More images purportedly showing the Galaxy S21 have leaked online.


Samsung's Galaxy S21 will reportedly launch this coming January, but in another leak ahead of the scheduled release, official product images are now available, thanks to German tech publication Winfuture.

While images of the new S21 phones have circulated for some time, these appear to be the first official images, rather than early marketing images. These represent the latest in a series of rumors and leaks about the upcoming S21 launch.

Tipster Evan Blass revealed another 32 leaked images of the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G later Thursday, showing the phone from all angles in four different colors: Peach, lavender, white and black. You can see those on his post on Voice.

It comes after the first official renders of the phone reportedly leaked last week showing the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G in a lavender shade, with a hole-punch camera and small bezel on the front of the device. The rear render shows a purple and bronze appearance with a triple camera array, which is rumored to come with a 12-megapixel lens, 12MP ultrawide and 64MP telephoto camera.

The announcement of the Galaxy S21 series will reportedly happen during Samsung Unpacked on Jan. 14, with availability on Jan. 29.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra is also reported to have a 5,000-mAh battery and a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display.

Samsung didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
