The release of the Galaxy S21 series isn't that far off any more and more information has surfaced about the line-leading Galaxy S21 Ultra. Notable takeaways include faster charging than the Note 20 Ultra, a new 108 MP camera, and much-awaited display improvements.

Samsung is billed to launch the Galaxy S21 series in January and more information about the devices has trickled out over the past few weeks. A recent leak has now also given fans a better idea of what to expect from the leading device in the line, the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

According to tipster Ice Universe, Samsung will finally implement a 120 Hz refresh rate while at QHD+ resolution on the Galaxy S21 Ultra. While the S20 series and Note 20 Ultra both offered QHD+, 120 Hz displays, none of those phones could exert both parameters at the same. This meant that owners were limited to 120 Hz at FHD+, or 60 Hz at QHD+. Not anymore, if Ice Universe is to be believed. It's unknown if the Galaxy S21 and S21+ will also offer this feature, however.

Going by the same source, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will also support 45 W charging. While the S20+ and S20 Ultra had that feature, Samsung limited the Note 20 series to 25 W for some reason. Thankfully, the S21 Ultra will see a return to more competitive charging speeds.

Lastly, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is expected to debut Samsung's new ISOCESS Bright HM3. Samsung introduced its first 108 MP sensor, the HMX, with Xiaomi's Mi Note 10 last year, and offered an improved model, the HM1, on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The S21 Ultra will supposedly sport the HM3, skipping the HM2 which appears to be a mid-range offering.
