Samsung Galaxy S21 5G: Full Specifications, Features and Price

Samsung introduced its new flagship line: The Galaxy S21 series! Here are the full features, specs and price of the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G.

In early 2021, Samsung introduced its new flagship line: The Galaxy S21 series! The Galaxy S21 has a good combination of specs, including a 120Hz Dynamic AMOLED display, great performance and a good camera with optical zoom.

Samsung supplies the Galaxy S21 in a number of striking colour variants. In addition to grey and white, you also get the S21 in pink and purple! The purple variant uses a different colour for the camera, which makes it extra striking. All colour variants have 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage memory.

Let’s delve right into the full features, specs and price of the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G.

Samsung Galaxy S21 5G Full Features (Preview)

The 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED display of the Samsung Galaxy S21 has a refresh rate of up to 120 frames per second. This makes moving images very smooth. This display also supports HDR, which dynamically adjusts the brightness of the screen. This makes the display ideal for watching movies and series.

The resolution of the display is 2400×1080. That is less than that of its predecessor, the Galaxy S20, but you don’t actually see that much of it. This is because smartphone displays are quite small. However, this lower resolution ensures that the battery lasts a lot longer. A conscious choice!

At the back of the S21, we find three different camera lenses. In addition to the primary lens for normal photos, the Galaxy S21 has an ultra-wide-angle lens to capture more of the environment. The telephoto lens ensures accurate zoom. This will bring distant objects close!

The Galaxy S21 contains the Exynos 2100 chip, which was introduced together with the S21. This octa-core processor delivers very good performance, which makes using multiple apps simultaneously or playing heavy games child’s play! The Galaxy S21 comes with 8GB of RAM.

The Galaxy S21 has a large battery of up to 4000mAh. This allows you to easily get through the day without having to recharge! Charging is done with a maximum power of 25 Watt, which also recharges your smartphone quickly.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 also supports high-speed mobile internet via the 5G network. This way you stream series and films at the highest quality and download large files from the internet in no time.

The 6.8-inch Galaxy S21 Ultra and the 6.7-inch display Galaxy S21 + are also announced at the same time.
