Samsung Galaxy S21 has created quite a buzz online, and the rumor mill has not been kind to it. Many features and specs have been doing rounds on the Internet lately, leaving the next Galaxy series stripped down.
The hottest reports, however, indicate possible launch dates and other release windows possibilities. A fresh report claimed that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 series would debut much earlier than usual.
Here is what you need to know.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Rumored Launch Date
The newest report comes from a reliable tipster, Jon Prosser. He has offered the launch dates for the next Galaxy series, including some pre-order dates.
Prosser’s Twitter post also hints at the Samsung Galaxy S21’s color options and the available variants. According to that, we should expect three models, including Samsung Galaxy S21, the standard version, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus, and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra – similar to what we’ve got this year from the praised Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup.
The tipster said that Samsung would be hosting the Galaxy Unpacked event next year, on January 14, with pre-orders starting the same day.
The sale of the new Samsung Galaxy S21 lineup will begin two weeks later, most likely at the end of the month, on January 29.
Besides the launch dates, Prosser also discussed the color options of the upcoming smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S21 series will most likely ship in white, grey, silver, black, violet, and pink color shades. The list doesn’t include the praised Mystic Bronze, but we might see a couple of color variants for select regions.
So far, reports have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S21 lineup will flaunt an Infinity-O panel with a hole-punch cutout. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus is tipped to feature a sleek triple-camera module, while the Samsung Galaxy S21 Pro will house a quad-camera setup.
Under the hood, the smartphones are expected to draw their power from the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 chipset or the Exynos 2100 processor.
For now, Samsung hasn’t been officially confirmed any of those specs. So, it’s better if we take everything with a pinch of salt.
