With speculation looming that Samsung might launch its S21 series in January, we naturally hope to get more details on upcoming flagships. Well, we got it thanks to the latest set of renders from @onleaks that give us our first look at the Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra. Additionally, the source supports the rumors of the January release.
Both phones come with centered punch holes like their predecessors, with the S21 sporting a 6.2 “flat panel, while the Ultra is between 6.7 and 6.9” with an even more pronounced curvature.
On the back, both phones come with a radically different design. The S21’s camera bulge has grown compared to the S20 and now wraps around the frame of the device. We have three cameras stacked vertically, while the flash is now separated from the camera bulge.
Elsewhere, the design remains largely unchanged down to the button locations. We can detect holes for two microphones on the top and the indicated dimensions of the phone are 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9mm (without the camera bumper).
The S21 Ultra has an even more substantial camera bump around its back with four arranged lenses. Like the Vanilla S21, it wraps around the side of the phone with the frame extending to blend in.
The dimensions listed for the S21 Ultra are 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9mm, while the camera bump adds another 2mm to the overall thickness. The alleged addition of an S-Pen seems to be almost confirmed as wrong.
In addition to the new versions, both the S21 + and its Ultra counterpart were found in China’s 3C certification database. The only useful information from the listings is that both phones will come with a 25W load.
The upcoming Galaxy S models will feature an “EP-TA800” charger which was also confirmed last week when we saw the Galaxy S21 listed by 3C with the same charger.
