The time is just right to talk about the upcoming Note 21 models.
Samsung announced the Note 20 series in the annual Unpacked event this month. The Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra features top of the line specs paired with a set of high-end cameras you can find in a smartphone. Now that the initial joy is settling down let’s talk Galaxy Note 21—Samsung could also skip a few numbers and go straight to Note 30.
Galaxy Note 21 will be 2021’s new flagship from Samsung and just like the Note 20 which brought a different style from what the company’s been doing all these years offering the Note series with different SoC, the Note 21 will follow suit. The new Note series will most likely feature the base model Note and an Ultra version.
Galaxy Note 21 Specifications
As mentioned earlier, there will be two models of the Note 21 model, base Note 21 and the Ultra version. If Samsung doesn’t change strategies next year, both models will feature similar internals. The Note 21 is likely to feature a 6.7-inch display with 90Hz refresh rate. As this is the base model Note smartphone, 120Hz refresh might be ditched. Also, the display will most likely keep the FHD+ resolution for another year.
The Note 21 Ultra on the other hand will be a bigger device featuring a 7.1-inch display with 120Hz refresh rate. This will be the Dynamic AMOLED panel found in the Note 20 Ultra but with few upgrades like the UHD resolution.
Both Note 21 models will run on the latest Snapdragon/Exynos chip. Although rumours of Samsung ditching the Snapdragon chip is also making the rounds which might happen in 2021. Considering the latest Note 20 models running on the Exynos 990 runs hot when pushed, it’s still a question as to how Samsung is going to manage the thermals on the next flagship chip.
For the camera, the Note 21 Ultra will feature a quad-camera setup with a similar 108 Megapixel primary camera, a 48 Megapixel secondary camera, a 12 Megapixel tertiary camera and TOF sensor. the Note 21 on the other hand will feature a 64 Megapixel primary camera paired with 48 Megapixel secondary camera, a 12 Megapixel tertiary camera and TOF sensor.
Galaxy Note 21 Price
Just like the Note 20 which arrived with a premium price tag, the Note 21 models will be pricier as well. The base model Note 21 will be priced starting at $1199 and the Note 21 Ultra will see a jump to $1399. If you are looking for more affordable options, the Note 20 models might just be the pick—even though it’s an year old, it will still have power under the hood and not to mention the camera setup.
Galaxy Note 21 Release Date
We are hoping the pandemic situation recedes by 2021 and phone manufacturing is back on track. In that case we should see a glimpse of the Note 21 in early August 2021 and official rollout to retailers happening in September 2021.
