The famous leaker Ice Universe now claims that the Galaxy S21 Ultra will launch as the phone with the "narrowest chin in history" on its launch. This is due to new renders that show a device with practically non-existent bezels. Meanwhile, one of this upcoming flagship's smaller siblings might have been approved for sale in India.

The successors to the Galaxy S20 and S20+ are currently thought to launch with flat screens, whereas their Ultra counterpart might stick with a curving display panel on its own debut. According to a new leak, this design choice has been made in order to allow Samsung to push the boundaries of edge-to-edge tech even further with this new flagship.

Ice Universe has posted a set of renders, allegedly belonging to the S21 Ultra, that show a virtual absence of top and bottom bozel. The sides are taken care of with pronounced curves that could indeed lead on from its possible 2020 forebear. Otherwise, the CAD-modelled phone looks more or less standard, with a USB type C charging port, a mic hole and a bottom-firing speaker grille.

On that note, this bottom edge lacks other distinguishing features, a silo that would indicate the S21 Ultra's rumored S Pen support included. It is also likely that this device will retain a punch-hole selfie camera, which would interrupt its otherwise apparently true-full-screen effect. In other S21 news, a pair of devices that might be this series' base models have reportedly been certified by the Indian authority BIS.

They are the SM-G990F/DS and SM-G991B/DS, which might correspond to the Galaxy S20 4G/LTE (SM-G980x) and 5G (SM-G981x) respectively. They have been certified alongside a mystery new product called the SM-G501B/DS.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
