It has already announced the flagship Samsung Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy F52, Galaxy M12, and a bunch of other offerings. Rumours are rife that Samsung has lined up a handful of more upcoming mobile phones to launch in 2021 globally as well as in India. The ones that we know so far include Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, Samsung Galaxy A21, Samsung Galaxy F52, and Samsung Galaxy Jump.

Samsung Galaxy Jump
Samsung Galaxy Jump is believed to be the rebranded version of the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G, which has not been launched in the handful of markets, including India, yet. The Samsung Galaxy Jump specifications are said to be pretty much the same as the Galaxy A32 5G, except for a few things. The rebranded Jump will reportedly pack 6GB RAM instead of 8GB and slightly lower display resolution. The phone could be powered by MediaTek Dimensity 720 chipset, which consists of two high-power Cortex-A76 cores six Cortex-A55 cores, coupled with an ARM Mali G57 MC3 GPU and 5G modem.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is another foldable smartphone the South Korean manufacturer has reportedly been working on.
