Biggest Surprice From Samsung on New Year: The Samsung Galaxy S21 Launch Date is January 14
The Samsung Galaxy S21 launch date is January 14, in keeping with the South Korean firm‘s official Galaxy Unpacked 2021 invite, and we totally count on to see its new 5G smartphones and even some novel equipment present up nearly.
The Thursday, January 14 launch occasion begins at 10am EST / 7am PST / 3pm GMT (and Friday 2am AEST). Particularly, the entire newest Samsung Galaxy S21 leaks level to the three new telephones – the S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra, providing refreshes of the 11-month-old trio: the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra.
If January 14 appears sooner than regular, that’s as a result of it is by a month and a half. Samsung is transferring its ordinary late February announcement window up – maybe as a result of reality that MWC 2020 has shifted to late June, or the Qualcomm 888 and Exynos 2100 chipsets are able to go. It will conflict with the final day of CES 2021, too.
After all, Samsung’s occasion invite does not title any of the telephones we talked about. It payments this invite for its semi-annual Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021 showcase, with the tagline ‘Welcome to On a regular basis Epic’. The invite picture reveals what seems to be the brand new digital camera module in an opaque dice.
Samsung Galaxy S21 specs all but confirmed
Samsung’s shift to an earlier launch date matches the tempo of the Galaxy S21 leaks we have been seeing nearly day by day. There’s nearly nothing left for Samsung to disclose.
We’re anticipating Samsung to deliver phones in three display sizes – 6.2, 6.7 and 6.9 inches – all with 120Hz adaptive shows and a smaller backside bezel (goodbye chin). Inside, rumors level to both the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 (US) or Exynos 2100 chipsets (in all places else) and at the very least 8GB of RAM. We’re nonetheless ready to listen to if it will have expandable storage through a microSD card slot.
The Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus rear cameras appear to be getting particular therapy, in keeping with a number of renders of the refined digital camera modules. All with three lenses – anticipated to be a 12MP major, 12MP ultra-wide and 64MP telephoto – seem flatter with a barely much less pronounced digital camera bump.
Samsung’s Galaxy S12 Ultra is thought to have barely a special rear digital camera, with the 108MP major digital camera making a return together with both a 5x or 10x optical zoom, relying on which rumors you need to consider. The Samsung Galaxy Observe 20 actually impressed us with the 5x optical zoom, so try to be joyful both method.
A twist or two
In a twist, the Galaxy S21 Ultra may embrace an S Pen, the stylus that’s beforehand been unique to Samsung’s Galaxy Observe series. If true, that could be an enormous cause to purchase the costliest version of the telephone. You won’t have to attend till August 2021 to wrap your arms around a brand new S Pen.
This weekend we additionally received perception right into a novel accent that Samsung might launch on January 14: a Tile-like Bluetooth tracker known as Samsung Galaxy SmartTag. It could be useful for locating objects like keys, backpacks and baggage that goes MIA. If the SmartTag tracker does get introduced, Samsung will beat the yet-to-be-revealed Apple AirTag tracker that’s been rumored for greater than a yr.
We’ll have a Samsung Galaxy S21 live blog during the January 14 announcement and level you to the official Samsung Unpacked 2021 live stream. Till then, we’re positive there are a half-dozen extra S21 leaks between now and the launch date.
