The Galaxy S21 line might as well be getting announced today. Because what we’re bringing to you now is an info dump from Germany that’s as full-featured as an official Samsung press release. It even comes complete with high-resolution images of the Galaxy S21 Ultra in Phantom Black and Phantom Silver.
Procured by known industry insider Roland Quandt of WinFuture, this huge leak pretty much confirms full specs of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, in addition to shedding more light on the rest of Samsung’s incoming flagship lineup. Quite a development seeing how it’s barely been a few hours since we’ve seen a legitimate five-minute review of the Galaxy S21+, right?
Will the Galaxy S21 Ultra make up for the camera shortcomings of its predecessor?
Let’s start with the basics, as this particular leak describes the international variant of the Galaxy S21 Ultra. This would be the one powered by the Exynos 2100, Samsung’s most promising chipset in over half a decade. The said silicon is an octa-core affair with four 2.4GHz high-efficiency cores, a triple-core, 2.8GHz cluster focused on performance, and one final 2.9GHz champ that’s here to flex on benchmarks all day long.
A 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel, still advertised as the Infinity-O-Edge, constitutes the face of the Galaxy S21 Ultra. And it ups the smoothness bar of Samsung’s previous flagships by supporting 120Hz imagery all the way up to WQHD+, or 2K (3,200 x 1,440) resolutions. One UI 3.1 based on Android 11 is also here, as is a 12GB RAM configuration and a choice between 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage.
The front camera of the device is a 40-megapixel unit with a 25mm lens sitting in front of it, which is almost as wide-angle as you can go without ending up in the fisheye territory.
This is a developing story…
