Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra specifications
Samsung’s latest range of Galaxy Smartphones have hit the market. Here are the specifications and the pricing for the Samsung Galaxy s21 set of smartphones. A lot of gamers and selfie-lovers will be looking out for this.
What you will hear most times is just the term “Galaxy s21” and some may think of it as a single smartphone. But that can be confusing at times. What some people actually mean when they say Galaxy s21 is three separate smartphones which include Galaxy S21, S21+, and the S21 Ultra. This is why we have decided to see them as a “set of smartphones.” The specifications table below is separated into two: one for both the Galaxy s21 and the s21+ and the other for the s21 Ultra.
The s21 and s21 plus share a whole lot of features and that’s why they are sharing a single column. They both come with a non-expandable 128GB internal storage. The same goes for the s21 Ultra. But in some countries, the internal memory for the s21 Ultra is expandable.
Both the s21 and the s21 plus also come with 8GB of RAM.
For some time now, Galaxy smartphones have been known for big RAM sizes and cameras.
The Galaxy Ultra for example comes with a top-notch 108MP camera. All three s21 smartphones also have an AI-powered object eraser feature that allows you to delete objects from the background after taking a photo. And it takes just two touches to do this: you simply select an object you want to remove, then touch the ‘remove’ option to get it out. The AI technology fills out the background (just the way you would do it using photoshop) at the same time so the removed object doesn’t leave a blank space. This happens so fast that you won’t even notice when the change occurs. You are about to be blown away, believe that.
