There have been reports on Samsung possibly launching the Galaxy S21 series in January this time. Samsung usually launches its flagship Galaxy S smartphones in February just ahead of the Mobile World Congress (MWC). But with no MWC this time, Samsung could do an early launch. A recent report by a South Korean publication also suggested Samsung could launch the Galaxy S21 series sometime mid-January.
Samsung has reportedly begun mass production of the Galaxy S21 series with the Galaxy S21 Ultra having started by last week already. Galaxy S21 Plus is next in line followed by the Galaxy S21.
This year too, three Galaxy S21 smartphones are expected with the ‘Ultra’ variant that Samsung introduced last year with the Galaxy S20 series. Galaxy S21 Ultra’s leaked specs reveal Qualcomm Snapdragon 875/Exynos 2100 chipset, a 108-megapixel primary camera, and a 5,000mAh battery. The smartphone could also launch with Android 11-based One UI 3.0 out-of-the-box.
