Samsung will be returning to flat screens for the Galaxy S21 series, according to Ice universe. The 2.5D glass of the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus will be replaced by 2D glass, but the S21 Ultra will have a curved display.

Samsung has reputedly made some notable adjustments to the style of displays it uses on its Galaxy S. According to Ice universe, the Galaxy S21, or S30, series will have uniform bezels. Possibly in a similar vein to the Pixel 5 or recent iPhones, the switch to uniform bezels should result in thinner bottom bezels for Samsung's flagship smartphones. Presumably, this means that Samsung will continue to use punch-hole displays to accommodate a front-facing camera.

Ice universe adds that the Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus will have 2D screens, instead of the 2.5D ones that it used on the Galaxy S20 series. In practice, this means that the S21 and S21 Plus will have flat displays, a trend that has returned to some flagship smartphones in the last year or so. However, 2D screens will be gracing every S21 series handset. Instead, Ice universe states that Samsung has chosen a curved screen for the S21 Ultra, possibly to differentiate its most premium smartphone from the rest of the S21 series.

Meanwhile, the design of the S21 and S21 Ultra have already been leaked by OnLeaks. Published on his Voice account, the leaker has offered a look at 3D CAD renders of the devices, which feature a re-designed rear-facing camera housing, among other minor changes. Rumour has it that Samsung will unveil the S21 series in January 2021.
