While the public expects the release of the Galaxy Note 20 line in August, the Korean company Samsung is already preparing the flagships of next year. Information about the Galaxy S21 series has already begun to appear on the network.
Galaxy U is the internal codename of the upcoming Galaxy S21 series
This time, the details were shared by the famous insider Ice Universe in the Chinese social network Weibo. According to the source, the series got its internal name during the development which is “Galaxy U”. In addition, Samsung set as its goal to release the series at a lower price for users. For buyers, the price reduction looks attractive, but the company will have to make a number of compromises for this.
Samsung is seriously considering creating a “flagship” with simplified features. So, the basic Galaxy S21 model can get a Full HD+ screen with a refresh rate of only 60 Hz. Compared with the flagship Galaxy S20, this is a noticeable step back. For users who want to get the best S21 model, the insider advised considering buying a Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Galaxy S21 will be cheaper than its predecessor
Also, in order to reduce costs, the company may abandon the expensive Snapdragon 875 platform and completely switch to Exynos branded line for all markets. Earlier it was also reported that Samsung may abandon the Snapdragon 875 and use the Snapdragon 865, as in the flagships of 2020 for the United States and China. Another possible source of savings is the delivery of smartphones without a charger in the box.
Ice Universe regularly publishes information about future updates with a high level of reliability, including Samsung flagships. Last year’s Galaxy Note10 line was no exception. He predicted the announcement of the Samsung ISOCELL GN1 image sensor, which was introduced a few days after that. Ice Universe also predicted the appearance on the market of Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha with a surrounded screen.
It is reported that there will still be three models of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series. And what’s more interesting they should come with under-screen camera technology for the first time, and support Qualcomm ultrasonic under-screen fingerprint 3.0 technology. Apart from this, there are large improvements in other areas and performance. We have also heard that the Samsung Galaxy S21 will come with a new main camera of 150MP resolution. Plus, the front camera will have a new lens. We expect the new series to officially hit the market in the first quarter of next year. Interestingly, the phones may arrive with the Samsung Galaxy S30 moniker.
Recall that the official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will take place on August 5, and we expect sales to start on August 27.
