In fact, it nonetheless feels unsure if the Word 21 will occur in any respect, given the Samsung Galaxy S21 Extremely launched with S Pen help – although as not too long ago as December, a Samsung worker reportedly stated the corporate is “making ready to launch the Galaxy Word sequence subsequent 12 months.” Whereas the corporate did not trace at whether or not a Word 21 could be coming throughout its January Unpacked event, it is arduous to think about a full 12 months with out one other Samsung flagship telephone.
The Samsung Galaxy Word 21 is ready to be an improve to the Galaxy Note 20, and the newest of the Word sequence – although some folks assume Samsung is planning to kill off this stylus-toting vary of telephones, so it might find yourself being the final of its variety.

Samsung Galaxy Word 21 launch date and worth
The principle leaks surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 are merely whether or not or not it would even launch. It’s been rumored that Samsung is looking to ditch the range and simply give attention to the Galaxy S vary and the brand new Galaxy Z Fold vary on the excessive finish.
With the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra launching with stylus supper and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 rumored to be doing the identical, there’s definitely proof for that, as now that the majority of Samsung’s premium telephones have large screens it’s principally simply the stylus that helps the Word stand out, so including it to the S vary leaves much less purpose for the Word vary to exist.
Nevertheless, if Samsung actually is phasing out the vary it appears to be like as if there’s an opportunity we would at the least get a Samsung Galaxy Word 21 earlier than that occurs. Each @UniverseIce (a leaker with an inexpensive observe file) and Herald Corp (a South Korean information web site) have recommended as a lot.
‘Business sources’ have apparently said the same, including that there is supposedly solely going to be one Galaxy Word 21 mannequin although – so we would not see a Samsung Galaxy Word 21 Extremely.
Then again, @UniverseIce has since said that there’s no evidence the Galaxy Note 21 is in development.
And a web site even claims to have heard from a Samsung official that the S Pen will probably be added to the Z Fold 3 and Galaxy S21 Extremely (which has since launched with stated help), with the Word vary then set to be discontinued. Three sources speaking to Reuters additionally declare that there will not be a brand new Galaxy Word in 2021.
Most not too long ago of all although Samsung has suggested in a statement that it is nonetheless dedicated to the Samsung Galaxy Word vary – although it is potential that simply means there’s a Galaxy Note 20 FE on the way.
An anonymous Samsung official has additionally claimed that there will probably be a brand new Galaxy Word in 2021, which suggests the vary is not lifeless but.
So proper now we’re actually not sure, however we might assume there is a good likelihood there will probably be at the least yet another Word, and assuming the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 is within the works, we are able to take a superb guess at when it would launch, with August 2021 being very doubtless.
Lately Samsung has all the time introduced new Word fashions in early August and shipped them roughly two weeks later, so the identical once more is probably going for the Word 21.
The value is barely more durable to guess as that does change 12 months to 12 months, however the Samsung Galaxy Word 20 began at $999 / £849 / AU$1,199, so we’d count on the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 will price at the least that a lot.
Leaks and rumors
There isn’t a lot in the way in which of Samsung Galaxy Word 21 leaks but, however we may be assured of some issues. For instance, the telephone is bound to help – and include – an S Pen stylus, since that’s the principle promoting level of the vary.
There may also most likely be a number of fashions, with a Samsung Galaxy Word 21 Extremely or Plus doubtless becoming a member of the usual mannequin.
The vary can be prone to have top-end energy, with US customers most likely getting the highest Qualcomm chipset of the time (doubtless the Snapdragon 888 or 888 Plus), and most different areas most likely getting the highest Samsung Exynos 2100 chipset.
We have been listening to Samsung is readying an under-display digital camera for its smartphones, and it might come within the Galaxy Word 21. In Korea the company trademarked the marketing name ‘Below-Panel Digicam’ or UPC making it appear imminent.
What we need to see
Whereas we anticipate extra Samsung Galaxy Word 21 rumors to roll in, we’ve give you an inventory of what we need to see.
1. Snapdragon for all fashions
Samsung sometimes packs completely different chipsets into its Word telephones for various areas, with the US getting a Snapdragon one, whereas the UK and far of the remainder of the world will get an Exynos one. The issue with that is that the 2 chipsets are by no means equal, so one model of the telephone is normally higher than the opposite.
Lately it’s tended to be the Snapdragon one, so we’d like all fashions of the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 to make use of no matter one of the best Snapdragon chipset is on the time. However we’d even take all of them utilizing Exynos – principally we simply need them to be equal.
2. A glass again
Whereas the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has a glass again, the usual Samsung Galaxy Word 20 is caught with a plastic one, which is kind of shocking given how a lot the telephone prices.
So for the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 we wish all fashions to have a glass again, or use another premium materials resembling steel. Simply no plastic please.
3. 120Hz on all fashions in any respect resolutions
The Samsung Galaxy Word 20 solely has a 60Hz refresh charge, which is low for a premium telephone, and whereas the Word 20 Extremely ups it to 120Hz, it drops the display screen decision within the course of, so it’s a must to select between a excessive refresh charge and a excessive decision.
So for the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 vary we wish all fashions to characteristic a 120Hz refresh charge, and for all of them to do it no matter different display screen settings you’ve.
4. Digicam enhancements
Nice because the Samsung Galaxy Word 20 Extremely is, its digital camera isn’t fairly up there with one of the best in low-light conditions, with the telephone resorting to texture smoothing to compensate for noise. This leads to much less detailed photos than latest telephones from Apple and Google handle, so we need to see this improved for the Galaxy Word 21.
We additionally wouldn’t say no to extra lenses – each Galaxy Word 20 fashions have a triple-lens rear digital camera, whereas the top-end commonplace is more and more quad-lens.
5. Sooner charging
Each the Galaxy Word 20 and the Word 20 Extremely have 25W quick charging, which isn’t unhealthy but it surely pales compared to the 65W charging on the OnePlus 8T.
It’s additionally oddly lots slower than the 45W charging supplied by the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus, so we wish at the least a return to 45W with the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 vary, and ideally extra.
