Just a few minutes ago the Samsung Galaxy S21 they have been made official. The series is made up of 3 high-end devices with similar designs and hardware that varies depending on the price you are willing to pay. We are going to tell you 4 things you probably don’t know about these terminals and they are very interesting. The information in this article will probably be difficult to find elsewhere, as some points are not indicated by Samsung even on its own website.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 is made of plastic and not glass
You will probably read over the next few days that the Samsung Galaxy S21 are made of glass and metal. It is true, although with some quotes. Only the Galaxy S21 + and the Galaxy S21 Ultra are glass and metal terminals, the Galaxy S21 is made of plastic and metal. They all have a matte finish and appear in the photos to be made of the same materials.
You may read a review of the Galaxy S21 + or an article about it and see that it is made of glass. It is a mistake to think that his younger brother also has this finish. Samsung has decided to manufacture this device with plastic, something we don’t understand when we take a look at the price and find a RRP of 849 euros / dollars.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 score 618,000 points in AuTuTu
At ProAndroid.com we have been able to have the devices in hand for a few minutes. In this course of time we have been able to run AnTuTu on a Galaxy S21 +. The result was about 618,000 points, which places the Galaxy S21 in the fourth position of the current AnTuTu ranking.
It is a good score and is based on the terminal with the Exynos 2100 processor and not in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. This lets us know that the new Samsung terminals offer better results than last year, but that, in no case, are they at the top of the list.
The Galaxy S21 and S21 + have a worse screen than the Galaxy S20
Both the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 + offer displays with a resolution of 1,440 x 3,200 pixels, or what is the same, QHD +. This year Samsung has decided to lower the resolution of the panels to FullHD +, that is to say, 1,080 x 2,400 pixels.
This does not mean that they are low quality screens, far from it. What it does mean is that Samsung has cut back on specs for these new models. And no, there isn’t much of a breakthrough in panel features. According to Samsung, they are 2X Dynamic AMOLED screens with HDR10 + and 120 Hz.
On the panel, the screens of the Galaxy S21 are worse than those of the Galaxy S20. We repeat, worse does not mean bad. Of course, we cannot deny that It’s hard to understand Samsung’s strategy.
The new Galaxy S21 also do not include headphones
Most likely, by now you know perfectly well that the Samsung Galaxy S21 do not include charger in the box. If you want it, you will have to pay it separately. If you haven’t had another Galaxy S in previous years you may not know, but Samsung has been including headphones for years signed by AKG with braided cable and decent quality. They are not incredible, but they are better than the rest of the headphones that other manufacturers include.
With the Samsung Galaxy S21 the company also saves them and are no longer included in the box. That is, in the box comes the device (thank goodness), the start guide, the charging cable and the SIM extractor spike.
These are some curiosities of the Samsung Galaxy S21 that you should know very well before buying any of these devices. They are great terminals, but it is true that Samsung has not only cut the price a bit, but also the news that could be expected from Samsung’s high-end for 2021.
