Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra display

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is coming with a very similar design to its predecessor but much more refined. The most notable change in terms of the display is their new Blade Bezel which has significantly trimmed down the bottom bezel of the display. The Galaxy S21 Ultra is coming with a 6.9″ QHD+ AMOLED display that is an LTPO panel that can adapt its refresh rate from 1Hz to 120Hz to save on battery when 120Hz isn’t required. This will be the first time a Samsung device has been able to provide a QHD+ resolution at 120Hz. It will be protected by the latest Gorilla Glass and utilise an ultrasonic in display fingerprint scanner along with the punch hole selfie camera.

snapdragon 888 chipset

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra hardware

The Galaxy S21 Ultra will be powered by the snapdragon 888 in the North America & other snapdragon regions with the Exynos 2100 being used globally. Many reports and leakers are suggesting that the Exynos 2100 CPU wil outperform the Snapdragon 888 this year so its going to be exciting to see the launch benchmarks. While no details have been leaked yet we are expecting the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra to come with 12GB Ram & 128GB storage and we also expect Micro SD support. While these could be increased we don’t see too much benefit from doing so but will update if any more news comes in.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra cameras

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will be coming with a punch hole selfie camera on the front and a triple camera setup on the rear in this new camera housing. There were many hopes initially for the S21 Ultra to be the first to feature CUD (under display selfie camera) but unfortunately the technology wasn’t ready in time for the release. The selfie camera sensor is still unknown with some claiming they’ll be sticking to a 10MP sensor and other leakers claiming a Larger 40MP camera. For the rear camera’s we’ll be getting the 108MP main camera with the new HM3 sensor, a 12MP ultrawide camera, a 10MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom & a 10MP telephoto with 10x Optical zoom. While many do not seem to be a fan of the new S21 Ultra camera housing we think it gives the smartphone a much more premium look.

Samsung Galaxy Plus S21 Ultra battery

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is going to be powered by a 5,000 mAh battery and we know it will at least have 25W fast charging but there are rumours of a new 60W fast charge. We will at least get 15W wireless charging but there are hopes of something faster. Given its popularity we also expect to see the return of the Reverse wireless charging. There have been no leaks on this yet but whil its predecessor offered a 4.5W reverse wireless charging we’re hoping for an increase to 10W.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra additional specs

The Galaxy S21 Ultra will be 5G compatible thanks to the latest chipsets & It will be using bluetooth 5.1 to be ready for all of the latest Bluetooth accessories. We’re also getting Wifi 6 & UFS 3.1 storage and the S21 Ultra will of course be IP68 water resistant. The Galaxy S21 Ultra will of course ship with OneUI 3.1 based on android 11 & when it comes to colour options of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra we get a choice of Phantom Black or Phantom Silver. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will be coming with s pen support but will not be shipped with one. Reports are suggesting that Samsung and third party manufacturers will provide cases with an S Pen holder and we assume they will need reverse wireless charging

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra price

When it comes to pricing of the Galaxy S21 Ultra there have been multiple rumours that it will be cheaper this year due to less sales than expected on the predecessor. A new leak on the Naver blog reports of an $1250 base cost for the Galaxy S21 Ultra. While this would be incredible news we personally feel its a bit optimistic and are expecting a launch price of around $1350.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra release date

The Samsung Galaxy S21 series is expected to release much sooner this year and according to multiple leakers will be seeing its launch ahead of schedule in January. Onleaks also confirmed this when he released the latest CAD designs of the S21 line up. While we don’t have a specific date we know its arriving in January.
