Samsung’s next flagship phone could arrive in January 2021, Android Central reported. And new leaked renderings show that the Galaxy S20’s camera bump will also feature in the upcoming Galaxy S30 (or S21; the name isn’t official yet).
According to Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks), the standard model Galaxy S30 will have a 6.2-inch flat screen with a hole-punch front camera. The S30 Ultra features a larger curved screen measuring between 6.7 and 6.9 inches. However, the leaks do not provide details on the phones’ internal specifications.
Android Central indicates 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, says Hemmerstoffer, but there doesn’t appear to be a dedicated slot for the pen. The camera bump on the Ultra appears to be twice the size of the standard model and can have up to four lenses, according to Hemmerstoffer; he assumes this will include wide and ultra-wide lenses as well as a telephoto or periscope. The Ultra’s flash will be housed in the bump.
If the new Galaxy S models launch in January, it would be weeks before Samsung’s traditional end-February period. And, as Android Central points out, it would be the closest that Samsung has timed the release of a new Galaxy S phone to a new iPhone version – iPhone 12 models will be released later this month and early next.
