But who knows, maybe Samsung found a way to make voice unlock more secure than previous algorithms, but I wouldn't hold my breath. According to a new report, the Galaxy S21 series will come with the Bixby Voice feature. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the feature is also available on other Samsung phones updated with One UI 3.1. This is because anyone can record your voice to unlock the device. Samsung plans to launch three smartphones in the Galaxy S21 series- Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra. Samsung has been trying to keep Bixby alive and useful in its phones for quite some and the new voice unlock may offer Bixby another chance. "We're told One UI 3.1 will let you select Bixby voice unlock from the phone's lock screen security settings, though the exact details of how it will work are unclear at this time", SamMobile added.


Samsung Galaxy S21 case renders have surfaced online, offering a glimpse into the possible design of the smartphone's rear camera module.


As SamMobile notes, Samsung did previously allow users to use Bixby to wake up their devices, but it was later removed for whatever reason, but the company wants to bring it back. It's likely that Samsung will push for uniformity in display refresh rates across its premium devices and it would be expected at top prices - while giving a mechanism to launch sub-flagship foldables with 60Hz displays as a price differentiator. It is expected to be powered by either Snapdragon 875 or Exynos 2100 SoC.
