New leaks reveal the design and measurements of the Samsung Galaxy S21
With the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S20 FE done and dusted, Samsung is already looking towards its next premium device, the Galaxy S21. The Galaxy S21 is reportedly set for an early 2021 launch—as is customary with phones in the series—and more information has now surfaced.
A tweet by popular tipster @OnLeaks has, for the first time, revealed the design of the Samsung Galaxy S21. Going by the images shared, the Galaxy S21 will build on the design of the S20. The phone is depicted with a rectangular camera module which admittedly looks cleaner than that of the Galaxy S20.
As expected, the phone sports three rear cameras. We expect the hardware to be quite similar to the Galaxy S20's albeit with some improvements. At the front of the phone sits a centered hole punch, which should be smaller than the hole on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra—if the shared renders are anything to go by. Also, the Galaxy S21 appears to sport a completely flat display.
Meanwhile, another tipster, @iceuniverse, has revealed the dimensions of the Galaxy S21. Supposedly, the S21 will have measurements of 151.7mm x 71.2mm x 8mm. For some perspective, the Galaxy S20 dials in at 151.7mm x 69.1mm x 7.9mm. That means that the S21 will be slightly wider than its predecessor, while also being 0.1mm thicker.

The wider bezel also has a poor hand feel. The S21 is wider and more difficult to grasp.
