At the beginning of this week, GizmoChina carried an exclusive report to reveal that the Xiaomi Mi 11 series will debut in China on Dec. 29. While Xiaomi is yet to officially confirm the launch date of the Xiaomi Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro handsets, Samsung has started receiving pre-orders of the Galaxy S21 series through its official website. It was reported in the previous week that Samsung began receiving blind orders of the Galaxy S21 lineup in India.
Users in China can participate in the advanced reservations for the Galaxy S21 series by paying 100 Yuan. This will allow customers to apply for discounts and participate in a lucky draw. As many as 21 units of the Galaxy S21 series will be given out for free through the lucky draw in China. Also, customers who participate in the reservations will have mysterious purchase rights and a 10 precent increased pricing for a trade-in handset.
Samsung is expected to officially announce the Galaxy S21 series on Jan. 14. It is likely that it will be arriving in various markets including China by the end of January. Hence, there is a possibility that Xiaomi could be the world’s first company to announce the Snapdragon 888 powered flagships.
China will be treated with the Snapdragon 888 version of the Galaxy S21 models. The U.S. and South Korea are believed to be other markets to receive SD88 editions of the Galaxy S21 series. The Exynos 2100 powered S21 models will be aimed towards markets like India and Europe.
The rumor mill has already revealed the entire specifications of the Galaxy S21v, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra. The official images of the S21 trio have also appeared. As far as pricing is concerned, there are speculations that the Galaxy S21 lineup could be arriving with cheaper price tags as compared to the Galaxy S20 series due to economic problems that have resulted from the ongoing global pandemic.
