55-inch display with support for a 120Hz refresh rate as opposed to the rumored 144Hz panel. OnePlus is said to launch its next series in March 2021. We expect the phone to be powered by the Snapdragon 875 SoC, and have support for 65W fast charging technology.

The budget OnePlus Nord N100 has a ‘high refresh rate’ surprise

Now let’s talk about OnePlus as the company has been in the spotlight quite a bit given all the product launches they’ve done this year. A few weeks ago, OnePlus unveiled two new budget smartphones, the Nord N10 5G and the N100. We’ll be focusing on the N100 for this segment because, this is supposed to be the cheaper and watered down one out of the pair but it looks like there was some hidden premium features in here. So to recap, it packs a punch hole HD+ display, the Snapdragon 460 SoC, a 5,000 mAh battery and a triple camera array with a 12MP main sensor. All of this for around $237, remember that price. Well, now that it’s out, the guys over at Android Authority discovered that the N100 actually packs a 90Hz refresh rate display. OnePlus didn’t specify on this so everyone just assumed it was a regular 60Hz panel which is good for that $200 price tag. So yeah, if you got this phone, make sure to turn that feature on as that 5,000 mAh battery should do a good job handling it.

New iPhone 12 display issues have caught Apple’s attention

If you’ve been watching us for the past year, you probably know that my display on my iPhone 11 Pro simply died on me after getting a weird tint. Well, it looks like the iPhone 12 might be going down that same path. Last weekend, some users started reporting issues with the 12 mini’s Lock Screen sensitivity, and iPhone 12 Pro users were having problems with the message app but, the most notable problems were display issues. Apparently some users were getting a green tint on the screen and some flickering but it looks like Apple noticed. The guys over at MacRumors recovered an internal document where Cupertino addresses this issue, saying that they are aware of the customer reports related to the problem and they’re actively investigating, telling technicians to avoid servicing these types of issues because there is no real fix at the moment but they should advice customers to update their phones. Back with the 11, Apple fixed it with iOS 13.6.1 so, let’s see when we get a fix, we’ll keep you posted. Thing is, my problem wasn’t fixed with a software update. The entire phone had to be replaced, so we’ll see.

Apple’s next mobile chip might rely on 5nm+ process, 4nm silicon likely arrives in 2022

Let’s keep talking about Apple but, this time about there chips, as let’s face it, Apple Silicon still has many of us in disbelief. We know that the A14 Bionic was the first chip in the market to bring a 5nm process, thanks to TSMC but, it looks like they’re already pushing smaller nodes. According to a TrendForce research note, Apple plans to use TSMC’s next generation “5nm+” process for the A15 chip that will come in the 2021 iPhones. TSMC’s website says that this 5nm+ process, refers to N5P which is a “performance-enhanced” version of their current 5nm process, which will deliver additional power efficiency and performance improvements. The report even goes further head to 2022, and they believe that the A16 will be built on a 4nm process, which paves the way for even more performance, power efficiency, and density improvements. This also hints that we might get these improvements in Apple Silicon chips, maybe with the M1X, M2 or whatever that thing is going to be called. Thing is, guys with that M1 mopping the floor with absolutely every Intel Mac we’ve compared on generation 1, can you imagine what gen 2 will be. We’ve never EVER recommended a first generation Apple Product, but this is the first exception.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra leaked renders show shows some seriously slim bezels

And I know, we’re still one segment away but let’s begin with the hottest news today which have to do with Samsung. Yeah, they’re so many we had to split them in two. First off, Ice Universe just went on a tweeting spree giving us a ton of new information on the upcoming Galaxy S Line. He started off by posting some new CAD renders of the S21 Ultra which shows us the new chin and side bezels which.. Let’s just say you won’t be able to tell a difference if you have an S20 Ultra. However, he does say that this will be the narrowest chin in mobile phone in history which is something Samsung has been perfecting over the years. Other than that the CAD renders show the USB-C port as well as the display’s footprint. Moving on from that he also posted some case molds where you can see the camera module for the S21 or the S21+, sadly you can only see the display side for the other 2. Finally he also said that the S21 Ultra’s screen will refresh multiple records, I’m not sure if that means we’ll be getting something like ProMotion or if it will just be a record-breaking display. Whatever the case may be, I’m already pretty excited for whatever this S21 Ultra is going to be.

