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 sincere with ourselves, the increasing frustration from a disgruntled journalist at not being able to physically go to a major tech program often results in a moody post and ramblings which will most likely be of little interest to you readers.
And the concept of writing yet another short article on the reaction of the tech giants exhibiting at CES 2021 in the post-Covid “new normal” period 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 diary excerpt. Instead, Im going back to what interests me: innovation.
On Thursday, January 14th, Samsung will unveil its new high-end smart device, the Galaxy S21. Whatever people say throughout the entire fanboy spectrum, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is the first flagship of 2021 and most likely the most excitedly waited for Android smart device in the technosphere as of right now.
I dont desire any more boring, generic Samsung flagships
The reason Im eluding a lot is to highlight how tiring the high-end smart device market has actually been to me. I dont have another word for it. And the smart device that has epitomized this boring-ness, by not being outstanding in any method is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20.
You currently understand the song, youve probably had the ability to review much of my articles what I consider this device. “Lack of ambition/20” or “Galaxy Nothankyou 20”, thats how I entitled review test at the release of its pedecessors

I am all right with a four-digit rate tag. I am cool if I need to resell my present handset and iPad 2019 to raise some funds. However Im not going to invest the equivalent of 2 months minimum wage to buy a high-end smart device. On the other hand, I do not want to completely lose sight of this market section either. I dont have an “ideological” rejection of flagships. Im not opposed on concept to the idea of a smartphone being more pricey than others just since it remains in a various class.
Seriously, I cant see myself remaining sane if the only smartphones available to the typical individual are the 25 mid-range variations of Realme and some other rebranded Redmi handsets. No, I still want to have an interest in flagships, but only if theyre interesting enough. Why focus everything on one item, make it the foundation of its annual balance sheet, the basic bearer of its knowledge, if it is reserved for just 1% of consumers?
A smart device is not a luxury product. It is even thought about as an essential good today.
A flagship should have an approach of being accessible to everybody. Not a populist program, however popular by choice and is by no ways elitist. And, in spite of the credibility of being anti-Samsung that Ive gained since I joined NextPit, I remain optimistic and believe 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 reanimate the really principle of a flagship smartphone. At the minimum, I hope so.
Its nearly here. Stay tuned for the #ExynosOn. #Exynos _ is_back https://t.co/bEfaV2qxWv pic.twitter.com/kqJGxNy4MN– Samsung Exynos (@SamsungExynos).
January 12, 2021.
Even if all of these demands, which I present in the manner of a ruined kid, come real by some miracle, they will be in vain if the Samsung Galaxy S21 stays unaffordable.
I desire 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 typical. But I would likewise like to advise you that the smart device that made me dream the most this year and even rekindled a tip of hope in my now-numb heart is also a Samsung design: the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
As gorgeous as the couple of weeks I invested with this gem in my hands were, I constantly knew full well that this was an above-ground product, one that was not made for me, which was even created so that I might not manage to own one.
With the Samsung Galaxy S21, I desire a REAL flagship. What I suggest by that is, I do not want 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 want a flagship that slaps a EUR2,000 cost tag in my face so that I can wish to feel even a little emotion, enjoyment and wonder about an item. Do not get me wrong, Im not hoping for an affordable flagship, the lockdown and self-quarantine measures have not made me go entirely out of my mind yet. But I want a flagship that makes me dream while being available to the typical customer.
For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not want the base model to attempt to show off an ugly plastic back. 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 versions, and not just the possible Plus, Ultra or GigaProMax versions. If I want to take benefit of a crucial function, please dont blackmail me into selecting the most costly designs. If the Galaxy S lineup is going to take in the Note in the future, I want the Galaxy S21 to make a tidy break and not a quiet transition. Samsung cant do things in halves, particularly not this year.
Speaking of mobile phones in its standard format, when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S21, I dont desire the most innovative device manufacturer on the market for many years now to bend to the ignorant and unbearably self-righteous position of Apple by offering its charger separately. This is not a genuine effort or an ethical choice to conserve the planet. Its a insidious and dishonest marketing strategy to increase ones margins by using the consumers emotions and blackmailing them at the expense of ones carbon footprint.
For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I dont want to feel like Im being fooled with my European variation of the Exynos compared to the Americans and their Snapdragon variation. I understand Samsungs persistence on its exclusive chip and I appreciate it. In truth, the producer has listened well (in a manner, at least based on dripped benchmark outcomes) to the complaints of users and testers.
Samsung understands that it can not continue to market 2 various variations with various efficiency levels but at the same cost. As soon as again mark a self-evident and clear development, the Samsung Galaxy S21 must. The Exynos vs Snapdragon dispute must no longer exist and Samsung has no choice however to reverse the trend and develop a surprise.
Whatever individuals say across the entire fanboy spectrum, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is the first flagship of 2021 and probably the most excitedly waited for Android smartphone in the technosphere as of right now. For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I dont desire the base design to dare to reveal off an ugly plastic back. For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I desire the S-Pen to be a default alternative on all versions, and not just the possible Plus, Ultra or GigaProMax versions. Speaking of mobile phones in its basic format, when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not want 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 charger individually. For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not want to feel like Im being tricked with my European variation of the Exynos compared to the Americans and their Snapdragon variation.
