The Samsung Galaxy S21 was shown for the first time on render images. If the design should be final, the Galaxy S21 should split minds. The camera bulge protrudes from the rear of the housing together with the metal frame.
The render images from two different sources apparently show the smallest of the three expected Galaxy S21 models. The phone looks largely as expected from Samsung, with the exception of the back. Not only is the camera dome thicker than the rest of the frame, but the frame on the side and above the dome extends out from the rear this time. The LED flash sits to the right of the dome. One of the render image sets comes from the well-known leaker OnLeaks via Voice, another including a 3D video from xleaks and Pigtou via SamMobile .

It is to be expected that a Galaxy S21 Ultra will come up with an even thicker bulge at the back. The display of the model shown is said to be 6.2 inches and the dimensions of the smartphone are said to be roughly the same as those of the Galaxy S20. The display has a very thin bezel in the pictures and there is a selfie camera in a hole on top.
Presentation probably in January 2021
OnLeaks aka Steve Hemmersdorfer usually gets its information from manufacturer-internal CAD designs. These do not have to be representative of the final design, but are often close.
The presentation of the Galaxy S21 smartphones is supposedly scheduled for January 2021, as SamMobile writes with reference to unspecified Asian sources.
