The upcoming Galaxy S21 Ultra might come with a 6.8-inch WQHD+ display which will support an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The smartphone might come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor, which is expected to be announced next month. Though the Snapdragon model might remain exclusive to select markets such as the US and China. While other markets including India, the smartphone might come equipped with the upcoming Exynos 2100 processor. Exynos 2100 features an integrated 5G modem, so the upcoming S21 series devices will be the first S series devices to launch with 5G connectivity in the country.

One of these telephoto lenses will support 3x optical zoom, while other one will be a 10x optical telephoto lens. On the front, the Samsung flagship might offer a 40MP selfie shooter.
