Samsung has unpacked its latest flagship devices: the Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra. The trio features an all-new look, pro-grade cameras, and 5G support.

Galaxy S21

Fresh and sleek

The three phones differ in specs, but they all sport the same bold, new style. Now, the S21 phones sport contour cut camera housing that blends into the device’s metal frame.

In addition, the S21 series boasts of an intelligent Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity-O display with an adaptive refresh rate and the latest Gorilla Glass Victus protection. This year, Samsung has dropped the curved edges, giving the new series a flatter, sleeker look. A single hole-punch cutout at the top-center with the front camera interrupts the display. Meanwhile, the adaptive 120Hz refresh rate allows for smoother scrolling and viewing.

The lighter and more compact S21 comes in with a 6.2-inch display, while the S21+ arrives with an expanded 6.7-inch display. Meanwhile, the most premium of the trio, the S21 Ultra, comes with a 6.8-inch display.

Pro-grade cameras

In the camera department, the phones vary, too. But all three are able to pull 8K photos from videos as well as shoot photos and videos simultaneously with the new Best Shot Mode. Space Zoom also sees improvements, giving users the ability to shoot clearer and steadier shots even at 30x zoom.

The S21 and S21+ feature a triple camera setup consisting of 12MP wide, 64MP telephoto, and 12MP ultrawide lenses. Meanwhile, the Ultra gets a quad camera array with 108MP main, 10MP periscope, 10MP telephoto, and 12MP ultrawide sensors.

Delivering performance and connectivity

The three phones deliver next-generation performance and seamless connectivity thanks to the Exynos 2100 chip built on Samsung’s own 5nm EUV process This gives the trio power to process photos, record 8K videos, enjoy a cloud gaming marathon, and crunch more tasks.

The Ultra is also the first from the Galaxy S series to support the S Pen.

Following in Apple’s footsteps, Samsung won’t be shipping the phones with power bricks out of the box.
