    Samsung will launch its next-generation Galaxy S21 series on January 14. Ahead of the official launch, analysts have predicted bad news for the company's upcoming flagship smartphone series.

    DSCC analyst Ross Young (via GizChina) has predicted that the iPhone 12 series will exceed the upcoming Galaxy S21 series in terms of the shipments in the first three months. Not only does he say that Apple will beat Samsung in the sales record of their flagship series, but he also says that the iPhone 12 Mini, which as per the report is the worst performing of the four iPhone 12 models, will end up performing better than Samsung's unreleased Galaxy S21 smartphone.

    Now, this is a huge claim by the analyst and it is entirely possible that sales figures may not play out as he expects them to. Samsung, as per a report by noted tipster Evan Blass will give the Galaxy Buds Pro true wireless headphones and Galaxy SmartTags tracker to those who order the Galaxy S21 smartphone. Samsung clearly has a strategy in place to lure more customers into buying its upcoming Galaxy S21 series smartphone. So, for all we know, things could end up being entirely different from what is being anticipated.

    Separately, South Korean leaker Landsk says that the Galaxy S21 smartphones could be priced $100 ( 7,300 approximately) less than the predecessor. The tipster says that the Galaxy S21 will start at $850 ( 62,400 approximately), while the Galaxy S21 Plus will start at $1,050 ( 77,100 approximately) and the Galaxy S21 Ultra will start at $1,250 ( 91,780 approximately).
