Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S21 series offerings have leaked heavily in the past few month, with details such as the specs, press renders, launch plans, and more already making it to the web. The rumors also suggest that the South Korean firm might be planning to slash the prices of the smartphones – at least for the entry-tier model. A new report from WinFuture today details the possible prices of the devices, at least in Germany.
The report states that all models will support 5G and start with 128GB of internal storage. The entry-level Galaxy S21 is expected to start from €849, with the 256GB model expected to be priced at €899, making it a €50 upgrade for double the storage. These prices, if true, make it €50 cheaper than the Galaxy S20’s prices at launch in the country.
Similarly, the Galaxy S21+ is expected to cost slightly less than its predecessor. The 128GB and 256GB variants are expected to cost €1,049 and €1,099, respectively. However, the report does add that the company might be getting rid of the microSD slot in the S21 and S21+, similar to the Note20.
The top-of-the-line Galaxy S21 Ultra, however, will supposedly launch at prices identical to its predecessor. The 128GB base model is said to set customers back by €1,349, with an extra €50 bumping up the storage to €1,399. The topmost variant with 512GB of internal storage is expected to cost a whopping €1,529.
Here are the prices for the lineup, according to the publication:
- Samsung Galaxy S21
- 128GB - €849
- 256GB - €899
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus
- 128GB - €1,049
- 256GB - €1,099
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra
- 128GB - €1,349
- 256GB - €1,399
- 512GB - €1,529
Samsung is expected to equip the Galaxy S21 and S21+ with FullHD+ displays and a plastic back panel, which might also explain the slight price cut. Earlier reports suggest that the decision to slash the prices slightly might come from the economic changes caused by the pandemic. Today’s report also corroborates earlier reporting from 91mobiles about the possible prices of the offerings in the European region.
These prices reported here are expected to be applicable in Germany, but they might differ slightly in other European markets owing to different taxes other aspects. It will be interesting how the firm prices the devices in markets like the U.S. The S21 series is expected to be unveiled on January 21.
