Shock! The Samsung S21 Extremely Is Nice For The Enterprise, Too

At Galaxy Unpacked 2021, Samsung just about launched the brand new Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, Galaxy S21 Extremely, and the Galaxy Buds Professional and Galaxy SmartTag. I attended the occasion alongside Moor Insights & Technique analyst Anshel Sag, and you may learn my full take right here.

I lately spent just a few weeks utilizing the Galaxy S21 Extremely as my main enterprise gadget, primarily utilizing a mixture of productiveness and collaboration purposes like Groups, WebEx, and Zoom and testing out new safety features. Final 12 months, I talked about how Samsung produced an unimaginable enterprise-ready gadget with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Extremely. I anticipated the Samsung S21 Extremely Enterprise Version to be a robust follow-up to final 12 months’s gadget. Over the past 12 months, Samsung has set the usual for the final word enterprise smartphone, and I needed to judge the brand new S21 Extremely from a pure enterprise perspective. 

There is no doubt that the Galaxy S21 line makes for unimaginable, premium client gadgets, however the coveted enterprise market comes with some totally different, extra gadget necessities. Let’s take a better take a look at the brand new lineup of gadgets as Samsung launched the Galaxy S21 Extremely Enterprise Version and what Samsung has finished to optimize it for enterprise clients.

Each taste of 5G

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Extremely 5G – Enterprise Version marked one other main milestone on the march in direction of 5G ubiquity. It has been two years since most main carriers have introduced plans for a 5G community, and within the U.S. now, each main metropolis and provider has 5G in some kind or style with a web-based mmWave, Sub6 GHz, or each. 

Final 12 months, I discussed that I take into account the S20 the primary “5G world telephone” to assist each taste of 5G. This 12 months, I really feel the S21 is the primary “Absolutely-capable 5G world telephone”. 5G networks being up and operating worldwide is crucial for enterprises in that if it sends its staff on work journeys domestically or internationally, employees may have entry to 5G protection abroad. With the S21 Extremely, enterprise employees may have a telephone that may take full benefit of the speedy networks. Carriers have been advancing to assist this, and the S21 is extra prepared than ever to take workplace wherever you might be. One other advantage of 5G is velocity and low latency, which, with mmWave networks, is quicker and rather more safe than Wi-Fi. Velocity, in fact, advantages employees in that they’ve the next likelihood of getting an excellent collaboration expertise and if tethered to their pocket book, an workplace expertise making collaboration and easy file cloud-sharing a lot simpler.

As extra companies go wi-fi with distant work and hybrid preparations, congested and saturated networks grow to be inevitable. One main plus to the Samsung S21 Extremely Enterprise Version is that in contrast to the usual S21 that solely has Wi-Fi 6, the flagship gadget has Wi-Fi 6E, which provides worth in numerous methods. Wi-Fi 6E means much less congestion, much less combating for Wi-Fi, and getting enormously higher Wi-Fi speeds in your smartphone gadget for little to no interruptions from every day duties. 

The Galaxy S21 Extremely provides the newest and best connectivity applied sciences, ultra-wideband together with Wi-Fi 6E and 5G. With ultra-wideband, you’ll be able to share information simply or entry buildings or workplace areas saving cash on key playing cards for your self and staff. The Galaxy S21 is the primary smartphone ever to assist the community giving it extra capability and decrease latency. If 5G is in your space, which it almost definitely is, then the Galaxy S21 Extremely lets you be extra collaborative and sensible with a plethora of 5G protection choices. 

The S-Pen and Dex

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Extremely can also be the primary S-series gadget ever with S-Pen assist. Positive, there is not a spot to place your S-Pen except you purchase a case that holds it, however do not let that cease you simply but. Contemplating the S-Pen is an add-on, it’s good to have, area of interest characteristic on the S21. I might see enterprise customers utilizing the potential for creativity and in addition collaboration to streamline workflows. I might personally use the S-Pen to signal paperwork, edit kinds, or clear up a fast PowerPoint presentation. 

The brand new Dex (desktop expertise) software is a welcomed addition. Samsung launched Wi-fi Dex with the Samsung Galaxy S21 to enhance its Dex desktop surroundings, and it really works nice. The Wi-fi Dex software permits your telephone to wi-fi mirror onto a appropriate show utilizing display share, display mirroring, or Miracast. The distinctive desktop expertise is extra comparable with the Chrome OS however is rapidly and arguably one of the best ways to change information out of your smartphone to your desktop of selection, whether or not it is Home windows, Linux, or macOS. There are just a few compatibility necessities to make use of Dex. First, you want to discover a appropriate show. Samsung is a worldwide chief with its Good TVs show know-how, so if you’re unsure of which TV is appropriate with DEX, you’ll be able to both go to the Samsung web site or click on your Dex software in your S21 telephone then click on the extra info hyperlink. You probably have a TV that helps display mirroring, display sharing, or Miracast, attempt that earlier than investing in a brand new TV.

