The floodgates are open: the first leaks that show us what the Galaxy S21 could look like are here. Two different sources have released renders of what appears to be the smallest of the three expected Galaxy S21 models, showing a major new design change that you may or may not like.
As you can see in the images below, the rear camera case appears to extend from the metal frame of the device to the back of the phone.
First Galaxy S21 renderings show major design changes
Including the camera shock, the thickness of the Galaxy S21 should be 9 mm. This suggests that the Ultra model, with its periscope zoom lens and 108-megapixel camera, might have an even thicker bump, which may not be unlike the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
It looks a lot more normal on the front, though the Galaxy S21
The Galaxy S21 is said to have a 6.2-inch display, so it corresponds exactly to that of the Galaxy S20. At 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9 mm, it has almost the same footprint as the Galaxy S20 with 151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9 mm. The camera body seems to be the only design surprise for the Galaxy S21. With subtle curves on the back and rounded edges, the rest is typical of Samsung.
This design language is used for all three Galaxy S21 models. If these representations are actually correct, we can get a rough idea of what the list will look like. There is nothing to suggest that the Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra will throw their curved displays or glass back overboard.
Now that the floodgates are open, we’re definitely going to see a lot more leaks from Samsung’s next flagship smartphone. Fans no longer have to wait long for these devices. We have already announced that Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S21 series in early January 2021.
