Galaxy S21 will be a power monster: features

The features of the Galaxy S21, which could arrive with the name Galaxy S30, have been revealed: on board Exynos processor and 16GB of RAM

Galaxy S21 is the new Samsung smartphone and most likely the most powerful among the next ones coming. The new phone, which might come with the name Galaxy S30 instead of S21, will be equipped with a 16GB LPDDR5 DRAM, the fastest in its category.

In early 2020 Samsung had announced the production of a new series of 16GB RAM based on the third-generation 10-nanometer technology. A powerful and fast memory, which could be equipped right on Galaxy S21, the new top of the range of the South Korean company. But RAM will not be the only top feature of the device: on board there will also be the new Exynos chipset able to compete on equal terms with the new Snapdragon 875 and A14 Bionic (the processor available on the iPhone 12).

Galaxy S21, the most powerful of the top of the range

The new 16 GB RAM that Samsung has started producing solves a major obstacle: Samsung's DRAM will offer the fastest speed currently on the market, allowing it to transfer data at a speed of 6400 megabits per second, which makes it 16% faster than the current 12 GB LPDDR5 memory that comes with for example the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

In addition to the speed, the RAM bank will also be 30% thinner than its predecessors, taking up less space in the smartphone. Jung-bae Lee, executive VP of DRAM Product & Technology, pointed out that the new RAM moves the industry to new and higher levels. However, it's still unclear if the new DRAM will be used exclusively by Samsung, or if it might decide to sell it to third parties.

Galaxy S21, the other features

No confirmation yet on the chipset of the Galaxy S21 series, which will surely support the 5G connection standard. The processor could be a next-generation Exynos, or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 875. The operating system instead will be based on Android 11, integrated with Samsung's One UI. From the hardware point of view, the new smartphone will be presented with very thin bezels and will be resistant to water and dust.

Also the camera will be top of the range. Several rumors speak of a 108-megapixel sensor, the evolution of the current ISOCELL Bright HM1 produced by Samsung with Nanoacell technology and whose name would be ISOCELL Bright HM2. The new technology would ensure even brighter shots even in difficult lighting conditions, while maintaining excellent resolution.
