Leak: Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus render arrives in shiny silver colorway
- New Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus renders have leaked.
- The renders contain a number of design cues we’ve seen in earlier leaks.
- These include the redesigned rear camera array and the punch hole selfie camera.
More alleged renders of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus have broken cover, echoing design cues that were present on previous mockups.
Arriving via a collab between Twitter tipster @Xleaks7 and Italian site Pigtou, the renders feature design elements seen in earlier leaks. The major difference here is the polished silver colorway used. It’s unclear if Samsung is poised to brighten the S20’s current gray livery, or if it’s a choice made by the designers. Either way, it’s pretty hot.
Let’s get into the actual design. The render includes a reworked rear camera array which occupies much of the phone’s top-left corner. There’s not quite enough space to include the LED flash though, so it’s mounted to the right of the three large lenses. One of those lenses reportedly hides a 64MP primary sensor with two additional 12MP sensors playing support.
The right-hand flank of the Galaxy S21 Plus will seemingly house the volume rocker (which seems to be pretty far up the phone) and power button. Samsung’s likely to retain the in-display fingerprint sensor, too.
Upfront, the selfie camera cutout is mounted pretty close to the top bezel. As for bezels, they’re razor-thin on this particular render. Earlier hardware leaks point to a 6.8-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate. A 4,000mAh battery will reportedly keep either an Exynos 2100 or Snapdragon 875 chipset alive in the various global models.

While not much is provided specs-wise in this leak, exact dimensions are provided. The Galaxy S21 Plus is said to measure 161.55mm long, 75.6mm wide, and just 7.86mm thick. This would make it slightly shorter and a little wider than the Galaxy S20 Plus. Any larger, and Samsung could ruin the flagship’s usability.
It’s still believed that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S21 series in January 2021 — we’ve seen no evidence to the contrary thus far. But no concrete date has been given by the Korean firm just yet.
