Galaxy S21 Ultra may be the first Samsung phone to support 120Hz at QHD+

The S20 Ultra may just be the first Samsung phone to run 120Hz at QHD+ resolution.

What you need to know

  • A new report suggests that the Galaxy S21 Ultra may offer 120Hz refresh rate at QHD+ resolution.
  • The new feature doesn't seem to be coming to the regular Galaxy S21 and the Galaxy S21+.
  • The Galaxy S21 series will reportedly launch on January 14, 2021.

Samsung's next flagship smartphone series, the Galaxy S21-series, is reportedly set for a debut on January 14. Much like the Galaxy S20 lineup, the Galaxy S21 series will come in three variants, including the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

According to a new report from Ice universe (also known as @UniverseIce), a known industry insider based in China, the Ultra variant of the Galaxy S21 may be the first Samsung phone to offer a 120Hz refresh rate at a QHD+ resolution.

All three variants of the Galaxy S21 are believed to come with a 120Hz QHD+ display, however, the report implies that only the Ultra version will be able to utilize the high refresh rate mode and the QHD+ resolution at the same time. If the report is believed to be true, the reason is most likely due to the Galaxy S21 Ultra having a sufficient battery capacity to handle the new feature.

This feature has been in high demand ever since Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy Note 20-series, which only support 120Hz at 1080p and 60Hz at QHD+ resolution. The lack of the feature has been often attributed to the power demands of simultaneously using a high refresh rate at a high resolution.

Since it seems that Samsung isn't making any meaningful upgrades in display resolution or refresh rate this time around, it's great to hear that the display on the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be able to handle a 120Hz refresh rate and a QHD+ resolution at the same time. OPPO and OnePlus already offer devices that hit 120Hz at QHD+ in the Find X2 Pro and 8 Pro, so it is good to see that Samsung will do so as well with the S21 Ultra in 2021.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.
