Samsung usually holds the Unpacked event in February every year. The news of a January event is in the line with a previous report which claimed that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphones in mid-January in order to take on the recently-launched Apple iPhone 12.
Further, the tipster goes on to claim that the pre-orders of the alleged Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphones will begin the same day of the launch and they will go on sale on January 29. Apart from this, the phones are said to be available in Black, White, Grey, Silver, Violet and Pink colours. Earlier, display industry analyst Ross Young said that the Samsung Galaxy S21 will be offered in Grey, Pink, Violet, and White colour options.
Various reports about the Samsung Galaxy S21 series have been pouring in from all quarters. Recently, it was claimed that Samsung has already started mass production of components needed for the Galaxy S21 series.
Another report said that the South Korean company may follow in the footsteps of Apple iPhone 12 series and come without an in-box charger and headphones.
The design of the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphones have already surfaced on the Internet. An alleged 3C listing suggests that the Galaxy S21 is rated to come with a 3,880mAh battery, the Galaxy S21+ is tipped to pack a 4,660mAh battery and the most premium of the lot, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is listed to pack a 4,800mAh battery.
