Galaxy S21 expectations on India pricing and specifications
The Galaxy S21 series is coming up with brand new designs and some cutting-edge technologies, all of which have leaked. Given that these will be the new Samsung flagships, the prices are going to be quite high – almost comparable to that of the iPhone 12 series from Apple. Some previous reports suggested that the base Galaxy S21 could start at Euro 849 (approx. Rs 76,000) while the slightly bigger Galaxy S21 Plus could start at Euro 1,049 (approx. Rs 93,000). There’s also supposed to be a Galaxy S21 Ultra that could cost an eye-watering Euro 1,399 (approx. Rs 1,24,600). Also Read - S Pen support coming to more Samsung devices
However, don’t believe these prices blindly as Samsung India could come up with slightly lower prices when compared to global prices. Moreover, for those unwilling to spend that much, last year’s Galaxy S20 series is now available at lower prices.
Along with the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung is also expected to announce its next-gen Galaxy Buds Pro truly wireless earbuds. Samsung could launch its Galaxy SmartTag alongside these phones. The SmartTag could be the Samsung equivalent of Tile trackers.
As for the features and specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S21 series in India is expected to use the new Exynos 2100 chipset that offers comparable performance to the Snapdragon 888 chip, at least on paper. Leaks suggest that the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus will feature a Dynamic AMOLED display with a maximum resolution of 1080p and a refresh rate of 120Hz. The vanilla S21, however, is said to get a plastic rear panel instead of glass on the other models.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra is said to retain a 108-megapixel main camera sensor for its quad rear camera setup. Apart from a slightly different design, the S21 Ultra is also said to get support for the S Pen stylus from the Galaxy Note series.
