Without the cat the rats would play, or at least throw a Galaxy S21 party. Not that we equate the world’s largest phone manufacturer with a mouse, but that title was recently occupied by Huawei, only to see it slip when US sanctions begin to bite.
Samsung, however, seems to be planning to leverage Huawei’s problems as much as possible, reports Korean media The Elec today, and preparing for an advance The release date of Galaxy S21 and Buds 2.
The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and Buds 2
- Galaxy S21 release date: February 5, 2021
How early exactly? Well, “Galaxy S21 smartphones are likely to start official sales a month sooner than their predecessors, “claim report sources, which will put on Galaxy S21, S21 + at The release date of the S21 Ultra was in early February, with an Unpacked event scheduled for late January.
The Galaxy S20 series was announced in February and sold out in March, but in 2021 the Galaxy S21 will do the skits during the January / February period, it seems. The The S20 line hit the shelves on Friday, March 6, the S21 could be released on Friday, February 5, 2021.
This prediction is recognizable from what we heard yesterday from another Korean industry source, namely Galaxy S21 parts suppliers will start shipping parts to Samsung sooner than usual. The Elec report confirms this, and pegs mid-December as the start of supplier production and shipping plans in bulk, rather than mid-January as scheduled for the S20 models.
Why was the Galaxy S21 series released so early? Thus, there is a new leader of Samsung Mobile, which has ruined the established schedule by the release of an The S20 Fan Edition with a dedicated Unpacked event, something unseen for a $ 700 Samsung phone right now, and also has a third for Z Fold 2 back in September.
He seems to be speeding up the development of S21, launch process and launch as well “to take advantage of Huawei’s absence, people familiar with the matter said. “Huawei will have a problem getting the latest and greatest processor chips today because of sanctions in the US, even the consequences of its own research, as the penalties are in the foundry as well, so Samsung may try to carve out market share share from Huawei as much as possible while the Chinese juggernaut finds out.
Besides this, Apple’s iPhone 12 supercycle is expected to go into Q4 this year, and maybe even Q1, given that the iPhone 12 Pro Max will be released until November 13, for another interesting iPhone this year, the 12 mini. So, if it releases the Galaxy S21 in early Q1, Samsung will both use Huawei’s presumed absence in the flagship of 2021, and somewhat counter the sales of the iPhone 12 series.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and Buds 2 colors at launch
- Galaxy S21 colors: White, Gray, Pink, Purple, and Silver
- Galaxy Buds 2 colors: Black, Silver, Purple
Another interesting leak in the early release report of the Galaxy S21 series is the colors that will be. For comparison, the S20 series comes in Cosmic Gray, Cosmic Black, Cloud Blue and Cloud Pink (Aura Red or Cloud White are special editions), depending on the model.
Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy Buds 2 along with the Galaxy S21 phones as well, and the big upgrade will be a new level of water resistance for those. Galaxy Buds 2 is reportedly coded under the name Attic, and comes in Black, Silver, and purple colors.
“Samsung used the name Plus or Live because they could not improve the water resistance on them, “tip insiders for this year The Galaxy Buds + and Buds Live bean-shaped models with active noise cancellation, but, apparently, found out how to provide both ANC and a higher waterproof rating. Typically, Samsung offers Buds on an S-series purchase, at least in the pre-order stage, so we expect it to do the same when the Galaxy S21, S21 + and Ultra are priced for an earlier release of February.
