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 showing what the phone might look like.
The renderings are polite with the experienced tipster @OnLeaks posting a series of photos showing the upcoming phone from all angles (embedded below). Considering the source’s track record, these images should be fairly accurate.
You will notice that there is a major design change with regard to the rear camera where the camera unit appears to be wrapped around the top corner of the unit. Our first impressions are quite positive, but of course your mileage can vary.

- Galaxy S21
- We have been looking at the future of home training
The new design actually looks like an evolution of what we saw with the Galaxy S20 and Note 20 rear cameras, all located in the top left corner on the back of the handsets. It’s definitely something a little different.
Around the front, it does not look like much has changed in terms of the aesthetics of the phone – there is still the hole camera in the middle at the top of the screen, as we saw on both the Galaxy S20 and Note 20.
The front display is said to be “approximately” 6.2 inches corner to corner, while the overall dimensions are tilted to be 151.7 mm x 71.2 mm x 7.9 mm (5.9 inches x 2.8 inches x 0.31 inches). The camera bump apparently adds an additional 1.1 mm or 0.04 inches.
Also from the same source: the January launch is apparently happening, which is a month earlier than Samsung usually launches its Galaxy S series handsets. Maybe the company wants to get a head start on its rivals in 2021.
From what we have heard so far, it looks like Samsung is going to go with the Galaxy S21 naming instead of following the 10-digit leap that happened between the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S20.