Story of the day:

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 could have an under-display selfie camera

But, finally let’s move on to the other segment of the hottest news as we have more Samsung products and apparently, Samsung is bringing the heat until later in the year. Last month there was some rumors roaming around that claimed that Samsung would be introducing their first under-the-display camera with the Z Fold 3. Well, now there’s a new ETNews report that backs those rumors. According to an industry insider, Samsung Display has developed a new display that will support this UDC. Apparently they made the gap between pixels wider, to allow light to pass through and this will only be a thing in the selfie camera area, the rest of the display will be the same. That along with some special algorithms will correct images, as light is obviously refracted by the OLED Display to allow for the camera to work. This camera module will be supplied by LSI and apparently the technology won’t be ready by the Spring or early in the year, which is when we get the S Line or the Z Flip. So, we will reportedly get it with the Z Fold 3 in the third quarter of the year because, all of the rumors point to the Galaxy Note line disappearing. A new Ice Universe tweet also gives us backs this by saying the Z Fold 3 will bring a lot of innovating technologies, including this Camera Under the Panel, the S Pen and the second-gen UTG.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 could have an under-display selfie camera

It seems that we may finally get an under-display camera in one of Samsung’s flagship. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 may be the company’s first device to get rid of the punch-hole displays, without the need for notches or pop-up selfie cameras to give us more screen real state. However, rumors don’t stop there, as we may be getting a third device in the Z Fold line this year.

We have been getting tons of rumors concerning the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. It is believed that this new device will finally be able to support stylus input, thanks to some changes in its S Pen’s base technology. However, the latest rumor suggests that Samsung is ready to include an under-display camera in its new foldable.

Reports claim that Samsung Display is already making the panel that’s needed for the under-display camera, and Samsung’s System LSI division would produce this camera sensor. Now, things don’t stop there, as Samsung also has to figure out how to improve the quality of the images and videos captured by this camera with the development of an image correction algorithm.

 

We could say that we have already received confirmation of some of the upcoming goodies in the Samsung Galaxy Z fold 3, as Ice Universe has already posted that the Z Fold 3 will bring a lot of innovative technologies.

And since we’re mentioning Ice Universe, he has also claimed that we will get three different devices in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold line this year. A less expensive Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Lite, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 with S Pen support and a new under-display camera, and a new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold S, which could include a sliding display.

Now, rumors claim that the Samsung Galaxy Note series will disappear, and this may be because the Samsung Galaxy S21 may include stylus support. However, Ice Universe believes that if the Galaxy Note series is to be replaced, the best option would be to replace it with the new Galaxy Z Fold S.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra leaked renders show shows some seriously slim bezels

Earlier this month, alleged renders of Samsung’s next flagship – tentatively called the Galaxy S21 Ultra – surfaced online followed by a 360-degree video, giving us a glimpse of its massively redesigned rear panel and a different camera lens arrangement. Other rumors floating around in the leak arena suggest that while the rear panel has been redesigned, the look from the front remains the same as its predecessor. However, a fresh leak now suggests that Samsung will make at least one small but fairly noticeable change to the front facade too, and it has something to do with the chin (or the bottom bezel) of the device.

Famed tipster IceUniverse has tweeted images of what is claimed to be CAD-based renders of the Galaxy S21 Ultra. From the leaked images, it appears that the chin (or bottom bezel) will be as small as the side bezels, which essentially means a more pleasing uniform look similar to the iPhone 12 range. But unlike the Apple offerings which have a huge notch at the top, Samsung will reportedly opt for a way less intrusive hole-punch in accordance with the Infinity-O design language.

So essentially, you’re looking at a familiar Galaxy S20 series design, but with way slimmer and uniformly thin bezels on all sides for the Galaxy S21 Ultra. The leakster goes on to claim that the Galaxy S21 will rock ‘the narrowest chin in mobile phone history’, which might be a big deal for potential buyers who are a fan of uniform aesthetics and value these subtle design changes. However, it is unclear if the same design language will appear on the rest of the Galaxy S21 series members.

Talking about the Galaxy S21 series, the leakster has also shared images depicting the metal-molded cast models of the Galaxy S21 series, which is likely going to have three core members (likely the vanilla Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra) that will debut early next year. However, a Galaxy S21 Fan Edition will make its way to the market later in 2021, something Samsung promised back when the Galaxy S20 FE made its debut a few months ago.

Lastly, in another tweet, the tipster also hinted that the Galaxy S21 series might use a record-setting high refresh rate display. We already have smartphones such as Xiaomi’s Mi 10 Ultra that rock a 144Hz display, so it would be interesting to see Samsung top that and pull off something genuinely outrageous when it comes to winning the specs war. However, leaked rumors suggest that the Galaxy S21 Ultra will pack a 2K display with a 120Hz refresh rate.
