Samsung’s next Galaxy S-series is said to be coming on January 14, earlier than the usual launch time. Many rumors and leaks on the alleged Galaxy S21 series are circulating around already and now a new tip has surfaced that claims the Galaxy S21 Ultra will support 120Hz even at QHD+ resolution.
The tip comes from Ice Universe, a known industry insider based in China. According to the tipster, the highest model of the Galaxy S21 series will offer a 120Hz refresh rate at the highest screen resolution.
Currently, the Galaxy S20 series support 120Hz at 1080p only and offers a 60Hz refresh rate at QHD+ display. Higher refresh rates consume more battery, but now, it appears Samsung has managed to balance the trade-off between the two.
After the launch of the Galaxy S20 series in February this year, it was pointed out that Samsung may enable the 120Hz on the QHD resolution with the help of a software update, but this never happened. It was a bit of hope but folks over at AnandTech explained that Samsung can’t enable the higher refresh rate on the highest resolution due to a bottleneck.
If the new tip is to be believed, we can say that Samsung might have possibly achieved what it is to be required for a higher refresh rate to run on a higher display resolution.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is tipped to sport a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display. It may run Android 11-based OneUI 3.0 out of the box and come powered by Snapdragon 875 or Exynos 2100 processor. It is expected to feature 108MP primary camera on the rear. It is said to be packing a 5,000mAh battery.
