  • 5G connectivity as standard: meaning ultra-fast downloads and faultless streaming.
  • A super-fast 5nm processor: the latest Exynos 2100 chipset with Android 11 for high-performance multitasking.
  • Triple camera: a 64MP telephoto, a 12 MP main and ultra-wide lens and a 10 MP selfie camera lets you capture every moment with stunning clarity. AI editing means one take is all you need to Insta your life into a work of art.
  • 8K Video Snap @ 60fps: for smoother, cinematic filming of those epic moments. You can even get 33MP pics out of every recording and switch to Director View and Vlogger View for clever camera work.
  • Super Smooth 120Hz display: for high resolution, smooth scrolling and lag-free gaming.
  • Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor lets you unlock faster than ever, even if your fingers are dry.

What else?

  • 30x digital zoom lets you get up close and personal and the Zoom Lock gives you stability as you view.
  • Super Fast Charging, Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 and Wireless PowerShare means you’ll never lose touch for too long. 25W charging takes your phone about 180 mins to fully charge.

The S21+ and S21 Ultra also come in Phantom Gold & Red and Phantom Black & Silver respectively.

Not all colours may be available from all mobile networks in Ireland. Shop around if you have a particular colour in mind.

How much does the Samsung Galaxy S21 cost?

It depends on which model you choose and how much storage you need, so we’ve summarised prices to help you compare.

Model 128 GB 256 GB 512GB  
Samsung Galaxy S21 €879 €929    
Samsung Galaxy S21+ €1,089 €1,139    
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra €1,299 €1,349 €1,479

If you can’t afford to pay upfront, take a look at Ireland’s top mobile networks and go for a bill pay deal to spread the cost.

Why is the Samsung Galaxy S21 cheaper than the Galaxy S20?

The Samsung Galaxy 21 is around €150 cheaper than the Galaxy S20 was at launch. The specification is very similar but the main differences are:

  • Build: the S21 has a Gorilla Glass front and plastic ‘Glasstic’ back instead of a full glass body
  • Memory: the S21 does not have a microSD card slot
  • Display: the S21 has a lower resolution screen at 1080 x 2400 pixels
  • Memory: the S21 has only 8GB RAM compared to 12GB

How to find the best Samsung Galaxy S21 offer

If you’ve decided that the Samsung Galaxy S21 series is the right for you, you’ll want to find the best plan and network. Take into account these factors:

  • Budget: Work out how much you can afford to spend each month and what you can you pay upfront. You may be able to find a deal with a free handset but you’ll have to pay more per month.
  • Data: Unlimited data plans are gaining popularity. If you opt for a cheaper, data-limited plan make sure the monthly cap is enough. The average smartphone user gets through about 5GB per month.
  • Length of contract Bill pay phones are often on 24-month contracts, whereas SIM-only plans usually last 30 days or 12 months.

What about the Galaxy S21 Plus?

The Galaxy S21 Plus is bigger than the standard S21, but most features are the same. Here are the differences:

  • a bigger 6.7” display
  • a longer-lasting 4800 mAh battery
  • Ultra-wideband support (UWB) for better tracking
  • available in Phantom Black, Red & Gold

No, the Samsung Galaxy S21 no longer includes a charger.

Does the Samsung Galaxy S21 come with headphones?
