Samsung Galaxy S21 Price In USA and Specifications


Samsung Galaxy S21 Price in USA
The Samsung Galaxy S21 is the most affordable of the Galaxy S21 series phone with a retail price of around $699.99 in the US. 

The Samsung Galaxy S21 is seen as the immediate successor of the Galaxy S20 and had an initial retail price of USD. 799 when it was first released early this year. This was much more affordable as compared to the launch price of last year's Samsung Galaxy S20. However the S21 plastic back, 8GB RAM as well as a triple rear camera and a slightly reduced display resolution could be the key reasons for the price drop.

The phone features a trendy flat design with a unique camera geometric design that makes it stand out from the crowd. The luxurious haze finish gives the phone that elegant premium finish and comfortably takes out that 'plastic look'.

It features a 6.2 inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X edge-to-edge Infinity o display with 120 Hz adaptive refresh rate and HDR10+ support. This is exactly the same display size and type in the S20 but there's a slightly lower display resolution of 1080p which is significantly lower than the 1440p in the Galaxy S20.

The major improvement in the series is the new 5nm Exynos 2100 chipset as compared to the Exynos 990 in the S20. Those in the US, China and Korea get an advantage of the Snapdragon 888, a 5nm chipset as well.

The new processor comes with improved performance as well as reduced power consumption with an increased focus in data security and AI performance.

Just like it's predecessor, the Galaxy S21 comes with 8GB of RAM but with an option to choose between 128GB and 256GB of storage with no option of an external SD card. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra on it's part promises upto 16GB of RAM and upto 512GB internal storage but that will cost you much more.

There is also no noticeable change in the camera hardware with a 12MP wide primary camera, a 64MP telephoto lens and a 12MP 120 degrees ultrawide lens. However Samsung promises improved camera AI algorithms with enhanced subject and distant recognition especially for the macro lens as well as super steady camera performance.

The video resolution is also 8K with a new single take feature that allows you to take still photos simultaneously with video then later choose your preferred photos. The 8K snap also allows taking of 8K still photos from your recorded videos. There are also lots of camera features to play with including tripod support and Director view among others.

Your S20 comes in a variety of colors including the Phantom Grey, Phantom White, Phantom pink as well as the signature Phantom Violet.
