Samsung confirms the release date of the new series of Galaxy S21: here's when the top of the range arrives.
Samsung's new top of the range smartphones are coming and the South Korean company has confirmed the official launch date. Next January 14 at 4 p.m. Italian time, the new Galaxy S21 will be presented in streaming on the official website of the manufacturer.
The confirmation came in the movie posted on the official YouTube account of the company entitled Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021: Welcome to the Everyday Epic. The video lets you glimpse in a cube the design of the new smartphones, which will arrive in three variants: Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra. The first two models are expected to feature a three-sensor camera compartment on the back, while the Ultra model will feature four sensors. Along with the Galaxy S21 series smartphones, Samsung would also be ready to launch its new accessories: the Galaxy Buds Pro earphones and the Galaxy Smart Tag.
Samsung Galaxy S21: the features
The new Galaxy S21 series will be able to count on the 5G connectivity standard, a flat display with notch hole in the center, where the front camera is housed, and very thin bezels. The difference between Galaxy S21 and the Plus model will be in size: the second will have a larger screen and a battery with greater capacity. Both models will feature a three-sensor camera compartment on the back: 12-megapixel main, 12-megapixel wide-angle and 64-megapixel zoom.
Different speech for Galaxy S21 Ultra, which could be the only one of the three equipped with the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, a curved screen and a camera compartment with four sensors: the main one of 108 megapixels, 10x optical periscope zoom, a 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor and a traditional 3x 10-megapixel zoom, in addition to laser autofocus and ToF sensor, already present on the predecessor Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Samsung Galaxy S21: official launch date
Samsung has confirmed the official launch date of the new Galaxy S21 series, scheduled for 4 p.m. in Italy on January 14, 2021. The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021: Welcome to the Everyday Epic event will be streamed on the South Korean company's official website, which will showcase all the features of the top of the line devices and also the new accessories.
After the launch and presentation, the Galaxy S21 could go on sale from January 29 and the prices could be those already suggested by some rumors: 879 euros for Galaxy S21 5G, 1079 euros for Galaxy S21+ 5G and 1399 euros for the Ultra model.
Samsung will imitate Apple?
In the last days before the confirmation of the launch, another rumor rages on the net about a decision of Samsung that would make many fans' mouths water. If it seems now confirmed that with the new Galaxy will be able to use the S-Pen, it seems instead that like Apple in the box of the top of the range smartphones will be missing both headphones and charger.
Just like the iPhone 12, these two important accessories would be sold separately. We will have to wait until January 14 for confirmation or denial of this decision, which could turn out to be a nasty surprise.
