- Reliable liver Steve Hemmerstoffer (also known as @OnLeaks) has just released renderings that supposedly depict the Samsung Galaxy S30.
- The phone has a new camera design that makes the impact much weaker.
- This is a very early expiration for the Galaxy S series, which suggests that Samsung may launch the phone earlier than usual.
Earlier today, the reliable smartphone Steve Hemmerstoffer published several images, which he claims are from the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S30. Galaxy S phones usually start to expire this way by the end of December or the beginning of January. However, as there are many rumors suggesting that Samsung may release its latest flagships much earlier than usual in 2021, these early leaks seem to support these rumors.
You can see the leaked images below. Keep in mind that Hemmerstoffer has a lot of influence when it comes to leaks like these, but they are still leaks. As such, take them with the proverbial grain of salt.
Samsung Galaxy S30 renders
For protocol, Hemmerstoffer says these renders are for the vanilla Galaxy S30, i.e. the smallest in the series, as far as we know. He says it measures approximately 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9 mm. However, the last measurement increases to 9.0 mm when you turn on the camera bulge.
Speaking of camera impact, it seems to be much more modest in this design compared to the Galaxy S20 series (and especially the Galaxy Note 20 series). We can’t conclude anything just from the renderings, but it seems that Samsung has included the expansion module directly in the body of the phone. If this is true, it’s a pretty brilliant way to keep the thickness of the module in favor of better photo quality, while not increasing the thickness of the phone by that much.
As expected, the renderings also show a centered selfie camera within the cutout of the display (this time there is no camera in the display) and the lack of a headphone jack. It seems that Samsung is fully committed to going without the 3.5mm port in its flagships forever.
