Just yesterday we saw some leaked video teasers from the entire Samsung Galaxy S21 series, but rumors don’t stop there. The latest suggests that the new Galaxy S21 will have faster wireless reverse charging, as well as a bigger and faster fingerprint scanner. Now we also have official confirmation of one of the processors in Samsung’s new flagship.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 will be equipped with the Qualcomm SM8350 processor in some markets. This information comes from a recent FCC certification granted to the Samsung SM-G9991U. In other words, the upcoming Galaxy S21 series will feature the latest Snapdragon 888 5G chipset from Qualcomm in the US and South Korea, while other markets will receive Exynos 2100 processors.
Now the good news doesn’t stop there as the certification also shows the device has mmWave 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and faster 9W wireless reverse charging. The device will also be equipped with a 4,000 mAh battery. The certification also mentions a 25W Type-C USB Fast Charger with the model number EP-TA800, although we can’t say if it will be included as previous rumors suggest that Samsung will come with the next Samsung Galaxy S21 series will also omit power adapters and headphones.
According to rumors, the Samsung Galaxy S21 will contain a larger and faster fingerprint scanner. This new rumor comes from a well-known tidbit, Ice Universe, as it believes Samsung will be giving their devices a new fingerprint scanner.
The Galaxy S21’s ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is 8 × 8 = 64mm, which is 1.77 times higher than the previous generation, and the unlocking speed is doubled. You don’t even have to press it, just tap to unlock it

The new sensor under the OLED panel of the Samsung Galaxy S21 consists of square 8 mm sides with 64 mm², which is larger than the current 4×9 mm sensors with 36 mm² sensors. This leads directly to a sensor that is 77 percent larger. We just hope these new sensors are safe and reliable too.
