It's been a few months since Samsung launched its Galaxy S21 family of smartphones, which means that attention is starting to shift towards the next iteration of the Fan Edition. Luckily for us, some new information has come down the news pipeline concerning the Galaxy S21 FE, and it could be a compelling entry into the fiercely competitive smartphone market. Although the Galaxy S21 FE looks quite familiar to those that have already laid their eyes upon the standard Galaxy S21, there are some slight differences according to renders provided by OnLeaks. The Galaxy S21 FE is slightly larger than the Galaxy S21, adding 4mm in length and 3.3mm in width. The Galaxy S21 FE is also said to include a... Read more...
Premium smartphone prices have ballooned over the past several years, and hey, we get it—paying north of a grand for a handset is a tough proposition. Fortunately, periodic sales, discounts, and promotions help take some of the sting out of buying a top-end device. To that end, Samsung's venerable Galaxy S21 family is marked down on Amazon right now. What you see pictured above is the regular Galaxy S21 5G. You can check out our Samsung Galaxy S21 5G review for our full analysis and benchmark details, but in short, it offers excellent performance, a killer OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, stellar photo taking capabilities, and all things considered, a decent value proposition. That's... Read more...
When Samsung first introduced its new Galaxy S21 5G line-up, the company took a similar good, better, best approach to its previous generation launch. Like the Galaxy S20, the new Galaxy S21 lineup consists of a base device, a mid-tier device and a top-end model, though all of them can be considered "flagship" phones among Samsung's large and varied handset product offerings. However, for the Galaxy S21 launch, it was clear that Samsung was more focused on value at all tiers this time around, with pricing starting at $799 and topping out $1199 for the Galaxy S21 Ultra, representing a $200 price cut across the board versus its previous generation Galaxy S20 family. What's even more exciting... Read more...
On Monday, we brought you news of some very enticing deals on Samsung's new Galaxy S21 family. Amazon took $100 off the already attractively priced Galaxy S21, which brought its starting price to just $699. Likewise, both the Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra are available for $200 off, taking them to $799 and $999 respectively. However, Amazon is now extending its discount spree to the Galaxy Buds Pro wireless earbuds, which were announced alongside the Galaxy S21 family. The Galaxy Buds Pro typically retail for $199, but when purchased with the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ or Galaxy S21 Ultra, you'll get them for just $100. First, you'll want to add either of these three devices to your... Read more...
The ink is barely dry on the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 family of Snapdragon 888-powered smartphones, but as is often the case when new flagships launch, there are already some sweet discounts available for bargain shoppers. When the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra launched last month, they were priced from $799, $999, and $1,199 respectively. Today's deal, however, sees those prices fall by up to $200 if you opt for the pricier members of the Galaxy S21 family. Starting things off is the Galaxy S21, which is already a good bargain at $799. That price gets you a 6.2-inch FHD+ display (2400x1080), a Snapdragon 888 SoC, 12GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a... Read more...
Samsung has long dreamed of the modern smartphone extending its usefulness to more PC-like use cases, such as functions you might otherwise drive on a desktop or laptop. To that end, the company has poured resources into DeX, a Chrome OS-like interface that works remarkably well with a traditional keyboard and mouse. Last fall, we really dug this feature as part of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus, where DeX added tons of utility to an otherwise-barren Android tablet landscape. DeX isn't just for tablets, though; the Galaxy S phone lineup has long supported it. A new feature of Samsung's new Galaxy S21 series of devices should make running in DeX mode much easier via wireless connectivity. Samsung... Read more...
Samsung's new Galaxy S21 family of smartphones have been leaking like crazy for the past few months, so at this point, most details have already been made available. However, Samsung this morning made its Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra official, and it has also revealed the full specs and features rundown along with some interesting surprises when it comes to pricing. So, let's get started... Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ The first members of the family are the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+, which are of course replacing the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+. The new smartphones largely share the same feature set, with the Galaxy S21+ being the larger of the two devices. The Galaxy S21 has a... Read more...
In just a few more days—January 14, the last day of this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES)—Samsung will host its Unpacked event, starting at 10:00am Eastern (7:00am Pacific). At this point, we have little doubt the company will unveil its much-anticipated Galaxy S21 series of flagship phones (which might actually be cheaper than their predecessors), and there are reason to be both excited and disappointed. Starting with the former, flagship launches from the likes of Apple and Samsung are typically intriguing. Upgraded cameras, faster processors, new features, and usually a few surprises are common when either company launches a new round of top shelf smartphones. The Galaxy... Read more...
