Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S21 series on January 14. The world’s largest smartphone maker has even opened blind pre-orders in India.

Galaxy S21 Series Renders 02

According to a South Korean YouTube channel called Super Roader (via LetsGoDigital), the entire Galaxy S21 lineup will come equipped with a reinforced polycarbonate back panel just like the Galaxy Note20 and Galaxy S20 FE.

Anyway, this is not the first time we are hearing about Samsung using a plastic back for the Galaxy S21 series. But the previous reports suggested that only the regular Galaxy S21 and Galaxy 21+ will feature this material. On the other hand, the new piece of information says that even the ultra-premium Galaxy S21 Ultra

will come with a plastic rear panel.

The YouTuber(Johyun Lee) who shared this detail is an ex-Samsung employee and he has previously revealed some accurate details about unreleased products. Hence, if his new tip happens to be true, then Samsung will be ditching the glass back design for the Galaxy S series after six years since it was introduced in the Galaxy S6 series.
