Samsung expects Galaxy S21's total shipments to match Galaxy S20

Yordan, 26 January 2021

The initial demand for the Galaxy S21 lineup in may be higher than that for the Galaxy S20, but Samsung isn't getting carried away. The Korean company expects to ship 26 million units of the new phones - exactly the same amount as last year’s Galaxy S20.

Sources say that despite the fact the S21 is a more attractive lineup than its predecessor, people won’t be able to visit offline stores as much, affecting sales in general. At the same time, Samsung underestimated demand for Ultra, causing a shortage in supply and missing on some sales.

Out of all 26 million units, 10 million are expected to be of the vanilla Galaxy S21, 8 million to be Galaxy S21+, and the other 8 million - Galaxy S21 Ultra. Industry insiders revealed components orders have already been sent to factories, although there's always the possibility of adjusting the quantities down the road.

At least the cost was only $50 to go from 128GB of storage to 256GB. In the past it was $100. So I went with the 256GB version since there was no SD card option. And with the plastic back, I notice no difference with the plastic back on the S21...

yes many people care 1440p.... if you say acceptable even 720 looks good and is acceptable because phone screen size is small. 1440 when you screen youtube in 1440 resolution you notice the difference compare to 1080 way sharper... for playing...

Thats not possible. Far more expensive than S20 by excluding charger and earphones. This will not sell as S20 not even half of the sales. Samsung is nothing just a thief. Robbery on a customers is all they do.
