The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 series has been leaked in renders and has been part of the rumour mills for quite some time now. The South Korean smartphone company is speculated to launch Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra. Out of the three devices, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is most anticipated and has been making lots of news while the latest round includes details on the camera capabilities. Recently the rear camera setup of the smartphone was tweaked showing some changes to the camera setup on the most premium model in the upcoming flagships series. But the most recent leaks reveal a new 108-megapixel sensor and the absence of the ToF sensor.
According to popular tipster Ice Universe, the Samsung Galaxy S21 will be receiving small improvement in its camera set up. The primary sensor is a 108MP camera and the Time of Flight (ToF) camera among others is the biggest USP of the existing top model S20 Ultra. But the tipster claims that the three will be an ISOCELL HM3 sensor. While the 108-megapixel camera will have a pixel size of 0.8µm with a laser focus module. However, there will not be a ToF sensor onboard for the camera system instead it might have another telephoto sensor.
Apart from this the Samsung’s flagships series is reported to launch on January 14 with pre-orders beginning the same day. The smartphone is said to go on sale on January 29. Usually, the company hosts the Unpacked event in February every year but this time the company will arrive with Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra a little soon to take on Apple iPhone 12 series. As per the tipster, the phones will be available in Black, White, Grey, Silver, Violet and Pink colours.
Coming back to the camera details of the Galaxy S20 Ultra is tipped to come with four camera sensors and an additional unknown sensor. The previous render leaks show Penta rear camera set up. However, the details of the fifth one is yet to be known. The existing model has a quad rear camera setup with flash support but the upcoming device has five cutouts and the fifth one is an unknown sensor.
In the past, the specs of the smartphone were also leaks suggesting Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra to Android 11-based One UI 3.0. The device is said to feature a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a high refresh rate of 144Hz.
