Not missing a year, even with Covid-19 looming around, every beginning of each year, Samsung launches a slew of their S series phones to kickstart the year with cool technology.
The S series phone for this year are the S21, S21+ and the S21 Ultra, ranging from small to large, just like last year.
S series is Samsung’s top of the line phones (that does not come with a pen inside) packing everything the company can think of. For instance, a revamp design, new colour variations, 5G ready, the best set of cameras, dual loudspeakers, fast and convenient charging capabilities, new ways to project & connect to external screens, world class state of the art screen technology, IP68 water resistant, seamless PC connectivity.
The purple and gold colour variation looks really classy.

The S21 Ultra also supports Samsung’s S Pen stylus as well, which can be brought separately or use with any old ones you have lying around.
This year’s S series phone screens also come with a built-in screen technology to lessen eye strain, with a dynamic 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10 ready like last year. And exclusive to the Ultra variant, the resolution of this 120Hz screen can be bumped up to beyond full HD if you choose.
They have fine-tuned their 8K video shooting capability for a smoother and YouTube-ready video capturing experience. Shaky-hand people will love the phones’ improved super smooth photo and video stabilization that will help to prevent unintended blurry photos.

Samsung was one of the leaders in phone camera zooming capability, which they have also claimed to have implemented an even better picture stabilization.
This would be the 1st year that Samsung Galaxy phones pack 5nm processors inside their latest phones as their brains to push the processing boundaries further.
To accompany the latest phones also comes a new pair of Samsung latest wireless ear buds: The Galaxy Buds Pro.
We will verify and test all the above in our future reviews in the coming months.
