Yes, were in the middle of CES 2021, but were also on the eve of the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21. Let us be truthful with ourselves, the rising disappointment from a disgruntled journalist at not having the ability to physically go to a significant tech show typically leads to a moody post and ramblings which will most probably be of little interest to you readers.
And the concept of composing yet another short article on the action of the tech giants exhibiting at CES 2021 in the post-Covid “new normal” age makes my hair stand on end as I seem like Ive been harping about this style for months. No, today, there will be no introspection, no journal excerpt. Instead, Im returning to what interests me: technology.
On Thursday, January 14th, Samsung will reveal its new high-end smartphone, the Galaxy S21. Whatever individuals say throughout the whole fanboy spectrum, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is the first flagship of 2021 and probably the most eagerly awaited Android smartphone in the technosphere as of right now.
I dont want any more boring, generic Samsung flagships
The factor Im beating around the bush so much is to show how tiring the high-end mobile phone market has been to me. I do not have another word for it. And the smartphone that has represented this boring-ness, by not being outstanding in any method is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20.
You already know the song, youve probably had the ability to go through many of my short articles what I consider this gadget. “Lack of ambition/20” or “Galaxy Nothankyou 20”, thats how I entitled evaluation test at the release of its pedecessors

But even if all of these needs, which I provide in the way of a spoiled kid, become a reality by some miracle, they will fail if the Samsung Galaxy S21 remains unaffordable.
I want a Samsung Galaxy S21 that makes all of my dreams come to life and is accessible.
Ive been bitching about it a lot in this short article, as usual. I would likewise like to advise you that the mobile phone that made me dream the most this year and even rekindled a hint of hope in my now-numb heart is likewise a Samsung model: the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
As beautiful as the few weeks I invested with this gem in my hands were, I constantly understood full well that this was an above-ground item, one that was not made for me, which was even developed so that I might not pay for to own one.
With the Samsung Galaxy S21, I want a REAL flagship. What I suggest by that is, I do not want an unattainable technological showcase that holds out the possibility of a trickle-down of a development that will take 5 years to become commonplace.
Nor do I desire a flagship that slaps a EUR2,000 price in my face so that I can intend to feel even a little emotion, excitement and wonder about an item. Dont get me wrong, Im not hoping for a budget-friendly flagship, the lockdown and self-quarantine procedures have not made me go completely out of my mind. However I want a flagship that makes me dream while being accessible to the typical consumer.
For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I dont desire the base design to dare to show off an awful plastic back. It doesnt matter how sophisticated the plastic or polymer alloy is, and it does not matter how wonderfully matte and classy the upholstery is. I want glass, I desire a bold and original design, I want curves and not a flat screen, I wish to see some risks taken, duration! And the design teased by the leakers and Samsung itself has so far made me optimistic.
For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I desire the S-Pen to be a default option on all variants, and not simply the possible Plus, Ultra or GigaProMax variations. Samsung cant do things in halves, especially not this year.
Speaking of mobile phones in its basic format, when it pertains to the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not desire the most ingenious device manufacturer on the market for many years now to flex to the naive and unbearably self-righteous position of Apple by offering its battery charger separately. This is not an ethical choice or a genuine effort to conserve the planet. Its a insidious and unethical marketing strategy to increase ones margins by playing on the customers feelings and blackmailing them at the cost of ones carbon footprint.
For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I dont desire to feel like Im being fooled with my European version of the Exynos compared to the Americans and their Snapdragon variation. I comprehend Samsungs persistence on its proprietary chip and I respect it. In fact, the producer has listened well (in a manner, a minimum of based on dripped benchmark results) to the complaints of testers and users.
Samsung knows that it can not continue to market two different versions with various efficiency levels but at the very same rate. The Samsung Galaxy S21 should as soon as again mark a unquestionable and clear development. The Exynos vs Snapdragon debate must no longer exist and Samsung has no choice but to reverse the trend and create a surprise.
Whatever people say across the entire fanboy spectrum, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is the very 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 desire the base design to attempt to reveal off an awful plastic back. For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I want the S-Pen to be a default choice on all versions, and not just 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 innovative gadget producer on the market for years now to bend to the unbearably self-righteous and ignorant position of Apple by offering its battery charger separately. For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I dont want to feel like Im being tricked with my European version of the Exynos compared to the Americans and their Snapdragon variation.

January 12, 2021.
I am all right with a four-digit cost. I am cool if I need to resell my existing handset and iPad 2019 to raise some funds. However Im not going to spend the equivalent of 2 months minimum wage to purchase a high-end smart device. On the other hand, I do not desire to absolutely lose sight of this market sector either. I dont have an “ideological” rejection of flagships. Im not opposed on principle to the concept of a smart device being more pricey than others just since it remains in a various class.
Seriously, I cant see myself remaining sane if the only smart devices available to the typical 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 everything on one product, make it the cornerstone of its yearly balance sheet, the standard bearer of its know-how, if it is scheduled for just 1% of consumers?
A smart device is not a high-end item. It is even thought about as a necessary great today.
But a flagship ought to have an approach of being available to everyone. Not a populist program, however popular by choice and is by no methods elitist. And, despite the reputation of being anti-Samsung that Ive reaped given that I joined NextPit, I stay optimistic and think in Samsung to break the regimen of the high-end or flagship market.
The Galaxy S21 could not just mark a revival at Samsung, but it might likewise reanimate the really concept of a flagship smartphone. At the really least, I hope so.
