One day before the New Year, Samsung has released a short video teasing the Samsung Galaxy S21. “A new Galaxy awaits,” the video says, as Samsung takes viewers through a decade of Galaxy S releases.
Unfortunately, no details for the Galaxy S21 are revealed.
Samsung’s new device has leaked multiple times over the past month, to the point where we know pretty much everything, from the design to the specs. So, while Samsung is playing coy, that doesn’t mean we don’t know what to expect ahead of the Galaxy S21’s official unveiling.
According to Ishan Agarwal, we also know that Samsung seems to have started sending out invites for the nest Samsung Galaxy S21 Unpacked event, which is supposed to take place on January 14 at 3 PM EST.
Rumors about new Samsung Galaxy S21
We already know that the device will arrive without a charger and a headset in the box in some markets, but now it seems that the three Galaxy S21 variants will also be ditching microSD cards.
This time, the information comes from Roland Quandt who’s always giving us reliable information. He claims that the new Galaxy S21 does not feature a “memory card reader” in its spec sheet.
This isn’t hard to believe, as we have already seen Samsung removing this feature from the Galaxy Note series since 2019, and it doesn’t seem to have a negative impact on the phone’s sales numbers. However, this is still a rumor, which means that anything can happen between now and next year’s January event.
Whatever we wind up seeing, Samsung would very much like consumers to know that “a new Galaxy awaits.”
From the numerous leaks we’ve seen, Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series looks like its strongest lineup yet. We’re especially excited to see the new design, which now includes a flat display and a re-designed camera module.
