Samsung Galaxy S21 (S30)
With the Galaxy S20 and Note 20, Samsung will shine on top smartphones in 2020. This is why fans are already looking forward to next year. Then, Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S21, which is sometimes called the Galaxy S30 on the Internet. Because the name of the next-generation Galaxy S model is unclear.
Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S30
So far, Samsung has been chronologically naming its Galaxy S models. Galaxy S9 is followed by Galaxy S10. But this year it went bankrupt. Samsung introduced the Galaxy S20 instead of the Galaxy S11. Now, some fans believe that Samsung will also jump 10 names in the next few years to “catch up” with rival Huawei (Huawei P40).
We are more likely to assume that Samsung will now renumber the series in chronological order based on the year. Corresponding to the A and M series of low-cost models (such as Galaxy A21s) already have corresponding models.
When will the Samsung Galaxy S21 be released?
The Galaxy S21 will be launched in February 2021 and will be on sale in the spring. However, due to the global pandemic, the time to market may be delayed. This remains to be seen.
How much is the Galaxy S21?
Samsung Galaxy S21 does not yet have an official price. We assume that this will be the level of the predecessor (about $900).
Galaxy S21, S21e, S21+ and S21 Ultra
According to media reports, Samsung will once again bring three Galaxy S21s to the market. However, it is not clear whether Samsung will launch the S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra again, or whether the Korean manufacturer will decide this year to make the compact Galaxy S10e its successor. But we would rather assume that there is no S21e.
These innovations are waiting for you in the Galaxy S21
The Galaxy S21 is still not well understood, but industry insiders believe that Samsung will innovate in two aspects:
Samsung introduced the first mobile phone equipped with a 108 megapixel camera through the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Unfortunately, they ran into problems with autofocus. The overall quality of the space zoom is also disappointing. Needless to say, Samsung must improve this. The Korean manufacturer has set a course for this: even higher pixels! Rumors have circulated about 2.5 megapixel cameras in the next Samsung phone on the Internet.
Whether such a high-resolution camera will be used in the Galaxy S21 remains to be seen. Insiders currently believe that Samsung will continue to use a 108-megapixel sensor for the S21. Obviously, manufacturers will no longer use ToF sensors in the future. This should be related to iPhone 12.
For the Exynos 990 processor installed in this country, Samsung also had to be criticized by European users. Compared with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 of the US model, the performance of Samsung’s chip is significantly behind. Thanks to the production of 5nm process and the graphics unit developed in cooperation with AMD, the speed of Exynos 1000 will be greatly improved.
Samsung performs a major redesign of the Galaxy S series every two years. Therefore, a new product needs to be designed for the Galaxy S21-we can already imagine which direction this will take. The S30’s display screen may become more borderless, and there will be no annoying notches or holes.
Samsung has been studying front cameras that are not visible under the display for a long time. How should we explain to you how this works in the linked article. However, current rumors indicate that this hidden front camera will not be put on the market in 2021, so Samsung may use a pop-up camera.
It remains to be seen whether Samsung will also install a second display in the camera module on the back, as suggested by the YouTube channel “Technizo Concept” in the video below. But we think this idea is great!
To be sure, Samsung will release the Galaxy S21 on Android 11. Google is expected to release a new version of the mobile operating system in September 2020. It brings many improvements. Among other things, there will be a separate area in the notification bar where only messages from Messenger will be displayed. You can also pin a separate chat as a bubble on one side of the page and react quickly to the messages you receive. In the video below, we will show you the further innovations of Android 11.
But please note that some of the innovations in Android 11 are optional. Therefore, Samsung does not have to bring them to the phone. Samsung Android 11 will still have its own user interface on S21: a UI 3.0. Detailed information about this version is still rare online.
You may need to prepare for the fact that Samsung will reduce its services in the future and rely more on Google services. According to media reports, the two companies are currently negotiating a corresponding deal.
It is already clear that as a Galaxy S21 buyer, you will now get three larger Android updates instead of two. Samsung recently announced this.
According to the latest rumors, Samsung will once again increase the battery of the Galaxy S21. For the Galaxy S21+, the first details about battery capacity have attracted attention online.
You can also change the accessories that come with your phone. Like Apple, Samsung should avoid adding power adapters to its phones starting in 2021. Whether the Korean manufacturer dares to take this step with its top models remains to be seen.
