Well, according to this information, the company is actually rushing the arrival of the Galaxy S21 series. This information comes from MTN, a Korean publication, and is based on the information provided by insiders.
Galaxy S21 may launch before the end of 2020, key components will enter mass production soon
They claim that many of the key Galaxy S21 components will enter mass production as early as next month. That means this phase of the development is coming considerably earlier than usual.
On its own, this does suggest an earlier arrival of the Galaxy S21 series, but what the source is reporting is kind of extreme. This year has been quite odd due to the global pandemic and everything, and that may be one of the main reasons for this change.
If this does happen, it is yet another indicator that Samsung is not entirely happy with its sales this year. According to the source, the company wants to beat its competitors to the market, and arrive as early as possible.
You may wonder how will Samsung pull this off when the Snapdragon 875 is not even out yet. That chip will get announced later this year, and chances are it won’t become available early.
Even if this happens, the devices won't become available until 2021
Well, Samsung could technically announce the Galaxy S21 in December, and ship it later on, as soon as it’s able to manufacture the required number of units. Chances are that the Snapdragon 875 samples will be available at that time, to OEMs.
There is a lot of speculation here, as this report is quite surprising. It’s still more likely that Samsung will wait with this announcement, but it seems like some industry insiders think the Galaxy S21 series will come early. We’ll just have to wait and see what will happen. One thing is for sure, you can expect many Galaxy S21 rumors and leaks moving forward.
