Samsung held its first Unpacked event of 2021, during which it announced a new lineup of phones and earbuds, up for preorder January 14. We break down what you need to know about the Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra, Galaxy Buds Pro, and Galaxy SmarTag.

The Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra — the successors to the Galaxy S20 family — arrive with a new design highlighted, faster processor, continued 5G support and camera updates.

If you preorder a Galaxy S21, S21+ or S21 Ultra by January 28, you’ll score a Galaxy SmartTag and a $100 credit with the Galaxy S21, a $150 credit with the S21 or a $200 credit with S21 Ultra.

The surprise from this Unpacked would have to be the Galaxy SmartTag. It’s Samsung’s new Bluetooth tracker that works with SmartThings.

If you’re preordering a Galaxy S21, S21+ or S21 Ultra, you’ll get one of these trackers for free.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra features a refreshed design with a camera housing that matches the frame of the smartphone.

On the front, the S21 Ultra features a 40-megapixel camera, which we expect to outpace other Android smartphones.

Lastly, the S21 Ultra is getting S Pen support, making it the first Galaxy phone besides the Note to support Samsung’s stylus.

You can take a previous S Pen from a Galaxy Note or even a Galaxy Tab. Samsung will sell both an S Pen and an S Pen Pro to pair with the S21 Ultra in the coming months.

The Galaxy Buds Pro are shaping up to be Samsung’s most premium and feature-packed wireless earbuds yet, and could give Apple’s AirPods Pro a run for their money.

The Buds Pro’s noise-canceling abilities could be its most important feature, as Samsung is promising that its new earbuds can reduce background noise by up to 99 percent.

Other key software features include Auto Switch, which lets you seamlessly bounce between multiple Galaxy phones and tablets while using the Buds Pro without having to re-pair them, and 360 Audio with Dolby Head Tracking for enjoying immersive, 360-degree sound on supported movies and shows.

Factor in an IPX7 water resistance rating that allows the Buds Pro to survive rain and sweat and SmartThings Find support for locating the buds via your Android phone when you lose them, and Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro could give our picks for the best true wireless earbuds a serious run for their money.

Unlike the Tile trackers, which work with Android and iOS alike, the Galaxy SmartTag was designed to work with Galaxy devices from the ground up.
