Samsung is all set to unveil its next-generation flagship, the Galaxy S21 next month and we have seen plenty of it revealing its all-new design as well as most of the specifications of the Galaxy S21 trio. Now, we have information about the expected international as well as Indian launch of the Galaxy S21 series.
According to our source who wished to remain anonymous, the Galaxy S21 will be announced internationally on January 14 while the Indian launch is expected to follow in the later weeks. This means it could happen as soon as the last week of January 2021, and according to our source it is scheduled for January 29.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 is already up for Pre-Orders (but it’s a blind one)
Samsung’s largest store in the world, the Opera House store has already started taking exclusive blind pre-orders for the Galaxy S21 series in the country. You can prebook one just by paying ₹2,000 in advance, and select customers will be handed the devices on the day of Indian launch itself. Our source has also suggested that there could be some pre-launch offers for the customers who will be booking a Galaxy S21 smartphone in advance
We are informed that Samsung India is planning to host an exclusive live stream of the India launch event at Bangalore’s Opera House store for the few select customers who have pre-booked a Galaxy S21 smartphone.
Our source has also confirmed that the Indian units of Galaxy S21’s will be powered by Samsung’s upcoming Exynos 2100 SoC, which means the Snapdragon 888 model which showed up on Geekbench earlier this month might be limited to the United States only, just like previous generations.
We were further tipped that there might not be a price increase for the Galaxy S21 series compared to Samsung’s current Galaxy S20 lineup and that we can expect the vanilla Galaxy S21 to be priced in the range of Rs.60,000-Rs.70,000 while the Galaxy S21 Ultra could fall in the range of INR 90,000-1,00,000. We’ve already seen the leaked render designs of the new flagship, but now we’ve got more information regarding the finality of those early renders.
