Samsung Galaxy S21 series may launch in mid-January, sales from early February
The Samsung Galaxy S21 series may launch in mid-January with sales starting in early February, the latest reports suggest. There have been various rumors and speculation about Samsung’s desire to launch its next flagship smartphones before their usual cycle. The latest reports claim that the Galaxy S21 series could go on sale from the end of January to the beginning of February and that the production of the Galaxy S21 has already started, although there is no official confirmation so far.
A publication from South Korea has shared that Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S21 series in mid-January to compete with From Apple latest flagship series, iPhone 12. It is said that the new series could go on sale in late January or early February. Other report by WinFuture adds more fuel to these rumors and claims that Samsung has recently started mass production of components for the new Samsung Galaxy S21 series.
Citing Samsung vendors, WinFuture’s report mentions that certain components that are required for various Galaxy S21 series smartphone models are being produced in large numbers at the company’s partner factories. These are the smallest components that are manufactured by third parties and then shipped to Vietnam and South Korea for final production.
Typically, Samsung holds its Unpacked event in February or March and then opens sales for the flagship phones next month. However, this time, it seems that the company has decided to speed up the process and present its new phones a month earlier. The reason for this could be to reduce Apple’s advertising period with iPhone 12 models. The South Korean publication report also notes that this early launch could be to attack the market that Huawei has lost in China in the last quarter.
Last week was reported that production for the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has also started. All of these signs point to an earlier launch than usual for the Galaxy S21 series smartphones. However, as of now, Samsung has not shared any information on the same and this information should be taken with a pinch of salt.
