Samsung Galaxy S21 Series India Launch Will Happen Alongside Global Launch Event For the First Time

For the first time in recent years, Samsung Unpacked Global and India announcements will happen on the same day.


Samsung is all set to unveil the Galaxy S21 series at Unpacked 2021 later this week on 14th January. The company is expected to introduce 3 smartphones under the S21 series –  Galaxy S21Galaxy S21 Plus, and Galaxy S21 Ultra. The pre-orders for the Galaxy S21 series devices are already live in several countries including India. There is usually a few weeks difference between India and global launch, but this time around Samsung has different plans. MySmartPrice has verified and can confirm that for the first time in years, the Indian launch event will happen on the very same day as the global launch.

Leaks surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S21 series devices have been doing rounds on the web for few weeks now. Due to these leaks pretty much everything has already been revealed about all three devices. Interestingly, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will be the first-ever S-series device to support S-Pen which, so far has been exclusive to the Note, and Tab series of devices. However, Samsung will not bundle the S-Pen with the device, and users need to buy it separately.

The Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus might feature a 6.2-inch and a 6.7-inch Infinity-O FHD+ AMOLED displays with 2,400 x 1080 pixels resolutions respectively. These displays will come with a 120Hz variable refresh rate, and 1300nits of brightness. Both the phones are likely to come with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection.

All three devices will be powered by Exynos 2100, which will be unveiled later today. The Exynos 2100 might carry major improvement over the predecessor. In fact, there are reports suggesting that Samsung might have finally caught up with Qualcomm, or even surpassed it in terms of performance.

Galaxy Unpacked event for India will start at 20:00 on 14th January. All India specific announcements will take place in the same event. Ahead of Unpacked 2021, Samsung has already slashed prices of Samsung Galaxy S20 series devices. What is your guess on the pricing of the upcoming S21 series devices?
