Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra may have already entered production
Leaker Roland Quandt's latest tweet hints at the same.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra (part) production seems to be starting rn. Will have to wait a little to confirm if this is mass production or just sampling for PVT/DVT devices.— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) October 30, 2020
Apparently, Galaxy S21 Ultra's part production has started already. It's not clear if this is mass production or sampling for prototype devices.
According to a previous report, mass production of parts will begin in November, a month and a half earlier than usual. Samsung seemingly wants to release the Galaxy S21 earlier to make up for the lower than expected Galaxy S20 sales and fill the gap left by Huawei.
Although the embattled Chinese company recently unveiled the flagship Mate 40 series, availability will likely be limited. The phones may also fail to attract non-Chinese consumers because they lack Google apps and services.
Back to the Galaxy S21, Samsung may launch it in January and some sources even claim that it will be made official in December.
In the US and China, the phone will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875, and the other variants will have the Exynos 2100 under the hood. It will likely run Android 11 with One UI 3.1 on top.
A fresh render indicates that the specced out model will have five cameras in total. Although a report had claimed that the phone would sport a 180MP wide-angle sensor, chances are that it will stick with a 108MP camera. Similarly, it seems like the phone will retain a 120Hz screen instead of going for a 144Hz one.
