Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra teaser videos leak with a focus on cameras


New videos have leaked that confirm multiple details of the Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra ahead of Samsung’s official unveiling. The videos look like official teaser clips made by Samsung.

In the videos from Max Weinbach and Android Police, we can see the camera bumps of all three Galaxy S21 series phones. The design of these camera bumps appear to be the biggest design change that Samsung has made, ditching the standalone rectangles found on the Galaxy S20 phones for a new wraparound design on the S21 models.


The clips show that the Galaxy S21 and S21+ will both have three rear cameras while the Galaxy S21 Ultra will have four. The S21 and S21+ are expected to get 12MP main and 12MP ultra wide cams plus a 64MP telephoto sensor, while the Galaxy S21 Ultra will get a 108MP main cam, 12MP ultra wide, a 10MP 3x optical zoom, and a 10MP 10x optical zoom camera.

Another aspect of the S21 Ultra that’ll be different is the screen. While the Galaxy S21 and S21+ will have flat displays, the S21 Ultra is expected to get a curved edge screen. All three models will have a hole-punch selfie camera centered at the top of their display, just like the Galaxy S20 series.

Finally, these videos confirm the names that Samsung will use for its next Galaxy S flagships, which are Samsung Galaxy S21 5G, Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G, and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G.

It’s expected that Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S21 phones on January 14 with availability to follow on January 29, which is a month or so earlier than Samsung has launched its Galaxy S flagships in recent years. It’s also said that the Galaxy S21 phones will be cheaper. For reference, the S20 launched at $999.99, the S20+ at $1,199.99, and the S20 Ultra at $1,399.99.

Based on what we’ve seen and heard so far, are you interested in the Galaxy S21 series? If so, which model do you think looks best?

    Wow the price has gone up and no appeal for me.

      Samsung hasn’t actually announced the prices for the S21 line yet, but the rumors are that they will cost less than last year.

  • pda96

    So why should people upgrade from S20 to S21 again? Except for the processor, it’s hard to tell these Samsung models apart. Samsung should come out with new phones every two yrs instead.

    • g2a5b0e

      I don’t understand what difference it makes to you how often they come out. Plenty of people buy them every year. Instead of recommending that Samsung comes out with a new flagship line every 2 years, you could simply buy a new one every 2 years like plenty of people also do.

    • I upgrade every year. I love having the latest and greatest. But most people I know upgrade every 2-3 years. CHOICE.

      You probably shouldn’t. I don’t think their intention is for you to do so. If you own a 9/10 this is a big upgrade.

        Have the 9 and have been pretty happy with it…but this might just be the right time to upgrade to the S21, with the right deal.

  • Joe

    I have the S20 and only why I’d get the S21 is to have more 5G band support. T-mobile still has a long way to go so I probably won’t upgrade unless I get it almost free with trade in.

  • Jesse

    Cant wait for my e-mail from Samsung Insights to get my upgrade going. Will be nice to have less of a bump out on the camera.

  • Bumblebee

    you accidentally typed wrong price comparisons; s20/21+/21+u

      Fixed it. Thanks!

  • MachoMachoMan007

    I really wish Samsung would produce a smaller flagship. I’m not a big iPhone guy, but I do like that with the 12 they introduced the mini. Was hoping Samsung would do something similar

    • marque2

      5g takes a lot of power, this increased the size of the average phone so that larger batteries could be put in.

      Supposedly Qualcomm figured out how to make 5G, esp mmWave 5g, more efficient in the Snapdragon 888.

    • Galaxy S20 FE wasn’t small enough?

      • nalej85

        The S20 FE (6.5 inch) is bigger than the base S20 (6.2 inch). I’d love to have a smaller phone to choose from.. WITHOUT losing flagship features

  • Well guess ill skip the Galaxy s20 then..
