Despite the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Samsung's has had a rather busy 2019. The company has launched one phone after another in a bid to stay on top of the smartphone market. And now, it appears next year could be bit of the same for the phone maker.
Samsung is widely tipped to start 2021 with a bang as it is rumoured to launch its next flagship, the Galaxy S21 line-up -- the Galaxy S21, the S21+ and S21 Ultra -- to the world sometime in January next year. And now months ahead of the launch, we have a new exhaustive leak which details all there is to know about the internals of the top end, Galaxy S21 Ultra.
The leak comes courtesy of 91Mobiles and tipster Ishan Agarwal who have partnered to reveal that the device is codenamed internally as O3 and carries the model number SM-G998U. The report further reveals that the device will come with a Dynamic AMOLED 2X display, a 5,000mAh battery, and more.
As per the leak, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will come with a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display on the outside. While the leak doesn't confirm it, there are suggestions that this display could refresh at high rates of 144Hz.
The leak also doesn't confirm the chipset onboard, but this is expected to be a Snapdragon 875 SoC for models sold in the United States and Exynos 2100 SoC in India and other European countries. However, what the new leak does confirm is that and the device will run Android 11-based on One UI 3.0 out of the box. There will be a massive 108-megapixel primary camera at the back, while the phone will also feature a 40-megapixel front-facing camera. Running the show, according to the leak, will be a 5,000mAh battery fitted inside.
As mentioned above, the phones are likely to be launched in January. This would be the earliest release for a Samsung Galaxy S flagship. There are expected to be three models, including a top-end S21 Ultra featuring support for an S Pen and new camera capabilities.
Interestingly, it will also be the first time that Samsung launches a new Galaxy device so close to Apple's flagship iPhones. With barely months between them, a January launch for the Galaxy S21 could essentially make choosing between the two a more difficult exercise and could tip a lot of undecided buyers in Samsung's favour.
