Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphones are widely expected to come in the form of the Galaxy S series, succeeding the Galaxy S20 range launched in the first half of this year. Ever since the news broke out about Samsung working on the Galaxy S21 Ultra handset, there have been numerous reports and leaks.
The latest leak adds to the information already provided by Samsung’s officials about the upcoming handset. According to the latest leaks by reliable tipster Ice Universe, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will have a screen with 1440p resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. The leak also says this is because of the new LTPO-backed panel that is only found on the top-end device. The other two devices in the list will be getting support for 1080p/120Hz or 1440p/60Hz.

The leak revealed numerous key details about Galaxy S21 Ultra, including the fact that it’ll use the updated 108MP HM3 sensor, which is capable of capturing 12% more light than before. Though there won’t be a 3D Time of Flight sensor to supplement the primary camera. Instead, the smartphone will use laser-assisted autofocus. The report suggests the device will support 45W fast charging and will have a bezel-free clean look.

Previously, there have been reports stating the device will come with a display between 6.7 and 6.9-inches and roughly be around 165.1×75.6×8.9mm in measurement.
Galaxy S21 Ultra expected launch date
The Galaxy S series is typically announced in Feb and is followed by the official release in March, so you can expect the same in 2021. Though rumors suggest the series could be launched as soon as January 2021 with Samsung planning to launch three models including the Galaxy S21 Ultra that features new camera capabilities and support for an S Pen.
This will make Galaxy S21 Ultra the earliest Samsung has released a device in the year. It’ll be interesting if the head start helps Samsung in any way but by the time the new Galaxy S devices officially arrive, they will already have more than enough competition from the likes of Apple with its new iPhone 12 series. The Galaxy S series could also find added competition in the form of Mi 11, which is rumored for a January launch.
