Since Samsung can’t keep a secret like Apple can, we knew just about all there was to know about the new family of Galaxy phones long before this week’s official presentation. However, one thing that was a surprise was the prices. And it’s a pleasant one! Each of the 3 new models is USD200 cheaper than the previous generation! For example, the S20 Ultra was USD1,400, while the S21 Ultra is USD1,200 (actually, USD1,199.99). All three models have an eight-core, 5nm 2.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, and all support 5G. The S21 has a 6.2-inch 2400×1080 424ppi display, while the S21+ has a 6.7-inch display with the same number of pixels (definition of 393ppi). The S21 Ultra has a 6.8-inch 3200×1440 516ppi display. Besides the larger display, the Ultra also supports Wi-Fi 6E and sports no less than 5 rear cameras, including a 108MP Main (!) and a laser autofocus. Another nice thing about the Ultra is its compatibility with Samsung’s Wacom technology-based S-Pen. All three models will be in stores on January 29.

Ars Technica, Ron Amadeo, “The Galaxy S21 is official, gets an across-the-board $200 price drop.”
