Don't Wait If You Can't Wait Until Early 2021
If you can't wait until early 2021 to buy your next phone, you'll want to move on.
We're starting to hear about an early Galaxy S21 announcement. Korean media believes Samsung could fast-track the Galaxy S21 series with an announcement coming earlier than usual.
Another report, from SamMobile, claims the Galaxy S21 series will launch in early January with a release in late January or February.
These reports have been backed by a different report out of Korea. This one claims that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S21 series in January with a release coming later in the month.
Leaker Jon Prosser, who has leaked accurate information about unreleased products in the past, says the Galaxy S21 is slated to launch on January 14th.
Prosser also says pre-orders will start on January 14th followed by a release a few weeks later on January 29th.
A report from Reuters throws its weight behind the early release. The publication says Samsung "may launch its flagship Galaxy S smartphones more than a month earlier than expected in a bid to grab market share from Huawei and fend off competition from Apple."
Samsung, in a roundabout way, has all but confirmed an early launch in comments made to Korean outlet ZDNet.
An unnamed Samsung official says because "the market environment is changing rapidly, it is true that it is not possible to guarantee whether the usual unpacking schedule will continue as it is."
The Galaxy S21 Ultra has also been granted regulatory approval which is a necessary step ahead of a release.
Everything is pointing to an arrival in January. That said, if you can't wait until next year, start digging into other devices.
