Samsung will finally launch its flagship Galaxy S21 series today at its first ‘Unpacked' event of the year. Samsung's flagship smartphone series is expected to feature the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Samsung is hosting its Unpacked event later tonight at 10:00 pm EST which is 8:30 pm for Indian viewers. Samsung's Galaxy S21 event is also taking place tonight at 8:00 pm alongside the global launch. Both events will be livestreamed on Samsung's YouTube channel, social handles, and official website.

Samsung has tried to keep the Galaxy S21 series under wraps but all three smartphones have been showing up in multiple leaks and reports leaving nothing to the imagination. Galaxy S21 series will feature a new and thick camera design similar to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. It will come in colour options of purple, pink, black, white, gray, red, blue and even brown.

In terms of specifications, we'll most likely see the new Exynos 2100 processor on the Galaxy S21 series. We're also expecting Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 processor for select markets. Galaxy S21 Ultra which will be the most premium offering in the series is expected to feature a 108-megapixel quad camera and S Pen support. Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ will offer the same camera specifications based on leaks.

Samsung is also expected to remove the in-box charger and earphones for the Galaxy S21 series. Leaked marketing images of the phones show a slimmer box without these accessories.

In addition to the new smartphones, Samsung is also expected to launch a new TWS, Galaxy Buds Pro and its first smart tracker, Galaxy Smart Tag. Accessories such as a wireless charging pad are also expected at tonight's Unpacked event.
