Comparatively, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ comes with a 4,500mAh battery. Since the Galaxy S21+ would arrive with a higher battery capacity compared to its predecessor, the other devices in the Galaxy S21 series are expected to follow suit. The mentioned 4,660mAh is the nominal capacity. We don’t know the typical capacity yet, but it’s probably around 4,800mAh. The existing Galaxy S20+ phone is rated at 4,370mAh, and 4,500mAh is typical. Therefore, the Galaxy S21+ (or Galaxy S30+) would have around 300mAh more when it launches in early 2021.

Other leaked details of the series
Some reports have indicated that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 series phones will be powered by the company’s new Exynos 1000 chipset. This hardware platform will be manufactured in the new 5nm process. It is also said to be as good as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 chipset, or even better.
Also, other leaks have revealed that the ToF sensor will be scrapped, just like the Galaxy Note20. Similarly, it is said that the device will have a new Qualcomm on-screen fingerprint reader. This is expected to be 17 times larger than the one found in the Galaxy S20, and it will also be much faster.
