Full details of Samsung's Galaxy S21, S21+ S21 Ultra & their prices

Samsung have just introduced the Galaxy S21, S21+ and the S21 Ultra smartphone, all of which are the successor to the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra of last year. With this year’s Galaxy S-series, Samsung is not only focusing on hardware capability, but also on the design and overall look of the device, with the major noticeable shift in design happening on the rear camera placement.

Unlike the previously launched Galaxy S-series, in the S21-series, Samsung has seamlessly fit the camera bump right into the device metal frame, making it looking entirely different from previous S-series. The front of the phone have not changed much though; all models still retains their traditional screen sizes, and yes, that centrally punched screen is still used on all models, and 5G network is available on all models as well.
