When the cat is gone, the mice will play or at least throw one Galaxy S21 party. Not that we equate the world’s largest phone maker with a mouse, but that title was recently captured by Huawei only to see it slip as US sanctions began to take effect.
Still, Samsung apparently plans to take advantage of Huawei’s problems as much as possible, reports Korean media The Elec today and is preparing for an early Galaxy S21 and Buds 2 release date.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and Buds 2 start
- Galaxy S21 release date: February 5, 2021
How early exactly? Good, “Galaxy S21 smartphones are expected to go on sale a month earlier than their predecessors“claim the sources of the report that would put the Galaxy S21 S21 + and The S21 Ultra release date is early February. The unpacked event is planned for the end of January.
The Galaxy S20 series was announced in February and went on sale in March, but in 2021 the Galaxy S21 will apparently do the skits in January / February. Given that the The S20 line hit shelves on Friday March 6th, the S21 was able to be released on Friday February 5th, 2021.
This prediction is in line with what we heard from another Korean industry source yesterday that the Galaxy S21 parts suppliers will ship components to Samsung earlier than usual. Elec’s report confirms this, stating that suppliers’ production will begin in mid-December and shipping schedules will be en masse, instead of mid-January as was the schedule for the S20 models.
Why is the Galaxy S21 series being released early? Well, there’s a new Samsung Mobile boss who has already shaken the established schedule with an excursion S20 Fan Edition with a special unpacked event not seen before for a $ 700 Samsung phone, and a third one for the Z Fold 2 back in September.
It also apparently speeds up the S21 development, production and launch process. “To take advantage of Huawei’s absence, those familiar with the matter said“Huawei will now have problems getting the latest and greatest processor chips because of US sanctions, also the fruits of his own research, as The sanctions also apply to the foundries, so Samsung could try to get as large a market share as possible from Huawei while the Chinese juggernaut finds out.
in addition, Apple’s iPhone 12 Supercycle is set to move deep into the fourth quarter and maybe even the first quarter this year, as the iPhone 12 Pro Max releases through November 13, as does this year’s other interesting iPhone the 12 mini. If Samsung launches the Galaxy S21 in the early first quarter, Samsung will both benefit from Huawei’s presumed absence from the flagship space in 2021 and counteract the iPhone 12 series sales somewhat.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and Buds 2 colors at startup
- 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 it will be. For comparison: Depending on the model, the S20 series is available in the colors Cosmic Gray, Cosmic Black, Cloud Blue and Cloud Pink (Aura Red or Cloud White are special editions).
Samsung will apparently also be releasing the Galaxy Buds 2 along with the Galaxy S21 phones, and the big upgrade will be a new level of water resistance for these. The Galaxy Buds 2 are reportedly codenamed Attic and will be available in black, silver and purple.
“”Samsung used the name Plus or Live because they couldn’t improve their water resistance, “Tip Insider for this year Galaxy Buds + and Buds Live bean-shaped models with active noise cancellation, but apparently it figured out how to provide both ANC and higher water resistance. Samsung usually gives away the Buds at least in the pre-order phase with a purchase of the S series. We hope this will also be the case when the prices for the Galaxy S21, S21 + and Ultra are released in early February.
