What you need to know

  • JerryRigEverything takes apart a Galaxy S21 Ultra, showing its internals.
  • The optical in-display fingerprint sensor is much larger than on previous units.
  • Unfortunately, the selfie camera stopped working after the device was put back together.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphones will be available starting tomorrow, but before you get your hands on one, JerryRigEverything has taken it upon himself to give us a look at what you're paying for. His latest teardown video, which was posted today, takes the cream-of-the-crop Galaxy S21 Ultra and dismantles, which is something we definitely don't recommend for the average user.

One of the main takeaways from the teardown is the larger ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, which Samsung claims is 77% larger than on the Galaxy S20. You can even see the size difference between the sensors in the video, which is dramatically increased and more efficiently designed. Hayato Huseman was impressed with the in-display sensor in his Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra review, noting that it was "much faster and easier to use". Hopefully, this points to an ever-increasing size for in-display fingerprint sensors, which could one day take up a large portion of a smartphone display.

Fixing the FCC after a former Verizon lawyer and lobbyist ran it for years isn't going to be easy. But Jessica Rosenworcel has some ideas, and so far I like what I hear.
