Just as previously rumored, the middle child in the Samsung Galaxy S21 family – the S21+, or whatever Samsung calls it – may have a larger battery than its predecessor the S20+. The reports so far have been pegging a 4800mAh battery for the S21+, compared to a 4500mAh one on the S20+ (the same capacity is in the Note 20 Ultra).
Unfortunately, the same certification filings reveal that the Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra will have the same 4000mAh and 5000mAh capacities as their predecessors. The S21, however, is expected to land with a 1080p display, so not all is lost in terms of a battery life bump for the series as a whole, given that they will also carry new chipsets.

The phone is also listed with 8GB of RAM, and the peak processing speed is given as 2.2GHz, although we’d expect this to be an early engineering version, so we wouldn’t put much weight into one early benchmark for the S21+ performance just yet.
