    The Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be unveiled in early January, and the phones are expected to go on sale later that month. Early renders of the upcoming smartphones have already been leaked along with their battery capacities. Now, new information regarding the Galaxy S21 Ultra's camera has surfaced.

    According to @UniverseIce, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will bring a small improvement over the Galaxy S20 Ultra in terms of the primary camera. The upcoming flagship smartphone will reportedly use the ISOCELL HM3 camera sensor with 108MP resolution and 0.8μm pixels. The new sensor is claimed to offer 12% better light sensitivity, allowing the phone to capture slightly more details. It will also help the Galaxy S21 Ultra in capturing images faster in low-light conditions.

    More importantly, Samsung will reportedly drop the 3D ToF sensor that is used in the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The company will switch the 3D ToF sensor with laser autofocus on the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which will aid in more reliable autofocus in low-light conditions and closer subjects. Samsung had already made its move to switch to laser autofocus with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

    It is still not clear if the Galaxy S21 Ultra will feature a quad-camera or a penta-camera setup. The phone is expected to feature a flat Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a 120Hz refresh rate, QHD+ resolution, and HDR10+. The Galaxy S21 Ultra could debut with Android 11-based One UI 3.1, Exynos 2100 or Snapdragon 875 processor, and a 5,000mAh battery.
