It’s time for the Sunday giveaway! It’s a Samsung Galaxy special this month, with three lucky Android Authority readers having the chance to win Galaxy devices, two of which haven’t even hit the shelves yet.
A big congratulations to the winners of last month’s Xbox Series X, Pixel 4a 5G, and Garmin Vivoactive 4 international giveaway, Jonas J. from Denmark, William W. from the UK, and Sameer B. from India.
The Daily Authority newsletter is a daily briefing focused on bringing you the best tech news and links to what’s happening all around the web. It doesn’t matter if it’s from The Wall Street Journal or the depths of a 41-tweet Twitter thread — we’ll find it, and tell you what it means.
The daily email arrives fresh at around 7 a.m. ET every day, and we’re committed to making sure it entertains with a brief, honest, authoritative, and never-too-serious look at the tech news of the day via our Senior Editor, Tristan Rayner.
First prize: A Samsung Galaxy S21 and an AA t-shirt
Our grand prize winner this month will receive the latest smartphone in the Samsung Galaxy S series. We’re finally able to reveal a lot more about the Samsung Galaxy S21, and there’s a lot to like.
The Galaxy S21 was revealed on January 14 and features a 6.2-inch Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED screen on a flush metal frame. The resolution is the same as on the S21 Plus at 2400 x 1080 pixels and both phones offer a 120Hz display refresh rate.
The base variant of the phone will come with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The S21 will be the first smartphones in the US to launch with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 processor, though the global variant of the devices will be getting Samsung’s own Exynos 2100 chips.

Second prize: A Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and an AA t-shirt
The second prize this month is ideal if you’re looking to get back in your fitness stride after the holidays. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is one of the most well-rounded smartwatches on the market but it’s far from the cheapest. If you’re lucky enough to win the giveaway then that won’t be a concern.
The hardware and software of the Watch 3 are better than ever, though Samsung still has some work to do with fitness tracking accuracy. That said, the advanced running metrics can be super helpful, and the sleep tracking offers useful insights.

Third prize: Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro and an AA t-shirt
Hardly a consolation prize, the third winner this month receives the newly revealed Galaxy Buds Pro.
Each Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro earbud houses a three-mic system with wind noise-reduction, so you should be able to take phone calls outside. A 6.5mm tweeter and 11mm woofer fit inside each casing, and the dual-driver system facilitates clear bass and treble notes. They operate via Bluetooth 5.0 and support the Samsung Scalable codec, AAC, and SBC.
The Galaxy Buds Pro can last up to five hours of playtime with noise-cancelling enabled, and the case provides an extra 13 hours of reserve battery. With ANC disabled, the ‘buds last eight hours, and the case then provides an extra 20 hours of playtime. Once the earphones are completely drained, you need only insert them into the case for three minutes to enjoy 30 minutes of playback.
