Official press images show the Samsung Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ in all colours
There have been plenty of leaks about the Galaxy S21 series in the last few days, including a press render from Evan Blass. Now, Ishan Agarwal and Roland Quandt have leaked official images of the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ - Samsung's entry-level and mid-tier Galaxy S offerings in 2021. The two devices share plenty of visual similarities though, as the image below shows.
According to Quandt, Samsung will sell the Galaxy S21 in four colours. The Galaxy S21+ will be available in fewer colours, but it will have a glass back, instead of the plastic one that Samsung has reputedly chosen for the Galaxy S21. The other main difference between the two devices is size, with the Galaxy S21+ supposedly having a 0.5-inch larger display than the Galaxy S21.
Undoubtedly, the redesigned rear-facing camera housing is one of the more striking elements of the Galaxy S21 series. The new renders show that the frame of both devices wraps up to the edge of the camera house, unlike many other smartphones. The effect is less noticeable on the white and silver version, but it looks particularly striking with the gold and purple one.
Both devices are expected to arrive with the Snapdragon 888 in the US, and perhaps China. However, most markets will receive Exynos 2100 variants. The same applies to the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Samsung will unveil all three devices on January 14 at a Galaxy UNPACKED event - probably another live-streamed one.
