  • Samsung's new Galaxy S21 smartphones bring high-end features down to earth

    8 days ago - By Fast Company

    After going for broke with last year's Galaxy S20 line, Samsung is putting similar features in more affordable models.
    When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra last February -its first all-5G lineup-they didn't merely follow the classic good, better, best strategy. Instead, each model went so far beyond the previous Galaxy S10 line that it felt like Samsung had decided to do high end, really high end, and incredibly high end. The catch was that the prices, which started at $1,000 for the S20 and went up to $1,399 for the S20 Ultra, were high-end, too.

  • Samsung promises new phones will deliver more for less money

    8 days ago - By Chron

    SAN RAMON, Calif. - Samsung's next crop of smartphones will boast bigger screens, better cameras, and longer-lasting batteries at lower prices than last year's lineup that came out just before the pandemic toppled the economy.
    The three Galaxy S21 phones unveiled Thursday at a virtual event will face some of the same challenges in an economy still hobbled by a crisis that has left millions of people unemployed and forced millions of others to do their jobs or attend school from their homes.
    But this time Samsung has made some pricing adjustments that reflect the hard times.

    Samsung's Galaxy S21 line arrives with camera bumps, price drops and S Pen compatibility

    8 days ago - By Tech Crunch

    Samsung wasted no time this year. With Mobile World Congress pushed back six or so months, the hardware maker hitched its wagon to the tail end of the CES whirlwind - though unlike its press conference earlier in the week, the company is very much on its own for the latest Unpacked.
    And why not? In spite of broader issues with the mobile industry (certainly not helped by the COVID-19 pandemic), the Galaxy line is still very much a draw. People may not be as eager to buy a flagship as they were a couple of years ago, but when they do, it's frequently a Samsung device.

    This morning's S21 announcement found Samsung dropping $200 off the price of its flagship smartphone, and here the Galaxy Buds come in at $50 cheaper than the AirPods' asking price. It's not clearance-bin pricing exactly, but $199 is a pretty reasonable starting price. And Samsung's earbud track record is a pretty good...