One of the vital notable options for Samsung wi-fi textual content is you can plug in a normal USB keyboard or mouse into one of many USBs into the again of the television, and this lets you use them as enter gadgets, turning your telephone into a pc or use a Bluetooth Keyboard and mouse. The wi-fi textual content helps enterprise customers multitask on a number of purposes as they’re all open concurrently to work collectively to look aspect by aspect and seem as purposes do like on a Home windows PC. In case you want, you should use an adapter like a USB-C to sort A adapter and plug it in your telephone. The adapters could be most useful in case your TV solely has one USB enter, or you would activate the ‘use telephone as touchpad’ as a mouse and preserve your USB enter slot open.

I’ve had points previously, the place some telephones could be unusable when display mirroring or plugged right into a appropriate laptop computer out of your telephone. The S21 Extremely can also be absolutely practical whereas display mirroring. Which means you’ll be able to name, textual content, and anything with out going out and in of the Dex app. Now, that sounds suited to the enterprise. You possibly can even use purposes like Snapchat to take photographs of your self and textual content again when taking a break or enjoying easy video games like Sweet Crush, which appears playable with no lag for me, however a recreation like Name of Obligation Cellular is not going to work through Dex.

Once I was utilizing the Dex software and enjoying again a random 4K video of nature, I didn’t discover any stuttering, latency points, or body drop, even when enjoying round on my telephone. Sure, which means you’ll be able to even be on a video name in your telephone and see your self and the decision contributors on the monitor with out encountering any latency.

So, that what a fantastic signal, which implies you’ll be able to share photographs and movies, slideshows, and different wanted work for creators and enterprise duties. While you play the video or audio file, you’ll hear the audio from the TV you might be display sharing on, not the gadget. So, no have to pair it with a Bluetooth gadget except wanted.

With the addition of S-Pen assist and a much-improved Dex expertise, enterprise customers will probably be proud of the useability of the brand new S21 Extremely. From no latency video calling to a number of purposes up whereas nonetheless enjoying in your telephone, all the way in which to utilizing wired or wi-fi keyboard and mouse.

Enterprise-grade safety and reliability

With distributed and distant work changing into the brand new commonplace, enhancing the performance and safety of groups scattered worldwide is crucial. Many delicate work streams run off our telephones. These streams embrace delicate info like firm financials, product roadmaps, and extra. The Samsung Galaxy S21 protects in opposition to fault and side-channel assaults utilizing multilayered safety on the software program and {hardware} ranges. Samsung permits the safe reminiscence to retailer delicate knowledge safely by inputting privateness options like non-public sharing to allow the person to have protected information. Whether or not which means sharing pictures, movies, paperwork with pals, colleagues, or shoppers with out worrying about them entering into the fallacious arms, this removes metadata and offers the customers the choice to set a timer for a way lengthy somebody has a picture, video, or doc. As I discussed earlier than in my S21 base mannequin assessment, please consider this like Snapchat; you’ll be able to share photographs and movies for a brief length till it disappears from the opposite person’s gadget completely.

Samsung’s signature defense-grade safety platform is named Samsung Knox Vault and built-in into the SoC. How Samsung does that is by including tamper-resistant safe reminiscence to allow the additional layer of safety. The tamper-resistant reminiscence permits gadgets to be managed and safe all through its life cycles to assist arrange Enterprise Options. If the gadget was to be misplaced, encryption allows the gadget’s content material inaccessible till it is discovered. If completely misplaced, then you’ll be able to disable the gadget utilizing Knox. All these options make the Galaxy S21 Extremely one of the safe smartphones. Knox makes use of the fingerprint reader, which has improved moderately considerably with 1.7x extra biometric knowledge captured, 77% bigger fingerprinted reader space, and 50% sooner to learn, and it exhibits. Samsung introduced a greater approach of securing info for all companies worldwide with the Galaxy S21.


