At the all-digital CES 2021, Samsung introduced its latest 5G smartphone — the Galaxy S21 line, which features three different versions of the phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 standard edition features a 6.2 in flat FHD+ active-matrix organic light emitting diode (AMOLED), a 5 nm 64-bit octa-core processor with a 2.9 GHz clock speed and 8 GB of RAM with 128 to 256 GB of internal storage. The phone includes a 10 megapixel front camera and three cameras on the back; an ultra-wide 12 megapixel field of view; a wide-angel 12 megapixel and a telephoto 64 megapixel camera with 30 times space zoom.
The Samsung Galaxy S21+ features the same configurations as the standard phone but with a 6.7 in display and a slightly more powerful lithium-ion battery. Both phones include 5G non-standalone, standalone, sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave (mmWave) connectivity, allowing it to run on a variety of networks worldwide. Both phones also include an ultrasonic fingerprint, accelerometer, barometer, gyroscope, geomagnetic, hall, proximity and ambient light sensors.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra features a 6.8 in Edge QHD+ AMOLED display, improved cameras, including a 40 megapixel phase detection front camera and 12 to 16 GB of RAM with options for 128, 256 or 512 GB of internal storage. The Ultra also includes a more powerful battery compared to the S21+.
In the U.S., preorders for the phone have started and will be available later this month through Verizon and AT&T.
