Samsung Electronics Co. introduced its latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S21, Thursday at a streaming event tied to the CES 2021 tech show.

The 6.2- and 6.7-inch 5G-compatible phones come with faster chips and a better camera that allows the editing of objects from photos via artificial intelligence. Samsung is taking preorders for the phones, which ship Jan. 29.

A higher-end Galaxy S21 Ultra has enhanced pen stylus specs and cameras. The 6.8-inch phone is priced at $1,199 and available Jan. 29.

The streaming event also marked the launch of Galaxy Buds Pro, new wireless headphones, and Galaxy SmartTags, a Bluetooth tracker similar to Tile.
