A new year and here we have three new Samsung flagship phones sporting the best the South Korean behemoth has to offer. The newcomers are the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra. These ship with either Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100 chipset based on the market where you buy them from. The one with the ultra moniker comes with an S Pen, which is a first for the S-series. From the leaked renders, we have already seen the new cases that hold the pen. Two things that you won’t be seeing are the charger and an earphone inside the box. The rumors were true. Samsung has followed Apple’s lead in ditching the adapter stating, “sustainable” reasons.

Aside from phones, the company has also brought out a new pair of TWS buds called Galaxy Buds Pro and a tiny Bluetooth tracker called SmartTag. Let’s begin with a look at how much they all cost.