The S21 line comes with three rear unimaginable cameras to pair with the gadget. The 12MP Extremely-Extensive F2.2 digicam, 12MP Extensive-angle Twin Pixel AF F1.Eight digicam, and Telephoto 64MP Optic 3x F2.zero digicam is unmatched on the subject of every other mobile gadget available on the market. The digicam will get an improve because the entrance digicam is now a 40MP Section Detection AF F2.2 digicam joined with a quad-camera as a substitute of a triple rear digicam of the opposite two fashions. In case you’re like me, you might have Zoom, Groups, & WebEx conferences every day of the week, and the upgraded selfie cam will make for a sharper video conferencing expertise. Different digicam options embrace a 12MP Extremely-Extensive Twin Pixel AF F2.2, 10MP Telephoto Twin Pixel AF F2.Four with Optical 3x, 108MP Extensive-angle Section Detection AF F1.8, and final however not least, a Telephoto 10MP Twin Pixel AF F4.9 with Optical 10x. The S21 Extremely additionally permits 100X Area Zoom and a laser AF Sensor for higher stability. Samsung additionally made positive to name out its first-ever 4K 60FPS on all cameras. Moreover, the telephone is 8K appropriate at 24 fps.

With all, the flexibility to make use of so many choices with zooming in 10x, 30x, and even 100x will enable the a number of AI cameras in real-time to report from the rear and front-facing cameras on the identical time utilizing the ‘Administrators View’ and ‘Vlogger view.’ I might see this being utilized by many in the course of the pandemic, resembling electricians, plumbers, and others in an industrial-related area when needing to ship recordings with an overlay to clarify intimately about points when social distancing at somebody’s dwelling. Moreover, the flexibility to zoom in whereas utilizing night time mode to take photographs or movies of equipment or fixing areas will probably be a lot simpler. These capabilities assist employees collaborate with their colleagues and whom they’re serving to. The numerous choices that enable the enterprise employee to succeed in out via social media and their communities with no skilled digicam crew to ship high-quality footage from their telephone and the talents to edit and ship via self-promotion have by no means been extra comfy and cost-effective. Lastly, social media influencers are all the craze today and doubtless will probably be till the tip of days. In case you do not care about having ‘blue’ textual content and genuinely wish to put money into your content material manufacturing, this telephone has all of it made and prepared for you.

Moreover, the brand new Multi-Mic Recording can make the most of each the Galaxy Buds Professional to ship exact and responsive video calls in case you selected to go down that path. You want the very best in noise cancellation and pair skill to go in your conferences or simply sitting at your desk with out others listening to any interruptions within the background. 

Battery life

Despite the fact that the S21 Extremely makes use of some power-hungry elements just like the WQHD+ 120Hz show and the large 5000mAh battery, this telephone will final all day, even with Dex’s occasional use and enjoying video games. The S21 lineup provides a max charging of 25 watts, that means inside 30 minutes, you’ll have 50% battery life. The telephones assist wi-fi charging at 15 watts and reverse charging for Galaxy Buds on the telephone’s again at solely 4.5 watts. As I discussed in my earlier client assessment of the S21 and S21 Extremely, the battery life will enhance additional time because the telephone optimizes based mostly on how and whenever you use it. 

The flexibility to cost your Galaxy Buds and cost your telephone in lower than an hour makes all of the distinction between being a sitting duck at work or blazing via the to-do checklist. Once more, I can see many enterprise employees benefitting from utilizing the S21 Extremely. Particularly industrial employees utilizing this telephone for the battery’s longevity whereas spending 12+ hours a day within the area.

Wrapping up

In my view, the brand new Galaxy S21 Enterprise Version goes to provide enterprise customers loads of efficiency and options to enhance their collaboration and productiveness massively. Samsung is doing all it could to encourage extra collaboration and proceed to ship connectivity to everybody’s work expertise by saying the Galaxy S21 Enterprise Version. The brand new gadget is agile sufficient to go well with numerous enterprise customers starting from social media influencers, hybrid-working staff, these within the industrial settings, and even those that are beginning up or sustaining a enterprise to self-promote. The Enterprise Version is an entire package deal of cell know-how and companies. That is why Galaxy S21 provides the newest and most exceptional connectivity applied sciences like ultra-wideband, Wi-Fi 6E, and 5G.

The S21 Extremely means that you can carry what you are promoting in your pocket and work seamlessly. With Dex, you’ll be able to full an e-mail you began in your telephone or drag and drop information between your telephone and PC. You possibly can ship information to your colleagues, could that be pictures, movies, or slideshows, with out the considered your information entering into the fallacious arms with Samsung’s signature defense-grade know-how – Knox Vault. Moreover, with Enterprise Version, you get a full 12 months of Knox suite free at no extra or incremental value with renewal reductions. A two-year product lifecycle with assured SMR assist for 5 years, 4 years of month-to-month updates one 12 months of quarterly updates. The Galaxy S21 Extremely is a tool that gives ultra-premium safety, connectivity, and efficiency for an unmatched work expertise.
