Samsung Galaxy Word 21 launch date and worth
The primary leaks surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 are merely whether or not or not it should even launch. It’s been rumored that Samsung is looking to ditch the range and simply concentrate on the Galaxy S vary and the brand new Galaxy Z Fold vary on the excessive finish.
With each the Samsung Galaxy S21 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 rumored to support a stylus, there’s actually proof for that, as now that the majority of Samsung’s premium telephones have massive screens it’s largely simply the stylus that helps the Word stand out, so including it to the S vary would depart much less cause for the Word vary to exist.
Nonetheless, if Samsung actually is phasing out the vary it seems probably that we’ll no less than get a Samsung Galaxy Word 21 earlier than that occurs. Each @UniverseIce (a leaker with an affordable monitor file) and Herald Corp (a South Korean information web site) have recommended as a lot.
Assuming that the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 is within the works then, we will take a superb guess at when it should launch, with August 2021 being very probably. In recent times Samsung has at all times 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 worth 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 no less than that a lot.
Leaks and rumors
There isn’t a lot in the best way of Samsung Galaxy Word 21 leaks but, however we may be assured of some issues. For instance, the telephone is certain to assist – and include – an S Pen stylus, since that’s the primary promoting level of the vary.
There may also most likely be a number of fashions, with a Samsung Galaxy Word 21 Extremely or Plus probably becoming a member of the usual mannequin.
The vary can also be more likely to have top-end energy, with US customers most likely getting the highest Qualcomm chipset of the time (probably the Snapdragon 875 or 875 Plus), and most different areas most likely getting the highest Samsung Exynos chipset.
What we need to see
Whereas we await extra Samsung Galaxy Word 21 rumors to roll in, we’ve give you a listing 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.
In recent times 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 the perfect Snapdragon chipset is on the time. However we’d even take all of them utilizing Exynos – largely 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 stunning given how a lot the telephone prices.
So for the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 we would like all fashions to have a glass again, or use another premium materials reminiscent of metallic. 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 decision within the course of, so you must select between a excessive refresh charge and a excessive decision.
So for the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 vary we would like all fashions to characteristic a 120Hz refresh charge, and for all of them to do it no matter different display settings you’ve got.
4. Digicam enhancements
Nice because the Samsung Galaxy Word 20 Extremely is, its digicam isn’t fairly up there with the perfect 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 digicam, whereas the top-end customary 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 quite a bit slower than the 45W charging supplied by the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus, so we would like no less than a return to 45W with the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 vary, and ideally extra.
