Samsung has unveiled its latest range of flagship smartphones, with three models ranging in price from £769 ($799) to £1,149 ($1,199). 

The S21 range from the South Korean tech giant features an entry-level model, the mid-range Plus, and the Ultra - which is the first S Series phone to be compatible with the Samsung's S-Pen stylus.

The stand-out feature on all three devices is the upgraded rear camera system, which was heavily leaked ahead of today's announcement and features night and portrait mode as well as its 100x 'space zoom'.  

Pre-orders of the handsets open today, and the phones will be available as of January 29.

Screen size varies depending on the model, increasing from 6.1 inches on the entry-level device up to 6.7 inches on the Plus and 6.8 inches for the Ultra. 

The bigger body also means the larger models pack a bigger battery.

The smallest of the three is 4,000mAh whereas the Plus and Ultra have a 4,800 and 5,000 mAh powerpack, respectively. 

All three phones have Samsung's fingerprint recognition security.  

The 5G-compatible phones also come with a rapid refresh rate of 120Hz to allow for smooth scrolling, viewing and gaming.

The standard S21 is the only one which does not support ultra-wideband (UWB) technology. 

They all feature a dynamic AMOLED 2x display which Samsung says will be perfectly suited to gaming.  

Samsung is also introducing '8K video snap' which allows users to take pictures from short 8K quality video recorded on the handset at 60 frames per second. 

For the first time on a Galaxy device, the Ultra also brings 4K video recording capability, again at 60fps, and the ability to save it as a 12-bit RAW file so none of the quality is lost.  

All three models come with new Eye Comfort Shield technology which Samsung claims reduces the amount of harmful blue light produced by the screen.

The S21 and Plus both have a 10MP front camera whereas the Ultra has a monstrous 40MP sensor, for example
