Since the launch of the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Z Fold 2, we have come across numerous Galaxy S21 leaks and reports. We had exclusively reported a couple of weeks ago that the Galaxy S21 series will be launched as soon as January 2021. Now, another report seems to confirm the earlier-than-usual launch time frame for Samsung’s next-generation flagship smartphone.
Roland Quandt, who has published some accurate leaks related to Galaxy devices in the past, has recently mentioned on Twitter that the part production of the Galaxy S21 Ultra is starting right now. However, he says that it could either be mass production of the smartphone or just sampling production for testing units. Some previous rumors had claimed a similar time frame for the production of the Galaxy S21.
The first renders of the Galaxy S21 Ultra emerged last month, showcasing a gigantic camera bump. It appears that Samsung will mostly ditch curved screens for the entire Galaxy S21 series. The color variants for the upcoming flagship series was leaked as well. The Galaxy S21 Ultra seems to have a penta-camera setup on the rear, a punch-hole selfie camera, and a 5,000mAh battery.
The Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra will mostly launch with Android 11-based One UI 3.0 onboard. They could come equipped with the Snapdragon 875 processor in China and the US, and the rumored 5nm Exynos 2100 SoC in other markets. We can also expect features such as 5G, Wi-Fi 6, in-display fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, IP68 certification, Samsung Pay, 65W fast charging, and wireless charging.
