It’s no secret that Samsung is working on its next flagship Galaxy S series which it intends to launch in January next month. Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen a lot of leaks about the phones in the series that have revealed key details about them.
Today, we have another leak which adds to the information already available about the top-end model of the upcoming line-up. According to a new report, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be able to run its screen at 1440p resolution and fast 120Hz refresh rate together. This the report claims will be because of a new LTPO-backed panel that will only be found on the top-end device, with the other two phones in the list only getting support for either 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 updated 108-megapixel HM3 sensor, which according to reports will capture 12 per cent more light than before. However, there will be no 3D Time of Flight sensor on the device to supplement the 108-megapixel main camera. Instead, the phone is tipped to use laser-assisted autofocus. The report also suggests that the Galaxy S21 Ultra will support 45W charging and have virtually no bezels to complete a clean look.
Previously, we’ve also seen other information about the device leak online. Reports in the past have said the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s screen will be between 6.7 and 6.9-inches and measure roughly 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9mm.
We also know that the phone, alongside the other S21 series phones, could launch earlier than usual, as the series is set to arrive in January 2021. This would be the earliest release for a Samsung Galaxy S flagship. The phone is expected to be launched in three models, including a top-end S21 Ultra featuring support for an S Pen and new camera capabilities.
It would be interesting to see if this headstart of sorts helps the company in any way, but what is known for sure that once the new Galaxy S devices go official, they will have enough competition to deal with from the likes of the new iPhone 12 series which has been received quite well till now. The Galaxy S21 series may also find it difficult to deal with the competition provided by the rumoured Mi 11 smartphone which again is tipped for a January launch.
