The Galaxy S21 lineup is rumored to go official on January 14 next year, but as expected there’s no confirmation from Samsung about that just yet. And while we are unlikely to see Samsung reveal the unveiling date of the S21 series this year, the vanilla S21 has been certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in India, which is another indicator that the Korean tech giant will launch its upcoming Galaxy S flagships earlier than previous models.
According to various leaks and rumors, the Galaxy S21 lineup includes three smartphones – Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra. And like previous models, these will also have an Exynos or a Snapdragon chipset at the helm depending on the market.
