The first official press image of the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G has leaked, courtesy of Evan Blass. The usually-reliable leaker has shown the front of the device so far, along with confirming details about the trio of Galaxy S21 devices. You may have a hard time distinguishing the Galaxy S21 from the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20 FE, though.

Evan Blass has leaked the first press shot of the Galaxy S21 5G, although you would be hard-pressed to say what is different about it compared to the Galaxy S20 series. Below is the Galaxy S21 5G next to the Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy S20 (from right to left), underlining the similarities between Samsung's next flagship and its current ones.

In our opinion, the design of the Galaxy S21 is a hybrid between the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 FE. The Galaxy S21 appears to have a visible slit for a speaker, for example, like the Galaxy S20 FE. Additionally, the Galaxy S21 has a flat display, unlike the Galaxy S20 - make of that what you will. Samsung still cannot produce a device with symmetrical bezels though, despite Apple's and Google's successes in that department.

The biggest design change to the Galaxy S series is its rear-facing camera array, on which we have already reported. Blass adds that the Galaxy S21 will have a 6.2-inch display, which is the same panel size as the Galaxy S20. Likewise, a 6.7-inch display will be headed to the Galaxy S21+, while the Galaxy S21 Ultra will feature a 6.8-inch panel. Additionally, Blass expects Samsung to equip the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ with triple rear-facing cameras, of which a 64 MP sensor will be the primary. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will include Samsung's new 108 MP sensor, in a similar vein to the Galaxy S20 Ultra this year.

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S21 series on January 14 at a Galaxy UNPACKED event. Pre-orders should begin before the end of January.
