How can these Galaxy S21 fan renders look better than the real thing?

These newly emerged Galaxy S21 fan renders are so sleek, they’ll probably leave us disappointed with the real thing. Not that we aren’t ready to eat those words quite gladly, mind you. It’s just that the next high-end smartphone range from Samsung already leaked so extensively that any major design surprises seem extremely unlikely at this point. But anyway, the shiny renders, let’s move on to those.

This astonishing imagery comes from Dutch tech outlet LetsGoDigital, i.e. its in-house designer Giuseppe Spinelli. All included depictions of the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra are based on previously leaked specifications of Samsung’s next-generation Android flagship line. Most notably, the revealing CAD renders shared by known industry insider Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks.

Will Samsung reach its full-screen design goal next year?

And while the Galaxy S21 may not have substantial aesthetical surprises in store for us, that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot to look forward to from Samsung’s smartphone design efforts in 2021. As the Korean tech giant is now mere inches away from at last reaching its long-pursued goal of full-screen, zero-bezel mobile displays.

Perhaps the most crucial piece(s) of the puzzle required before we see Samsung hit that elusive milestone are under-display cameras. This tech has reportedly been giving Samsung a lot of trouble lately, and it spent several years trying to commercialize it by now. So it’s definitely the one to watch as the biggest bottleneck of the company’s 2021 product efforts.

Thing Samsung will set net smartphone design trends next year? Could anyone realistically surprise its highly refined metal-and-glass language in the immediate future?
