Samsung has opened the pre-order / registration process in China for the Galaxy S21 series. On its official website, the company revealed that people can pay CNY100 (around $ 15) upfront which will be deducted from the final price later.

The Samsung China website does not call the Galaxy S21 by name – it used the code phrase “first flagship for 2021”, while the landing page is called “Samsung’s first 5G flagship of 2021”, revealing that China will get the 5G variants of the phone (which is hardly a surprise).
Interestingly, people who decide not to buy the smartphone will receive a refund of 100 CNY. However, those who decide to ring together could be one of 21 selected users who will receive the phone for free.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 line is expected to arrive on January 14, 2021, and actual pre-orders are expected to begin after launch. China’s approach to pre-orders is a little different – users actually sign up to receive news when the actual pre-order starts.
The fact that Samsung is already going through this process means that the launch is closer than ever and we are about to see new flagships soon.
