Samsung has a lot of smartphones planned for next year and as was the case in past years, Samsung will kick off the 2021 with a flagship release, which in this case will be the Galaxy S21 lineup. And as is the case with all premium category smartphones, rumors about the Galaxy S21 have started circulating much before the launch date, suggesting specs, release date, and availability of the smartphone. And while most of what’s leaked on the internet are expected to true, there happens to be some confusion about the release date.
We reported Samsung will announce the Galaxy S21 on January 14, with shipping starting from January 29. Android Headlines, however, disputes this claim as the publication claimed to have received some details about the release date from a “trustworthy source,” according to whom, Samsung Galaxy S21 series will be released in the month of February and not January as reported earlier. However, the publication didn’t give a specific date, and that means we still confused about the launch date, and now it looks like we’ll have to wait until Samsung gives the actual date.
Samsung Galaxy S21 lineup will include three models — Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra. As per previous rumors, the Galaxy S21 and S21+ will use a flat display panel, while the most expensive one that’s the S21 Ultra will feature a curved display panel. Galaxy S21 Ultra will feature a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a screen refresh rate of 144Hz. The size of the bezels on all sides will be the same in the S21 lineup. The S21 will have three cameras at the back and one selfie camera, housing which will be a punch hole camera cutout. The S21 Ultra will pack a 108MP primary rear camera, a 40MP front-facing camera, and a 5,000mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy S21 lineup will be powered by Snapdragon 875 and will be based on OneUI 3.0.
