Samsung S21, Galaxy Buds Pro Preorder

  Samsung S21, Galaxy Buds Pro Preorder Samsung held its first Unpacked event of 2021, during which it announced a new lineup of phones and earbuds, up for preorder January 14. We break down what you need to know about the Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra, Galaxy Buds Pro, and Galaxy SmarTag.The Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra — the successors to the Galaxy S20 family — arrive with a new design highlighted, faster processor, continued 5G support and camera updates. The Galaxy Buds Pro, the long-rumored high-end true wireless earbuds, boast ANC support and a voice detect mode. Most surprising, though, is the Galaxy SmartTag, a Bluetooth tracker designed from the ground up to work with Galaxy smartphones.

Today, Samsung’s latest Chromebook goes on sale in the Galaxy Chromebook 2, but based on some new leaks, Samsung is planning to release two new Windows laptops with built-in S-Pens.

Based on a new report from Sammobile, the new Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 will be available in both 13 and 15-inch sizes, with the latter model even featuring optional 5G connectivity.

The Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 were first spied about a month ago after receiving BT 5.1 certification from the Bluetooth SIG. Similar to last year’s Galaxy Chromebook, the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 are expected to feature vibrant OLED displays with possible 90Hz refresh rates— components that would definitely help separate Samsung’s new Windows laptops from typical productivity fare.

Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, S21 Ultra arrive Jan. 29 with new design, $200 price cut

  Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, S21 Ultra arrive Jan. 29 with new design, $200 price cut The lineup starts at $800 instead of last year's $1,000. And the Ultra supports an optional $40 S Pen accessory.The South Korean electronics giant on Thursday, during its first virtual Unpacked event of the year, showed off its three new phones : the $800 Galaxy S21, the $1,000 Galaxy S21 Plus and the $1,200 Galaxy S21 Ultra. (In the UK, the S21 will start at £769, just £30 cheaper than the S20.) It also unveiled new $200 earbuds, called the Galaxy Buds Pro; $30 Tile-like Galaxy SmartTags that can track nonelectronic items like pets; and a $40 S Pen accessory. The event took place on the last day of this year's CES and more than a month earlier than normal.

And in keeping with one goal espoused by Samsung mobile chief TM Roh in a blog post late last year, the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro will likely come with stylus support via a built-in S-Pen, which means users should get a drawing and notetaking experience similar to what’s available on a Galaxy Note phone.

Over the past couple of years, Samsung has been making a concerted effort to expand its laptop and PC offerings, with laptops like last year’s Galaxy Book Flex being a nice return to form, and now it seems Samsung is looking to continue that momentum with a new line of Windows laptops.

Unfortunately, there isn’t much info about pricing or a release date. But with Samsung having already applied for and received a number of important certifications, an official launch may not be that far off. And considering its “Pro” branding, with Samsung having launched the Galaxy Book Flex 2 5G at the very end of 2020, these upcoming Galaxy laptops could end up being even more premium systems meant to sit at the top of Samsung’s notebook lineup.
