The upcoming Galaxy S21 series isn't exactly a secret anymore with numerous leaks already detailing the specifications and possible launch prices. While we have previously seen an unofficial review of the Galaxy S21 Plus, new images of the handset in the wild have now emerged thanks to known leaker @MauriQHD on Twitter.



This particular Galaxy S21 Plus seems to be the Phantom Violet variant and the leaked photos seem to be quite legitimate at first glance. The photos indicate extremely slim bezels on all four sides and a triple-camera setup at the back. There's a confidentiality sticker seen as well. Certain portions of the screen seem to be redacted to possibly protect identifiable information.
