Hands-On Video Compares Unreleased Samsung Galaxy S21+ With iPhone 12 Pro

Samsung's Galaxy S21 smartphone lineup is set to be released in 2021, and a new video shared on YouTube compares an alleged Samsung Galaxy S21+ with an iPhone 12 Pro.


The back of the iPhone 12 Pro features precision-milled matte glass, while the back of the alleged Galaxy S21+ seems to be constructed from a plastic-like material. Additionally, the three distinct cameras of the Galaxy S21+ appear to be arranged vertically, whereas the cameras of the iPhone 12 Pro are arranged in a triangular-shaped array. The individual cameras themselves look to be approximately the same size in both smartphones.

On the front of the Galaxy S21+, the bezels seem to have decreased in size. Similar to the current Galaxy S20 lineup, the smartphone appears to maintain the current hole-punch selfie camera centered in the top portion of the display.

Another difference between the two smartphones will be their respective chips, as Apple has fitted the latest iPhone 12 models with its own A14 Bionic chip. Samsung is rumored to use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100 chips in its new smartphones depending on the region, according to PhoneArena.

When first announced that the iPhone 12 lineup and other iPhone models wouldn't ship with a power adapter and headphones, Samsung mocked Apple on its social channels by pointing out that the Samsung Galaxy smartphones continue to ship with a power adapter. However, recent reports have said that Samsung may too remove the power adapter and headphones from its smartphones beginning with the Galaxy S21 lineup.

Can't fit FaceID sensors in anything like a punch-hole camera though. There's no way. Apple would have to ditch their TrueDepth camera.

I ignore the notch. It's grown on me and I never notice it during use. At least I don't have a random black hole in my screen though. God damn those punch-hole cameras are hideous.

Nothing screams “we gave up trying to copy FaceID” more than a selfie hole-punch camera.

Rather have a notch and FaceID than a punch hole design. Security over convenience for me.

I personally hate the trend of more narrow but longer android phones. Reason enough for me not to consider it.
