Rumours suggest that Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra with feature a quad-camera. The primary camera will be a 108-megapixel sensor and the other three will be Time of Flight camera i.e. ToF. Samsung may take a different direction for Galaxy S21 Ultra.
We already know that Samsung will be launching S21, S21+, S21 Ultra on January 14 which will have four rear camera setup. According to a known tipster Ice Universe, who has recently revealed that there will be no Tof for Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra in the camera setup.
The tweet that he posted a few days ago stated that Galaxy S21 Ultra will come packed with ISOCELL HM3 sensor. The 108-megapixel camera setup will have laser focus and have a pixel size of 0.8µm. He also said in his tweet that there will be no ToF sensor in the camera.
What is ToF Sensor?
ToF is Time of Flight which is used to capture depth details when taking a photo in portrait mode or recording live focus videos. This sensor can be seen in the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra which is 0.3 Megapixel sensor with f/1.0 aperture. Since the tweet suggests that Galaxy S21 Ultra will be lacking this sensor, it may suggest that Samsung will be working on a workaround or have another way of capturing the depth of field details.
In another tweet of Ice Universe disclosed that Galaxy S21 Ultra will maybe have QHD+ Display with 2K resolution and have 120Hz refresh rate. This may affect battery usage but we believe that samsung has a way to work this out.
It is also known that the flagship devices will be launched early next year which will have a centre punch hole camera. Depending on the market the phone will be power with Snapdragon 875 or Samsung Exynos 2100 processor.
