Yesterday we heard that the Samsung Galaxy S21 (alternatively known as the Galaxy S30) could arrive as early as January. Today we have another leak to report: the first pictures show what the phone might look like.
The renders are from veteran tipster @OnLeaks who posted a plethora of images showing the upcoming phone from all angles (embedded below). Given the source’s track record, these images should be pretty accurate.
You will find that there is a major design change to the rear camera as the camera unit appears to wrap around the top corner of the device. Our first impressions are pretty positive, but of course your mileage may vary.

The new design actually looks like an evolution of what we saw with the Galaxy S20 and Note 20 rear cameras, all of which are on the top left of the back of the handsets. It is certainly something else.
On the front, it doesn’t look like much has changed in terms of the phone’s aesthetics. In the middle at the top of the display is still the pinhole camera, as we saw on both the Galaxy S20 and the Note 20.
The front display is said to be “approximately” 6.2 inches from corner to corner, while the overall dimensions are 151.7 mm by 71.2 mm by 7.9 mm (5.9 in by 2.8 in by 0.31 in) . The camera bump apparently adds an additional 1.1mm or 0.04 inches.
Also from the same source: The January launch appears to be happening, a month earlier than Samsung normally launches its Galaxy S-series phones. Perhaps the company wants to give its competitors a head start in 2021.
From what we’ve heard so far, it’s likely that Samsung will use the Galaxy S21 name instead of following the 10-digit jump between the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S20.
