According to the Korean media, Samsung decided to start production of its new generation flagship model the Samsung Galaxy S21 series in order to fill the gap in Huawei as soon as possible and deal with the pressure of Apple’s iPhone 12 series. So the source claims, it will be released and listed one and a half months in advance.
As some industry sources report, Samsung Electronics has decided to hold its Galaxy S21 global launch event in January next year. It will officially launch the series from late January to early February at the latest.
As we all know, the Galaxy S series usually has a launch event in February or March each year. Then, they go on sale in March or mid-April. However, the Galaxy S20 was released on February 12. It went on sale on March 6. So it turns out the Galaxy S21 will come one and a half months earlier than this practice.
A Korean smartphone industry representative said: ‘Samsung Electronics will soon begin mass production of this series of models in factories in Gumi, North Gyeongsang Province and Vietnam.’
Insiders revealed that Samsung Electronics plans to counter Apple’s latest iPhone 12 series by listing the Galaxy S21 in advance, while locking in Huawei’s vacant market share.
In addition, since people expect the new coronavirus epidemic to continue until next year, Samsung Electronics should flexibly schedule the release of new products within this approximate time.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Key Features
As for the phone itself, the most powerful version will be the Galaxy S21 Ultra. It will sport a large 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen, a 5000mAh battery and a 40-megapixel front camera. The main camera will offer four sensors, where the key one will have a 108-megapixel resolution. The Galaxy S21 Ultra models should be running the Android 11 operating system with One UI 3.0 user interface.
We expect that the display refresh rate will be 120Hz. Also, the smartphone should run the Exynos 2100 processor or Snapdragon 875 (depending on the region of sale).
