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’s going to 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 definitely 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 motive for the Word vary to exist.
Nevertheless, 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 inexpensive observe report) and Herald Corp (a South Korean information website) have instructed as a lot.
Assuming that the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 is within the works then, we will take a superb guess at when it’s going to launch, with August 2021 being very probably. 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 yr to yr, however the Samsung Galaxy Word 20 began at $999 / £849 / AU$1,199, so we’d anticipate the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 will value 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 cellphone is bound to assist – and include – an S Pen stylus, since that’s the primary promoting level of the vary.
There can even in all probability 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 be more likely to have top-end energy, with US customers in all probability getting the highest Qualcomm chipset of the time (probably the Snapdragon 875 or 875 Plus), and most different areas in all probability 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 cellphone 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 the very best 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 shocking given how a lot the cellphone prices.
So for the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 we would like all fashions to have a glass again, or use another premium materials similar to steel. Simply no plastic please.
3. 120Hz on all fashions in any respect resolutions
The Samsung Galaxy Word 20 solely has a 60Hz refresh price, which is low for a premium cellphone, 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 price and a excessive decision.
So for the Samsung Galaxy Word 21 vary we would like all fashions to characteristic a 120Hz refresh price, and for all of them to do it no matter different display settings you might have.
4. Digicam enhancements
Nice because the Samsung Galaxy Word 20 Extremely is, its digital camera isn’t fairly up there with the very best in low-light conditions, with the cellphone resorting to texture smoothing to compensate for noise. This leads to much less detailed photos than current 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 customary is more and more quad-lens.
5. Quicker 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 so much 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.
