For some, a smaller device just doesn’t do the job, and the top-end one is just too expensive, that’s why Samsung ensures that there’s a device that caters to various types of needs – just like the middle-man of the S21 series, the Galaxy S21+ 5G.
Samsung S21+ 5G
The S21+ 5G has a slightly larger 6.7-inch Full HD+ Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a 48 to 120Hz dynamic refresh rate. The device boasts an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. Under the hood is a 5nm SoC backed by 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage.
In the optics department, the S21+ 5G shares the same camera setup as its vanilla sibling. That means you get a 12MP main sensor with OIS, a 12MP ultra-wide unit, and a 64MP 3x telephoto unit OIS. Upfront is a 10MP snapper. For an in-depth look at the camera features, click here.
The S21+ runs on Samsung’s OneUI 3.1 and packs a 4,800mAh battery with both wired and wireless fast-charging, and Wireless PowerShare. Like the S20 series, it retains the Ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, Samsung DeX capability, and Stereo Speakers sound by AKG.
Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G Specifications
The device comes in two colors – Phantom Violet and Phantom Silver. It’ll be priced at PhP57,990 and will become available at Samsung.com, other Samsung online partners, and telco partners starting January 29, 2021.
Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S21 series will not come with a charger, but for a limited time, those who will purchase a unit will be offered a 25W wall charger as a freebie.
