If you own an older Galaxy S10 or have just splashed out on a shiny new Galaxy S20 then you might want to avoid the news this week. Unlike previous years when Samsung has left it until February or March to reveal its next flagship device, it seems thing will be very different in 2021. Last week the Korean firm announced it will be holding one of its famous Unpacked events on January 14 and that means there are just days to go until we see what Samsung has in store for its smartphone range.
“Learn more about the new experiences that are built to make your everyday life epic at Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021, which will be broadcast on Samsung.com on January 14, 2021,” the firm said in a blog post.
Although there’s no official confirmation that the event will showcase the new Galaxy S21, Samsung has also teased an image of the triple rear camera system in its invite to the event on Thursday.
This matches many of the rumours about this new device which will feature a camera bump which is thought to sit in a panel which then curves around the sides of the phone – making it look more appealing than last year’s bulbous S20.
Full details will clearly be revealed in just a few days time but there’s already been plenty of speculation about what will feature on the S21 and it certainly seems likely outshine the ageing S10 and current S20.
Firstly we can expect all of the usual upgrades such as a faster processor, longer battery life and improved camera specs.
Rumours are also rife that the most premium S21 Ultra will get support for the S Pen stylus and will also feature a more impressive 120Hz display.
A tweaked design with more colour options could also be unveiled and expect more updates on the latest 5G technology for speedy downloads.
Although there’s clearly plenty of things to look forward to, this could also be the first-ever Galaxy device to ditch the plug and headphones from the box. Rumours suggest that Samsung is following Apple by removing these accessories in a bid to cut down on electronic waste and make the packaging more compact.
We’re also expecting the S21 to have no expandable storage meaning fans won’t be able to boost the memory once they’ve bought the device. As pointed out by 9to5Google, the latest Galaxy S21 leaks make no mention of the S21 range coming fitted with a microSD slot.
With under a week to go until the grand unveiling, there’s not long until we find out exactly what Samsung has in store.
Express.co.uk will have all of the latest rumours ahead of the launch. So, stay tuned for the latest on the Samsung Galaxy S20 range ahead of its official release.
