1. How many Galaxy S21 models are coming?
Samsung has developed three Galaxy S21 models as direct successors to the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra. These are the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra. The S21 has the smallest screen and the lowest price tag, while the S21 Plus is a larger model with a higher price. Those who want the largest and best Samsung device at the moment will end up with the S21 Ultra.
The three smartphones therefore differ in a number of areas, but also share similarities. They look mostly the same, support 5G, run on the same processor, and come with Android 11.
2. When will the Samsung Galaxy S21 be announced?
The presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series will most likely take place on January 14th. The manufacturer then holds a digital event about Galaxy products. The event can be followed live on YouTube via the link below.
Samsung will probably also unveil other Galaxy equipment at this event, including wireless earbuds with the name Galaxy Buds Pro. A smart Bluetooth tracker would also be on the way to quickly find your stuff.
3. When will the Samsung Galaxy S21 be released?
That is not entirely clear yet. As mentioned, the announcement of the smartphones is likely on January 14, and it is obvious that Samsung is aiming for a quick release. Rumors claim the Samsung Galaxy S21 release date is January 29. Among others, the well-known smartphone watch Roland Quandt mentions this date.
You can probably reserve the Galaxy S21 before then, or place a pre-order. In recent years, Samsung has consistently rewarded quick decision-makers with a gift, such as a set of earplugs or a wireless charger. It is not yet clear whether you will also get an extra with a Galaxy S21 pre-order.
4. What are the expected prices of the Samsung S21 devices?
