The specifications of the Galaxy S21 lineup were leaked last month by Max Weinbach of Android Police. He has now shared the alleged official teasers of the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra.
The leaks also hint at the launch and availability dates.
Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra Leaks
Galaxy S21 5G and Galaxy S21+ 5G are teased in the Phantom Violet color. Phantom Pink, Phantom Gray, and Phantom White colors are expected for the S21. Phantom Silver & Phantom Black colors are expected for the S21+.
The design shown off in the teaser incorporates previous CAD renders. The S21 will build on last year’s offering and include a flat display and a center punch-hole on the front.
The camera module will now blend into the edge trim of the device. It will be painted in rose gold for the Phantom Violet colorway.
The Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ will mostly look the same on the exterior.
The only difference between the two will be the plastic and glass back panels respectively. Both S21 and S21+ will feature a triple rear camera setup.
It will consist of a primary 12MP sensor, 64MP telephoto camera, and a 12MP ultra-wide lens.
While Galaxy S21 Ultra won’t have a Phantom Violet variant, it will arrive in two color variants – Phantom Black and Phantom Silver.
The USP of the Ultra model is the presence of a quad-camera setup with a 108MP primary sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide lens, a 10MP super-telephoto periscope lens with 10x zoom, and a 10MP camera with 3x zoom.
The Galaxy S21 is here under model number SM-G991U. The Galaxy S21+ should carry model number SM-996U and the Galaxy S21 Ultra is expected to be SM-G998U.
