Samsung's Galaxy S21 will debut at Jan. 14 Unpacked event

From CNET: The new year will bring some earlier-than-normal goodies from Samsung. The South Korean electronics giant has sent out invites for its first Unpacked of 2021, which will take place at 7 a.m. PT on Jan. 14 -- about a month earlier than last year and on the final day of CES. It touted "Welcome to the Everyday Epic" as the theme for the event, where the latest version of its Galaxy S smartphone is expected to make its debut.

"Over the past year, mobile technology has taken center stage in everyday life as people are working remotely and spending more time at home," Samsung said. "The accelerated transition to a mobile-first world brings with it the need for devices that can transform everyday life into an extraordinary experience."

Samsung likely will have three different models of the flagship phone: the 6.2-inch S21, the 6.7-inch S21 Plus and the 6.8-inch S21 Ultra. The devices are expected to look largely the same but have bigger camera modules, boosting their photo and video capabilities.

The company may also discontinue its Galaxy Note line this year and replace it with S Pen support on its Galaxy S21 Ultra. Early renders don't show a visible location for a stylus, which may mean it has to be housed separately from the phone when not in use. On Samsung's popular -- but niche -- Note lineup, the stylus slides into the device for storage.
