Samsung Galaxy S21 Series, Galaxy Buds Pro, And Galaxy SmartTag In A Flash
Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, And Galaxy S21 Ultra
The new Samsung Galaxy S21 flagship phones bring several new features to the table. First up is the all-new back design which sees a refined camera bump that doesn’t stick out as much as their predecessors. Then there’s the customary performance upgrade with the latest and greatest mobile chipset. In Malaysia, Samsung’s own Exynos 2100 chipset will be powering the devices.
All three units come 5G-ready. Though 5G is not expected to arrive for the masses in Malaysia for one or two more years, it is good to have a future-proof device in hand when it does eventually come. In the camera department, both the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ offer three lenses, whereas you will find as many as five lenses on the back of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which also features a 40MP selfie shooter and a huge 5,000mAh battery.
Samsung is also bringing S-Pen support to the Galaxy S21 Ultra, a first outside the Galaxy Note series. The optional stylus is sold separately, and you can get a special phone case from Samsung which has a slot to store it. Another important thing to take note of is that Samsung will not be packaging a charger plug and a wired earphone in the box together with the phone.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro
The Galaxy Buds Pro is Samsung’s attempt to take on Apple’s AirPods Pro, and it offers its best active noise cancelling (ANC) technology yet. Some highlight features include Voice Detect that instantly switches from ANC to Ambient mode when it hears your voice; 360 Audio which uses Dolby Head Tracking technology to give you a cinema-like audio experience; and Auto Switch which automatically switches connection between paired devices without the need for any intervention.
Samsung Galaxy SmartTag
If you constantly find yourself misplacing your items, you will want something like the Galaxy SmartTag. The tiny Bluetooth tracker can be easily attached to your essentials like keys, wallet, bags, or just about anything you can think of. It helps you locate your lost tagged item by emitting a sound within the Bluetooth range. Additionally, you can use the Galaxy Find Network feature on your Galaxy device to pinpoint its whereabouts. Bonus feature: You can even use it to control various supported smart home devices.
Samsung’s Early Release Sets The Pace For Flagship Smartphones in 2021
Samsung has thrown in early contenders to the ring for the title of best Android smartphone of 2021. In Malaysia, the Samsung Galaxy S21 series’ price will certainly be talked about, but there is no doubting the quality you get in both hardware and software. The devices will inevitably face fierce competition once the smartphone floodgates start to open up. It is still very early days, but that didn’t prevent the Korean giants from quickly firing the first salvo. Expect other manufacturers to step up and give their best fight in what could be another exciting year for smartphones!
