Samsung Galaxy S21 series announcement and specs

Samsung, one of the best smartphone brands in the world. All of us are aware of the Samsung Galaxy S series. This series is continuing for many years from Samsung. But the Galaxy S series of 2021 has not the regular shape. It comes with a huge change and improvement. Yesterday Samsung announced its Galaxy S21 flagship.

Now, Let’s see the flagship.

This flagship has three members – Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 ultra. The flagship top version is the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Display

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has a 6.8″ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display panel. The display has curved sides and now Gorilla Glass Victus protection. It kept its 1440p+ resolution while the other two S21 models dropped to 1080p+.

This is Samsung’s first displayable to run at 120Hz refresh rate while rendering at the full 1440p+ resolution. And it’s an Adaptive Refresh Rate (ARR) display, which can drop to 10Hz when you don’t need the extra refreshes. This will reduce power usage, especially for static screens (think Always On Display). This also the brightest display of any Galaxy so far, with a peak of 1,500 nits.

Chipset & Operating system

Samsung is building two versions of the S21 Ultra – one with the Snapdragon 888 and one with the Exynos 2100. You don’t get a choice, the chipset is decided by where you buy the phone. As usual, North America gets the Snapdragon, Europe and India get the Exynos. In either case, the phone runs Android 11 with the latest One UI 3, which has some exclusive features (including the ones related to the S Pen).

Camera

The first camera upgrade you’ll notice is that there are two telephoto lenses now. The periscope was extended to 10x optical magnification and a traditional 3x lens was added to fill in the mid-range zoom gap. Below that, the high-resolution main sensor handles the 1x to 3x range with lossless digital zoom.

The 108MP main sensor has been upgraded too. Samsung calls it a “Bright Night sensor”, which uses its 9-in-1 pixel binning to 12MP, plus improvements in processing for superior low-light shots. You can get even better results from it if you do manual editing as it can output 12-bit RAW photos.

The S21 Ultra is the first Samsung to support 4K 60fps video recording with all cameras. All cameras, including the 40MP selfie camera, the 12MP Ultra Wide module (with Dual Pixel AF), the two telephoto cameras as well.

RAM & Storage

The Ultra starts at 128GB storage, the same as the other two phones, and has a 256GB option. If you really need a lot of storage, the top configuration comes with half a terabyte. That is tied to 16GB of RAM. If you think both numbers are overkill, the base RAM capacity is 12GB (the other two new S phones get only 8GB with no option for 12GB, which feels downright pedestrian).

Battery

The 5,000 mAh battery has the same capacity as last year, but it officially drops the maximum wired charging speed to 25W (that’s fast enough for a 50% charge in 30 minutes). And, controversially, there’s no charger in the box. The good news is that you can use any USB Power Delivery charger you have (PPS is supported), wireless chargers work too.

S-pen support

The other major change is that the S21 Ultra supports the S Pen. Or rather any Wacom stylus. You can get a big, comfy one or a small, easy to pocket one. This is important as (unlike the Note), there’s no place to stash the stylus – some Samsung cases have a compartment for it, but it’s that or your pocket.

That hurdle aside, the S Pen offers the same true to the life experience of taking notes and sketching your ideas, plus handy shortcuts that we’re used to. This version of the stylus doesn’t have a battery, so the Bluetooth functionality you’ve seen on the Notes (remote camera shutter key, motion gestures) is not available.

Price

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra starts at €1,250/£1,150 for the 12/128 GB model. That’s €100/£50 less than the S20 Ultra last year. Note: there are no 4G-only versions of the S-series this year.

The phone will be in stores from January 29, but it will probably arrive earlier if you pre-order one. If you do, you’ll get a pair of the new noise-canceling Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro and a SmartTag for free.

Now let’s see the Samsung Galaxy S21+.

Samsung Galaxy S21+

Display

Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus has a 6.7″ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display panel. Samsung Galaxy S21+ display has a 1080P+ resolution. The new panels have an adaptive refresh rate, however, which adjusts depending on the content from 48Hz to 120Hz. it has Gorilla Glass Victus guarding the screen, the back gets the “glasstic” treatment as if this was an A-series phone.

Chipset & Operating system

The two chipsets in question are the Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100, of course, once again dividing the world into zones of exclusive availability. There are no 4G-only versions this time around. The good news for Exynos-land is that the two chips are fabbed at the same foundries and use many of the same ARM-designed parts. It will run with Android 11 and UI 3.0 Beta.

Camera

The main camera uses a 12MP sensor with large 1.8µm pixels and Dual Pixel AF, same as last year. It sits behind an f/1.8 lens with OIS. Strangely, the 12MP ultrawide-angle (120°) camera has not gained autofocusing abilities as the Ultra did.

The 64MP camera is back to serve double duty. In photo mode, it offers 3X lossless zoom (with autofocus and OIS) and up to 30x “Space Zoom”. In video mode, it can record in 8K resolution at the same 24fps as last year.

RAM & Storage

It has 8GB of RAM as the standard and only option. Not that you need 12GB of RAM, but even the S10 had 8GB.

As for storage, you get 128GB as standard and can opt into 256GB. This will be all the storage you have as besides removing the charger, Samsung also dropped the microSD slot. Again, few people need more than 256GB, but there’s no upside in removing the slot.

Battery

It has a 4800mAh battery. Which upgrade to boot – the 4,800 mAh capacity is 300 mAh than last year. In terms of charging, all three S21 models are the same. They can go up to 25W with a suitable USB Power Delivery charger (which you have to supply yourself, there’s little besides a USB-C cable in the box). Wireless charging is rated at 15W going in and 9W going out.

Price

The Samsung Galaxy S21+ start at €1,050/£950.
