    With Mobile World Congress pushed back to the summer it seems Samsung wasn’t content to wait to unveil its new Galaxy phones, announcing them today in a virtual Galaxy Unpacked event. This year we’re looking at three models once again, with the S21 sitting as the smallest in the new lineup with a 6.2-inch screen. While we don’t quite know what other companies may have in store for 2021, we know what this new Galaxy flagship is up against right now, and you can check out its specs versus two of its closest competitors, the iPhone 12 Pro and the modest Pixel 5. For a fuller accounting be sure to check out our hands-on, as well as our review later this year.
