At its live launch today, Samsung said its cameras enhanced light-balancing will ensure it picks up your natural skin tone in any conditions – including at night – the moment you flip the camera around and snap a selfie.
The brand says it has improved its camera's portrait mode so you 'pop' in the frame.
The portrait mode will still work when you take a selfie, blurring the background and automatically separating the subject from the background to look like a professional photographer has taken your picture.
Samsung has boosted its phones' night-time and low-light photography capabilities – so you can snap clearer shots when nights out with pals are a reality again.
The new laser auto-focus macro feature can detect when an object is 30cm away.
What that means is if you're into taking pics of your lockdown banana bread-baking skills to post on the grid – the camera has been designed to adjust automatically to know you're snapping food porn.
Another new feature will enable you to take clearer screen-shots from video filmed on the S21's camera, so you can save candid moments to your camera roll.
Both the S21 and the S21+ come with a triple rear camera system.
On the S21 Ultra, there is a quad rear camera system (four lenses).
S21 prices start at £749, the S21+ at £949 and the S21 Ultra starts at £1,149.

Samsung says its ear buds feature state-ofthe-art -wind detection, meaning it won't mistake weather sounds for conversation.
The 360-degree audio can detect head movements, so when you move your head from side to side, the ear buds re-calibrate so you are in the centre of the sound.

Samsung Galaxy SmartTags
'Galaxy SmartTags' can be attached to your most valuable items – like your house keys or dog – and tracked using your phone's bluetooth when they go missing.
The tags, which retail at £29, are also designed to use other people's smartphones nearby to trace lost items once activated.
So if you were to, say, lose your bag on a bus – SmartTags would use other people's phones that also have the app SmartThings Find downloaded, to track the tag as it moves away from your phone's range.
