A new report suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S21 will launch earlier than expected.
According to SamMobile, Samsung will have separate events for each of its flagship lineups starting next year. The website says its sources from Asia have confirmed the new development. This means Samsung will start with the launch of the Galaxy S21 in January, instead of the traditional February launch, progressing to other phones later.
It may be so because Samsung wants to get rid of the overlapping launch events. This year too, the Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip were both launched in February. A similar overlap was seen at the launch of the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Z Fold. So it won’t be far-fetched to assume that Samsung wants to put some gap between the releases of different lineups.
Samsung might also be trying to take advantage of Huawei’s absence from the smartphone market. Ever since the US-imposed ban on the Chinese tech giant, its market share has dipped outside China. Samsung might be trying to capitalize on the opportunity.
Another reason behind the gap in releases could be the sheer number of phones from Samsung, especially its mid-range segment, which can be really confusing. A break could prove beneficial for users since they will have fewer choices and subsequent confusion to deal with, at least for the time being.
Speaking of the phone itself, the Samsung Galaxy S21 was recently spotted on the Chinese C3 certification site. The site listing revealed phone sporting support for 25-watt fast charging. According to leakster Ice Universe, the phone will pack an under-display front camera.
While other specs of the device are not yet known, we’re likely to see a flagship Exynos/Snapdragon processor, 5G capabilities, and better AR implementations on the phone.
