Samsung's next Galaxy Unpacked event will officially take place on January 14, as had been expected. The event, which comes on the last day of CES 2021, will see the official unveiling of the thoroughly leaked Galaxy S21 range. The company published a short teaser to mark the occasion showcasing the now familiar wrap-around camera module of the new S21 suggesting its design and photographic capabilities will be a key focus of the launch. Samsung might also take the opportunity to tout the apparent performance parity of its new Exynos 2100 SoC with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888, both of which will be fitted to Galaxy S21 devices depending on region.

The Galaxy S21 range looks to continue Samsung’s profit-driven strategy of fitting plastic rear cases coated in glass (“glasstic”) to the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+. The move continues to be controversial among Samsung fans, although the company continues to cater for high-end power users by reserving a premium all-aluminum build for its Galaxy S21 Ultra. The Ultra is also expected to pick up additional capabilities including upgraded camera optics and support for the S-Pen -- a first for a Galaxy ‘S’ device. However, unlike the Galaxy Note which integrates the S-Pen into a built-in slot, the S21 Ultra will come with one or two optional cases with an S-Pen slot.

Samsung is also expected to reveal at least one other product during the event. Tipsters over the past few days have noticed that Samsung is gearing up for the launch of the Galaxy Buds Pro earphones. These appear to be targeted at Apple’s AirPods Pro range and are expected to include advanced noise-cancellation tech and improved audio performance. Samsung could also reveal the Galaxy Chromebook2 and a potential sequel to the Galaxy Book S -- both devices pick up Galaxy branding as Samsung considers them mobility devices and a Galaxy Unpacked Event could be an ideal place to launch them.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
