Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra tipped to get 120Hz support at QHD+ resolution

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra tipped to get 120Hz support at QHD+ resolution

We’re now well in Nov, so if rumours about Samsung Galaxy S21’s launch in Jan 2021 are true, then we should be seeing more and more leaks about the Korean company’s upcoming S series flagship.

Well, here’s a couple. According to Ice universe (a.k.a. @UniverseIce), the Galaxy S21 Ultra is able to run at 2K resolution at 120Hz. If you remember, the current Galaxy S20 also supports 120Hz but you can only do it at FHD+ resolution. At its highest QHD+ resolution, you’ve to settle for 60Hz.

The same tipster also claims that the S21 Ultra will continue to feature a 108MP main sensor for the rear camera, though this will be the newer ISOCELL Bright HM3 sensor with 0.8μm pixels.

To be clear, Samsung has in Sep announced a 0.7μm-pixel sensor lineup that includes the ISOCELL HM2, but the HM3 isn’t part of it. However, the company did confirm that its pixel-enhancing ISOCELL tech is getting an upgrade to version 2.0 in new products coming later this year.

Finally, Ice universe claims that the S21 Ultra will adopt a laser AF system and drop the S20 Ultra’s Time of Flight (ToF) sensor. This isn’t surprising because that’s exactly what Samsung did on the Note 20 Ultra.
