If you’ve been thinking bout getting yourself Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphone, now might be the worst time to make that purchase considering the fact that the Korean tech giant is apparently on the verge of releasing the follow-up model to the previous year’s model which is the Galaxy S21 and the good news is that there have been numerous reports stating that the pricing of the new device could be US$100 cheaper than the older model.
According to a South Korean leaker Landsk there is high tendency that the Galaxy S21 base model will come with a price tag of about US$850 while the mid-range, the Galaxy S21 Plus will be about US$1,050 while the high-end S21 Ultra will have a price tag of about US$1,250 which is ultimately a US$100 price drop from the current model released back in March 2020.
One prominent speculation for why this is so is due to the company touting out its foldable smartphones to being more accessible than ever which is definitely going to be a price drop for the devices as well.
Another speculation is due to the big 20% drop it experience during the second quarter of the year 2020 according to analysts which has it a one of the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the tech industry and especially the smartphone market.
Samsung did not respond to a request for comment.
However, the release of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series is scheduled to January 14th which is during the Samsung Unpacked event – the last day at the CES which will livestream at 7 AM PT (10 AM ET). The event is dubbed “Welcome to Everyday Epic”.
Reports about the earlier release of the Galaxy S21 series has been circulating over the internet way back since last November as report has it that Samsung has been mass producing the S21 series while also making them affordable across to its customer base.
