Microsoft announces for the first time that Windows 10 will stop receiving support in 2025

this is the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and its superlative photography


Samsung raises the level (even more) of its best mobile photography, and in Andro4all we help you know all the details of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G camera ... Are you going to miss them?

Very soon in this 2021 that we have just started, anticipating the entire industry and fulfilling all expectations one hundred percent, the truth is that Samsung has introduced us to its new (but already known) Galaxy S21 family, which again comes in three flavors confirming that for Samsung this saving surprises for its UNPACKED does not matter too much.

In fact, we already knew that it would be this Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G that would mount all the best of the Samsung factory, starting with the Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel and going through its new Exynos 2100, until ending in the most impressive mobile photography South Koreans have been able to develop, once again as a flag and differentiation of your smartphone more premium.

Samsung's idea is none other than catch up with the latest from Apple and Huawei, the iPhone 12 and Mate 40 Pro, as well as a Google Pixel 5 that plays with a well differentiated strategy, betting on a number less than the four sensors integrated by Samsung together with a laser autofocus and a high-level software that returns to bet on the Space Zoom 100X and a new Director's View that you will love ... Let's go for all the details!

Samsung's best photography looks good… At least on paper!

There are not many surprises in terms of the number of sensors and their arrangement, although Samsung this time has integrated them much better in the overall design Galaxy S21 opting for a metal module that is inserted into the chassis itself unibody of the device, getting a much more pleasant sense of continuity than the globs and huge "humps" of 2020.

In any case, Samsung's superlative photography once again opts for a versatile, well-endowed and high-quality set, which is established with necessary improvements in the software to give greater prominence to the 108 MP main sensor, accompanied by two telephoto shots and an ultra wide angle as well as a laser sensor for hybrid autofocus and many possibilities that we now reveal to you.

But, let us start at the beginning, What does the best mobile photography of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra offer? Well all this ...

  • 108 MP wide (f / 1.8), 26mm-equivalent, 2nd gen sensor, PDAF + laser hybrid autofocus, OIS
  • 12 MP ultrawide (f / 2.2), 13mm-equivalent, PDAF dual-pixel autofocus, video Super Steady
  • 10 MP telephoto (f / 2.4), 70mm-equivalent, PDAF dual-pixel autofocus, OIS, 3x optical zoom
  • 10 MP periscope telephoto (f / 4.9), 240mm-equivalent, PDAF dual-pixel autofocus, OIS, 10x optical zoom
  • Sensor depth ToF 3D
  • AF laser sensor
  • LED flash
  • Video 8K @ 24fps, 4K @ 60fps, slow motion 720p @ 960fps, HDR10 +, stereo audio recording, gyro-EIS
  • Front sensor 40 MP wide (f / 2.2), 26mm-equivalent, PDAF autofocus, HDR, 4K video @ 60fps

The biggest surprise, the double zoom with a double telephoto lens

It is not the first time that we have seen a double telephoto lens installed on a smartphone, Huawei itself did it on its successful Mate 40 Pro, considered the best photographic mobile of the year 2020 by DxOMark, although it is a surprise that Samsung has chosen this configuration to improve the spatial zoom of your iconic Galaxy S.

In fact, indeed the 108 megapixels and the vaunted Space Zoom which the Galaxy S20 Ultra boasted last year, with no less than 100 increases, although we will have to see how the 3 and 10 optical magnifications perform that respectively present the two telephoto.

On paper it is obvious that it sounds very good, especially since Samsung also implements new software with improvements that we will now talk about, supporting RAW up to 12 bit and video recording up to resolution 4K and 60 frames per second on all sensors. Yes, in all ... In all 4!

The new night mode with nona binning will also be in charge of improving the present, grouping 9 pixel information into one for the best photos in low light conditions. In this regard, it should be remembered that most technologies in the pixel binning of the other manufacturers they group only 4 pixels.

And not least, night mode now allows exposure for up to 30 seconds, something that will also be appreciated for a camera that promises maximum versatility and the tightest results in almost any condition.

Directors View on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra

This is what the new 'Director's View' mode looks like on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Artificial intelligence, professional video and the new Director's View to convince us completely

If last year a large number of reaped criticism by the best Samsung Galaxy camera was in the video section, it seems that South Koreans have wanted to catch up, starting as we have said by offering the 4K recording up to 60 frames per second on any of the four sensors of the main module.

This has made his engineers think about the great idea of offer us a new way Director's View that will allow us to preview in real time the result in each sensor, being able to seamlessly switch between individual cameras and thus offering a greater capacity for creation to users.

Also striking is the cinema recording in 8K resolution at 24 frames per second, being able to take ultra-high resolution captures directly and in portrait mode while recording video.

It has been improved portrait mode AI so that the lighting is the best in any condition, the device automatically interpreting the depth, an AI that is also used to increase clarity and reduce movement when using the Space Zoom with much magnification.

There are improvements also for Single Take, the popular single capture function, which receives new modes, and a dual video option called "Vlogger View" that allows you to capture video at the same time with the front camera and the main camera simultaneously.

Lots of meat on the spit from a differential mobile photography, it converts into the great attraction of this very expensive Ultra model which will once again be around 1,300 euros, but that at least comes with the gift of the Galaxy Buds Pro if we choose to reserve it now ...
