The latest Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra renders show a display that might be more edge-to-edge than ever before
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.
