Samsung has obtained new information on the technical characteristics of the sensors on board the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 +. They are likely to disappoint a lot of people.
Samsung will present next week the new flagship of its mobile fleet, the Galaxy S21. In all and like last year, three models should be presented: the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra.
It is the first two that we are currently discussing. Evan Blass has indeed obtained information about their photo modules.

At the front, therefore, we should find a front camera of 10 million pixels coupled with an optics opening at f / 2.2.
The rear should be a bit fuller. The module would in fact combine three sensors and three optics. The main sensor would reach 12 million pixels and it would be associated with a wide angle opening at f / 1.8. The secondary sensor would offer the same definition, this time with an ultra wide angle opening at f / 2.2.
The third sensor would go further. It would reach 64 million pixels with an optics opening at f / 2.0.
The offer would therefore be identical to that of last year, at least on these two models. There would indeed be no differences in definition.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra, for its part, would be a little more generous, and this at the level of the two modules. The front camera would indeed reach 40 million pixels with an optics opening at f / 2.2.

But above all, at the rear, we would find no less than five sensors.
The main sensor would reach 108 million pixels and it would be associated with a wide angle opening at f / 1.8. Then, it would be necessary to count on a sensor of 12 million pixels associated with an ultra wide angle opening at f / 2.2. Then, then, two sensors of 10 million pixels with telephoto lenses each time. The focal range should be different from one lens to another and the aperture would reach f / 4.9 on one side and f / 2.4 on the other. Finally, it would take a laser autofocus for ultra fast focusing.
In parallel, Samsung has also started its teasing around its new range, with a focus placed on the photo. In the first video, we see a transparent phone shooting a surfer taking a wave. The focus seems instantaneous and we also notice that we are close to the subject. Here, Samsung seems to want to highlight the zooms of the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
The second video simply shows a sensor in the shape of the Galaxy S21s spinning around.
It will be recalled for the form that the Galaxy S21 will be presented on January 14 .
