Yes, were in the middle of CES 2021, however were also on the eve of the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21. Let us be honest with ourselves, the increasing aggravation from a dissatisfied reporter at not being able to physically participate in a significant tech show frequently results in a moody post and ramblings which will most likely be of little interest to you readers.
And the idea of writing yet another article on the action of the tech giants displaying at CES 2021 in the post-Covid “brand-new typical” period makes my hair stand on end as I feel like Ive been harping about this style for months. No, this week, there will be no self-questioning, no diary excerpt. Instead, Im going back to what interests me: technology.
On Thursday, January 14th, Samsung will reveal its brand-new high-end smart device, the Galaxy S21. Whatever people state across the entire fanboy spectrum, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is the very first flagship of 2021 and probably the most eagerly waited for Android smartphone in the technosphere as of right now.
I dont desire anymore boring, generic Samsung flagships
The reason Im eluding so much is to illustrate how tiring the high-end smart device market has been to me. I do not have another word for it. And the smart device that has characterized this boring-ness, by not being impressive in any way is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20.
You already know the song, youve probably been able to go through a number of my articles what I believe of this gadget. “Lack of ambition/20” or “Galaxy Nothankyou 20”, thats how I entitled review test at the release of its pedecessors

For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I dont desire the base model to dare to show off an awful plastic back. And the style teased by the leakers and Samsung itself has actually so far made me positive.
For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I desire the S-Pen to be a default alternative on all variations, and not just the possible Plus, Ultra or GigaProMax variations. Samsung cant do things in halves, especially not this year.
Mentioning smartphones in its basic format, when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not want the most ingenious device producer on the marketplace for several years now to flex to the unbearably self-righteous and naive position of Apple by offering its charger separately. This is not a genuine effort or an ethical option to save the world. Its a perilous and deceitful marketing technique to increase ones margins by using the customers emotions and blackmailing them at the expense of ones carbon footprint.
For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I dont want to feel like Im being deceived with my European variation of the Exynos compared to the Americans and their Snapdragon variation. I comprehend Samsungs persistence on its exclusive chip and I respect it. In fact, the producer has listened well (in such a way, at least based on leaked benchmark results) to the problems of testers and users.
Samsung understands that it can not continue to market 2 various versions with different performance levels but at the very same cost. When again mark a self-evident and clear breakthrough, the Samsung Galaxy S21 must. The Exynos vs Snapdragon dispute need to no longer exist and Samsung has no choice however to reverse the pattern and produce a surprise.
Whatever people say across the whole fanboy spectrum, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is the first flagship of 2021 and most likely the most eagerly awaited Android mobile phone in the technosphere as of right now. For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I dont want the base model to dare to reveal off an ugly plastic back. For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I desire the S-Pen to be a default choice on all variations, and not simply the possible Plus, Ultra or GigaProMax variations. Speaking of smart devices in its basic format, when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not desire the most ingenious gadget maker on the market for years now to bend to the naive and unbearably self-righteous position of Apple by selling its battery charger separately. For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not want to feel like Im being fooled with my European variation of the Exynos compared to the Americans and their Snapdragon version.
Even if all of these needs, which I provide in the way of a ruined child, come real by some miracle, they will be in vain if the Samsung Galaxy S21 remains unaffordable.
I want a Samsung Galaxy S21 that makes all of my dreams become a reality and is accessible.
Ive been bitching about it a lot in this short article, as typical. I would likewise like to remind you that the smart device that made me dream the most this year and even revived a tip of hope in my now-numb heart is likewise a Samsung design: the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
As lovely as the few weeks I spent with this jewel in my hands were, I always understood complete well that this was an above-ground item, one that was not made for me, which was even designed so that I could not pay for to own one.
With the Samsung Galaxy S21, I want a REAL flagship. What I mean by that is, I do not desire an unattainable technological display that holds out the possibility of a trickle-down of an innovation that will take 5 years to become commonplace.
Nor do I desire a flagship that slaps a EUR2,000 rate tag in my face so that I can intend to feel even a little emotion, excitement and question a product. Dont get me incorrect, Im not hoping for a budget-friendly flagship, the lockdown and self-quarantine measures have not made me go completely out of my mind. I desire a flagship that makes me dream while being available to the average consumer.
Im not going to invest the equivalent of 2 months minimum wage to buy a high-end smartphone. On the other hand, I dont desire to completely lose sight of this market segment either. Im not opposed on principle to the idea of a smart device being more expensive than others simply because it is in a different class.
Seriously, I cant see myself staying sane if the only smart devices available to the average individual are the 25 mid-range versions of Realme and some other rebranded Redmi handsets. No, I still wish to be interested in flagships, however just if theyre intriguing enough. Why focus whatever on one item, make it the foundation of its yearly balance sheet, the basic bearer of its knowledge, if it is reserved for only 1% of consumers?
A smartphone is not a high-end item. It is even considered as an essential excellent today.
A flagship should have a viewpoint of being accessible to everybody. Not a populist program, but popular by choice and is by no means elitist. And, regardless of the reputation of being anti-Samsung that Ive gained considering that I joined NextPit, I stay optimistic and think in Samsung to break the routine of the high-end or flagship market.
The Galaxy S21 might not just mark a revival at Samsung, however it might also resurrect the really idea of a flagship smart device. At least, I hope so.
