Galaxy S21 features: 6.2-inch display and Exynos 2100 processor

Galaxy S21’s 6.2-inch screen offers a resolution of 1080 × 2400 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The pixel density of the screen, which has HDR10 + support and can thus increase its brightness to 1300 nits, is at the level of 421 ppi.
Similar to previous models, the screen does not offer a continuous 120 Hz refresh rate. The phone automatically changes the refresh rate of the screen between 48 and 120 Hz according to the content, thus optimizing power consumption.
Featuring Corning’s most advanced protection technology, Gorilla Glass Victus, this screen is called Dynamic AMOLED 2X by Samsung.
Galaxy S21 camera: 8K video recording, 30x Space Zoom
When the iPhone X was released with a screen notch, many brands criticized it and even made fun of it. However, most of the brands that were critical afterwards included the screen notch on their phones. Samsung never used the notch, instead opting to use the pop-up camera system and screen hole.
The front camera of the Galaxy S21 with a resolution of 10 Megapixels and f / 2.2 aperture is centered at the top of the screen. Using this camera, you can record 60 FPS video at 4K resolution.
Three cameras appear on the back. The f / 1.8 main camera with 12 Megapixel resolution and OIS is accompanied by a 12 Megapixel f / 2.2 ultra-wide angle and 64 Megapixel f / 2.0 telephoto camera.
While the angle of view of the ultra-wide camera is 120 degrees, you can zoom 3x hybrid thanks to the telephoto camera. The phone, which can record 30 FPS video at 8K resolution, is also capable of HDR10 + video recording.
The digital zoom, which Samsung calls “Space Zoom”, is up to 30x.
Say goodbye to charger with Galaxy S21!
After Apple said goodbye to the charger at Samsung. All models of the Galaxy S21 series come without a charger. The box includes a USB-C cable, SIM card eject pin and a quick start guide.
While its rivals outperformed 65W levels when it comes to fast charging, Samsung is being cautious. In this context, the 4000 mAh battery of Galaxy S21 has 25W fast charging support. Wireless is at the level of 15W.
Wi-Fi 6E, 4000 mAh battery and more
One of the most striking features of the Galaxy S21, which can connect with two devices at the same time thanks to its dual Bluetooth technology, is that it comes with Wi-Fi 6e. It is possible to reach much higher speeds thanks to this new technology that has been switched before Wi-Fi 6 is even widespread.
To explain with an example: While the 6.5 GB Fortnite is downloaded in 31 seconds with Wi-Fi 6 connection, this time decreases to 8 seconds in Wi-Fi 6E.
Samsung’s new flagship comes with a choice of four colors: Phantom Gray, Phantom White, Phantom Violet and Phantom Pink. To put it simply, according to the image above, in order: Violet, Pink, Gray, and White.
How much is the Galaxy S21 price?
The Samsung Galaxy S21 price is set at 850 Euros for Europe and $ 799 for the USA.
