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 rising disappointment from a disgruntled journalist at not having the ability to physically participate in a significant tech show typically 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 showing at CES 2021 in the post-Covid “brand-new typical” age makes my hair stand on end as I feel like Ive been harping about this style for months. No, today, there will be no introspection, no journal excerpt. Rather, Im returning to what interests me: technology.
On Thursday, January 14th, Samsung will unveil its new high-end mobile phone, the Galaxy S21. Whatever individuals state across the entire fanboy spectrum, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is the first flagship of 2021 and probably the most excitedly awaited Android smartphone in the technosphere as of right now.
I dont desire any more boring, generic Samsung flagships
The factor Im eluding a lot is to highlight how tiring the high-end smartphone market has actually been to me. I dont 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 most likely had the ability to check out much of my posts what I believe of this device. “Lack of ambition/20” or “Galaxy Nothankyou 20”, thats how I entitled evaluation test at the release of its pedecessors

Whatever people state throughout the whole fanboy spectrum, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is the first flagship of 2021 and most likely the most excitedly awaited Android smartphone in the technosphere as of right now. For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not want the base model to attempt to reveal off an awful plastic back. For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I want the S-Pen to be a default alternative on all versions, and not just the possible Plus, Ultra or GigaProMax variations. Speaking of smartphones in its basic format, when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not desire the most innovative device maker on the market for years now to bend to the naive and unbearably self-righteous position of Apple by selling its battery charger independently. 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 am all right with a four-digit price. If I require to resell my current handset and iPad 2019 to raise some funds, I am cool. However Im not going to invest the equivalent of 2 months base pay to buy a high-end smart device. On the other hand, I dont wish to completely lose sight of this market section either. I dont have an “ideological” rejection of flagships. Im not opposed on concept to the concept of a smartphone being more expensive than others just because it is in a various class.
Seriously, I cant see myself staying sane if the only smartphones readily available to the typical individual are the 25 mid-range versions of Realme and some other rebranded Redmi handsets. No, I still wish to have an interest in flagships, but just if theyre interesting enough. Why focus whatever on one product, make it the foundation of its annual balance sheet, the standard bearer of its knowledge, if it is reserved for just 1% of customers?
A mobile phone is not a high-end product. It is even considered as an essential great today.
A flagship should have an approach of being accessible to everyone. Not a populist agenda, but popular by choice and is by no methods elitist. And, despite the track record of being anti-Samsung that Ive gained since I signed up with NextPit, I remain optimistic and believe in Samsung to break the regimen of the high-end or flagship market.
The Galaxy S21 could not just mark a revival at Samsung, however it might also resurrect the extremely principle of a flagship smartphone. At the very least, I hope so.
Even if all of these demands, which I present in the way of a spoiled kid, come real by some wonder, they will be in vain if the Samsung Galaxy S21 stays unaffordable.
I want a Samsung Galaxy S21 that makes all of my dreams come true and is accessible.
Ive been bitching about it a lot in this post, as typical. But I would likewise like to remind you that the mobile phone that made me dream the most this year and even revived a hint of hope in my now-numb heart is likewise a Samsung design: the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
However as lovely as the few weeks I invested with this jewel in my hands were, I always knew full well that this was an above-ground item, one that was not produced me, which was even created so that I could not manage to own one.
With the Samsung Galaxy S21, I want a REAL flagship. What I indicate by that is, I dont want an unattainable technological display that holds out the possibility of a trickle-down of an innovation that will take 5 years to end up being commonplace.
Nor do I desire a flagship that slaps a EUR2,000 cost tag in my face so that I can want to feel even a little emotion, enjoyment and question an item. Do not get me incorrect, Im not hoping for an economical flagship, the lockdown and self-quarantine procedures have not made me go entirely out of my mind. But I desire a flagship that makes me dream while being accessible to the average consumer.
For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not want the base model to dare to reveal off an ugly plastic back. And the style teased by the leakers and Samsung itself has so far made me positive.
For the Samsung Galaxy S21, I desire the S-Pen to be a default option on all variations, and not just the possible Plus, Ultra or GigaProMax variations. Please dont blackmail me into selecting the most pricey models if I desire to make the most of a crucial function. If the Galaxy S lineup is going to take in the Note in the future, I desire the Galaxy S21 to make a clean break and not a peaceful shift. Samsung cant do things in halves, particularly not this year.
Speaking of mobile phones in its basic format, when it pertains to the Samsung Galaxy S21, I dont want the most innovative gadget producer on the marketplace for several years now to bend to the ignorant and unbearably self-righteous position of Apple by selling its battery charger individually. This is not a sincere effort or an ethical option to conserve the planet. Its a unethical and perilous marketing strategy to increase ones margins by playing on the customers feelings and blackmailing them at the expense of ones carbon footprint.
Finally, for the Samsung Galaxy S21, I do not want to seem 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 proprietary chip and I appreciate it. The manufacturer has listened well (in a method, at least based on dripped benchmark outcomes) to the complaints of users and testers.
Samsung knows that it can not continue to market two various variations with different efficiency levels however at the same cost. The Samsung Galaxy S21 need to when again mark a clear and undeniable breakthrough. The Exynos vs Snapdragon dispute must no longer exist and Samsung has no option however to reverse the pattern and create a surprise.
Its nearly here. Stay tuned for the #ExynosOn. #Exynos _ is_back https://t.co/bEfaV2qxWv pic.twitter.com/kqJGxNy4MN– Samsung Exynos (@SamsungExynos).
