Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra: Best launch deals, pricing, trade-in values, and availability

Samsung just revealed the Galaxy S21 series, consisting of three phones and the company’s best mobile cameras to date. Just like last year, there are three models to choose from, ranging from the smallest S21 to the behemoth S21 Ultra. However, the phones are still roughly as expensive as the S20 series, so finding the best deal possible could save you hundreds of dollars.

In this roundup, we’ll go over all the ways you can buy the Galaxy S21 series in the United States, including both carrier versions and carrier-unlocked phones.

Samsung is selling the S21 series through its online store, carrier-unlocked for use on any major US network. The Galaxy S21 is $799.99, S21+ is $999.99, and the S21 Ultra is $1,199.99.
