OTHER AVAILABLE TESTS FOR THIS DEVICE

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G (Snapdragon) is Samsung’s S-series flagship for the Chinese and North American markets. The device is built around Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 888 chipset instead of the Exynos variant used in most regions, but otherwise tech specs are largely identical, including the specs of the audio components.

Audio specifications include:

  • Two AKG speakers (one top side-firing and one bottom side-firing)
  • Surround sound with Dolby Atmos technology (Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus included)
  • Zoom-in recording using three microphones
  • Dual Audio (user can connect two Bluetooth devices for simultaneous playback)

With the two devices sharing the same audio specs, one would expect the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G (Snapdragon) test results and scores to be identical to those of the Exynos version. We have confirmed this by putting the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G (Snapdragon) through the complete DXOMARK Audio test protocol.
