Renders of Samsung’s upcoming flagships, expected to be called the S21 series, have been making the rounds for a while now. The devices are expected to sport massive camera bumps – especially the Galaxy S21 Ultra – which extend all the way to the chassis. Now, new live images have emerged, corroborating earlier reporting and leaked renders.
The images, posted by sakitech on Twitter, reportedly feature the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the S21+ placed next to each other. The larger of the two, the S21 Ultra, features four cameras at the rear, two of which are reportedly telephoto sensor. This falls in line with earlier reporting about the device sporting both a periscope camera for 10X zoom and a secondary 64MP telephoto camera good for 3X zoom. The other two lenses are supposedly the 12MP ultra-wide lens and a second-generation 108MP unit for the main camera.
The S21+, on the other hand, seems to sport a smaller camera bump that houses a trio of cameras, retaining the S20+’s setup. The main camera and the ultra-wide-angle duties are said to be done by 12MP units, accompanied by a 64MP sensor telephoto lens. The device does seem to omit the ToF sensor from its predecessor.
Samsung is expected to unveil the devices sometime in January, earlier than its usual release schedule. Rumors suggest that the devices will be priced lower than its predecessors due to the financial effects brought about by the pandemic.
