Despite the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Samsung had a pretty intense 2019. The company launched phone after phone in an effort to stay on top of the smartphone market. And now, it looks like next year may be a bit the same for the phone manufacturer.
Samsung is largely inclined to start 2021 with a bang, as it is rumored to launch its next flagship, the Galaxy S21 line – the Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra – to the world in January next year. And now, months before launch, we have a comprehensive new escape detailing everything there is to know about the high-end interior, Galaxy S21 Ultra.
The leak comes courtesy of 91Mobiles and tipster Ishan Agarwal who teamed up to reveal that the device has an internally codenamed O3 and carries the model number SM-G998U. The report also reveals that the device will come with a 2X Dynamic AMOLED display, a 5,000mAh battery and more.
According to the leak, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will come with a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display on the outside. While the leak doesn’t confirm this, there are hints that this display may update at high frequencies of 144Hz.
The leak also does not confirm the chipset on board, but is expected to be a Snapdragon 875 SoC for models sold in the United States and the Exynos 2100 SoC in India and other European countries. However, what the new leak confirms is that the device will run Android 11 based on One UI 3.0 outside the box. There will be a huge 108 megapixel main camera on the back, while the phone will also be equipped with a 40 megapixel front camera. Leading the show, according to the leak, will be a 5,000 mAh battery inserted inside.
As mentioned above, the phones are likely to launch in January. This would be the first version for a flagship of the Samsung Galaxy S. There should be three models, including a high-end S21 Ultra with support for an S Pen and new camera features.
Interestingly, it will also be the first time Samsung has launched a new Galaxy device this close to iPhone Apple’s flagship. Barely months between them, a January launch for the Galaxy S21 could essentially make choosing between the two a more difficult exercise and could tip many undecided buyers in Samsung’s favor.
