Samsung Galaxy S21 series officially launched with Snapdragon 888, S Pen, One UI 3.1, and less price

 

Samsung is taking a major step in the right direction in 2021, and the new Galaxy S21 will cost $200 less. The original model of the Galaxy S21 series is the Galaxy S21, starting price is $799, down from last year’s $999.

Despite the price reduction, it still provides a very complete product package. It is equipped with Snapdragon 888 processor, three rear cameras, and 5G, this time the smallest phone also includes mmWave.

The Galaxy S21+ has almost the same design, except for the larger display, which starts at $999. However, there is a big difference between these two phones. The S21+ has Samsung’s regular glass back cover, while the normal Galaxy S21 has matte plastic similar to the Galaxy S20 FE.

Both phones are downgraded to 1080p displays – the S21 is 6.2 inches and the S21 + 6.7 inches, but with Samsung’s adaptive 120Hz display, the refresh rate can be adjusted to better suit the content and save battery. Both phones come with 8GB of RAM and lack microSD expansion. You will also see an IP68 waterproof performance, Qi wireless charging, Android 11 / One UI 3.1, and a larger battery.

In the camera department, Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21+ come with a 12MP sensor for the main wide-angle camera and auxiliary ultra-wide-angle camera, with a 120-degree field of view. However, the telephoto camera uses 64MP to create a 3x hybrid zoom. Samsung also offers 30x space zoom on both devices and has a 10MP selfie shooter in a punch-hole display.

On the other hand, Samsung also has the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which is the top flagship of this year. It has the same key specifications, the Snapdragon 888, no microSD slot, adaptive 120Hz, and ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. The S21 Ultra has 12GB of RAM, as well as a top model with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage space.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra features a 6.8-inch QHD + curved display, which uses the new Eye Comfort Shield like the S21 and S21+. This new technology is designed to reduce harmful blue light at any time (not only at night) without damaging your eyes.

Samsung’s display on the Galaxy S21 Ultra can also reach a peak brightness of 1,500 nits. The center punch-hole display features a 40MP selfie camera upgrade.

Talking about cameras, the main camera of the Galaxy S21 Ultra is a 108MP sensor with the same laser autofocus system that we found on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. There is a 12MP camera for ultra-wide-angle shooting and two 10MP sensors for zooming. The first is a 3x optical zoom lens, and the second is a 10x zoom.

In combination, Samsung can use them to achieve 100x “space zoom”, which should be able to see the higher quality this time than last year’s S20 Ultra mid-level display. Samsung reported that users can shoot at 4k/60fps on the Galaxy S21 Ultra for every lens (even a selfie camera). In professional mode, photos also have a new 12-bit RAW option.

Samsung also gave S Pen support to the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the first support of the Galaxy S series. However, unlike the Galaxy Note series, the Ultra does not have a dedicated slot to store the S Pen in the phone. Samsung will sell the stylus pen with cases that can store the stylus.

The regular Galaxy S21 will come in Phantom Violet, Phantom Gray, Phantom Pink, and Phantom White, while the Galaxy S 21+ will come in Phantom Violet, Phantom Black, and Phantom Silver. The Galaxy S21 Ultra will use Phantom Silver and Phantom Black.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 series will be launched in the US on 29 January, pre-orders will start on 14 January. The basic model is priced at $799, while the S21+ is priced at $999, and the S21 Ultra is priced at $1,199.

Pre-order offers include Samsung.com’s $100, $150, or $200 credit and free Galaxy Smart tag. Trade discounts can also save up to $700.

Honor trolls Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

Honor will introduce the Magic Vs clamshell foldable smartphone at the Mobile World Congress 2023. Ahead of the event, Honor posted an ad taking a jibe at Samsung for its Galaxy Z Fold/Flip foldable smartphones launched between 2019 to 2022.

Since Honor ad has been posted to criticize Samsung, it shows that the Chinese brand admits Galaxy Z Fold and Flip line is far ahead of its first foldable (clamshell) product. In the ad, Honor showcased that its upcoming flip phone has no gap around the crease area, which can be easily seen in Samsung’s foldables.

In its recent Twitter post, Honor targeted the gap seen in the Galaxy Z Flip foldable smartphones in the folded state. So far, Samsung used a U-type hinge design, which results in a gap at the mid-spot (the area where the display folds/hinge).

The Chinese company featured four Galaxy foldable smartphones including the Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Flip released in 2019 to 2022. The motive of Honor is to criticize Samsung and show itself as a great brand, but, it’s not happening at all!

Honor is exposed! The company ad is revealing that it has deeply studied what Samsung did in the evolution of the Galaxy Z Flip foldable smartphones. The latest Galaxy Z Flip 4 is a great-selling device in the global market, which is praised for its stylish design and durability.

The South Korean tech giant would introduce the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 smartphones at the August Unpacked 2023. Ahead of this, seasonal moths are trying their luck outside the boundaries of mainland China, it’s not the case, customers know where to trust.

Just a thing, Samsung’s foldable phones launched in and after 2021 are capable of surviving against water, thanks to the IPX8 rating. Leaving copyable apart, water resistance and durability features can’t be copied easily, so boy (of course Honor) get ready to witness the Galaxy Z Flip 5 this August.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra don’t support Jio True 5G in India

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

The Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra are two of Samsung’s top-end flagship devices. The company launched both flagships in 2020, featuring pro-grade hardware capabilities. Meanwhile, there’s bad news for consumers of Galaxy S20 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra, about Jio True 5G support in India.

According to our research, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G smartphones don’t support Jio True 5G network in India. Jio deploying a 5G network with Stand Alone architecture in India to offer powerful features like low latency, 5G voice, Edge computing, and network slicing.

Stand Alone 5G is a software-centric approach, which requires smartphone vendors to release a special firmware update for the device to unlock the 5G network support. Meanwhile, vendors are somewhat cheating here with older models taking advantage of the “hardware limitation” phrase.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphones are equipped with Samsung’s own made Exynos 990 (7nm) processor. Both of these devices are sold as 5G capable phones in the country, but now, consumers have to switch their carrier to Airtel or forget about 5G.

Jio confirmed to SammyFans that the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G is not listed to feature True 5G support in India. The OEM can not release 5G-supported firmware updates due to application processor limitations.

By the way, it doesn’t mean your device won’t run the 5G network at all. You can switch to another carrier (such as Airtel), which is featuring non-standalone architecture. It doesn’t require any software update or support from the smartphone manufacturer but might lag behind Jio’s True 5G in some cases.

Galaxy S20 FE supports Jio True 5G, here’s why

Samsung released the Galaxy S20 FE 4G with the same Exynos processor as the Galaxy S20 and Note 20 series in India. Later on, the company brought a 5G-supported Galaxy S20 FE, which uses Snapdragon 865 processor. Jio True 5G is supported on this device and users can enjoy the benefits post-SA update.
