Apparently Samsung is rushing the launch of its next top of the line, the Galaxy S21, and recent news suggest that the notebook may even gain a launch in 2020.
The news comes from the homeland of Samsung, and comes from people linked to the component supply chain. According to rumors, mass manufacturing of the main components of the Galaxy S21 will start as early as November, about six weeks before when it usually happens.
All of this points to an early launch, which may indicate that Samsung’s upcoming top-of-the-line (which can keep the 120 Hz screen) should debut sooner than expected.
The drop in smartphone sales this year may have been one of the reasons behind this supposed acceleration of launch, and lower than expected commercial results with the Galaxy S20 and Note 20 line would also be another aggravating factor – apparently, neither the newly launched Galaxy S20 FE managed to return the momentum enough to the South Korean.
So a surprise launch at the end of the year would be Samsung’s strategy to win the spotlight, especially after Sammy’s main rival Apple has already put all its cards on the table with the recently announced iPhone series. 12.
The problem is related to the Snapdragon 875, which has not yet been made official and possibly will not be released until next year – but that doesn’t stop the South Korean from launching versions with its own chipset first, is it?
One thing is certain: if the successor of the Galaxy S20 really arrives in the coming weeks, the number of leaks involving the upcoming top of the line will be even greater. So let’s keep our eyes open for what’s new.
