After a spate of leaks and speculation, Samsung has finally made an announcement that will calm everything down. The company has confirmed that its The next Galaxy Unpacked event will take place on January 14th, just as leakages had indicated. The online event will be streamed live on the above date at 10 a.m. EST (7:00 a.m. PT / 8:30 p.m. IST) in the Samsung Newsroom and on Samsung.com. The company’s official teaser video for its next no-pace event also gives us a glimpse into the design of the camera module that will rock its next flagship trio – the Galaxy S21.
What can you expect from Galaxy Unpacked 2021?
The star of the next Galaxy Unpacked event will of course be the Galaxy S21 series. If the leaks (of which there are many), Samsung’s upcoming portfolio of camera-centric flagships will include three smartphones – the Galaxy S21, the Galaxy S21 + and the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Leaked renders suggest a redesign is upon us. The camera island is now fused with the surrounding metal frame for a smooth transition. It looks stunning, especially the two-tone finish of the purple Galaxy S21 fairing.

Inside you will find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 (an Exynos chip in some regions) paired with a healthy 8 GB (or higher) of RAM and up to 256 GB of non-expandable storage. The vanilla Galaxy S21 and its Plus variant have three rear cameras, while the Galaxy S21 Ultra has four. As for pricing, that’s the The Galaxy S21 should start at 849 euros (~ $ 1,032) and could cost up to 1,529 euros (~ 1,858 US dollars) for the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
In addition to the Galaxy S21 Trio Samsung is also expected to launch new true wireless earbuds called the Galaxy Buds Pro. Leaked renders have already given us a glimpse of their design from all angles, along with some of their key specs and even the alleged price of $ 200. The IPX7-rated Galaxy Buds are said to offer Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), an improved ambient mode and a spatial audio function.
I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years, having worked with names like NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from the latest news, I’ve checked out my fair share of devices that range from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I’ve also interviewed tech managers and appeared as a moderator on YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets.
