Whether it ends up being called the Galaxy S21 or the Galaxy S30, it is quite clear that Samsung is working on a new flagship phone that will probably launch in 2021 to take over Apple’s iPhone 12 lineup.
Thanks to Steve Hammerstoffer, aka @Anlix, we now have a first look at what the Samsung Galaxy S21 might look like. Hemerstoffer published the renders on the social network Voice. And it looks like the release date of the Galaxy S21 could be faster than we thought.
The .2.2-inch device has a pinhole camera from the edge to the center of the display, although people who hate the bezel can rotate how thick the handset’s frame looks. There seems to be an Ice Universe among those who are dissatisfied.

Still, the front camera cutout is much smaller than the notch found on the iPhone 12’s display. Apple did not dig into its new lineup, as many had hoped.
The choice of the most attractive design is on the back of the handset, where the triple-camera housing can be seen wrapped around the edge of the phone. It has a distinctive style and one that looks quite appealing in this render.
It looks like the camera bumps up a bit, which means the phone may vibrate a bit if you put your face on a table (a problem that also affects the Galaxy S20 Ultra). At least you’re getting a third telephoto lens on the Galaxy S21; To get real optical zoom you need to go from iPhone 12 to iPhone 12 Pro.
The Ice Universe also has dimensions for us, although he adds that these are roughly: 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9 mm (or 9 mm for the camera bump). These are approximately equal to the dimensions of the S20, which measures 151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9 mm.
The most exciting news of all is that we can’t wait too long as usual. Samsung has unveiled a new Galaxy S handset in February / March every year since 2013, with Hammerstoffer saying the company will be moving around this time around.
“If you’ve heard rumors that the Galaxy S21 series is expected to launch sooner rather than later, and more specifically in January, know that my own sources support this rumor,” he wrote. “Yes, Samsung will officially launch the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra in January 2021!”
One thing to note here is the S Pen support, which is strongly rumored to come in one form or another in the Galaxy S21 series. However, we’ve heard that Samsung’s own pressure-sensitive Stylus is an optional accessory, which is not entirely surprising: we weren’t expecting to see any holsters on the device.
Otherwise, we expect to get the right specs for the Galaxy S21’s 2021 Samsung flagship. Initial standards didn’t suggest great things from the Exynos 1000 chipset, but Samsung is expected to include a Snapdragon 875 in the US with the handset packing a 108-MP core sensor at the top and a dual telephoto lens for the smartphone. .
