Reports revealed that the new Galaxy S21 smartphones would come with improved performance, upgraded cameras, and better designs.
Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (KRX: 005930) has officially announced that its new Samsung Galaxy S21 series will launch on the 14th of January. Along with the three new S21 phones, reports revealed that Samsung is also launching Galaxy Buds Pro and SmartTag Bluetooth tracker.
Before Samsung’s official announcement on Galaxy 21 launch, Reuters had revealed that the electronics company was planning to release the new phones earlier than scheduled. Citing three reliable sources, Reuters said that Samsung is reviewing the launch date in order to take market share from Huawei.

However, Huawei has been struggling with restrictions by the US government. The imposed restrictions have been affecting the distribution of its chips which are used in smartphones and telecom products.