Flagship smartphone prices have been creeping higher and higher each year, with devices like the Galaxy S20 and iPhone 12 Pro carrying MSRPs of $999. While many people reason the cost away by paying for the device in relatively low monthly installments, we can't escape that fact that $1,000 is a lot of money to spend for a hunk of metal and glass. Perhaps Samsung has heard these cries, as it is reportedly looking to lower prices on at least two of its incoming Galaxy S21 family of smartphones. This information comes to us from Belgian wireless carrier Voo, which has prematurely listed alleged pricing for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra. Voo lists the smartphones prices at... Read more...
Samsung is set to unveil its new Galaxy S21 family on January 14th, and the company has already started taking reservations for preorders. As is usually the case with its new Galaxy S releases, Samsung will be throwing in some freebies for those early adopters that choose to preorder its latest flagships. According to tipster TheGalox, Samsung will be including a couple of sweet accessories with the preorder purchase of either smartphone. Allegedly, anyone that decides to preorder a Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S21+ will get a set of Galaxy Buds Live wireless earbuds and a Galaxy SmartTag. The Galaxy Buds Live were released earlier this year and have been nicknamed "beans" due to their shape. The... Read more...
It appears the launch of Samsung's Galaxy S family of smartphones gets earlier and earlier each year. This year is no exception, as Samsung this evening confirmed that the Galaxy Unpacked 2021 announcement will take place on January 14th at 10am EST. For those keeping score, the Galaxy 20 family was announced on March 11th, 2020, which means that the Galaxy S21 is being unleashed nearly a month sooner. "Over the past year, mobile technology has taken center stage in everyday life as people are working remotely and spending more time at home," said Samsung upon announcing the Galaxy Unpacked 2021 event. "The accelerated transition to a mobile-first world brings with it the need... Read more...
Yesterday, Samsung dropped its first teaser for the upcoming Galaxy S21 family of smartphones, which are rumored to be announced on January 14th. The Snapdragon 888-powered flagships are likely to be among the best-selling Android flagships of 2021, but new reports suggest that customers will be missing a few features with this generation. First off is what's reportedly missing in the box. Earlier this fall when Apple announced its iPhone 12 family, it removed both the headphones and wall charger from the box. That left customers with just a USB-C to Lightning cable. At the time, Samsung mocked Apple's omission and pointed to the fact that it includes a charger in the box with its smartphones....

Samsung won't be the first manufacturer to field a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform smartphone, but it will likely be the most high-profile. The launch of the Galaxy S21 family is reportedly two weeks away, and Samsung is whetting the appetites of its customers with a teaser for the smartphones. The teaser, entitled "A new Galaxy awaits", starts off by showing the design of the original Galaxy S, which was launched in June 2010. While Samsung had previously released Android smartphones up to that point, the Galaxy S brand is what helped to cement the company as a leader in design and innovation. The video then cycles through the Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III and the... Read more...
Hey, have you heard—Samsung is launching a new flagship phone series, the Galaxy S21, in the very near future. Of course you have heard, because there has been a deluge of leaks and rumors related to the upcoming phone lineup, including official looking press renders. As we get closer to the actual launch, Samsung has begun accepting preorder registrations in the U.S. What exactly is a preorder registration? It is a way of being alerted when preorders go live next month, by providing your contact details to Samsung. As an added bonus, anyone who opts to "reserve now," as Samsung words it, will get a $60 instant credit they can apply to accessories and other items for the Galaxy S21. That... Read more...
Samsung is close to releasing its Galaxy S21 series, and with it will come two system-on-chip (SoC) designs, depending on the territory. In certain markets like the US, the Galaxy S21 will arrive with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 processor sitting pretty inside, while in many other locations, Samsung injects its own Exynos hardware inside its flagship phones. In those locations, the Galaxy S21 will wield Samsung's Exynos 2100 SoC, and some leaked benchmarks give us an idea of what kind of performance it will deliver. In most instances, the Snapdragon variant of Samsung's flagship phones end up outperforming the Exynos counterparts. Will that trend continue when the Galaxy S21 arrives? Well, Qualcomm...

