Samsung Galaxy S21 5G leaks in full with new camera bump, flat display

Rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S21 series have been floating around for some time and, with three months left until the announcement, a lot of confusion remains. Fortunately, Steve Hemmerstoffer is here with the very first renders of Samsung’s next-gen flagships.

Samsung has a new camera bump in the works

Pictured today is the standard Galaxy S21 5G model. It boasts a revised look that centers around an all-new camera design that creates a more unique look.

Samsung has replaced the rather boring all-black camera bump used on the Galaxy S20 with one that matches the phone’s color. Each individual sensor is highlighted inside the area, much like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, and the bump itself curves over the metal frame. 

There seem to be no plans to add extra cameras next year – Samsung has fitted the Galaxy S21 with three cameras on the rear – but the usual sensor upgrades for better overall results are to be expected. 

Few changes have been made to the front

The Galaxy S20 received praise for its minimalistic front design and Samsung has taken that response on board. The 5G Galaxy S21 looks almost identical to its predecesor by adopting a 6.2-inch punch-hole display complete with minimal bezels, although the chin does appear slimmer than before. 

All of this means that the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S20 are almost exactly the same size. Both phones are 151.7mm tall and 7.9mm thick without taking the camera bump into account, although there is a slight difference in width – the Galaxy S21 is 71.2mm wide, whereas the Galaxy S20 was only 69.1mm wide. 

Other features visible in the renders include a bottom-firing speaker and a USB-C port. Sitting on the right side of the frame is the usual power button and volume rocker. As was the case last year, there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack. 

Samsung Galaxy S21 specs and features

The Samsung Galaxy S21 should launch with the upcoming Snapdragon 875 in the United States and the next-generation Exynos 1000 or 2100 in Europe and other international markets.

Those chipsets will likely be coupled with a minimum of 12GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, although other configurations with more storage and possibly extra RAM should be available too.

As for the battery, the Galaxy S21 is expected to arrive with the same 4,000mAh battery used inside the Galaxy S20. Support for 25W power adapters is expected too, although these might not be included inside the box.
