Samsung has launched the Galaxy S21 series, which now comes with the Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra. The three smartphones feature the Exynos 2100 SoC based on the 5nm process and features 5G integrated in the SoC. The Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus feature 6.2-inch and 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X QHD+ displays respectively, with adaptive refresh rates of 48Hz to 120Hz. The two phones also feature triple camera setups – 12MP standard, 12MP ultra-wide and 64MP telephoto. They will also run on OneUI 3.0. The Galaxy S21 features four new colours and costs $799, and the S21+ features three new colours and costs $999.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, meanwhile, comes with a 6.8-inch display with 10Hz to 120Hz adaptive refresh rate.

It also features a headlining colour – Phantom Black, and prices for it will begin at $1,199. The full set of specs will include the usually superlative scales of RAM, too.
Samsung also expanded its partnership with Google. It also announced the Galaxy Buds Pro with Intelligent ANC and a tweeter+woofer dynamic driver setup, and costs $299. It also unveiled the Galaxy SmartTag+ to keep track of non-smart objects, for which prices begin at $29.99. All India prices and availability details will be made available soon.

In terms of video, ALL cameras on the S21 Ultra can shoot 4K at 60fps (including the front one). You can also shoot 8K at 30fps. Samsung also claimed that they are so good at shooting videos on phone that they are creating a new thing altogether – mobile film-making. That's.. not true, is it? Mobile filmmaking has been there for a long time!
The new 108MP sensor will apparently feature remosaicing, which is a new camera technology found in more and more cameras worth their salt. The sensor of course uses "nona-binning", or combining nine pixels into one. There's also, of course, a multi-frame processing-based AI night mode for computational photography.
