    Galaxy S21 series pricing is going to be both good and bad

    The Galaxy S21 series' exact launch price is one of the final pieces of the puzzle. Samsung's flagship phones have been in an upwards launch price trajectory for a few years now, so perhaps many fans of the brand are expecting the Galaxy S21 to continue this trend. However, the upcoming flagship might break the cycle, at least to an extent.

    This is because two out of three Galaxy S21 models will be priced lower than their predecessors, according to our colleagues at GalaxyClub citing credible sources with an accurate track record. So, if the latest chunk of info is correct then Samsung will be releasing the base Galaxy S21 5G model with 128GB of storage for 879 EUR.

    In contrast, the Galaxy S20 5G was released in most European countries for 999 EUR. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S21+ 5G will reportedly hit the shelves along with a price tag of 1,079, whereas the Galaxy S20+ 5G debuted for 1,099 EUR.

    Samsung is offsetting this with a higher price for the top-tier model

    Although prospective Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ buyers seemingly have reasons to celebrate, Samsung isn't going to offer the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G the same price reduction treatment. On the contrary, sources suggest that the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G with 128GB of storage will launch for 1,399 EUR. For reference, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G was released for 1,349 EUR.

    Samsung will probably justify the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G's higher price tag with the addition of a digitizer that brings compatibility with the S Pen, as well as the inclusion of a secondary zoom camera. Whether or not it will be worth it remains to be seen, and thankfully we won't have to wait much longer before we find out. The Galaxy S21 series should be unveiled on January 14.
