Samsung’s next flagship phone could arrive in January 2021, Android Central reported. And new leaked renders show that the Galaxy S20’s camera bump will also be present in the upcoming Galaxy S30 (or S21; the name isn’t official yet).
According to trusted leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks), the standard Galaxy S30 model will have a 6.2-inch flat screen with a perforated front camera. The S30 Ultra displays a larger, curved screen measuring between 6.7 and 6.9 inches. However, the leaks don’t provide details on the phones’ internal specs.
Android Central states that three new Galaxy S models are expected in the January release, a Standard, a Plus and an Ultra. The Ultra model will have an S-Pen stylus, Hemmerstoffer says, but there doesn’t appear to be a dedicated pen slot. The camera bump on the Ultra appears to be twice as large as the standard model and can have up to four lenses, according to Hemmerstoffer; speculates that it will include wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses plus a telephoto or periscope. The flash on the Ultra will be housed inside the bump.
If the new Galaxy S models were to launch in January, it would be weeks before Samsung’s traditional late February period. And, as Android Central points out, it would be the closest time Samsung plans to release a new Galaxy S phone for a new iPhone release – iPhone 12 models will be released later this month and early next. .
