Samsung has just announced its latest-and-greatest flagship series. The Samsung Galaxy S21 series always gets updated with the best features, and they have not slacked with specifications on paper. Qualcomm’s new Chipset has also boosted performance and camera processing capabilities by a significant amount.
Let’s find out what Samsung can offer at its best. Let’s begin!
Samsung Galaxy S21 Series Variants
Samsung officially announced three new phones at their #Unpacked event- the Samsung S21, S21+, and the ultimate Samsung S21 Ultra. At the moment, the S21 Ultra could be the best android phone money can buy.
Speaking of money, Samsung has unveiled the pricing of the Samsung S21 Series in the UK, as listed below-
- Samsung Galaxy S21 5G (128GB): £769
- Samsung Galaxy S21 5G (256GB): £819
- Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G (128GB): £949
- Samsung Galaxy Ultra 5G (128GB): £1149
- Samsung Galaxy Ultra 5G (256GB): N/A
- Samsung Galaxy Ultra 5G (512GB): N/A
A Favourable Spec Bump
When it comes to specifications on paper, Samsung has managed to stuff this phone with their own Exynos 2100 chipset, which seems to have even better performance than its Snapdragon counterparts. The United Kingdom and some other countries will be getting the Exynos chip, while many regions will support the Snapdragon 888 chip under the hood.
Numbers Don’t Lie
Geekbench benchmarks reveal that the Samsung S21 scored 1068 and 3314 points in single and multi-core performance, respectively. These scores are a massive improvement from last year. There has been an improvement of roughly 300 and 700 points in singular and multi-core performance, respectively. Similar sources also confirm that faster RAM and processing power have vastly improved the overall experience.
Vivid Camera Features
Samsung has already started flexing its Exynos chip’s CPU processing powers by presenting us with professional photo editing features. For example, Object Eraser is a feature that allows you to remove a person from the background of an image.
According to the advertisements, the photo editor inside the camera app will recognize people in the background, and you can tap on the person to remove them. The AI editing software will fill the blank cutout of the person.
Cinematic Level Quality Features
Samsung’s camera quality has begun to get scary good. The triple camera setup has a 64-megapixel camera, which allows the user to zoom up to 30x space zoom. The 10x optical zoom is also great for clicking photos with people in them. The 30x zoom works exponentially better than its predecessor too. Once it’s zoomed all the way, the camera does not shake as much and focuses much, much faster.
The S21 Ultra has everything great about the Samsung S21 but has various add-on features that smartphone enthusiasts will appreciate. The S21 Ultra is also the first flagship with five cameras. All of these cameras come together to form a fantastic and futuristic feature called Director’s View.
The Director’s View allows the user to switch between different cameras while recording. There are also some slight tweaks to improve audio quality while recording 8K videos.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Series Final Verdict
Samsung’s flagship series has not failed to delight its customers. Apart from the plethora of new features, the system also contains Android 11 and Samsung One UI 3.0, enhancing usability and customization. Many users might miss the Micro SD card slot and charging brick in the box, but the overall package is still very lucrative, as Samsung has priced its phones very well this year.
The user reviews will tell us more, but it seems that Samsung has impressed most of us for now.
