Samsung Galaxy S21: Ultra 5G

The Samsung Galaxy S21, with all its offshoots, is official. We have summarized everything you need to know about the new Galaxy smartphones.

After a lot of leaks, Samsung’s newest flagship is official. Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S21 will appear in three versions. A normal, a larger “plus” variant and, of course, the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Since all three devices are a glass sandwich, we save ourselves the marketing pictures and come straight to the technical data.

Galaxy S21 Series – Go Big Or Go Home

If you take a closer look at the three Galaxy S21 models’ technical data, the S21 Plus looks a bit like the unloved middle child. Besides the display size (and the battery), it only differs from its little brother in terms of price. Practice will show whether other differences will emerge beyond this.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra, on the other hand, seems to differ from the “normal” S21 primarily through its cameras. In terms of price, Samsung has stayed on the carpet for all three models.

More toys from Samsung

In addition to the three new Galaxy S21 smartphones, Samsung also had two accessory products at the presentation – the Galaxy Buds Pro and the Galaxy SmartTags. The Buds are the successor to the well-known TWS from Samsung. The new model is characterized by new 2-way loudspeakers, ANC, IPX7 water protection, and an inductively chargeable charging case.

The Galaxy SmartTags should allow you to find misplaced or lost items. Via Bluetooth from your smartphone allows users to find objects with the Galaxy SmartTags or the Galaxy Buds Pro. The tags are protected against water and dust, according to IP534. According to Samsung, the tags are operated with replaceable batteries, which are even included in the scope of delivery.

If you pre-order a Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra between January 15th and January 28th, 2021, you will receive both the Galaxy Buds Pro and two Galaxy SmartTags. If you pre-order a Samsung Galaxy S21 (Plus), you will get the Smart Tags and the Galaxy Buds Live.

What do you think of the new line-up from Samsung? Is your next smartphone a Galaxy S21, or are you waiting for more foldable smartphones?
