Introducing to you is Samsung’s latest flagship 5G powered Smartphones with FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O adaptive 120Hz display – the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G and Galaxy S21+ 5G handsets with 1080p+ displays.
Samsung announced these handsets during its Galaxy Unpacked online event. The Samsung Galaxy S21 starts at €850/£770. While the Galaxy S21+ at €1,050/£950. You can pre-order the devices right now, and will start entering stores from the 29th of January.
With the Galaxy 21+ 5G offering a larger 6.7-inch with glass back panel, it is much more premium than the Galaxy S21 5G with 6.2-inch screen size and A-series’s glasstic rear panel design.
Both phones come with an FHD+ Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED Display and Gorilla Glass Victus protection. The 1080p+ displays on the new S21 and S21+ 5G is a downgrade from the S20’s 1440p+ resolution.
There is support for 394 PPI, Adaptive 120Hz refresh rate, which adjusts depending on the content from 48Hz to 120Hz, and up to 1300 nits brightness. Behind the displays is an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor that is 70% larger than last year.
It supports IP68 water-resistant and dust-resistant, Single / Dual SIM, and runs on Android 11 with One UI 3.1. Inside the standard punch-hole is the regular 10-megapixels resolution with its usual features.
The phone feature a iconic Contour Cut Camera housing that seamlessly blends into the device’s metal frame. There is the triple rear cameras, a primary 12-megapixel Dual Pixel primary sensor with OIS, large 1.8µm pixels, and f/1.8 lens.
Supporting the camera is the secondary 12-megapixel Ultra Wide Lens with a 120-degree field of view and a 64-megapixel Telephoto lens, offering 3X lossless zoom with autofocus and OIS and up to 30x “Space Zoom”.
These phones can record in 8K resolution at the same 24fps as last year. On the Galaxy S21+ is the Ultra Wide Band (UWB) support, which allows for faster local phone-to-phone data transfers and has direction-sensing capabilities used with tracking tags.
Powering these handsets are the Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5nm Mobile Platform and Octa-Core Samsung Exynos 2100 processor. Samsung uses two 5nm chipsets and the Adjustable Refresh Rate display to help reduce power usage.
These two chipsets bring enough exclusive features as they are fabbed at the same foundries and use many of the same ARM-designed parts. Although, there are no 4G-only versions this time around.
Unfortunately, Samsung is offering these two devices in non-appreciative 8GB LPDDR5 RAM, not even up to 12GB RAM, which would have given more room to options. The other two storage options are 128GB and 256GB.
Keeping the light of the Galaxy S21 5G is its 4000mAh battery, while the 4800mAh battery fuels the Galaxy S21+ 5G. Both Smartphones comes with support for wired 25W fast charging and 15W Fast Wireless Charging.
There is also the new Wireless PowerShare feature that charges Qi-compatible devices on the back of the phones. Following Apple’s footsteps, Samsung ensured that the phones did not arrive with a wall charger or wired earbuds.
When you order the Samsung Galaxy 21 5G or Galaxy S21+ 5G before the 29th of January, Samsung promises that you will receive a pair of Galaxy Buds Live and a Samsung SmartTag for free. These devices come with Samsung services like Bixby, Samsung Health, and Samsung Pay.
