Samsung is set to announce the new Galaxy S21 range this afternoon at the company’s first Unpacked 2021 event of the year. So far, the brand is finding it hard to keep things on the down-low. Not only did the entire range leak online last week along with specs of the camera and the different models but now Vodacom has published the device’s retail price and contract offerings too.
Twitter user Peche Africa spotted the listing on the official Vodacom store where they have the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G up for R17,499. In addition, the listing includes contract offerings starting at R649 and going up to R3,108. In particular, there’s an R699 x 36-month contract.

Samsung is calling the flagship colour for the Galaxy S21 and S21+ 5G “Phantom Violet”. The company has opted for a flat display across both models this year. They will include a punch-hole front-facing camera. The gold bezels extend up both sides of the device and merge into the camera module. The S21 and S21 Plus include a triple camera setup with a 12MP main sensor, 12MP ultrawide, and a 64MP telephoto lens. The flash is now situated off of the camera module. The differences between the standard Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21+ 5G will be the screen size and battery capacity.
Keep in mind, however, that Samsung has a number of devices they are announcing today including the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra. This Vodacom listing all but proves that Samsung has yet again done a terrible job keeping the secret a secret. You can watch the Unpacked event here. The stream starts at 17:00 SAT.
