Samsung is hosting its annual Galaxy Unpacked event today, 14 January. The event is scheduled to begin at 8 pm IST, and will be live-streamed on Samsung’s various social media platforms. At the event, Samsung is expected to unveil the new Galaxy S21 series, which will include the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra. Tonight’s event comes just a couple of days after Samsung’s Exynos event, where the company launches its new Exynos 2100 chipset, which will power the new Galaxy S21 series.
So far, we already know that the Galaxy S21 series will be available for purchase on Amazon India, and will go on sale for the first time during the Amazon Great Republic Day sale between 20 January and 23 January. Which means, pre-order for the new Galaxy smartphones may kick off tonight itself after the launch.
