It’s finally happening: The Galaxy S21 flagship series goes on sale today


Last updated: January 29th, 2021 at 07:41 UTC+01:00

Galaxy S21 pre-order customers may have been feeling like time was slowing down on them but it’s only been a couple of weeks since the flagship series was unveiled at Unpacked 2021. Now the waiting is over, as today — January 29 — is the day when Samsung starts shipping the latest flagship phones to customers.

Meanwhile, those who haven’t pre-ordered the Galaxy S21 can now purchase the phone outright from Samsung’s online shop as well as partner retailers and carriers. Buyers can no longer take advantage of early adopter benefits, so anyone who might want to use the new Galaxy SmartTag will have to buy one separately.

How much does the Galaxy S21 series cost?

The Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra are available for purchase beginning today and prices will differ more or less according to each region. In major markets, the base model costs $799 / €849 / £769 while the Galaxy S21+ has a price tag of $999 / €1,049 / £949. The top-tier Galaxy S21 Ultra which we recently reviewed is priced at $1,199 / €1,249 / £1,149.

As a quick reminder — or newsflash if you’ve been living under a rock, which could be true for most of us given how 2020 went — the Galaxy S21 series no longer ships with a pair of wired earbuds and a wall charger in the box. These accessories can be purchased separately along with a ton of others. There are numerous cases to choose from and for the first time in the history of the Galaxy S series, there’s an S Pen accessory designed specifically for the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

You can refer to the links below for key Galaxy S21 news and resources, and readers who have already acquired the latest flagship are more than welcomed to share their first impressions in the comment section below.
