eaks around the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S30 (a.k.a. Galaxy S21) are coming thick and fast. Following recent rumors of the phones entering mass-production earlier than ever, leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer has revealed the design of the Galaxy S30 on his Voice page. Hemmerstoffer, who also goes by @OnLeaks, published CAD renders of an S30 with a 6.2-inch display, hole-punch selfie camera and more uniform bezels than the Galaxy S20. These kinds of renders have proven to be accurate in the past, and Hemmerstoffer has a solid track record.
Around the back of the Galaxy S30, there’s a new-style camera module that seems to extend from the phone’s outer frame. Dimensions are quoted as being 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9mm, making the S30 slightly wider than the S20, but otherwise very close in size to its predecessor.
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 slot for the pen. The camera bump on the Ultra looks to be twice as large as the standard model and may have up to four lenses, according to Hemmerstoffer; he surmises that will include wide and ultra-wide lenses plus a telephoto or periscope lens. The flash on the Ultra will be housed within the bump.
If the new Galaxy S models do launch in January, that would be weeks ahead of Samsung’s traditional late-February timeframe. And it would be the closest Samsung has timed the release of a new Galaxy S phone to a new iPhone release.
