Samsung Galaxy S21 (Galaxy S30) – Here’s our first look at its design
Samsung usually unveils its Galaxy “S” series flagships every year in the first quarter & we don’t think the company is going to change its launch timeline next year. This year, Samsung made a slight change to the naming as the company launched the “S20” series after the “S10” series of 2019. But in 2021, things might change again as it is rumoured that we are getting the Samsung Galaxy S21 series instead of Galaxy S30.
The biggest design change from this year’s Galaxy S20 is on the rear where there is now a slightly different design for the camera module. This camera module design is something we have never seen on any Samsung device. The back seems to have a matte finish, but the camera module has a glossy finish & it seems to extend to the side frame.
The front isn’t much different except for the fact that the renders show very minimal bottom chin.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 (or S30) has a USB Type-C port on the bottom along with the primary speaker grill & there is no headphone jack which is not a surprise. As per Steve, the display is roughly 6.2-inches in size, so if that’s the case, then there is no change in the display size compared to the Galaxy S20.
Excluding the camera bump, the Galaxy S21 is just 7.9mm thick (9.0mm with the camera module). The launch is rumoured to take place in January 2020, so this time, Samsung has decided to launch the Galaxy S21 series earlier than usual.