Android fans are awaiting the arrival of Samsung's new flagship smartphone series, the Galaxy S21 series, and there is still no definitive release date set—rumor has it the Galaxy S21 family could be unveiled in January 2021, perhaps around the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) time frame. As we wait, a whole bunch of official looking press renders have leaked to the web. First let's talk about what is on tap from Samsung. If past leaks and rumors pan out, Samsung will launch three models, including the regular Galaxy S21 with a 6.2-inch display, a larger Galaxy S21 Plus with a 6.7-inch screen, and of course the big daddy of the bunch, the Galaxy S21 Ultra with a 6.8-inch screen, all three...

As we wind down what little is left of 2020, Samsung's head of mobile, Dr. TM Roh, penned a blog post waxing poetic on the company's product portfolio and technological developments, like having "led the charge with 5G and changed the shape of the future with a series of foldable smartphones." He also discussed what is store for 2021, promising it will be an "epic new year" with more innovation. So, what can we expect? Let's start with the easy stuff. Dr. Roh said in no uncertain terms that foldable phones are here to stay. Or more precisely, he said Samsung will be expanding its portfolio of foldables, in an effort to make the category more accessible to everyone. This suggests to me that cheaper... Read more...
There have been a bunch of Galaxy S21 teasers over the past several weeks and months, from renders highlighting the design to hands-on impressions that purport to detail some of the hardware and features of Samsung's upcoming flagship. The leaks and rumors are almost over, though, because the Galaxy S21 is launching next month. When it arrives, the US variant is likely to wield a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, as has been previously leaked. This is Qualcomm's latest flagship mobile processor that was recently shown off at an event. According to Qualcomm, the Kryo 680 CPU inside the Snapdragon 888 will deliver up to a 25 percent performance boost versus the Kryo 585 found in the Snapdragon... Read more...
We're fast approaching the launch of Samsung's next-generation Galaxy S21 family of smartphones, and unsurprisingly, details about the devices are coming more into focus. This time around, teasers for all three smartphones -- the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and the Galaxy S21 Ultra -- have all leaked. All three teasers are relatively short, but they confirm some critical details about the cameras on the smartphones and the overall design. The camera pod, which is better integrated and more stylish than before, houses three cameras on the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+. However, we see what looks to be at least four cameras on the back of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which is the flagship of the family.... Read more...
As we come closer to the start of the year 2021, we're beginning to hear more and more about the Galaxy S21 family of flagship smartphones from Samsung. The actual design of the smartphones has already leaked in renders, and we've even seen third-party cases for the smartphones which confirmed the new design. Today, however, we're getting a look at some real-life shots of both the Galaxy S21+ and the flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra. We only see the two smartphones from the rear -- sitting side by side -- which gives us a good look at their camera bumps. The Galaxy S21+ has a smaller camera array, with just three sensors (12MP primary, 12MP ultra-wide, 64MP telephoto). The Galaxy S21... Read more...
Qualcomm this week unveiled its next-gen Snapdragon 888 system-on-chip, a mighty slice of silicon that will power future flagship smartphones, and lo-and-behold there is already some leaked benchmark data highlighting the chip. As you might of guessed, the benchmark numbers reside over at Geekbench's database, a common destination for leaks. Part of what makes the Snapdragon 888 tick is its Kryo 680 CPU. According to Qualcomm, it delivers a 25 percent performance boost compared to the Kryo 585 CPU in the Snapdragon 865. It is based on Arm's powerful Cortex-X1 architecture and can hit clockspeeds of up to 2.84GHz. Additionally, it supports up to 16GB of LPDDR4x-2133 or LPDDR5-3200 memory. The... Read more...
In October, we got to see what appeared to be renders of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S21. The renders showed off a design that represented an evolution of Samsung devices that came before it, so we were not entirely sure if they were real or not. Prominent leaker IceUniverse on Twitter found some evidence that leads us to believe that the Galaxy renders were indeed accurate. He has now tweeted out phone case renders that look exactly like the Galaxy S21 images from October. The main design feature that sets these renders apart is the stack of three cameras with the flash offset to the right. The only time we saw this design was with the October renders, so this must be the Samsung Galaxy... Read more...
