The Samsung Galaxy S21 range has landed. It takes the Galaxy experience to new heights, and we’ve got all the details; pricing and special deals you need to make it great.

Next-level specs

This year’s Galaxy S21 is bigger and better than ever. There are three models available to cater for all your screen-loving needs. And all the devices – from the Galaxy S21 5G through to the Galaxy S21+ 5G, right up to the flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G feel great in the hand.

Each device in the range is powered by the fastest processor ever in a Galaxy for a supercharged 5G experience, and a choice of either 128GB or 256GB of storage1.

The range starts with the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G, with a 6.2-inch Infinity-O display. Don’t be fooled, though: just because it’s the smallest in the range doesn’t mean it skimps on the awesome features. The Galaxy S21 5G display features an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate for incredibly smooth streaming and gaming on the go, and a massive 4000mAh battery2 complete with 25W super fast charging (25W charger sold separately) and wireless powershare.

The Galaxy S21 5G also features a triple rear camera with Night Mode and gorgeous 8K video recording3. You even get 3x optical zoom and 30x Space Zoom 2.04 so you don’t miss a thing.

The Galaxy S21+ 5G is slightly larger, with its 6.7-inch Infinity-O display complete with 120Hz adaptive refresh rate for that all-important smoothness. It packs in the same triple rear camera with Night Mode and 8K video recording3, but beefs up the battery to 4800mAh2.

At the top of the range is the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, with all the trimmings.

It features a camera with the highest resolution on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone at a whopping 108-megapixels. It also features four lenses, advanced Night Mode and that brilliant 8K Video Recording3. There’s also a dual-zoom system with a 10x optical zoom, and the incredible 100x Space Zoom 2.04 system alongside it.

Optical zoom looks great on the gorgeous screens, and the Galaxy S21 range really puts the “pro” in Pro-Grade Cameras. The impressive hardware gives way to some awesome software, designed to help photographers and creators at all levels get the shot. From smart modes that take the guesswork out of shooting, through to Director’s Mode which activates an on-device multi-cam setup that makes creating vlogs easy. Along with multiple microphone support and Telstra’s fast 5G5 network for faster uploads, the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is a new standard for content creators.

All that tech fits under a 6.8-inch screen with the adaptive 120Hz display, and it’s powered by a 5000mAh battery2 to keep you going and going.

Security across the range is taken care of with improved ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint readers directly built in, Facial Recognition and Samsung KNOX and each model comes in a range of new colours.

But what’s really awesome is the addition of an old favourite into the Galaxy S line-up.

Meet the S Pen, all over again

That’s right: the Galaxy S21 Ultra is the first model to support Samsung’s S Pen stylus. The S Pen, typically a hallmark of the Samsung Galaxy Note range, is an incredibly powerful tool that lets you express yourself creatively and get more done on the go.

The S Pen (sold separately to the Galaxy S21 Ultra) features a smooth writing experience features a smoother writing experience and allows you to really make the most out of your device.

You can handwrite notes; edit excel documents; annotate images and screenshots and so much more on the go.

It’s a larger S Pen than we’re used to, which feels great in the hand.

And, if you’re upgrading from an older compatible Note model, it reduces the e-waste as you can reuse your S Pen again!

Fast 5G right out of the box

5G is here to stay, and the Galaxy S21 range really cements it with an all-5G lineup. Don’t worry if you’re not in a 5G area, either: the device still features 4G/3G connectivity also.

We’re now in more places than ever with Telstra 5G, so you can experience the true power of the Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra 5G out of the box5. Check our website for coverage, and to find out more about when this awesome tech will be available near you.
