Samsung Galaxy S21+, Galaxy S21 Ultra Colour Variants
Samsung Galaxy S21 series fresh renders have surfaced online to suggest new color options ahead of the Galaxy Unpacked 2021 event. The renders suggest that while Samsung Galaxy S21+ could feature a total of five different colors, the Galaxy S21 Ultra could come in three additional shades alongside the earlier rumored Phantom Black and Phantom Silver — with a carbon fiber-like finish on the camera housing. Separately, pre-order offers on the Galaxy S21 series have been leaked. The retail box of the Galaxy S21+ has also been leaked which suggests the absence of an in-box charger and earbuds.
Roland Quandt of WinFuture.de tweeted the renders indicating the new colors of the Samsung Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra. The renders suggest the Galaxy S21+ may come in bronze and red color versions — alongside the earlier rumored Phantom Black, Phantom Silver, and Phantom Violet. The two new colors may not come on the regular Galaxy S21 at least initially, though that model is also rumored to get the three color options as well as the Phantom Pink model.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra fresh renders, on the other hand, suggest blue, brown, and gray color options. These are likely to come alongside the Phantom Black and Phantom Silver colors that are already a part of the rumor mill. The three newly suggested color variants of the Galaxy S21 Ultra appear to have a carbon fiber-like pattern on the camera housing.
Quandt mentioned that the new color shades would be available as “Custom Colors” for the Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra. This suggests that the new colors could be limited in quality or to certain markets.
Aside from the renders suggesting the Galaxy S21 series color options, Quandt also tweeted some images to indicate the launch of the Samsung Wireless Charger Pad Duo EP-P4300. This could come with 9W wireless charging for compatible phones and 3.5W wireless charging for smartwatches. The new solution could be Samsung’s answer to Apple’s MagSafe Duo Charger.
Quandt further tweeted a few images showing the Samsung Wireless Charger EP-P1300. This could support 9W wireless charging.
Separately, tipster Evan Blass has leaked a couple of images that hint at the bundling of the Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy SmartTag for customers pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra following its launch. In contrast, the Samsung Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 pre-ordering customers appear to get the Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy SmartTag.
Blass has also leaked another image that purportedly shows the retail box of the Samsung Galaxy S21+. It seems to have a thinner design over the box of the Galaxy S20+, which suggests the absence of the in-box charger and earbuds. Some previous reports have already suggested the move that could be in line with Apple’s decision to offer its latest iPhone models without in-box accessories.
Samsung is hosting the Galaxy Unpacked 2021 event on Thursday, January 14 where the Galaxy S21 series is quite likely to debut. Meanwhile, we can expect some new rumors and teasers to emerge online.
