It didn’t take long from the first real images with the Galaxy S21 to receive the first images that seem to come from official sources with the new top models from Samsung. These are a few short frames, only a few seconds, taken from what appears to be a promotional clip, which presents the phones in two shades: Phantom Violet and Phantom Black. These images confirm the design of the cameras on the Galaxy S21 models, with a pronounced module, which continues on the sides of the devices.
Galaxy S21 is approaching launch, official images with the phones already reaching the internet
According to the new images, it seems that Samsung will adopt a design in two color tones, the frame and the camera being one color and the back of the devices a different color. It also seems that the glass module that frames the cameras is separate from the metal frame on the sides, although it seemed from the unofficial images that it was a single component. However, positioning the camera so close to the edge could bring new concerns in case of accidents, the cameras being much more exposed to mechanical shocks from the sides.
The Galaxy S21 model is presented in the color Phatom Violet, ie matte purple, with golden accents for the camera and the metal frame. It is rumored that the standard Galaxy S21 will benefit from a back cover made of plastic, while the S21 + and 21 Ultra models will be made using glass.
These images also show a Galaxy S21 Ultra in Phantom Black, with four cameras and a laser beam for focusing. It is not in two tones, all components are black. On the sides, the metal appears to be glossy, which can reflect light, while the back is completely matte. The details available at the moment suggest that the new models will not have significantly different cameras in terms of hardware compared to last year, but the S21 Ultra will receive a 3x zoom camera.
The launch event is expected on January 14, while the launch of the Galaxy S21 series in stores could take place before the end of this month. Earlier, the Galaxy S20 models were announced in February, launching in stores in March.
