Samsung Galaxy S21-series announcement coverage wrap-up

Ro, 14 January 2021

It sure was a busy day, as is becoming a tradition when Samsung holds one of its Unpacked events. The company announced another a trio of flagship models alongside the Galaxy Buds Pro with smarter ANC and even better audio quality, and the Smart Tag trackers.
