Samsung Galaxy S21 price
The phones start at $799.99 for the Galaxy S21, $999.99 for the Galaxy S21 Plus, and $1,199.99 for the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Those are cheaper price tags than Samsung’s 2020 Galaxy S20 series, which are always welcome. Samsung says that the price difference can largely be attributed to maturing 5G technology.
As usual, Samsung has some incentives for preorders, which include $200 in Samsung credit and a free Galaxy SmartTag. Samsung and some carriers also have trade-in program that let you trade in your old phone to reduce the price of a Galaxy S21 device.
Samsung Galaxy S21 features
Samsung has overhauled its usual smartphone design for the new Galaxy S21 series, including flat screens for the S21 and S21 Plus compared to curved screens from previous models. The backs of the Galaxy S21 series are also getting the matte glass texture treatment compared to Samsung’s traditional clear glass.
And who could miss the fancy new camera module design that wraps around the top left corner of the Galaxy S21 phones? It’s a unique look compared to the usual plaques we often see on smartphone camera models, and it helps the Galaxy S21 series stand out among the crowd.
The Galaxy S21 series is getting the full 120Hz screen refresh rate treatment that’s largely expected on high-end phones these days, which makes for a smooth look and feel when navigating around Android and apps. Samsung also added a new Eye Comfort Shield feature to each S21 model that automatically adjusts the screen’s color temperature based on the time of day. The screen will have a brighter, cooler tone that transitions to a warmer tone as the day wears on.
And of course, the cameras got some attention, too. Save for the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s new quad-lens system, there’s nothing too remarkably different with the camera hardware itself, but Samsung added some new features that could prove handy for certain users. Namely, the new Director’s View shows you what each camera lens sees in small thumbnails and lets you switch between lenses while you’re recording video. There’s also a Vlogger View that records video with both the rear and front cameras …read more
