Images, renders and videos of upcoming smartphones continuously leak. All of these leaks can be difficult to follow, so we’ve compiled a list of this past week’s hottest rumours.
This week we’re taking a look at smartphone leaks that occurred from December 5th to December 11th.
With the launch of Samsung’s S21 series approaching, it makes sense that leaks about the phones are appearing out at a rapid pace. The first S21 leak of the week was a teaser of the S21’s, S21+’s and S21 Ultra’s camera bump.
Both the S21’s and S21+’s bump are identical, but the S21 Ultra’s sports a 10x periscope camera alongside its primary, ultrawide and regular telephoto shooter.
There’s also a laser autofocus sensor that replaces the time-of-flight sensor featured in the S20 Ultra.

Slashleaks shared a leak of a prototype version of the front and back of the OnePlus 9.
The handset’s back reveals a camera bump that looks similar to what’s available on the Samsung Galaxy Note and S series handsets.
On the front, it looks like the camera is on the left side, but it’s difficult to tell.
While the image is blurry, you can see that the handset sports a Snapdragon 888 chipset, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and a 120Hz refresh rate 6.58-inch (or 6.56-inch) display. Additionally, the image shows off a triple camera setup with two 48-megapixel shooters and a 5-megapixel camera, and lastly, Android 11 out of the box.
