The Galaxy S21 Ultra features one of the best displays on any smartphone
Overall, the sources claim this AMOLED panel is “one of the best displays on any smartphone,” although that isn’t very surprising considering Samsung’s extremely solid track record.
Massive upgrades in the camera department are planned too
As well as the improved screen, Samsung is developing an upgraded rear camera setup. Leading the way is a second-generation of the 108-megapixel sensor used on the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra months ago.
It’ll sit next to a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter and an advanced zoom system that includes a 10-megapixel 3x telephoto zoom camera and a 10-megapixel 10x periscope alternative.
Over in the video department, it turns out every camera will support 4K video at 60fps, although an 8K video at 30fps option is planned too.
Other features include dual recording mode, allowing users to simultaneously record with the front and rear cameras, an improved Night Mode with extra manual controls, and better Moon Mode.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 and the Exynos 2100
Sitting at the heart of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will be the next-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 in the United States and Exynos 2100 in Europe and other international markets.
For the first time in a long time, though, there seems to be some optimism about Samsung’s Exynos chipset – it will be “on-par or better than the Snapdragon 875” and more power-efficient.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra colors and material
Samsung was heavily criticized for a lack of Galaxy S20 Ultra color options, but it seems the Galaxy S21 Ultra won’t be making any improvements in that department.
The South Korean company will be offering its next-gen flagship in two colors – Phantom Black and Phantom Silver – although there’s no guarantee glass will be used because consumers responded more positively than expected to the Galaxy Note 20’s plastic build.
