Samsung is organizing an Unpacked event this Thursday January 14, 2021 at 4 p.m. (Paris) to unveil the Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra. We offer you the live video broadcast as well as the best content on the Samsung news announced.
The presentation conference of the Galaxy S21, S21 + and Ultra as well as the SmartTags trackers kicks off a year which, like 2020, should be marked by the coronavirus pandemic. The event will therefore be virtual, as have been the keynotes in the industry for several months..
The Galaxy S21, S21 + and Ultra are similar to the Galaxy S20 presented last year. We find the same smartphone-screen with a punch for the selfie sensor centered at the top of the panel. The biggest cosmetic changes are at the rear. Samsung has in fact redesigned the photo module and should offer more attractive colors.

A breath of fresh air as all the manufacturers seemed to be going in circles, drawing inspiration from each other for several generations. New smartphones should lack a microSD port – a first for the range. They should nevertheless support the S-Pen.
This should further marginalize Note sales, and perhaps heralds the imminent disappearance of this range. As for photo sensors, we have known for weeks that Samsung should offer, at least on the Ultra model, a 10 Mpx dual telephoto lens.
To believe a very detailed leak, this double zoom is “Faster, smoother, more precise than any zoom in a Galaxy”. On their side, SmartTags should look like Tile or Wistiki trackers to find your keys and other items.
According to the first images, these devices look surprisingly large, but we will undoubtedly have a pleasant surprise when they are presented. Samsung is expected to offer them in two variants, SmartTag and SmartTag +.
If we do not yet know what the second version really has in addition, we observe that the manufacturers of this type of object sell disposable versions as well as more durable versions where the battery can be changed.
