As we approach Samsung’s alleged Unpacked event on January 14, the frequency of leaks has really increased. Just yesterday, we got our first print render of the front of the Galaxy S21. Today, even more renders have leaked for press, showing the redesigned camera module and different colors in the gamut.
The latest renders were shared on Twitter by Ishan Agarwal, who said the new colors are called Phantom Violet, Phantom Pink, Phantom Gray and Phantom White. It’s a really nice color list; the Phantom Violet stands out as my favorite, although it’s hard to beat the stealthy look of the Phantom Gray.
With these press renders in the wild, nothing is really left to the imagination ahead of Samsung’s next event. As we have seen from other leaked images, the Galaxy S21 series will feature a display with a very minimal bezel, a perforation cutout for the front camera, and a camera module that has been redesigned. It looks high-end and improved over the Galaxy S20 series.
What these renders don’t show is whether or not the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be equipped with S Pen support. Although there have been mixed reports of Samsung ditching the Note series, rumors suggest the company is bringing its stylus to its Galaxy S line for the first time in its history. That would be a major change and potentially give the Galaxy S21 Ultra an edge over the competition.
Shortly after the images of the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus were leaked, WinFuture has released some press renders of the Galaxy S21 Ultra which reveal that Samsung is doing everything with the premium device. The camera module appears to feature four different lenses, highlighted by what is said to be a 108MP sensor and a cutout for laser autofocus. Despite there being an array of sensors, the camera hump is elegantly integrated into the design, which presumably has a Phantom Silver finish.

With rumors that Samsung will hold an Unpacked event on January 14, it won’t be long before the Galaxy S21 series goes official. But considering how frequent losses have been in recent times, we will probably see a lot more of the lineup before that date arrives.
