Analyst hints Samsung has a big Galaxy S21 surprise up its sleeves
Samsung also unveiled its first clamshell foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip, at the Unpacked event where it unveiled the Galaxy S20. The company launched a 5G-variant of the bendable phone in July.
Galaxy Z Flip 2 will reportedly not share the stage with the Galaxy S21
Per Ross, the Galaxy Z Flip 2 will not be launched alongside the Galaxy S21. It will instead be announced in spring. Previously, Ross had said the phone would be announced in Q3 2021.
The Z Flip 2 will not be launched with the S21, but it will be launched in the spring. I am impressed with the upgrades it will get.— Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) October 28, 2020
He also says that the phone will get impressive upgrades, without going into details. If earlier leaks are to go by, the Galaxy Z Flip 2 will sport a larger cover screen and a triple camera system.
Ross has refuted a recent rumor which says the Galaxy S21 Ultra will feature a 144Hz screen. He thinks the phone will stick with a 120Hz LTPO panel.
The Galaxy S21 will either be powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC or the Exynos 2100, depending on where you live. It looks like only the specced-out model will have a curved display, and the other two variants will have a flat screen.
The phone may swap out its predecessor's 108MP sensor for a 180MP camera. It is also expected to replace the time-of-flight sensor with two optical zoom lenses.
