Galaxy S21 series smartphones

Like last year, Samsung has unveiled three new Galaxy S21, S21 +, and S21 Ultra. All models support 5G and the new Wi-Fi 6E standard (although this is not yet relevant in Russia), have IP68 water protection, and are equipped with screens with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. However, the models differ in camera design and have different specifications.

The most advanced model is, of course, the Galaxy S21 Ultra. It has the largest screen (6.8 inches, QHD +) and the largest battery (5000 mAh). There is also a top-end quad camera with a 108-megapixel main sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, and a 10-megapixel dual telephoto camera (Dual-Tele Zoom: 3x optical and 10x optical).

The smartphone supports 100x Space Zoom – in the previous model; it was also in the S21 Ultra. The technology was improved due to a dual telephoto lens system: the device automatically switches between sensors depending on the selected zoom and makes pictures clearer.

The video shows how wide-angle and optical zoom shooting works on the new Galaxy S21 Ultra. Even at 10x magnification and no additional stabilization, the footage is pretty sharp.

Also, the new S21 Ultra became the first smartphone in the line to support 4K 60 fps video recording on the main camera and the front camera. Another innovation is Bright Night technology for night shooting, which uses a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera sensor. Thus, it is possible to take photos without unnecessary noise, as is usually the case in low light.

The S21 and S21 + are slightly more compact than the Ultra – with 6.2 and 6.5-inch screens. However, they have the same triple cameras: the main sensor is 12 Mp, the width is 12 Mp, and the advanced telephoto is 64 Mp. Smartphones can shoot in 8K and record sound simultaneously on multiple microphones – including using connected headphones. We will tell you more about the S21 camera in a separate review.

In terms of performance, all smartphones in the line have a new processor based on the 5nm Exynos 2100 process technology. It includes 8 cores with a clock speed of up to 2.9 GHz and is 20% more energy efficient than the previous 7nm model. The Arm Mali G78 GPU supports APIs like Vulkan and OpenCL and provides increased graphics performance. In general, there can be no doubt about the power of the new Galaxy.

The design of smartphones has not changed much compared to the previous generation. They are all the same from the front – a small round cutout for the front is left in the center of the display, which in older models has rounded edges.

The cameras’ style has been slightly modified: the blocks with sensors remain the same massive, but now they are also highlighted with an additional metal frame. The Galaxy S21 is available in purple, pink, gray, and white, while the older versions are purple, black, and silver. The new coating is called “phantom” and looks more like metal – although it is Gorilla Glass Victus.

Another feature of the new models, which cannot be kept silent, is the absence of headphones and an AC adapter in the bundle. The manufacturer explains this decision with concern for the environment and believes that users already have a Samsung charger. Of course, such an explanation looks much more elegant than the banal economy’s admission: compact boxes are easier to transport, and you will no longer have to produce many shareware adapters and headphones.

You can buy a branded or certified charger to charge your smartphone. How not to make the wrong choice, read the article:

The Galaxy S21 is already available for pre-order for $499.99. Purchase from Samsung’s website as a gift with headphones and a new Galaxy SmartTag search accessory.

Galaxy SmartTag

SmartTag is a keychain that you can hang on your smartphone, keys, pet collar, or wherever you want to find this object when needed easily. The gadget works thanks to the SmartThings Find service, which Samsung launched last year. It allows you to track the geolocation of Galaxy devices even when they are offline.

You can connect such a “beacon” to a smartphone using the SmartThings Find application – pairing occurs via Bluetooth. After some simple settings, the device will send data about its location to the program. It can also be used to search for the smartphone itself – if you press the button on the SmartTag, the connected gadget will emit a sound signal. You can also configure this button to interact with other Samsung equipment, such as turning on the TV.

Galaxy Buds Pro

Samsung also released a new wireless headset – Buds Pro. From the previous model Buds Live, she got only a case, but the headphones’ design has changed markedly. These are no longer beans, but small droplets, more like the version before last Buds +.

Vacuum headphones with replaceable silicone ear pads. Unlike the same Buds +, which are comfortable to grip on the rubber tabs around the case, the new Buds Pro is completely glossy and quite slippery – they easily fall out of the hands. But in terms of technology, they are crammed with everything possible: triple microphones with a bone conduction sensor, active noise cancellation, fast charging, IPX7 water protection, and a new 360 Audio mode for surround sound new Galaxy S21 smartphones.
