- Reliable leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks) just posted renders that allegedly depict the Samsung Galaxy S30.
- The phone has a new camera design that makes the bump much more subdued.
- This is a very early leak for the Galaxy S series, suggesting Samsung could launch the phone earlier than usual.
Earlier today, reliable smartphone leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer posted some images that he claims are of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S30. Usually, Galaxy S phones don’t start leaking like this until late December or early January. However, since there are multiple rumors suggesting Samsung could launch its newest flagships much earlier than usual in 2021, these early leaks appear to back up those rumors.
You can see the leaked images below. Keep in mind that Hemmerstoffer has a ton of clout when it comes to leaks such as these, but these are still leaks. As such, take them with the proverbial grain of salt.
Samsung Galaxy S30 renders
For the record, Hemmerstoffer says these renders are for the vanilla Galaxy S30, i.e. the smallest of the series as far as we know. He says it roughly measures 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9mm. That last measurement increases to 9.0mm when you include the camera bump, though.
Speaking of the camera bump, it looks to be far more subdued in this design as compared to the Galaxy S20 series (and especially the Galaxy Note 20 series). We can’t conclude anything from the renders alone, but it does seem Samsung incorporated the bump module directly into the body of the phone. If that’s true, that’s a pretty brilliant way to keep the module’s thickness for the benefit of better photo quality while not increasing the thickness of the phone by as much.
As expected, the renders also show off a centered selfie camera within a display cutout (no in-display selfie cam this time around) and the lack of a headphone jack. It appears Samsung is fully committed to going without the 3.5mm port in its flagships for good.
