That was quick: According to media reports, Samsung started mass production of the new Galaxy S21 earlier than expected. This gives new nourishment to previous rumors that spoke of an earlier release of the top smartphone. An early presentation should be directed against a competitor.

After the Galaxy S20 was presented in February 2020, the successor could see the light of day a month earlier. Corresponding reports have been circulating for a few weeks and are now receiving new impetus from the mobile communications insider Rolandt Quandt on WinFuture .

Samsung Galaxy S21: mass production of the smartphone has started

According to Quandt, the South Korean manufacturer is said to have started mass production of the Samsung Galaxy S21. The basis for this is information that should come from the Samsung environment and the supply chain. Components from third-party manufacturers that are required for the final production of the Samsung Galaxy S21 are said to have already been delivered to Samsung's factories in Vietnam and South Korea. Since these are usually "not stored for a long time", but used immediately according to the principle of just-in-time production, large quantities of the Galaxy S21 are said to be imminent or already started.

Specifically, these are components for the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and S21 Plus. The smallest variant has not yet been explicitly mentioned, but the standard model is also likely to be in production. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will have the model number SM-G998, the Galaxy S21 will operate under the name SM-G996.

Samsung recently scored points with a new edition of the Galaxy S20:

Early release targets iPhone 12

With an early release of the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung could try to take the wind out of the sails of Apple's iPhone 12. Due to Corona, the latest iPhone generation was presented around a month later than usual and the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the iPhone 12 Mini can only be pre-ordered from the beginning of November and will probably only be widely available in December. If the Galaxy S21 is presented a month later, this could possibly make one or the other new buyer switch.
