Samsung Galaxy S21 unveiling


It's time! Samsung is expected to introduce three different versions of its Samsung Galaxy S21 and we'll have the stream, all the news and analysis right here!

The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G had one job: Be better than last year's Galaxy S20 Ultra. The Galaxy S21 Ultra, while just as bold, is a refined second take on the Ultra concept. There is still the 100 times "space zoom." But it's easier to use. There is still the "big for sake of being big" design, but it looks much more appealing. And there is still a high price, but at $1,200 it costs $200 less than the S20 Ultra.
Samsung cut $200 off the price of all three Galaxy S21 phones. The Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus come with a bunch of upgrades and refinements, including a striking new color scheme. But aside from their price, the phones aren't massively different from their S20 counterparts. In fact, it seems Samsung scaled back on certain specs and features. We take a look at the tradeoffs that were made to hit that lower price.
The new Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy SmartTag have arrived. We unbox the new Samsung devices and share our hands-on impressions of the new phones and tracker. We compare the S21 to last year's S20 and the S21 Ultra to the S20 Ultra.
The Galaxy S21 along with the Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra make up the 2021 S series lineup. In the US, Samsung was able to cut $200 off the price of all three phones. The company wisely moved the Galaxy S21 away from the uber-premium Galaxy S20 and closer to the Galaxy S20 FE.
