We’re around the corner through 2021, and Samsung is expected to reveal that Galaxy S21 on January 14th. Now we’re getting a whole new look at what to expect from the flagship.
Samsung hasn’t released any official photos of the Galaxy S21 yet, so courtesy of Twitter MauriQHDwho claims to have received these pictures from a friend, we have our first real look at the phone. And the bezels look even thinner than that iPhone 12 – Without the unsightly notch.
Offering a clear view of the phone, the images confirm what we’ve heard and seen, as well as rumors and a series of photos that have been showcased by insiders and tidbits. The front display has nearly symmetrical frames that are a little difficult to see due to the censored areas of the leaked photos. It is obvious, however, that it is an extremely sleek looking flat panel display.
The leaker turned the phone over to reveal its back as well. It is unclear whether the back of the phone is made of glass or plastic. The leaked photo shows a light purple and gold setup that appears dull under the lighting conditions. There is also a sticker that says “No Photos Allowed” and “No Information Disclosed” but it seems it is far too late for all of these warnings.
For the curious, there is also a look at the camera’s cutout, which confirms that the phone will not have a camera under the display after all. Nevertheless, the cutout is quite small and inconspicuous, especially with the noticeably flat surface of the S21.
However, we’re taking a close look at the phone’s triple camera array, which looks very attractive in the real world beyond the renders and close-ups seen in the past. If the cameras meet the rumored S21 specs, the setup will include an ultra-wide 12MP sensor, a 12MP main sensor, and a 64MP telephoto lens. Android police Previously reported Samsung will add 100x room zoom in addition to the S21 Ultra’s laser autofocus to help curb some of the focus issues of last year’s model.
While successful leaker Evan Blass has offered several high quality photos and renders of the device in the past, it’s still exciting to see the phone that way, as it confirms much of what we’ve already suspected. Of course, it looks like we expected and is pretty similar to the Galaxy S20 in many ways, which will likely please fans who liked the previous model.
Samsung has not yet officially announced the Galaxy S21 and has not yet discussed rumors about the phone. It’s still racing for an official reveal on January 14th. But if you are interested in buying your own, reserve an opportunity for yourself Pre-order the Galaxy S21 by going to the Samsung website. There you can assert your claim to “the next galaxy”.
These leaked photos and renderings may be all we have by then – but it looks like we’ve learned almost everything about the upcoming smartphone. And from our standpoint, it certainly looks like an impressive competitor.
