A few days ago, Samsung released its Galaxy S21 series 5G mobile phones. Like the predecessor Galaxy S20 in 2020, there are also three models this year: the Galaxy S21 5G, the Galaxy S21+ 5G and the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. All models support the new cellular standard, as the name suggests.
Galaxy S21 5G and S21+ 5G Specifications
The two new models Galaxy S21 5G and S21+ 5G have the same equipment in most respects. The most obvious difference is the display size. While the Dynamic AMOLED of the Galaxy S21 5G measures 6.2 inches, it is 6.7 inches in the Galaxy S21+. Both have a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels with an update rate of up to 120 Hz.
Samsung uses the recently introduced Exynos 2100 SoC with a clock rate of up to 2.9 GHz in both models. The new chip from Samsung naturally supports 5G. There is also 8 GB of RAM. Customers can choose between 128 GB and 256 GB of permanent storage. It should be noted that Samsung has rationalized the slot for memory cards to expand the storage space. The earphones and the power supply unit also fell victim to the red pencil in the scope of delivery. The battery of the Galaxy S21 5G is 4,000 mAh, the Galaxy S21+ 5G has a size of 4,800 mAh.
On the back, the Samsung 5G phone has installed a triple camera in both models. It consists of a main sensor and an ultra-wide-angle camera with 12-megapixel sensor and a telephoto camera with 64-megapixel. This setting differs from its predecessor only in small details. In the front there is a selfie camera with 10 megapixels in the display. Samsung also installed an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor under the display and facial recognition. Samsung uses Android 11 with One UI 3.1 as the operating system. The price of the Samsung Galaxy S21 starts at 999USD. The Galaxy S21+ 5G Phone starts at 1100USD.
Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G with a better camera
As in the previous year, Samsung has also unveiled an Ultra model for the Galaxy S21. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is equipped with a 6.8-inch display and a 5,000 mAh battery. The SoC is identical, but with 12 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, 12 GB and 256 GB, and 16 GB and 512 GB more storage.
The biggest difference of the Ultra model is again the rear camera. Here Samsung relies on a quad camera with a 108-megapixel wide angle, an ultra-wide-angle camera with 12 megapixels and two telephoto lenses with 10 megapixels each. The price of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Utra 5G starts at 1300USD
