It’s no secret that Samsung is working on its next flagship Galaxy S series which it plans to launch in January next month. Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen a lot of leaks about the series phones that have revealed key details about them.
Today we have another leak that adds to the information already available on the next lineup’s high-end model. According to a new report, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be able to run its screen at 1440p resolution and a rapid 120Hz refresh rate together. This, according to the report, will be due to a new panel with LTPO support that will only be found on the high-end device, with the other two phones on the list only receiving support for 1080p / 120Hz or 1440p / 60Hz.
The new leak also reveals some other key details about the device, including the fact that the Galaxy S21 Ultra will use an upgraded 108-megapixel HM3 sensor, which is reported to be capturing 12% more light than before. However, there will be no 3D Time of Flight sensor on the device to complement the 108 megapixel main camera. Instead, the phone is tilted to use laser-assisted autofocus. The report also suggests that the Galaxy S21 Ultra will support 45W charging and will have virtually no bezels to complete a clean look.
Previously, we also saw other information about the device loss online. Reports in the past have claimed that the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s screen will be between 6.7 and 6.9 inches and will measure approximately 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9mm.
We also know that the phone, along with the other S21 series phones, could launch earlier than usual, as the series will arrive in January 2021. This would be the first version for a Samsung Galaxy S flagship. The phone is expected to launch in three models, including a high-end S21 Ultra with support for an S Pen and new camera features.
It would be interesting to see if this sort of advantage helps the company in any way, but what’s known for sure that once the new Galaxy S devices are official, they will have enough competition to face from the likes of the new iPhone 12 series that have been received pretty well so far. The Galaxy S21 series may also struggle to cope with the competition provided by the alleged Mi 11 smartphone which is again expected to launch in January.
