No sooner one Galaxy arrives  that we hear about another :smiling-face: Stress speculation at this point but word is that the S21 or S30   (depending on which way thinking goes for marketing of successor) will be a major upgrade  and the camera could be  an advance worth talking about.   https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/samsung-galaxy-s30-could-be-a-massive-upgrade-on-the-galaxy-s20

Word that the base models may well use  cheaper chinese displays and these OLED  panels will be unable to support the 120 Hz  refresh rate , however this would not affect the Ultra.

Obviously need to see on the one but some expect  that the next Samsung flagship will have an earlier release date.  According to Android Central the  S21/S30 could arrive January 2021.  There is also speculation that the standard model will  will have a 6.2-inch flat screen with a hole-punch front-facing camera, whilst the Ultra  will feature larger, curved screen measuring between 6.7 and 6.9 inches.   However likely be some time before we see anything official and cannot be sure this is completely reliable.

The release date of the S21 virtually confirmed,  store executives” at the Samsung Opera House store in Bengaluru, India  let slip that the New Devices will be unveiled  on January 14 and on sale shortly afterwards.  (talking about India specifically  but other markets should have similar dates)

I personally have recieved an invitation for the live event from Samsung. Kinda hyped!  ^-^ 

 

For those that are not induced, Samsung has for every unpacked a "Samsung Members" event where some members get invited and/or can win a price using a contest. Those people will effectively get a sneak preview/vip experience to really get to know the new lineup from close. I was there in San Francisco just before Corona really was an issue and it was epic :smiling-face: 

 

Even though I'm super exited, I try not to look "Too much" into it to have my expectations as fair as possible and to allow myself to get surprised by the new release :smiling-face:

 

Needless to say, I'm #HYPED

Will be of  some interest but hidden for those who do not wish to see latest speculation  at the moment (about S21 Ultra)

Spoiler
If this leak is credible the S21 Ultra will support 120 Hz at QHD  Resolution  @Anonymous User  Universe   though has often been right in the past.  https://www.xda-developers.com/samsung-galaxy-s21-ultra-120hz-qhd-resolution/

In regard to speculation (and to fuel it). I'm getting a surprise package. 🙂 

 

What's in it. I don't know but I have the feeling that it's a bit special. 😉
