It is largely expected that come 2021, Samsung will unveil their new flagship smartphone, which presumably will be known as the Galaxy S21. Now thanks to leaked renders shared by @OnLeaks on Twitter, we might have an idea of what the upcoming handset could look like.
At a glance, the front of the phone doesn’t seem to be too big of a departure from this year’s Galaxy S20, which is not a bad thing if you like the current design. It also appears that for the Galaxy S21, Samsung will continue to retain the hole-punch camera unlike Xiaomi and ZTE who have made some strides in under-display front-facing cameras.
The main difference in design would be the camera setup on the back, where Samsung has opted to kind of meld the camera modules with the body of the phone, instead of keeping it separate. It does look a little strange, but we have to admit that we actually kind of dig the look as it comes across looking more seamless.

The Galaxy S21 will continue to feature a triple camera setup, while the Ultra variant is also expected to use the same design, but with an additional camera. Other than that, not much else is known about the handset for now, save for the fact that it will most likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 chipset for some regions, and the new upcoming Samsung Exynos 2100 for other regions.
Recent benchmarks have shown that the Samsung Exynos 2100 is potentially more powerful than the Snapdragon 875, which could help Samsung address performance complaints from its Exynos markets.
