With this leak, we now have a better idea of what to expect, especially in the camera department, which appears to be a large part of Samsung’s plan to rival the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra is said to include telephoto lenses with capacities of 3x and 10x (equivalent focal lengths of 72mm and 240mm, respectively), with optical image stabilization feature.
The upcoming 10x telephoto lens uses a foldable optical design, similar to the telephoto lens design of the Galaxy S20 lineup.
Samsung is expected to offer once again a hybrid zoom that goes much further than the 10x optical zoom.
The 108MP main camera gets a slightly larger 24mm parabolic lens, instead of 26mm, and it also gets laser assisted autofocus.
Video could be the basis for Samsung to compete with Apple, as it is one of the areas where software can do a lot without the right hardware.
Samsung usually has a lot of big specifications to promote when it comes to video, as the Galaxy S21 Ultra offers 8K recording instead of 4K for the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The company says it is committed to continuing to enhance its capabilities in this area, and there are some notable details not related to the camera in the WinFuture report.
These specifications confirm that the screen comes in 6.8 inches with variable refresh rates from 1 to 120 Hz, which is a battery-saving step, and there is also support for the S Pen, which is sold separately.
Samsung is also following the example of Apple by selling Galaxy S21 devices without the wall chargers included in the box.
The company, like Apple, is likely to cite environmental benefits as the driver behind the change, although skeptics note that the move is also beneficial to the company’s profits.
It is mentioned that there is no confirmed launch date or price yet for the Galaxy S21 Ultra, although reports indicate the possibility of announcing it on January 14th.
