The Galaxy S21 series hasn’t been made official yet, but its design and specifications have been leaked already. The Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be launched in Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 variants, and everyone is excited to see how those processors perform against each other and against Apple’s A14 Bionic chipset. Now, the performance of the Galaxy S21+ has been compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max in a new video.
In the performance comparison video, the Galaxy S21+ and the iPhone 12 Pro Max are seen running the AnTuTu benchmark and how many points they received in the test. The Galaxy S21+ seems to have scored 634,461 points in the benchmark, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max scored 441,227 points. The Galaxy S21+ managed to beat the highest-end iPhone 12 in the test. However, as we all know, benchmarks don’t tell the whole story, and real-world performance is often different from the benchmarks.
It should be noted that this version of the Galaxy S21+ (SM-G996U) uses the Snapdragon 888 processor and not the Exynos 2100 that will be used in markets outside of China and the US. You can see the benchmark performance comparison video below.

The Galaxy S21+ is expected to sport a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

It will reportedly feature a 10MP selfie camera and a 12MP+12MP+64MP triple rear-facing camera setup.
The phone will be powered by a 4,800mAh battery. Other features such as a bigger in-display fingerprint reader, IP68 certification, Samsung Pay, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, UWB, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, stereo speakers, fast wired and wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging are also expected to be present.
