Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra display could support 120Hz at WQHD resolution

Leaks surrounding the Galaxy S21 series have already started making their way to the internet despite the official unveiling of the devices still over two months away. The latest leak courtesy of @UniverseIce has revealed some key specs of the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

The device will feature a 120Hz Dynamic AMOLED LTPO panel but unlike the Galaxy S20 and Note20 Ultra, it will actually be able to support the high refresh rate at WQHD resolution. Existing Samsung flagships do feature a 120Hz display but that is only available when running the displays at FHD+ resolution. The use of an LTPO panel is also a big deal as it allows for a variable refresh rate which will help reduce power consumption. Samsung is already using an LTPO panel on the Galaxy Note20 Ultra.

Other specs of the Galaxy S21 Ultra revealed by the leaker point to the device supporting 45W fast charging and featuring a 108MP HM3 primary camera sensor. Despite supporting 45W fast charging, Samsung is only expected to bundle a 25W USB-C fast charger with the Galaxy S21 Ultra as it has done with its other devices.

Samsung plans to announce the Galaxy S21 series earlier than usual next year to counter the iPhone 12 series from Apple. A recent leak points to the company announcing the Galaxy S21 series in mid-January and putting the devices on sale by the end of the month. Like the Galaxy S20 series, Samsung intends to launch three different Galaxy S21 models next year, with renders of all three devices already being leaked.
